Potential Nordic population 2030
2008 (English)In: Journal of Nordregio, ISSN 1650–5891, Vol. 8, no 1Article in journal (Other (popular science, discussion, etc.)) Published
The population of the Nordic countries will have increased by almost 10 % in 2030 as compared to that of today. Moreover, further concentration of the population to the urban and metropolitan areas will continue to influence population development. The family will play a more important role, with higher fertility and nuptality rates. Obesity and increased socio-economic polarisation will however lower life-expectancy. The Nordic countries will also have to face up to the emigration of persons with an immigrant background as a consequence of failed integration policies. Problems with labour shortage will persist due to imperfections in the workings of the labour market.
