15 Mar 2018
Almost 15% of the Nordic population is born elsewhere than in their country of living. The highest share of foreign born population can be found in Southern- and Mid-Sweden in larger city regions of Stockholm, Gothenburg and Malmö, and in larger city regions of Oslo and Bergen in Norway.
Also on national level Sweden and Norway have a larger share of foreign born population than the other Nordic Countries. In Finland the share of foreign born population is very low in some regions. In Faroe Islands and Greenland the share of foreign born population is relatively high, but dominated by persons born in Denmark.
