The demography of Sweden is monitored by Statistics Sweden (SCB). As of 31 December 2015, the population of Sweden was estimated to be 9.85 million people, making it the 90th most populous country in the world. The figure is projected to reach ten million in the course of 2016. The three biggest cities are Stockholm, Gothenburg and Malmö. Approximately 85% of the country's population resides in its urban areas

The 2005 Swedish census showed an increase of 475,322 compared to the 1990 census, an average increase of 31,680 annually. During the 1990s, birth rate increased by more than 100,000 children per year while death rates fell and immigration surged. In the early 2000s, birth rate declined as immigration increased further, with the context of unrest in the Middle East, upholding steady population growth.
