Number of employed people in Sweden 2009-2019

The number of employed people in Sweden increased annually, from around 4.5 million in 2009 to over 5.1 million in 2019 among the 10.23 million in the population. The increase in the number of employed depends partly on the increase of the working age population that occurred during the same period.

The employment rate

     Furthermore, the employment in the Swedish society also depended on the financial state, both within the own country but also on a global scale. The lowest point of employment was in 2010, when the employment rate was 64.4 percent, which was a consequence of the financial crisis in 2008 and 2009.  

Different employment rate for men and women

    The employment rate increased annually from 2010 to 2018, but decreased slightly in 2019, when it was measured at 68.3 percent. It differed among men and women during the whole period from 2009 to 2019, where the employment among men generally was higher. In 2019, the employment rate for men was 70.5 percent, while it was 66.1 percent for women.
