Expenditure on elderly care in Sweden 2014-2018

The expenditure on elderly care in Sweden was relatively stable during the last five years. The highest amount during the period was reached in 2018, when 126.3 billion Swedish kronor were spent on care for the elderly. The expenditure as a share of gross domestic product was at the same level of 2.7 percent during the period from 2014 to 2016, which is higher than the 2.6 percent spent during the following two years.

Highest expenditure for special housing

     The largest amount of the total expenditure for elderly care in 2018 was for special housing, a sum that amounted to 71.8 billion Swedish kronor. Elderly care in Sweden is administered at a municipal level, and therefore the special housing can look different for different municipalities, but the definition is housing for elderly with a large need for care, who are not able to live alone.  

Elderly are a growing population

      In 2018, 19.9 percent of the Swedish population was 65 years and older. 5.1 percent was 80 years and older, and one percent was 90 years and older. It is expected that the largest percentual increase of the population in Sweden until 2028 will occur among individuals 80 years and older.
