The expenditure on primary education in Sweden increased significantly since 2009.

The expenditure had raised to X billion Swedish kronor by 2018, and an expenditure per pupil of 112.2 thousand.

Decreasing number of schools and increasing number of pupils

     The primary schools in Sweden are administered individually by each of the 290 municipalities in the country, and during the period from 2012 to 2018, the number of primary schools decreased. In contrast, the number of pupils attending primary school increased constantly since the schoolyear 2009/10, and in the schoolyear of 2019/20, around 1.09 million pupils attended primary school.  

Increasing number of pupils per primary school

   Not surprisingly, the decrease in number of schools and the increase in number of pupils led to an annual increase in the average number of pupils per primary school from 2012 to 2019. In 2019, there were 225 pupils per primary school registered.
