Abstract [en]

Population-Weighted Density is a relatively new and interesting concept of measuring the density as experienced by the average resident. Because it is so relatively new, there is almost no data on PWD in official statistics, except for recent US data. To assist in rectifying this lack of data, this study constructs a PWD dataset for Sweden, the Swedish municipalities and counties from 1990-2015. This dataset is constructed using localities and parishes as observations. Population-Weighted Density for Sweden was found to be much higher compared to simple density, 2288.8 people per square kilometre instead of 24.0 for 2015. The PWD also increased at a faster rate than simple density during the period 1990-2015, meaning that the Swedish population became increasingly concentrated.
