Definition of island:
In the statistics, Statistics Sweden defines islands as land areas surrounded by water, according to Lantmäteriet´s (the national land survey office) real estate map´s data set layer MV that represents water (lakes and large watercourses). The water map of Lantmäteriet shows water in the scale 1:10 000 within the borders of Sweden. The hole in the water map has formed the islands. The statistics also include islands surrounded by artificial water and artificial islands. Examples of these are piers, pond islands, castles completely surrounded by a moat and other types of islands separated from other land areas by a canal that has been dug. The smallest islands have an area of 9 square metres.

Number of islands
Number of islands by municipality refers to islands that completely or partly are situated within the boundaries of the municipality. The same island can thus be counted in several municipalities. The same applies to islands that extend beyond county boundaries. Therefore summations cannot be done from municipality to county or the country, or from county to the country.
Number of islands with buildings
Data from Lantmäteriet’s Land Registry, with information about real properties and buildings in Sweden.
Number of islands with housing
Housing on islands: buildings used for residential purpose.
observations: Number of islands , year: 2013
Comparisons between 2013 and earlier years are not to be done due to considerable differences in the source data. The statistics from 2013 are based on data with better quality and partly in another scale compares to source data for statistics from 2000. The increase in the number of islands, their surface and perimeter is largely due to quality improvements in the basic data. The differences are the greatest in the mountain ranges, which particularly affects the statistics in the northern counties and municipalities. But the statistics for all municipalities and counties in the country are assumed to be affected by the quality improvements.
