observations
Populated islands
The number of populated islands has been counted based on information about registered persons per property on 31 December of the year in question. Islands that do not have buildings according to Lantmäteriet´s building register are assumed to have no population.
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.
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.
