Gotland does not have a county council. This was also the case for Göteborg and Malmö municipalities before 1998. In 1998, the county council constituencies were regrouped. Kristianstads and Malmöhus county councils were combined with the municipality of Malmö to create Skåne county council. It is therefore not possible to make comparisons over time. Göteborg county council and Bohuslän county council were combined with the municipality of Göteborg, Älvsborgs county council and Skaraborg county council to form Västra Götalands county council. The municipalities of Mullsjö and Habo were then incorporated in to Jönköpings county council. It is therefore not possible to make comparisons over time. The Riksdag decided 2005-11-30 that Heby municipality should be transfered from Västmanlands county to Uppsala county 2007-01-01.
