Assessment and recommendations

In many areas, Sweden is at or close to the frontier, with high per capita income, low inequality and poverty rates, good health status and environmental quality, a sound balance between work and life and high trust in institutions. Moreover, GDP growth has been strong in recent years (). These good outcomes are the fruit of sound macroeconomic policies and substantial structural reforms that have also helped to cope with economic, demographic and other shocks.
