The trend of increasing immigration to Sweden continued in 2009 in spite of the economic downturn, with inflows reaching a new record high of 102 000. The largest component of the inflow was returning Swedish citizens, followed by citizens from Iraq, Somalia and Poland. In parallel, total emigration declined by 13% compared with the previous year, resulting in an overall net migration of almost 56 000 persons. Preliminary figures for 2010 on the basis of residence permits indicate a decline in immigration for that year.
