Minorities

Since the end of the second world war Sweden has received many immigrants from Finland, other Nordic countries, and south-eastern Europe, as well as refugee immigrants from Africa and the middle east. These immigrants and their children now comprise about 10% of the total population. In 1993 Sweden had 500,000 resident aliens. Over 100,000 of these were Finns. Other groups include Yugoslavs, Iranians, Norwegians, Danes, Turks, Chileans, Poles, Germans, Britons, Ethiopians, Americans, Lebanese, Greeks, and Romanians.[1]
