Slovenes in Sweden: a short processing of statistical Data (2001)

The Slovenes in Sweden have in 1998 lost their weekly Slovene radio broadcast. The fate of teaching children Slovene language also has a dark future. National identity of Slovenes in Sweden is endangered. The author has decided to establish as precise a number of Slovenes in Sweden as possible. With the help of the State bureau for statistics in Sweden she came to the number: on December 31st 1999 5.098 Slovenes lived in Sweden.
