A few interesting comments:
From the mid 19th century the increase is fairly constant at abt 40 000 / year. The actual increase is larger than that since there was a substantial emigration in the late 19th century and the early 20th century - almost 1 million net.

Note the accelerated population growth between 1940 and 1945 (WW II). Sweden was not fighting that war and the increase (300 000) in those FIVE years is the same as the previous TEN years (double speed)
