Abstract:The STATIV database is constructed by Statistics Sweden from several administrative data registers in Sweden. It covers the entire population registered as resident in Sweden on the 31st of December of each year. The quality of coverage of the database thus depends on the over‐ or undercoverage of the population register. Under‐coverage of newborns or the overcoverage due to deaths is small, although over‐coverage of individuals who left country without de‐registering from the public records is somewhat higher (estimated around 35 000 in 2004), but concerns mostly Swedish citizens (SCB, 2011).
