The impact of computerization on population registration in Sweden

With computerization of the civil registration process gaining momentum in many industrialized countries as well as some developing nations it is interesting to see how this movement has impacted civil registration in one of the countries in which civil registration has the longest history. As in other Scandinavian countries, Sweden has integrated the civil registration system into the more comprehensive population registration system. While computerization has reduced the cost of population registration and improved the quality of information, the author notes that "the general public have not been affected to any great extent by the fact that the local registration has been computerized". She also notes that "The basic need for population registration information could also be satisfied perfectly well before computerization of the local registers.
