Abstract

The world population growth accelerated in the eighteenth century, which caused real wages to decline in most countries. Recent data for Sweden implies that population growth was stronger in the seventeenth century than in the eighteenth century, while Swedish real waged increased during the seventeenth century and decreased in the eighteenth century. This study attempts to resolve the anomaly, and argues that recent estimates of Swedish population and mortality rates are too low for the seventeenth century. It presents revised annual demographic data for Sweden 1630-1750, pointing towards that there was small acceleration in early modern growth. However, the acceleration was not as pronounced as in the rest of the world.
