The Swedish Crime Prevention Council Brå has commissioned a study comparing crime rates of native Swedes to migrants.

According to the agency, the study was commissioned after a “great demand” for statistics relating to the relationship between mass migration and crime. 

“A study will be carried out regarding registered suspicions of crimes among persons with a domestic and foreign background. The study will contain similar issues as in the authority’s study from 2005,

but its design will make it possible to follow developments over time and also highlight more issues than in the previous study,” Brå said in a press release.

“A number of crimes are to be examined including violent crimes and sexual crimes such as rape and sexual assaults. A new study is needed for decision makers to have access to updated data.

The results are planned to be published in early 2021,” they added.
