At the beginning of the 20th century, almost 12 million people lived in the Nordic countries. Today, the population has increased to close to 26 million people – more than a doubling. The strongest growth is seen in Greenland, where the population has multiplied by almost five, from 12 000 to 57 000 people. In Iceland the increase has gone from 78 000 to 319 000 people. The population on the Faroe Islands has more than tripled, from 15 000 to 48 000 people. The Swedish and Ålandic populations are the only ones that have not at least doubled.
