Who lives in the Swedish suburbs? What do they have in common?

The problem areas listed by the police are extensive in Stockholm. More than 35,000 people live in Rinkeby-Tensta. What is it that unites all the suburbs? We will try to find out.

The population of Stockholm in the end of 2018 was 962,154 inhabitants.
A total of 126,946 inhabitants live in the problematic suburbs of Stockholm, Husby, Rinkeby, Tensta, Solberga, Bredäng, Hagsätra, Rågsved, Hässelby, Vällingby, Vårberg and Österberga. Thus, 13.19% of the population live in the suburbs of the city.
Of the 126,946 residents living in the problem area, those born abroad OR in Sweden, and both of whose parents were born abroad, are totally 89,037 people. That is, 70.14% of people in all problem areas are foreigners.

70.14% of the people in all the problem areas in Stockholm are foreigners.

In most of the problem areas in Stockholm, the proportion of immigrants is more than half. Most foreigners are found in Rinkeby, 91.26%. As a minority, foreigners are only in Solberga, where they are 38.48% and in Vällingby, 44.45%. In all other suburbs, the proportion of foreigners was well over half.
I still counted on the share of Asians and Africans in these neighborhoods. It has 64,213 people. My result was, that Asians and Africans account for 50.58% of the problem areas in Stockholm.
Thus, the conclusion is very simple: the bigger the alien background of a suburb is, the more likely the suburb will be a ”very problematic area”. And when the area’s entrants come from a certain direction in the world, it is more likely that the neighborhood becomes problematic than not.

My result was, that Asians and Africans account for 50.58% of the problem areas in Stockholm.

The statistics have been retrieved from the demographic statistics of the City of Stockholm.
