Edit request: found the missing citation, 25 July 2011[edit]

I found the citation that is missing under the education section, 3rd paragraph, in the part that talks about tertiary education:

https://www.tilastokeskus.fi/artikkelit/2006/art_2006-07-06_001.html

I found this citation source in the article about Finland, which discussed a similar set of statistics about its own tertiary education system.

Thanks!

Swedish 2017 GDP has reviewed[edit]

Hosseiniran Search the page for "2030". It's been in there for two years now. Thank you Valentina Cardoso (talk) 20:16, 12 February 2017 (UTC)
@Valentina Cardoso: check here and here and here. i think it's better to add these resources to. --– Hossein Iran « talk » 11:36, 13 February 2017 (UTC)
The sources all build on the same report and a couple of things should be noted: The report doesn't say that Sweden will become a third world country. If you look at the numbers you will see that Sweden's predicted HDI for 2013 is .906 which is still very high. The reason it falls behind is that other countries improve so much. Secondly, the paper notes that "The findings, interpretations and conclusions are strictly those of the authors and do not necessarily represent the views of UNDP or United Nations Member States". Thirdly, Speisa isn't a reliable source per Wikipedia standards and the other two appear not to be, either. Sjö (talk) 11:58, 13 February 2017 (UTC)
The Swedish fact-checking site Viralgranskaren (sv:Viralgranskaren) had an article about the claim that Sweden will become a third world country by 2030. One of the authors is interviewed and says that claim is a complete misinterpretation of the report. An employee of UNDP tells Viralgranskaren that the paper didn't meet the necessary academic and methodological standards, that it's not supported by the Human Development Report Office of the UNDP and that it's been removed from the website. In short, there's nothing in the report to support that Sweden will be a third world country in the future. Sjö (talk) 07:22, 14 February 2017 (UTC)
Should not the statement be removed for the article entirely? I mean if the UN thinks their own report does not hold up and have removed it, should not Wikipedia also do the same thing? Or did I missunderstand your post, Sjö? Dnm (talk) 08:38, 14 February 2017 (UTC)
I considered suggesting that, since it might be WP:UNDUE, but then I thought I'd let other editors weigh in first.Sjö (talk) 09:26, 14 February 2017 (UTC)

Semi-protected edit request on 3 April 2017[edit]

Edit request on Religion[edit]

1. The table of membership in the Church of Sweden needs 2016's numbers added: Citizens: 9 995 153 Members: 6 116 480 Percentage of population: 61,2%

2. The reference to 2015's member percent in paragraph 4 needs to be changed to 2016's. "At the end of 2015, 63.2% of Swedes belonged to the Church of Sweden..." > "At the end of 2016, 61.2% of Swedes belonged to the Church of Sweden..."

I'd also recommend mentioning the record high drop of members in 2016: Almost twice the amount of members leaving in 2015 left in 2016. See: http://www.di.se/nyheter/rekordtapp-for-svenska-kyrkan/

3. The last paragraph's last sentence says: "This is evidenced by the fact that around 70% of adults continue to remain members of the Swedish Church[229] despite having to pay a church tax; moreover, rates of baptism remain high and church weddings are increasing.[228]"

I think the whole paragraph is nonsense. I suspect it was put on Wikipedia not as an objective fact but to make readers believe Swedes being reluctant to the words "atheist" or "atheism", and by that indirectly believers/Christians. Mr Phil Zuckerman did not interview more than 150 persons! And he interviewed both Swedes and Danes, so there's no statistical significance to his findings whatsoever. His study is qualitative research on at most 149 Swedes and is therefore not at all relevant here. ("Zuckerman formally interviewed nearly 150 Danes and Swedes of all ages and educational backgrounds over the course of fourteen months." https://www.amazon.com/Society-without-God-Religious-Contentment/dp/0814797237)

However the one who edits this sees what I've written above, the "around 70%" should be changed to "around 60%". (A drop in membership of 8.8% doesn't show anything in the veins of what the last paragraph wants to make us think is true though.)

For the statistics, see the Church of Sweden's own webpage: https://www.svenskakyrkan.se/statistik

Partly done: 2016 data added. Your last point seems to suggest WP:SYNTH. – Train2104 (t • c) 03:02, 7 June 2017 (UTC)
