The Swedish daily Svenska Dagbladet has made a report on manipulates that are loosers and those that are winners when it comes to classification of the best places to live in.

The newspaper draws from a report made by the consultancy organisation WSP's ranking of Sweden's 290 municipalities for best and worst strength in terms of economic and social life. These municipalities would also be those that vulnerable to wide fluctuation in its economic activities.

The ranking is based among other things on the level of education, employment, industry concentration and the local business confidence. In that vein, Filipstad and Gällivare are ranked as the most vulnerable, while Lidingö and Taby are judged as strongest.

The solution is to merge the small and weak municipalities to larger municipalities, according to several members of parliament. These politicians want Sweden to learn from Denmark, which succeeded to resolve some of  its problem region issues this way.
