The National Board of Health and Welfare has, in accordance with the Proposition on Women’s Safety (Kvinnofridspropositionen 1997/98:55), been assigned by the Swedish government to gather information on and to monitor the extent and development of prostitution, and of social measures applied at the local level. The first report in connection with that assignment was published in 2000 under the title of ?Prostitution in Sweden, 1998? 1999?.(Kännedom om prostitution 1998?1999). It is now followed up with this, the second report which focuses on the extent and development of prostitution. This report is based primarily on interviews with a number of individuals whose work involves dealing with prostitution. We also cite the relevant research in this area.
