Despite the significant amount of primary information consisting of the Swedish parish records, the demographical studies about the Sami population in Sweden are until today scarcely investigated. The few surveys that are done focuses on the Northern Sami population, which leaves the Southern Sami population almost without any further examination considering their demographical paths. The presentation focuses on the demographical pattern among the Southern Sami population in Sweden during the years 1860-1890. The longitudinal study includes two Sami parishes in Jämtland and considers population development, marriage and fertility among the inhabitants. The results are analysed and compared to a Northern Sami area and to the average Swedish population.
