300,000 people enjoy a high quality of life

Position Väst has approximately 300,000 inhabitants, and compared to the metropolitan regions of Gothenburg and Oslo, people here enjoy an entirely different quality of life. Expansion surfaces are readily available. On average, we have 33 inhabitants per square kilometre. For the past 20 years, the number of inhabitants in the area has remained virtually unchanged.

Almost half of the population lives in the three neighbouring municipalities of Trollhättan, Uddevalla and Vänersborg, who together constitute our “metropolis” with three city centres. The remainder of the population in Position Väst has chosen to live in smaller cities or communities, out in the country or in the archipelago.
