Population in Skellefteå villages

I had an hour today so I started looking into population figures in Skellefteå municipality because I've still got that idea that the focus for growth should be put to rural areas over the town centre.

In short, a byproduct of rural investment and creating opportunities will see more people move here, more money be generated and more money ultimately spent. If the town centre has more attractions, then that is where people are going to go.

But there is little evidence to really suggest that it would work other than a belief, but if you continue to invest in the centre that will merely get bigger while everything outside of the centre will just get smaller. And for that, there is plenty of evidence.
