“The cost of social exclusion per cohort in Lund, Sweden is approximately € 154 million”
“This year, 1365 six year olds start elementary school in Lund. According to statistics 146 of them become socially excluded later in life. By the time they have turned 65 years old, this will have added up to the above mentioned amount. This excluding the cost of human anguish. By early intervention, we can prevent and combat social exclusion.
Sweden is an economically prosperous welfare society. Even though, more than 12% in each cohort become socially excluded in society. This causes not only human suffering but also enormous economical costs. An individual who enters social exclusion from the age 20 until he/she retires, cost society between € 1,4–1,6 million. This derives from all welfare costs (health care, rehabilitation, nursing, judiciary costs, health care interventions, etc.) on top of this comes the production loss throughout their adult lives. This, per cohort, becomes a cost of about € 154 million. The price of social exclusion by five cohorts is as high as Sweden’s national debt! Source: www.skandia.se
Attention: Lund, with a population of about 116 000, is used as an example regarding the cost of social exclusion.
