The Swedish School Registry (sv: Skolenhetsregistret) has data on all Swedish elementary and high schools. The data is maintained by Statistics Sweden and is reliable. Note that the school registry deals with "school units", of which there can be several for a single school. For instance, one school can have one unit for the years 4-6 and one for the years 7-9. This is just the way the school system is organized in Sweden. Popperipopp (talk) 11:39, 14 January 2020 (UTC)

@Pintoch: This is my first property proposal and I'm not sure what I need to change. I added descriptions in Swedish and English in case that was the error. --Popperipopp (talk) 09:18, 31 January 2020 (UTC)
