Demography[eedit | eedit soorce]

Jämtland Coonty is spairsely populatit an mair than ane third o the population live on the kintraside, makkin Jämtland Coonty the seicont lairgest rural region in Swaden, efter Gotland Coonty, though a majority o the population live in the rather densely populatit region surroondin lake Storsjön, commonly called Storsjöbygden, "the Storsjö destrict/kintraside".

Politics[eedit | eedit soorce]

The coonty is dominatit bi the Swadish Social Democratic Pairty an the Swedish Rural Centre Pairty, which is unique in Swaden, but corresponds tae the situation in the borderin Norse coonty o Nord-Trøndelag. The coonty is rather contrastive in the poleetical field. While the municipality association an a majority o the municipalities are govrened bi leeberal-conservative (Swadish: borgerlig‎, lit. "bourgeois") majorities or bi coalitions owersteppin the bloc border, the coonty cooncil is red-green an the Social Democrats receive three oot o five mandates tae the Swedish parliament.
