The number of Swedish full-time agricultural holdings (requiring at least 1 600 standardized work hours) amounted to 16 296 in 2013, a reduction by 4 % since 2010 and by 20 % since 2005. The share of full-time holdings out of all agricultural holdings decreased from 28 % in 2005 to 24 % in 2010 and 2013.

In 2013, just over two-thirds of the Swedish farmland was utilized by less than a quarter of the agricultural holdings being full-time operations. This means that the average agricultural area utilized by full-time holdings was more than 7 times larger than the area utilized by other agricultural holdings (130 vs. 18 hectares).

The average area of arable land utilized by full-time holdings increased from 91 to 112 hectares between 2005 and 2013, while the proportion of large full-time holdings (operations utilizing more than 100 hectares of arable land) increased from 29 % of the full-time holdings to 39 %.

The shares of full-time holdings owning their utilized land as opposed to leasing part or all of the land remained constant throughout the period 2005–2013. In that last year, holdings leasing all of their land utilized on average 26 % larger areas than holdings leasing part of their land. The latter holdings, in turn, utilized 28 % larger areas than holding owning all their land.

Just shy of 60 000 persons were occupied in the full-time agricultural holdings during 2013, corresponding to 35 % of all occupied people in the entirety of Swedish farming; a decrese from 40 % in 2005.

The most common orientation of farming among the full-time holdings remained animal husbandry throughout the entire period 2005–2013, although the share of holdings tending livestock decreased by 24 % between 2005 and 2013. The decrease in animal husbandry holdings was primarily due to a 46 % decrease in the number of holdings tending dairy cattle.

Despite the decrease in number of full-time holdings at large, the number of full-time holdings with other gainful activities increased throughout the period 2005–2013, reaching a share of 51 % of all full-time holdings in 2013.
