When it comes to dyslexia, it's more difficult to give any numbre of people, since the reading and writing ability is so hard to measure, but according to "Svenska dyslexiföreningen" (The Swedish Dyslexia Association) it's about 5-8 percent of the swedish people who have significant difficulties to read and write.
