As I understand it, the goal of the project is to digitize the entire 1890
census for the use of educational institutions. Umeå university, which is
in northern Sweden, has put some of the northen census data on the
Internet. I believe that they will put more of the northern census data on
their web site as it becomes available. Their web pages don't say anything
about putting data from other parts of Sweden on their web site. My guess
is that they won't. Institutions in other parts of the country could put
the data from their regions on the Internet, but the priority is to make
the data available to schools rather than to genealogists.
There is a little more about the project on the Arkion page at:

Thanks to Jim for the following useful information.
Do you know if this is a project that will in the end include all of Sweden?

Jim said: ''Those of you with ancestors in northen Sweden in 1890 may want
to check out the online 1890 census. It shows people's birth place and
year, and where
they lived in 1890. It currently includes all of Västerbotten län and
parts of Norrbotten län and Jämtland län.''
