The four districts making up Danderyd are: Danderyd, Djursholm, Stocksund within Stockholm urban area and Enebyberg.

Public transport

Danderyd is served by the Stockholm public transport system through SL. There are two stations on the Stockholm metro red line: Danderyds sjukhus and Mörby centrum. There are also several stops on the narrow gauge Roslagsbanan suburban railway as well as an extensive bus network including a large bus interchange at Danderyds sjukhus.

Demographics

Income and Education

The population in Danderyd Municipality is among the most affluent in the country, having the highest median income per capita.[4] One of the reasons for this is the high price on real estate, which in turn is partially due to a restrictive policy on new developments by the municipality council.

The high income of the population has enabled the municipality to maintain a relatively low rate of taxation, but a government redistribution scheme intended to transfer money from municipalities with a better than average economic situation is one factor that has forced the local government to raise the municipal income tax somewhat in the last few years.

Danderyd Municipality also has the highest share (57.0%) of highly educated persons (Statistics Sweden definition: persons with post-secondary education that is three years or longer) in the country.[5]
