    Abstract [sv]

    I början av 1900-talet betraktades Norrland som ett framtidsland med en rikedom av naturresurser som kunde exploateras (Sörlin 1988). Bebyggelsen bredde ut sig och befolkningsökningen var kraftig. Byar och tätorter grundlades. Satsningar gjordes på uppbyggnad av service och transportinfrastruktur. Denna positiva bild har dock förmörkats under de senaste femtio åren på grund av en svagare sysselsättnings- och befolkningsutveckling än i övriga delar av Sverige. Endast enstaka städer och orter har fortsatt att växa (jämför kapitel 1 och 10 i denna volym – Lidström 2012, Wiberg & Lind 2012). I många kommuner har befolkningsminskningen varit omfattande trots att det redan på 1960-talet påbörjades regionalpolitiska satsningar på strukturomvandling inom näringslivet samt utbyggnad av den offentliga servicen på liknande sätt som i riket i övrigt. Finns det någon chans till trendbrott? Vilka inslag i samhällsstrukturen anser dagens norrlänningar vara viktigast och hur tror de att det lokala samhällslivet kommer att utvecklas? Hur tycker de att naturresurserna ska nyttjas? En del av svaren på dessa frågor kan jämföras med resultaten från den tidigare regionstudien (Wiberg 2009).

    Vad  händer med Norrland - till 2025?2008In: Ska hela Sverige leva?, Stockholm: Forskningsrådet FORMAS , 2008, p. 83-92Chapter in book (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Norrland är glesbefolkat och har sina brister, men skillnaderna är stora mellan olika delar. Utsikterna för stadsregionerna i kustområdet är betydligt ljusare än för inlandskommunerna. Gapet kommer att växa mellan tillväxtöar och stora områden med fortsatt tillbakagång. Inlandets naturresurser kan användas mer än idag, men det räcker inte för att vända befolkningsutvecklingen mer än på några få ställen, skriver Ulf Wiberg.

    Mind maps of employment development in Swedish sparse regions2011In: Fennia, ISSN 0015-0010, Vol. 189, no 11, p. 32-42Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Employment options are forming an essential part of living conditions for individuals and households. In this paper we present how people in Sweden perceive current and future job options. The empirical case is the northern half of the Swedish territory, which is divided into four counties. The analysis is based on data from a questionnaire which was distributed to 4 000 inhabitants aged 15-85 years during October 2008 - January 2009. The ANOTA method is used as analytical instrument. Two categories of determinants behind attitudes to job options in general at the local labor market have been chosen. The first category includes a set of personal attributes, while the second category includes a set of locational characteristics. Further is analyzed how the respondents perceived the specific role of manufacturing industry, service industry and R&D for the development in their county. Also in this part the two categories of determinants are used. The analysis reveals a rather widely spread anxiety about both current and future provision of job options. The most satisfied and optimistic respondents were young, male and high income earners living in coastal municipal with a low unemployment level. There were also some striking differences in views among sub groups on the role of manufacturing industry, service industry and R&D. The biggest contrasts were between manufacturing industry and R&D. The highest share of respondents who regarded manufacturing industry as very important was found among men, over 30 years, with a low education and living in municipalities with a high unemployment level. The highest share of respondents who regarded R&D as very important was found among women, younger than 30 years, highly educated and living in coastal municipalities with a low unemployment level.

    Guided tourism: the role of guidebooks in German tourist behaviour in Sweden2007Doctoral thesis, comprehensive summary (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Tourism is a spatial phenomenon. Tourist behaviour on-site is not only dependent on the destination itself, but also on the situation in other places, tourists’ spatial mobility and access to information. On the basis of this argument, the whole tourism system is taken into account in this thesis. The aim is to analyse the interplay between mobility, tourist behaviour and guidebooks. The focus lies on German tourists in Sweden. Due to the importance of guidebooks to this visitor group, the thesis concentrates particularly on guidebooks as source of information.

    In the first article, power relations that steer the selection of Swedish tourist sites in German guidebooks are analysed. The results show that the selection of tourist sites is dependent on personal, editorial, geographical, economic and tourism-sociological factors. The production of information is dependent on a complex web of power relations, the core of which is constituted by authors, publishers and readers.

    In the second article, the content in German guidebooks on Sweden is analysed. Besides Stockholm and Northern Lapland, the regions presented most frequently are usually located in the south of the country. It is found that guidebooks influence German tourists’ choices of tourist sites in Sweden, and that this influence increases with the distance from Germany. The study also shows that guidebooks contribute to constructing tourism space and providing places with meaning.

    In the third article, it is shown that information and time availability influence tourist mobility. The existence of an individual travel rhythm is confirmed, which is defined as a travel pattern that is independent of the tourist sites that are visited. It includes, among other things, long travel distances the first and last days of the holiday, a short first stay-over, the longest stay in the region with the greatest distance from home, and a relation between the length of stay at one place and the distance covered when departing.

    In the last article, tourist behaviour is analysed. The results dispel the predominant impression in current tourism discourse that states that tourists are continually active during their holidays. It is found that the major difference between home and tourist behaviour is not constituted by the activities themselves, but by a difference in place, followed by a slower pace in which activities are performed and a limited time period. Spatial mobility, the characteristics of place and access to information all influence tourist behaviour on-site.

    In conclusion, it is found that tourist information, mobility and behaviour on the spot are closely connected. Tourists consume the tourism space created in guidebooks, and recreate this space when travelling, as they choose individually how to respond to the information provided. Actors, places and tourist structures all exist in relation to each other. For the resulting behaviour in place, this means that it is not only the supply at the destination that is important, but also the situation in tourists’ home regions and along their travel routes.

    Abstract [en]

    Tourism is often studied as if it was static. Yet, mobility constitutes an important part of the tourism system. The paper argues that tourists are travelling according to an individual travel rhythm, which can be defined as a travel pattern that tourists relate to, independent from the tourist sites that are visited. It was found out that there are long travel distances on the first and last day of the holiday, that mobility and stationariness are concentrated in time and that tourists along a round tour often spend the longest time in the region with the longest distance to the home region. The paper concludes that a travel rhythm exists, and that it is only partly influenced by the time the tourist spends at the destination, and the previous number of visits. Time geography was applied as underlying theory, and its use can be encouraged in forthcoming tourism studies.
