    Livsfas eller generation?: ungas attityder till välfärdsstatliga utgifter2004In: Sociologisk forskning, ISSN 0038-0342, E-ISSN 2002-066X, no 3, p. 55-73Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Young people’s attitudes towards the Swedish welfare state’s expenditures are scrutinized in this study. Data from Statistic’s Sweden Survey of Living Conditions was used and a total of 5.732 respondents aged 19 to 65, out of which 1.106 were aged 19-30 years old, answered questions regarding what expenditures they considered should increase or decrease.

    The results show that there is self-interest in attitudes to the distribution of expenditures and substantial age-differences. Young people were more positive concerning expenditures towards the support argued important for establishment. Actual monetary transfer was not distinguishing between ages, therefore the situation of real or potential risk-exposure characteristic for youth was argued what was explaining the age-difference in attitudes.

    The results support the life-phase effect rather than the generation effect – individualization’s achievement orientation – in the distribution of attitudes towards the Swedish welfare state’s expenditures.

    A Unique Source for Innovative Longitudinal Research: the POPLINK Database2016In: Historical Life Course Studies, E-ISSN 2352-6343, Vol. 3, p. 20-31Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper presents the longitudinal database POPLINK, which has been developed at the Demographic Data Base at Umeå University, Sweden. Based on digitized Swedish population registers between c. 1700-1950, the database contains micro-data that covers the agrarian society through industrialization and further on to the Swedish welfare state and contemporary society. It is now possible to study the profound processes of the second demographic transition using individual level data with a proper size population. POPLINK allows for a large array of longitudinal studies, such as social mobility, migration, fertility, mortality, civil status, kinship relations, diseases, disability and causes of death. International standards of occupations (HISCO) and diseases (ICD-10) have been applied, facilitating comparability. POPLINK covers two large regions in Northern Sweden and is built on complete registrations. It is one of the world’s most information-dense historical population databases, covering up to 15 generations and 350,000 individuals described by 300 variables, allowing the ability to monitor populations over time. POPLINK has been built to allow linkage to modern registries, clinical data and medical biobanks, which enables the study of transgenerational effects, heredity and genetic transfers in disease incidence of the population today. DDB serves as an infrastructure for research and is open to researchers of any nationality.
