Abstract [sv]

ADHD är den snabbast växande psykiatriska diagnosen bland unga i Sverige. Till många av de diagnostiserade förskrivs också läkemedel. I artikeln analyseras geografiska skillnader i förskrivning. De kommunala skillnaderna är mycket stora men skillnaderna kan bara i viss grad förklaras av variabler på kommunal nivå. Kommunernas tillhörighet till landsting tycks ha stor betydelse för nivån på förskrivning och systemfaktorer som olikartad organisering, mer eller mindre explicit policy och professionell hållning diskuteras som tänkbara förklaringar till skillnader som inte endast kan ha att göra med förekomst av fenomenet.

Abstract [en]

ADHD is the fastest growing psychiatric diagnosis among young people in Sweden. Drug treatment is common practice among those with a diagnosis. This study explores geographic differences in drug prescription. Municipal level differences in prescription rates are large and can to some extent be accounted for by factors within the municipalities. However factors on the regional level seem to be of outmost importance, also for variations between municipalities. Regional differences in prescription can hardly be explained by factors within the population only, but may also involve the way treatment is organized, differences in policy, professional approaches etc.
