    Social relationships and subsequent health-related behaviours: linkages between adolescent peer status and levels of adult smoking in a Stockholm cohort2012In: Addiction, ISSN 0965-2140, E-ISSN 1360-0443, Vol. 108, no 3, p. 629-637Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Aims: Peer status reflects the extent to which an individual is accepted by the group. Some studies have reported that low peer status in adolescence is associated with a higher risk of smoking, while others found the reverse. No studies have investigated peer status influences on adult smoking. The aim of the study was therefore to examine the relationship between adolescents' peer status and the intensity of smoking in adulthood.

    Design: Prospective cohort study.

    Setting: Stockholm, Sweden.

    Participants: A subsample (n = 2329) of the cohort with information about adult smoking.

    Measurements: Peer status was assessed sociometrically at age 13 and information on smoking was gathered through a questionnaire at age 32. Relative risks (RR) for self-reported level of smoking were calculated using multinomial logistic regression. Several family-related and individual variables were included as control variables.

    Findings: Lower peer status in adolescence was associated with smoking of any intensity in adulthood. For example, the risk of heavy smoking was more than threefold (RR = 3.67) among individuals in the lowest status positions. The association with occasional smoking was abolished by controlling for factors related to adolescents' attitude to school and cognitive ability. For regular and heavy smoking the relationship was attenuated by controlling for these factors.

    Conclusions: Low peer status in adolescence appears to be a risk factor for smoking in adulthood. Part of this association may be explained by adolescents' feelings towards school and cognitive ability. However, being unpopular in adolescence remains a strong risk factor for regular and heavy smoking in adulthood.

    Friendship network characteristics and psychological well-being in late adolescence: Exploring differences by gender and gender composition2014In: Scandinavian Journal of Public Health, ISSN 1403-4948, E-ISSN 1651-1905, Vol. 42, no 2, p. 146-154Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Aims: The aim of the present study was to examine the association between friendship networks and psychological well-being among 19-year-olds. Methods: The data used was a random sample of Swedish individuals born in 1990 who answered a questionnaire in 2009-2010. Friendship networks were considered in terms of three measures of emotional support. Six statements about the individual's emotional state were used to create a summary measure of psychological well-being. Gender and gender composition were included as potentially moderating factors. The association between friendship networks and psychological well-being was analysed by means of linear regression analysis (n = 1289). Results: The results indicate that males' and females' friendship networks were similar with regard to quality and trust, whereas males' networks were characterized by less self-disclosure and a stronger preference for same-gender friendships. Gender composition did not matter for the support levels. Emotional support was associated with psychological well-being but there were gender differences: females seemed to benefit more health-wise from having high-quality (and trusting) networks. Moreover, whereas self-disclosure among males was positively linked to well-being, this was not the case among females. None of these associations were moderated by gender composition. Conclusions: In sum, friendship networks are beneficial for the psychological well-being among late adolescents, but there are some important differences according to gender.

    Childhood friendships and adult health: Findings from the Aberdeen Children of the 1950s Cohort study2012In: European Journal of Public Health, ISSN 1101-1262, E-ISSN 1464-360X, Vol. 22, no 3, p. 378-383Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Social relations are known to influence morbidity and mortality but few have studied this association from a life-course perspective specifically targeting the importance of social relations in childhood for adult health. In childhood, a key aspect of children’s relationships is the number of friendships a child has in the school class, i.e. friendship quantity. The overall aim of this study was to examine the association between childhood friendships and adult self-rated health. Data from a longitudinal study of children born in Aberdeen, Scotland, between 1950 and 1956 was used. Information on friendship quantity (1964) was derived from sociometric nominations among classmates and defined as mutual choices. The health outcome was based on self-ratings derived from a questionnaire in 2001-2003. The study included various childhood and adult circumstances as possible explanatory factors. The analysis was based on ordinal logistic regression, producing odds ratios (n=5,814). The results demonstrated a gradient in women’s self-rated health according to the number of friendships in the school class. A number of circumstances in childhood and adulthood were partial explanations. For men, only those without friends reported poorer self-rated health in adulthood. This finding was explained by adult socioeconomic status. It is concluded that childhood friendships are linked to health disparities in middle age, underlining the importance of such relationships and the need for a life-course perspective on health that integrates a variety of mechanisms as they interact across life.

    Childhood social status in society and school: implications for the transition to higher levels of education2010In: British Journal of Sociology of Education, ISSN 0142-5692, E-ISSN 1465-3346, Vol. 31, no 1, p. 31-45Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    While research into educational inequalities emphasizes childhood socio-economic status, this study adds another dimension of status into the analysis; namely, the child's own social position among its peers. The aim was to examine whether socio-economic status and peer status can both be linked to educational transitions and, if so, whether they constitute overlapping paths. In a second step of analyses, the relationship between peer status and adult unemployment was investigated. Data were derived from a longitudinal study using a 1953 cohort born in Stockholm, Sweden. Our results suggest that children with higher socio-economic status and children with higher peer status are consistently more likely than their lower status peers to proceed to the next level of education, and that the effects of socio-economic status and peer status hardly overlapped at all. Furthermore, educational differences by peer status seem to involve consequences for the studied subjects' contemporary labour market opportunities. (Contains 4 tables.)

    Changes in gender equality?: Swedish fathers' parental leave, division of childcare and housework2014In: Journal of family studies, ISSN 1322-9400, Vol. 20, no 1, p. 19-27Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Sweden is well known for its family policy and this study explores whether fathers' parental leave is related to later division of childcare and housework. Two materials were used; a panel survey (2003, 2009) and an interview- study (2008). Respondents in the survey had their first child between the waves and the interview-study focused on parents of 2-3 year olds. The survey is analyzed by logistic regression and the interviews by grounded theory. The results indicate that when fathers took long leave parents shared both household tasks and childcare more equally after the leave. Higher expectations of sharing childcare is related to a higher share of divided childcare once becoming parents, although it seems that some tasks are more often shared than others. When the father took long leave both parents mention that the child relates to the father as much as the mother in everyday life.

    Vad händer om koncernbidraget är en olovlig vinstutdelning?1999Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Reglerna kring så kallade koncernbidrag finns inom skatterätten. Civilrättsligt kan vissa av dessa bidrag jämställas med en vinstutdelning. Uppsatsen behandlar vad som händer när det skatterättsliga och det civilrättsliga regelverken "kolliderar", dvs när det visar sig att koncernbidraget är en olovlig vinstutdelning enligt aktiebolagslagen.

    LifeGene-a large prospective population-based study of global relevance2011In: European Journal of Epidemiology, ISSN 0393-2990, E-ISSN 1573-7284, Vol. 26, no 1, p. 67-77Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Studying gene-environment interactions requires that the amount and quality of the lifestyle data is comparable to what is available for the corresponding genomic data. Sweden has several crucial prerequisites for comprehensive longitudinal biomedical research, such as the personal identity number, the universally available national health care system, continuously updated population and health registries and a scientifically motivated population. LifeGene builds on these strengths to bridge the gap between basic research and clinical applications with particular attention to populations, through a unique design in a research-friendly setting. LifeGene is designed both as a prospective cohort study and an infrastructure with repeated contacts of study participants approximately every 5 years. Index persons aged 18-45 years old will be recruited and invited to include their household members (partner and any children). A comprehensive questionnaire addressing cutting-edge research questions will be administered through the web with short follow-ups annually. Biosamples and physical measurements will also be collected at baseline, and re-administered every 5 years thereafter. Event-based sampling will be a key feature of LifeGene. The household-based design will give the opportunity to involve young couples prior to and during pregnancy, allowing for the first study of children born into cohort with complete pre-and perinatal data from both the mother and father. Questions and sampling schemes will be tailored to the participants' age and life events. The target of LifeGene is to enrol 500,000 Swedes and follow them longitudinally for at least 20 years.

    Round goby Neogobius melanostomus in the Baltic Sea – Invasion Biology in practice2008Doctoral thesis, comprehensive summary (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Human mediated transfer of non-indigenous species is considered to be a major threat to global biodiversity. The Ponto-Caspian round goby (Neogobius melanostomus), which has established populations in various regions in Eurasia and North-America, was first observed in Gulf of Gdańsk, Baltic Sea, in 1990. In this thesis the round goby is used as case study for assessing the invasion process of an alien species in to the Baltic Sea. Factors governing life history characteristics, traits that have enhanced the invasion, and ecological consequences for the Baltic Sea are assessed. Two diverging life history strategies of the round goby related to habitat were found: one to-wards early maturation and short population turnover time in sheltered areas, the other towards high growth rate and late maturation in exposed areas. Females produced two batches in average during the spawning season. Lengths of spawning season and annual fecundity of round gobies in Gulf of Gdańsk were in the same range as in the donor region. The species was found to compete with juvenile flounder for space and food resources, and probably also other native species are affected in coastal areas. Round goby comprised a main food source for cod and perch, forming a new energetic pathway between mussels and predatory fish. It is predicted that the species must produce more than one batch per season to sustain a viable population. Low temperature in the northern Baltic Sea is expected to hamper the devel-opment of new round goby populations, however, the global climate change might change this situation. In the southern Baltic Sea a shortage of optimal reproduction habitats is suggested to moderate the rate of spread. Although round goby in the Gulf of Gdańsk seems to have passed abundance maximum it is likely that the species will continue to be an important ecosystem component, at least in southern Baltic Sea, in the future.

    Has the invasive round goby caused new links in Baltic food webs?2010In: Environmental Biology of Fishes, ISSN 0378-1909, E-ISSN 1573-5133, Vol. 89, no 1, p. 79-93Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The Ponto-Caspian round goby (Neogobius melanostomus, Pallas 1814) most probably was established in the Gulf of GdaA""sk, Baltic Sea, in the late 1980's and has since become one of the dominant species in the region. In this study we assess the role of round gobies as prey for two important fish species in the Gulf of GdaA""sk, cod (Gadus morhua) and perch (Perca fluviatilis). We compared their present diet with stomach analyses from the area prior the round goby establishment, as well as with diet analysis from Baltic regions where round gobies are absent. There were large differences in the diet between cods from the Gulf of GdaA""sk 2003-2006 compared to cods in earlier studies (1977-1981) from the Southern Baltic Sea. There were also large differences in cod and perch diets from areas with and without round goby. Presently, round goby constitutes the most important prey for medium sized cods in Gulf of GdaA""sk, and perch from the same area almost exclusively feed on gobiids. Stomach analysis, trophic level estimates, and stable isotope analyses all indicated that cod and perch in Gulf of GdaA""sk after the round goby establishment belonged to a similar trophic level. Beside round goby, no mussel feeding fish contributed much to the diet of cod or at all to the diet of perch. Thus, it is likely that round gobies constitute a new energetic pathway from mussels to top predators. However, due to the short time elapsed after round goby establishment, we can only speculate on the species future impacts on Baltic food webs.

    Structural modeling of membrane transporter proteins2008Doctoral thesis, comprehensive summary (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    A fundamental process of all living organisms - the transport of molecules across cellular membranes through membrane transport proteins - is investigated.

    After a brief review of general properties of biological membranes follows a recollection of the major methods of membrane transport that Nature utilizes (Chapter 1). This is followed by a description of important experimental (Chapter 2) and theoretical methods (Chapter 3) for structural studies of membrane proteins. The findings on membrane protein transport in papers I-IV are then summarized (Chapter 4) and important findings are discussed. The remaining text is a discussion on relevant theoretical and experimental methods.

    Docking and homology modeling explain inhibition of the human vesicular glutamate transporters2007In: Protein Science, ISSN 0961-8368, E-ISSN 1469-896X, Vol. 16, no 9, p. 1819-1829Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    As membrane transporter proteins, VGLUT1-3 mediate the uptake of glutamate into synaptic vesicles at presynaptic nerve terminals of excitatory neural cells. This function is crucial for exocytosis and the role of glutamate as the major excitatory neurotransmitter in the central nervous system. The three transporters, sharing 76% amino acid sequence identity in humans, are highly homologous but differ in regional expression in the brain. Although little is known regarding their three- dimensional structures, hydropathy analysis on these proteins predicts 12 transmembrane segments connected by loops, a topology similar to other members in the major facilitator superfamily, where VGLUT1-3 have been phylogenetically classified. In this work, we present a three- dimensional model for the human VGLUT1 protein based on its distant bacterial homolog in the same superfamily, the glycerol- 3-phosphate transporter from Escherichia coli. This structural model, stable during molecular dynamics simulations in phospholipid bilayers solvated by water, reveals amino acid residues that face its pore and are likely to affect substrate translocation. Docking of VGLUT1 substrates to this pore localizes two different binding sites, to which inhibitors also bind with an overall trend in binding affinity that is in agreement with previously published experimental data.

    Vägen till en givande medborgardialog: En studie av framgångsfaktorer för muntlig kommunikation vid samrådsmöten2017Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Studien är en explorativ undersökning som syftar till att studera den muntliga kommunikationen vid samrådsmöten i detaljplaneprocessen idag och vilka framgångsfaktorer som finns och kan stärkas i framtiden. Syftet är också att tvärvetenskapligt undersöka länken mellan samrådsmötenas svårigheter och framgångsfaktorer med hälsoteorin känsla av sammanhang (kasam) om hur meningsfullhet, begriplighet och hanterbarhet kan användas som ledord för att överkomma svårigheter. Studien har sin utgångspunkt i två icke-deltagande observationer av samrådsmöten genomförda av Stockholm Stad och sex efterföljande djupintervjuer med de tjänstemän eller konsulter som varit med och utformat eller genomfört den muntliga kommunikationen. Resultatet visar på otillfredsställande meningsfullhet gällande formen för samrådsmötet och medborgarnas upplevelse i och med oklart syfte och mål samt olika förväntningar, vilket ledde till sammanställning av syftes- och målmodeller att användas som underlag till utformning av samrådsmöten. Studien genererade också en modell över framgångsfaktorer för muntlig kommunikation vid samrådsmöten med kasam som utgångspunkt, där också aspekter kring till viss del otillfredsställande begriplighet och hanterbarhet omfattas. Kasam-komponenterna anses av forskaren ha tydliggjort på vilka områden och på vilket sätt frustration och svårigheter uppkommer vid samrådsmöten och vilka aspekter som skulle kunna stärkas för att förebygga detta.

    Skiljer sig den ekonomiska avkastningen på utbildning beroende på klassbakgrund? Och i sådana fall hur?: En kvantitativ studie om hur individens ekonomiska avkastning beror på föräldrarnas klassbakgrund2017Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Syftet med denna studie är att undersöka om föräldrars klassbakgrund påverkar barnens ekonomiska avkastning givet att individerna har samma utbildningsnivå. Datamaterial från Levnadsundersökningen (LNU) 2010 används för att genomföra en kvantitativ analys baserad på svar från 2574 respondenter. Deltagarna delas in i tre klasser – arbetarklass, mellanliggande klass och serviceklass – enligt Erikson, Goldthorpe och Portocareros klasschema. Andra teorier, till exempel socialiseringsteorin, ger förklaringar till varför barn i högre klasser utbildar sig i större utsträckning, men besvarar inte frågan om klass påverkar den ekonomiska avkastningen på utbildning. Tidigare forskning visar på att barn med föräldrar i en högre klass tenderar att ha en större chans att nå serviceklassen än barn med föräldrar i en lägre klass. Genom regressionsanalyser med logaritmerad bruttotimlön som beroende variabel undersöks samband som är relevanta för att besvara frågeställningen. Interaktionsvariabler introduceras för att se om lön systematiskt skiljer sig mellan individer med samma utbildningsnivå men med olika klassbakgrunder. Resultatet styrker till viss del hypotesen om att barn med föräldrar som tillhör en högre klass har en högre ekonomisk avkastning på utbildning än de som har föräldrar som tillhör en lägre klass, givet att barnen har samma utbildningsnivå. Olika fenomen kan förklara detta. Det kan vara så att individer födda i serviceklassen tenderar att gå mer avancerade utbildningar och att undersökningens utbildningsklassificering är för primitiv för att nå denna slutsats. Det finns behov av mer forskning för att ge en djupare förklaring till sambandet mellan den ekonomiska avkastningen och klassbakgrund som påvisas i denna studie.

    Stockholm - The Capital of Scandinavia: Ett budskap, många avsändare2010Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Uppsatsen har som syfte att undersöka hur arbetet med varumärket Stockholm – The Capital of Scandinavia ser ut samt kartlägga och redogöra för de strategier och beslut som motiverar de drivande aktörerna Stockholm Business Region och Stockholm Visitors Boards arbete. Frågeställningarna vi har utgått ifrån är:

    •    Hur motiverar Stockholm Visitors Board och Stockholm Business Region utformandet av varumärket Stockholm – The Capital of Scandinavia?

    •    Mot vilka målgrupper riktar man varumärkeskommunikationen och skiljer sig i sådant fall kommunikationen åt mellan dessa?

    •    Mäter Stockholm Visitors Board och Stockholm Business Region effekterna av varumärkesarbetet hos de olika målgrupperna och hur går detta i sådant fall till?

    Detta arbete rör sig inom ramarna för de tre olika forskningsområdena: organisationskommunikation, branding och destinationsmarknadsföring och teorin som vi har använt oss av är kopplad till de olika områdena, som ofta överlappar varandra. Vår empiri består bland annat av de svar som framkommit av semistrukturerade kvalitativa intervjuer. Informanterna är strategiskt utvalda personer med stor inblick och medverkan i arbetet med varumärket. Utöver dessa intervjuer har vi även tagit del av material som exempelvis består av mätningsresultat, utbildningsmaterial samt organisationens verksamhetsplan och projektkatalog. Utifrån detta material har vi sammanställt information och analyserat denna utifrån frågeställningarna samt kopplat detta till relevant teori.

    Genom denna studie har vi urskiljt målgrupper, av intern respektive extern karaktär. Vi har identifierat flertalet av de målgrupper man riktar varumärkeskommunikationen mot som interna resurser och möjliga ambassadörer för varumärket. Dessa spelar därför en viktig roll i att kommunicera varumärkets budskap till externa målgrupper. Detta innebär en komplexitet då man vill kommunicera ett enhetligt budskap med många avsändare. För att kunna attrahera de olika externa målgrupperna genom ett och samma varumärke har man valt att skapa en flexibel budskapsplattform som innefattar många specifika kärnvärden. Organisationens ägarstruktur och finansiering innebär att man både har en politisk och en kommersiell marknad att ta hänsyn till och därmed krav på både legitimitet och effektivitet.

    De effektmätningar på varumärkesarbetet som har gjorts fokuserar främst på att undersöka igenkänningsnivå och attityd gentemot varumärket hos de interna målgrupperna.

    Abstract [en]

    Purpose – This paper aims to present an empirical case where fundamental changes in the environment have forced an organization to re‐evaluate its management control systems and possibly search for destabilizing supporting routines in order to unlearn the established ways of measuring and controlling within the organization. The problem, however, is that organizational technologies often work in the other direction, i.e. they promote stability in organizational routines. The paper seeks to increase understanding regarding the importance of destabilizing, or, as the authors like to call them, sensebreaking activities within organizations that are present in rapidly changing environments.

    Design/methodology/approach – The authors used multiple sources and multiple techniques to collect data; interviews with managers, participation in meetings, and document analysis such as annual reports, pamphlets, speeches and Swedish Armed Forces's (SAF's) web site.

    Findings – The study is clearly presented in a design‐oriented way. The benefits, however, are that it illustrates that the available models take for granted that the organization has a mission that is accepted. When the mission is debated, the focus and practice of management control falls into pieces. Also, when the ontology of the organization is debated, flexibility does not suffice. The proposition is that it is through sensebreaking that a reflective position may be held. That is, a position where everything may be questioned and that this questioning never stops.

    Originality/value – The study of the SAF could probably be labeled a study of an extreme case. Extreme cases facilitate theory building because the dynamics being examined tend to be more visible than they might be in other contexts. The caveat, however, is that this particular case study risks becoming anecdotal since the SAF is, per definition, one of a kind. The paper's argument, however, is that the SAF acts as an illustration of the limits (and possibilities) of management control theory and how it is framed as a technology in a milieu that is neither relatively stable nor stable, but rather under extraordinary pressure for change.
