Forerunners and Laggards in Sweden’s Family Change. Fathers’ uptake of parental leave, 1993-2010

Li Ma, Gunnar Andersson, Ann-Zofie Duvander & Marie Evertsson
Sweden is often considered a forerunner in family change and developments towards less gendered patterns of family production. In this study, we focus on recent developments towards more gender equal sharing of parental leave in Sweden. This country was the first in the world to introduce a gender-neutral parental leave scheme. The aim was to promote the combination of work and family, mainly by enabling women’s participation in the labor force. With time, the focus...

Surveillance of Sulfur Emissions from Ships in Danish Waters

Johan Mellqvist, Jörg Beecken, Vladimir Conde & Johan Ekholm
In 2015 new rules from the IMO and legislation from EU (Sulfur directive) requires ships to run with maximum fuel sulfur content (FSC) of 0.1 % m/m in northern European waters. In order to promote a level playing field within the shipping sector, there is a need for measurement systems that can make effective compliance control. This report describes the results from ship emission measurements on the waters surrounding Denmark from June 2015 to July...

Who Does It and Where? Economic integration of refugees in France and Sweden

Elena Ambrosetti, Andrea Fuentes Monti & Eleonora Mussino
Abstract: This paper assesses migrant economic integration in Sweden and France using two national-level surveys specifically aimed at studying the living conditions of migrants. The “Trajectoire et Origines” survey of 2008-2009 collects information on immigrants and their descendants in France. The 2010 “Level of Living Survey for Foreign Born Persons and their Children” includes information on resident immigrants in Sweden. Through a set of logistic regression analysis based on these two datasets, we investigate the...

Changing Seasonal Variation in Births by Sociodemographic Factors: A Population-Based Register Study

Johan Dahlberg & Gunnar Andersson
Abstract: Seasonality of births is in some populations strongly influenced by sociodemographic factors. In this study, we analyse the impact of mothers’ sociodemographic characteristics for the seasonal variation in 7,710,955 live births in Sweden between 1940 and 2012. During 1940-1999, Swedish birth rates showed the typical seasonal variation with high numbers of births during the spring, and low numbers of births during the last quarter of the year. However, during the twenty-first century, the seasonal...

Fertility intentions among the children of immigrants in Sweden. Are there differences according to generational status, parental origin, and gender?

Erik Carlsson
Abstract: Even though fertility preferences among immigrant descendants provide information about their level of ideological adaptation to destination country patterns, there is so far only little research on the topic. In analyzing the short-term fertility intentions among children of immigrants in Sweden, this study contributes new insights both by extending the focus from behavior to preferences and by distinguishing among children of immigrants according to (1) generational status, (2) parental origin, and (3) gender. With...

Behavioral addictions - A social science perspective

Karin Helmersson Bergmark
This conceptual review and analysis discusses the development of the addiction concept, a development that entails a marked expansion of what is considered to constitute an addiction.

During the last decade, following the introduction of DSM-5 (the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, APA 2013) and the opening up of new terrains, many bad habits and behavioral problems are in the process of being transferred to and renamed as addictions, endorsing a continued or...

Are wives and daughters disadvantaged in polygynous households? A case study of the Arsi Oromo of Ethiopia

Caroline Uggla, Eshetu Gurmu & Mhairi Gibson
Final version published 2017 in Evolution and Human Behavior.


Abstract: Whether polygyny is harmful for women and their children is a long-standing question in anthropology. Few studies, however, have explored whether the effect of polygyny varies for women of different wife order, and whether there are different outcomes for their sons and daughters. Because males have higher reproductive variance, especially when they are allowed to take multiple wives, parents may have higher fitness returns from...

Birth and Employment Transitions of Women in Turkey: Conflicting or Compatible Roles?

Ayse Abbasoglu Ozgoren, Banu Ergöçmen & Aysıt Tansel
Abstract: The relationship between fertility and employment among women is a challenging topic that requires further exploration, especially for developing countries where the micro and macro evidence fails to paint a clear picture. This study analyzes the two-way relationship between women’s employment and fertility in Turkey using a hazard approach with piece-wise constant exponential modelling, using data from the 2008 Turkey Demographic and Health Survey. To the best of the authors’ knowledge, this is the...

Cognitive ability and fertility amongst Swedish men. Evidence from 18 cohorts of military conscription

Martin Kolk & Kieron Barclay
Abstract: We examine the relationship between cognitive ability and childbearing patterns in contemporary Sweden using administrative register data. The topic has a long history in the social sciences and has been the topic of a large number of studies, many arguing for a negative gradient between intelligence and fertility. We link fertility histories to military conscription tests with intelligences scores for all Swedish born men born 1951 to 1967. We find an overall positive relationship...

Are wives and daughters disadvantaged in polygynous households? A case study of the Arsi Oromo of Ethiopia

Caroline Uggla, Eshetu Gurmu & Mhairi Gibson
Abstract: Whether polygyny is harmful for women and their children is a long-standing question in anthropology. Few studies, however, have explored whether the effect of polygyny varies for women of different wife order, and whether there are different outcomes for their sons and daughters. Because males have higher reproductive variance, especially when they are allowed to take multiple wives, parents may have higher fitness returns from investing in sons over daughters in polygynous households. Moreover,...

Parental Survival and Retirement Timing in the Swedish Population

Linda Kridahl & Merril Silverstein
Abstract: Workforces are aging in most developed countries. At the same time, the parents of workers nearing retirement age are more likely to still be alive and in need of care. This study investigated the association between the survival of parents and retirement timing in Sweden. Data was derived from Swedish population registers for men and women born in 1940-1945. Discrete-time survival analysis using complementary log-log functions was employed. The study finds evidence that parental...

Policy support and impact on third births in post-socialist Hungary

Zsolt Spéder, Lívia Murinkó & Livia Olah
Abstract: Since the early 1990s fertility fall steeply in Central-East European countries including Hungary where substantial governmental efforts sought to stop or at least reduce the decline. Specific policy measures have benefited parents with three or more children: i) the flat-rate child-raising support paid from the 3rd until the 8th birthday of the youngest child in large families (signalling recognition of ‘motherhood as profession’) and ii) a comprehensive tax-relief system. The success of these measures,...

Militant attitudes among Swedish employees: The role of class and social identification

Johanna Palm
Using a mixed-methods approach, including data from a national sample of 1851 employees and 10 in-depth interviews with various categories of employees, this paper examines what factors influence different atti-tudes towards industrial action among Swedish employees. It adds to previous research by showing that social class has a strong influence on attitudes, both in terms of its effects on wages and working conditions and in terms of how class identification and class background affects perceptions...

Health and criminal conviction among African Americans - A sibling study

Amber Beckley, Rohan.Palmer@Emory.Edu, Mrocque@Bates.Edu & Keith.Whitfield@Wayne.Edu
Abstract: We examined the association between crime and poor health in a sample of African American twins. We combined health data from the Carolina African American Twin Study of Aging with criminal conviction data from North Carolina’s Department of Public Safety. We analyzed both convicted Study members matched with non-convicted study members and siblings discordant for criminal conviction. Study members with a criminal conviction, compared to those without a criminal conviction, had poorer adult health...

“Does Marriage Matter?” Revisited: The stability, fertility and mortality of the Swedish 1989 Marriage Boom cohort

Jennifer Holland, B.G.Perelli-Harris@Soton.Ac.Uk & Gunnar Andersson
A common finding across studies of the association between family context and wellbeing is a positive correlation between marriage and a host of outcomes related to union quality and stability, mental and physical health, job prospects and economic wellbeing for spouses and their children. The magnitude of the marriage premium and whether it is purely driven by selection remains elusive. We situate our study in Sweden, a context where the legal and social value of...

Self-Selection into Circular Migration: Evidence from linked Finnish and Swedish Register Data

Rosa.Weber@Sociology.Su.Se & Jan Saarela
Circular migration in a setting of free mobility has received increasing attention among policy makers. However, to date we know relatively little about the mechanisms underlying circular migration. In this paper, we try to fill the gap in the literature by analysing circular migration between Finland and Sweden using unique linked register data. The data set covers the years 1987-2005 and provides information on individuals in Finland and Sweden, thus allowing us to follow migrants...
