    Keywords : SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; road pricing; transport investment; cost-benefit analysis; tax distortions; transport policies; welfare effects; political economy; acceptability; SRA - Transport; SRA - Transport;

    Abstract : This thesis contains five papers studying the economic efficiency and political acceptability of road pricing policies and transport investments in distorted economies. Interactions between the transport market and other distorted markets, such as the labor market, can have a large impact on the welfare effect of a road pricing policy or a transport investment.

  2. 2. Osteoarthritis. Epidemiologic and genetic aspects

    University dissertation from Lund University

    Author : Jonas Franklin; [2010]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; body mass index; knee; hip; epidemiology; Osteoarthritis; occupation; hip fracture; inheritance; natural history;

    Abstract : The purpose of this study was to (I) assess the association between body mass index (BMI) and total hip replacement (THR) and total knee replacement (TKR) due to osteoarthritis (OA), (II) assess the association between the mechanical load of work and THR and TKR due to OA, (III) evaluate the natural history of radiographic hip OA with regards to THR and hip fracture, (IV) to determine the prevalence of radiographic OA in patients with hip fracture, and (V) to examine and compare the inheritance patterns of THR for OA and hip fracture. OA was previously regarded as a consequence of the wear and tear the joint is subjected to during one’s lifetime. READ MORE

    Abstract : Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) appears to affect up to 5% of the population. The extent to what pulmonary function awake and during sleep relates to obstructive breathing and hypoxemia during sleep in these patients is unclear. READ MORE

  4. 4. Energy Efficient Vehicle Policy: Lessons Learnt An analysis of the effects of incentive policies on the demand, usage and pricing of energy efficient vehicles

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Kungliga Tekniska högskolan

    Author : Jake Whitehead; Joel Franklin; Simon Washington; Anders Karlström; Jonas Eliasson; Bert van Wee; [2016]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Energy Efficient Vehicle; Incentives; Policy; Demand; Usage; Pricing; Transportvetenskap; Transport Science;

    Abstract : Encouraging the uptake of energy efficient vehicles (EEVs) is an aspiration of critical importance in a day and age in which we are confronted with the increasingly dire consequences of human behaviour on our planet, and on the planet for generations to come. The transport sector is one of the highest contributors of anthropogenic greenhouse gas emissions, whilst pollution from this sector is responsible for a large proportion of human deaths each and every year.
