  1. 1. Health and Healthcare Utilization Among Swedish Single Parent Families

    Author : Marcus Westin; Ragnar Westerling; Claes Sundelin; Bo Burström; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : Social medicine; inequity; single parent; children; health; health care utilization; social capital; Socialmedicin;

    Abstract : One of the most vulnerable groups in Swedish society today is single parent families, a group that has increased over the last thirty years in proportion to married and cohabiting parents. The aims of this thesis are to study inequality and inequity in health and health care utilization with regard to whether parents are single or couple (married/cohabiting), to investigate whether the concept of social capital may provide us with further understanding when analyzing inequality and inequity in health and to investigate how the mental health of single parent children may differ from couple parent children and to what extent this difference may be due to parental socio-economic and socio-demographic characteristics, including social capital.

    Abstract : The general aims of this dissertation are to analyse how family situation, and especially lone parenting, influence health and life chances in Sweden and the extent to which possible relations are influenced by socioeconomic circumstances and health selection. In two population-based cohort studies we analysed overall and cause-specific mortality (1991-95), and also severe morbidity (1991-94) from different causes among lone mothers in comparison with mothers with partners.

    Keywords : Single mothers; family homelessness; poverty; welfare state; Sweden; Health and society; Hälsa och samhälle;

    Abstract : Within the confines of the receding Swedish welfare state, family homelessness and poverty are on the rise among one-parent families, in particular those headed by a single migrant mother. This development follows a trend that is noticeable across advanced welfare states, where female-headed households are facing an increased risk of being locked into vicious circles of low-paid work, inadequate income protection schemes and poor housing options.
