The Modernity With a Mortality and Health Service Perspective in Karlstad 1895-1917 (English)
Abstract [en]

This case study investigates modernity and its emergence with mortality and health service measures as starting point during the period between 1895 and 1917 in Karlstad. The studies investigation material comes from source material from The Statistical Central Bureau, The Health Service Board in Karlstad, and from Karlstad Municipality ́s Technical Board. The material has through a quality, and quantity based work and production method made it possible to answer the case studies questions. To be able to understand the study ́s result from a modernity point of view, Anthony Gidden ́s modernity theory is being used. The studies results show that in Karlstad there has been a densifying development in several of the modernity ́s fields during the years that have been researched. This densifying development has lead to that the every day life of the population has in some extent changed. This period of time is also characterized as a time with an evolved sense of responsibility regarding the health service profession. During this time of modernization there was a decline of the public and the gender specific death rate in the city in the same time as tuberculosis developed into the most common cause of death for the rest of the population. However the change of this cause of death group looked somewhat different between the divided aged based groups that were examined. These results also give indications on certain individual health service measures positive affects on mortality in the city. Even here it seems that de development has been quite different between the different aged based groups that were examined. This case study ́s result both contradicts and strengthens earlier research in this area. 

Abstract [sv]

Denna fallstudie undersöker modernitetens framväxt, med dödlighet och hälsovårdsåtgärder som utgångspunkt i Karlstad under perioden 1895-1917. Studiens undersökningsmaterial utgörs av källmaterial från Statistiska Centralbyrån, Hälsovårdsnämnden i Karlstad samt från Karlstads kommuns tekniska nämnd. Materialet har genom både ett kvalitativt och kvantitativt arbets- och framställningssätt möjliggjort att besvara studiens frågeställningar. För att förstå studiens resultat utifrån ett modernitetsperspektiv nyttjas i studien Anthony Giddens modernitetsteori. Studiens resultat visar att det i Karlstad skedde en förtätning på flera av modernitetens områden under de år som undersökts. Denna förtätning bör ha bidragit till att det vardagliga livet för befolkningen i viss mån förändrades. Perioden kännetecknas även av en ökad medvetenhet och ansvarskänsla kring det hälsovårdande arbetet. Under denna tid av modernisering skedde en nedgång av det allmänna och könsspecifika dödstalet i

staden, samtidigt som olika former av tuberkulos utvecklades till den vanligaste dödsorsaken för den totala befolkningen. Dock såg förändringen av denna dödsorsaksgrupp något olika ut mellan de skilda åldersindelade grupperna som undersökts. Resultatet visar även att finns indikationer på vissa enskilda hälsovårdsåtgärders positiva inverkan på dödligheten i staden. Även här verkar utvecklingen ha skilt sig något mellan de olika åldersindelade grupperna som undersökts. Denna studies resultat både problematiserar och bekräftar tidigare gjord forskning.
