Abstract [en]

The overall aim of this study is to understand how average daily individuals’ accessibility to other individuals has changed in Sweden and what the impact of changes in intra-travel time is on changes in daily individuals’ accessibility in Dalarna County.

This thesis was conducted by applying quantitative research method via secondary data collection method. The required data for the purpose of this study were collected from Official Statistic of Sweden (SCB), Swedish Road Administration (NVDB) and Swedish National Travel Survey (RVU). Research population or target population for this study is all Swedish workforce population, aged 20-64. For the first part of the aim, the entire research population has been investigated and for the second part of the aim, non-probability sampling method (purposive sampling method) has been applied. The datasets have been applied to compute different variables. The variables were computed by using formulas extracted from previous empirical studies and with help of GIS and R software. The relationship between response and predictors variables has been statistically analyzed by multiple linear regression.

The findings indicate that average daily individuals’ accessibility increased within the Swedish context between the years 1990 and 2008. It was found that the most increment was related to years 1995 to 2000. Also the statistical analysis showed that the relationship between the changes in average intra-travel time and changes in average daily individuals’ accessibility was not significant in municipalities in Dalarna County. Meanwhile, it was concluded that among predictor variables, changes in average daily mobility had a significant relationship with the changes in average daily individuals’ accessibility to other individuals within municipalities in Dalarna County.
