Abstract [en]

Even thou the decline of child mortality in Sweden was a major factor during the demographic transition and that it caused a higher competition of resources in the society. There has been none research of the socioeconomic differences in child mortality in Umeå and Skellefteå in Sweden 1880–1950. This period was also characterized by processes such as the induztrialisation, urbanization and the development of the Swedish welfare state. Which should make it an even more interesting time to study socioeconomic differences in child mortality. The objective in this study was to examine socioeconomic differences in child mortality dependent of the father or mothers socioeconomic position in the society. The methods used was Kaplan-Meier survival analysis to investigate the chance of 179 406 children to survive until five years of age dependent of their fathers and mothers socioeconomic position in Umeå and Skellefteå in Sweden 1880–1950. The analysis show that the socioeconomic position of the parents had a statistical significance for the childrens survival during 1920 to 1950 in Umeå Skellefteå. The fathers socioeconomic position did also have statistical significance for the childrens survival during 1900–1920. However there was no statistical significance to be found for the mothers during the same period 1900–1920. There were also no statistical significance to be found between the parents socioeconomic position and childrens survival during1880–1900. The conclusions drawn is that more research can be done by using Cox regressions to analyze the differences in impact of the fathers and mothers socioeconomic position on the childrens survival. But also to analyze the impact of illegitimacy, legitimacy and intervals on the childrens survival during this period.
