Abstract [en]

Aim: The aim was to investigate and describe, how students on high school level in Kronoberg county self rated their health with relation to irritation, nervousness/anxiety insomnia and gender. An additional aim was to investigate if there are differences between students born in Sweden by Swedish parents, students born in Sweden by foreign-born parents and foreign-born students.

 

Methods: A quantitative method was used to analyse data gathered from students (n=1936) on high school level in 2006. All statistical analyses were made with help of SPSS V-12.

 

Finding: The findings showed that most of the students self rated their health as “good”, however migrant students self rated their health as “not so good” and they had more problems with insomnia.

 

The overall findings showed gender differences. Particularly, foreign-born girls self rated their health as “not so good” and reported more problems with insomnia.

 

There was no divergence between the groups regarding irritation, nervousness/anxiety.

 

Conclusion: School nurses and health workers must have deep knowledge about differences in gender, self- rated health and insomnia when they work with public health. More studies are needed to further investigate why the migrant students, particularly the girls health was worse and why they had more insomnia than the other groups.
