Abstract [sv]

Studiens syfte är att undersöka hur stor del av de män och kvinnor som döms till fängelse som har uppmärksamhetsstörning (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, ADHD). Den skall även besvara frågan om huruvida det finns skillnader mellan könen i prevalens, samt om det finns korrelation mellan ADHD och Antisocial personlighetsstörning (ASPD). Metoden som används är självskattningsformulär som är välbeprövade inom detta område, Wender-Utah rating Scale (WURS) och Mini Neuropsykiatrisk Intervju (M.I.N.I.). Formulären besvarades av 49 fängelsedömda män och kvinnor, vilka var inskrivna på kriminalvårdsanstalter i mellansverige. Resultatet av studien visar att en hög andel av den aktuella populationen har både ADHD och ASPD. Skillnaderna mellan könen är statistiskt inte signifikanta, men rent procentuellt ligger kvinnor högre i prevalens av ADHD än männen. Resultatet är dock svårtolkat då det var för få manliga deltagare, och bör därmed tolkas försiktigt.

Abstract [en]

The aim of this study is to investigate how many of the men and women sentenced to prison that suffer from Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD). It also aims to answer the question of however there is a difference between sexes according to prevalence, and the correlation between ADHD and antisocial personality disorder (ASPD). The method used is self-report questionnaires which are well tested for this purpose, Wender-Utah Rating Scale (WURS) and Mini Neuropsychiatric Interview (M.I.N.I). The questionnaires were answered by 49 male and female prison inmates, who were residing in prisons in mid-Sweden. The results of the study show that a high number of the population suffers from both ADHD and ASPD. The differences in sexes were not statistically significant, but based on numbers the females are higher in prevalence than the males in ADHD. Since there were few males in this study, the results, however, need to be interpreted with caution.
