Abstract [en]

This master thesis is an analysis of how the amount of health centers per inhabitant has changed since the Swedish government implemented a new health care reform in 2010. The reform implies a free choice of health centers in the Swedish regions and opens up the market for private firms. The purpose of the thesis is to study the effects of the different financing systems toward the health centers in the regions. The models are based on theories of the need of health care. Two of the independent variables which are studied are income and age. The empirical results go hand in hand with the health theories about where there should be a bigger need of health care. The implementation of the new health care reform changed the effect of the independent variables marginally. The conclusion of the thesis is that there should be more studies which take the different financing systems in account and are focusing on if the health care reform is following the guide lines of the health care system of Sweden.
