Abstract [en]

A main trend of demographic change – urbanisation – has a quiet companion called counter-urbanisation which is designated to the migration of groups and individuals from urban to rural areas. Counter-urbanisation is valuable for the rural culture in decline as well as for contributing to solving the arising challenges of urban areas. However, the rural area of Sweden is large and finding a place to settle might be hard. Both migrants and authorities promoting this migration may have an interest in the mapping of preferable habitats in rural areas from a counter-urbanisation perspective. Therefore, this report investigates the possibilities of procuring a method for said rural mapping. Contemporary Swedish research is consulted for specific counter-urban migrants’ choices of where to migrate. The preferred places found in the study are analysed with the geographic information system software ArcGIS. Results show a method for mapping rural areas preferred by a hypothetical statistically compiled individual can be procured.

Abstract [sv]

I skuggan av urbaniseringen pågår den trend vilken benämnts kontraurbanisering som betecknar migrationen av grupper och individer från tätort till glesbygd. Kontraurbaniseringen är välbehövlig för att bibehålla levande landsbygd och mildra tätortsproblematik. Men glesbygden är stor till ytan och potentiella platser att migrera till kan vara svåra att hitta, om de alls existerar. Både migrerande individer och grupper och samhällsansvariga organisationer kan därför ha nytta av en kartlagd glesbygd i kontraurbaniseringens perspektiv. Den här rapporten frågar sig därför om det går att utforma en metod för sådan kartläggning. Detaljerna ur kontraurbaniseringens perspektiv eftersöks i samtida svensk forskning på kontraurbanisering. De för kontraurbana migranter föredragna platser funna i undersökningen bearbetas genom rasteranalys i GIS-programmet ArcGIS. Resultaten visar att en metod kan utvecklas för kartläggning av föredragna platser av en statistiskt sannolik hypotetisk kontraurban migrant.
