    Äldre bilförare i simulator: en valideringsstudie2000Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Syftet med denna studie var att granska simulatorns validitet för studier av körbeteende hos äldre (65+) bilförare. Äldre bilförare är det snabbast växande segmentet i förarpopulationen. I förhållande till fältstudier är en körsimulator fördelaktig så tillvida att den verkliga trafikens olycksrisk undviks och att beteendet i situationer som skulle innebära en oacceptabel risk i en fältstudie kan observeras och mätas. Dessutom har man har fullständig kontroll över den experimentella situationen. Nackdelen är att även de bästa simulatorerna inte kan producera en helt övertygande illusion av verklig bilkörning, vilket rimligen påverkar körbeteendet. I studien jämfördes hur äldre försökspersoner körde samma rutt med en instrumenterad bil i verklig trafik och med VTI:s simulator. Dessutom samlades intervju- och testdata. Resultaten visar att försökspersonerna körde i stort sätt på samma sätt i simulatorn som i den instrumenterade bilen. De viktigaste skillnaderna mellan simulator och mätbil var följande: 1. Medelhastigheten var lägre i simulatorn på 70-sträckor. 2. Försökspersonerna körde längre åt höger på vägbanan i simulatorn. 3. Variationen i hastighet, sidoläge och rattutslag var större i simulatorn. 4. Försökspersonerna bromsade betydligt oftare och hårdare i simulatorn. 5. Inlärningseffekter, såsom ökad hastighet och mindre variation i hastighet och sidoläge, uppträdde i betydligt större grad i simulatorn.

    Att köra eller inte köra: Hur de äldre, åldrande och bilkörning har diskuterats i svensk transportpolitik2008Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The objective of this study is to analyse the formation of older and ageing drivers in Swedish transportation policy. Documents from the Swedish Government, the Riksdag and, in a few cases, public authorities and newspapers are analysed. The discourse-analytical framework is inspired by Foucault’s archaeology, which is used as a tool box.

    The study identifies/constructs three periods in the formation of older and ageing drivers. In the first period (1934–1967) there is a discursive gap between statements about driver selection and traffic safety. Driving in ‘old age’ is a problem for medical expertise and mandatory tests are proposed. The proposals are rejected, as older people’s driving is not a problem in the discourse of traffic safety.

    In the second period (1967–1991) ‘older drivers’ is made up as a category of interest. ‘Older drivers’ become an accident population in the discourse of traffic safety due to changes in statistical practices. In the third period (1991–2006) a discourse of older peo-ple’s mobility is appearing alongside the discourses of traffic safety and driver selection.

    Moreover, the study traces how the statements of older and ageing drivers are ordered by more general ideas of the aged and ageing. Double discourses of ageing are followed by a dichotomisation in ‘healthy’ and ‘sick older drivers’ in the 1990s. The idea of an abrupt exit in old age alters to a more gradual exit, in its turn followed by challenging the very idea of exit.

    Mobile Lives in a Neighbourhood: Physical Mobility, Life Stories and Ageing2016Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    ‘Ageing in place’ is a notion which captures the importance of ageing in familiarsurroundings for older people. Place is often conceptualized as the local environment,e.g. the neighbourhood of living. However, in the modern mobile world,older people are highly mobile, virtually as well as physically. This means thatthe notion of place also has to include mobility and ‘ageing in place’ may have totranscend local boundaries. The aim of this paper is to discuss ‘ageing in place’based on narratives of physical mobility, i.e. everyday mobility/transportation andresidential mobility, among older people living in the same neighbourhood.18 interviewees 65 years and older were asked to retell their lived mobility.All interviewees lived in the same neighbourhood, Ljura in Norrköping, Sweden.In this way all stories converged in time and space, in Ljura, at the time of the interviews.Some interviewees had grown up in Norrköping while others originatedfrom the very north and south of Sweden, as well as from abroad. The experiencesof and ties to Ljura differed clearly based on when the interviewees movedto Ljura as well as previous experiences of mobility in life. While living in Ljura,routinized everyday mobility was connecting the neighbourhood to other importantplaces for the informants, e.g. a nearby forest, the city centre, allotments andplaces from the childhood. Multilocal living was also important where living inthe neighbourhood was, depending on season, shared with living in the summercottage or traveling for longer periods in a camper.The life stories of mobility among older people living in the same neighbourhoodillustrate heterogeneous ways of relating to the neighbourhood as well asthe importance of mobility to link places of significance to each other. The paperdiscusses conceptualisations of ‘ageing-in-place’ in relation to these results

    'Seniors are disabled or like everybody else': Dilemmas for policy makers when dealing with life course transitions and heterogeneity in applied fields such as transportation2014Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The point of departure for this article is the results from a case study of Sweden on national actors and policies dealing with senior obility published in a EU report 2013. The results showed that senior road users were a neglected category on national policy level espite concerns of the ageing of society. In this article the case study was further analysed in a theoretical framework of categorisation n order to get in-depth knowledge on how older road users were discussed and categorised. The main empirical data was interviews, documents and web pages, all focusing on national level. There was ambivalence among important national transportation actors in how to deal with the category of older road user. Officials at Swedish Transport Administration claimed e.g. older road users to be a nonrelevant category since issues of importance for this category were brought up in relation to categories such as disability and vulnerable road users. Otherwise older road users were like "everybody else". There was a backlash where heterogeneity was explicitly used as an argument for not focusing explicitly on older people. It appeared to be based on an understanding of heterogeneity as diversity of characteristics (except chronological age) while not recognizing how individuals with different characteristics still may pass common life course transitions related to the life course. The tendency to view categories in this context as constructed on specific static characteristics (e.g. chronological age, disability features) thus largely dismissed the temporal dimension in ageing and life course transitions and processes. The consequence was, among others, a problematic one-dimensional understanding of heterogeneity. The article argues that what has often been viewed as an advance, in gerontology and later spread to other fields, namely putting forward heterogeneity in order to challenge homogenous views of old age, should be accompanied also with a more thorough view on heterogeneity in relation to age.

    Åtgärder för äldre bilförare: effekter på trafiksäkerhet och mobilitet2010Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The report describes and evaluates traffic safety measures for older drivers in Norway. Firstly, a literature review with a focus on current resarch since the year 2000 gives an overall picture of existing measures. Secondly, a review of existing and possible self-evaluation tests is made. Thirdly, the literature review and the review of self-evalution tests forms the basis for evaluating the effects of measures on traffic safety, mobility, safe mobility and viability. Seven measures of action which could be implemented in Norway are presented. - The current Norwegian driving licence policy of mandatory medical certificates for car drivers 70 years old and older should be evaluated. - The current Norwegian policy with restricted driving licences should be evaluated. - Education and training for older drivers should continue and develop to increase the effects on safe mobility. - Self-evaluation tests should be implemented step-by-step and their use should be evaluated. - Dissemination of checklists and advice to older drivers to facilitate choosing a car beneficial to safe mobility should be stimulated. - A separate signal phase for left turning vehicles in intersections regulated by traffic lights, possibly complemented by a separate lane should when possible be introduced. - Complex intersections without traffic lights should when possible be turned into roundabouts.

    Äldres resvanor: äldre trafikanter som heterogen grupp och framtida forskningsbehov2013Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Syftet med detta notat är att ge en översikt av viktiga forskningsresultat om äldres resmönster samt att diskutera och problematisera hur heterogeniteten beaktas i forskning om äldres resmönster. Sammanställningen av forskningsresultat har gjorts i två steg. För det första bygger översikten på ett antal avslutade och pågående projekt från år 2008 och framåt där VTI har medverkat. För det andra har riktade litteratursökningar gjorts. Tvärsnittsstudier har utgjort en viktig grund för att illustrera hur äldre åldersgrupper reser mindre än åldersgrupper i medelålder, detta gäller såväl genomsnittlig restid, reslängd och antal resor. Detta är ett stabilt mönster i flertalet industrialiserade länder. En viktig del i minskningen utgörs av en minskning i arbetsresor i de högre åldersgrupperna. Samtidigt är det viktigt att notera att tvärsnittstudierna också pekar på att det inte är alla restyper som minskar utan inköps-, service-resor och fritidsresor är fortsatt vanliga i äldre åldersgrupper nära pensionsåldern. Det är först i de allra högsta åldrarna som resorna blir något färre. Tvärsnittsstudier illustrerar också hur de äldre åldersgrupperna reser mindre än medelåldersgrupper när det gäller de flesta färdmedel. Ett viktigt undantag är gång. Gång uppvisar en U-formad kurva där yngre liksom äldre åldersgrupper går mer än grupper i medelåldern. Viktigt att notera är att resultaten i tvärsnittsstudier både är beroende av individuella åldrandeprocesser och samhällelig förändring. En central fråga i forskning om äldres resvanor berör också utveckling över tid vilket studeras i longitudinella studier. Även prognoser för framtiden är viktiga. Äldres resande har ökat över tid vilket framförallt handlar om ett ökat bilresande. Det sker också en förändring där både inköps- och serviceresor liksom fritidsresor har ökat. I notatet beskrivs också den aktuella forskningstrenden att beskriva heterogeniteten hos äldre trafikanter. Vi beskriver studier baserade på sociodemografiska variabler likväl som en trend att konstruera nya kategorier av äldre baserat på resmönster. Även en trend där fokus ligger på livsloppsrelaterade förändringar som inverkar på mobilitet snarare än kronologisk ålder per se beskrivs.

    Ålderism - ett fruktbart begrepp?2008In: Sociologisk forskning, ISSN 0038-0342, no 2, p. 18-34Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Ageism has gained growing attention in Sweden the last decade. Age is even discussed to be included in the discrimination legislation. Still, the concept has not been of much sociological interest. This article is an overview of the concept ageism and how it has been discussed in social gerontology. In the article it is argued that the overall focus has been on overtly expressions such as stereotypes and discriminating behavior while underlying structures and processes of power and power relations have not got enough attention. As a result the concept of ageism has become limited as an analytical tool. Thus, in order to develop the potential of the concept it seems crucial to explicate and theorise power relations. To accomplish this goal, i.e. to focus on how age based power relations are negotiated, challenged and reproduced in processes and institutionalised practise it is suggested that ageism might have to be complemented with other concepts, such as age coding.

    Sustainability transitions at the frontline. Lock-in and potential for change in the local planning arena2018In: Sustainability, ISSN 2071-1050, E-ISSN 2071-1050, Vol. 10, no 3, article id 840Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper explores challenges and possibilities for integrating goals of long-term sustainable development into urban planning practice, with a specific focus on local institutional conditions for sustainability transitions. The analysis is based on a qualitative single case study of a large urban development process: the development of a new city district in Hyllie in the city of Malmö, Sweden. Hyllie was branded as a flagship project for sustainable urban development, with particularly high ambitions on climate neutrality and sustainable energy consumption. Several innovative elements were initiated in the development process, for instance the "climate contract" between the municipality and large energy companies. In the paper, this climate contract is discussed as an initiative with a promising potential for sustainability transitions. In practice, however, the outcome of the development in Hyllie in terms of sustainable development is ambiguous, since the district is also framed around luxury shopping, entertainment, and an ambition to attract visitors from a long distance. The Hyllie development illustrates pre-requisites for work on sustainable development in a decentralized and market-oriented planning context. Theoretically, the analysis is inspired by the multi-level perspective (MLP) and institutional theory. The results illustrate how the development process was shaped by a complex interplay between actors with differing agendas and targets at different stages in the process. These results are applied in a general discussion of challenges and possibilities for urban planning to contribute substantially to a transition to long-term sustainable development. Overall, the analysis demonstrates the importance of considering specific local institutional conditions in strategic work for long-term sustainability.

    Kollektivtrafik för lokal och regional utveckling: förutsättningar för strategiskt kollektivtrafikarbete i Dalarna och Östergötland 2000-20112013Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This report describes a study examining the institutional conditions that have shaped public transport policy and planning at regional and local level in Sweden during the past decade. An empirically grounded understanding of these conditions, including formal and informal factors, is essential for longterm, strategic public transport policy and planning. The empirical material originated from the Swedish counties of Dalarna and Östergötland. The results show that there have been many challenges in local and regional public transport policy and planning during the time period in focus: 2000-2011. One of the crucial issues centres on the relationship between owners (local municipalities and county council) and regional public transport companies. Another important question concerns the cost models used in each county, and what incentives they have created for a long-term, strategic public transport policy and planning. A third crucial issue in the two counties concerns the capacity and/or ambition to establish and maintain an overall strategic view of public transport as a tool for local and regional development. Overall, the study provides a number of examples of challenges and drivers for more strategic, long-term public transport planning. In practice, a combination of formal and informal institutional conditions often determines the effectiveness of local and regional strategic public transport planning processes. The study is concluded by a discussion about the new public transport legislation, valid since 1 Jan 2012. In many respects, this new legislation is an attempt to solve some of the problems that characterised public transport planning in the early 2000s. One of the remaining concerns is however the relationship between regional public authorities and municipalities, who through the strong tradition of local self-government (which includes a local spatial planning monopoly) largely determine the potential for public transport to become a more functional and attractive alternative for personal travel. It remains to be seen how the new legislation functions in this respect. It is important to set out an approach for close monitoring and analysis of progress, in terms of both formal and informal institutional conditions, in strategic public transport work locally and regionally.

    Against the background of population aging, older peoples dance has attracted attention in research and its health promoting effects and social meanings have been brought to the fore. In this article we focus on the context and power dimensions of dance with an emphasis on the organizing of dance among older adults in terms of social discourses and age relationships. On the basis of qualitative interviews with 33 older dancers and 11 dance providers in Sweden, the study illustrates how dance is organized through social discourses on healthism and on the increasing group of older people as a powerful consumer group. The study highlights that older people and their social dance contexts are marked and subordinated in relation to younger age groups through non-verbal practices such as choreography and temporal codes. In short, dancing among older adults is not only a common health promoting and social activity, but also an arena in which age and age normality are negotiated and constructed.

    Det heterogena åldrandet: Vad kan begreppet tredje åldern tillföra?2011In: Tredje åldern: Sociala aspekter och medborgarskap / [ed] Kerstin Gynnerstedt, Maria Wolmesjö, Malmö: Gleerups Utbildning AB, 2011, 1, p. 49-62Chapter in book (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Tredje åldern beskrivs som den period under senare delen av livet då man är fri från arbetslivets krav och skyldigheter men ännu inte i behov av sociala rättigheter i form av vård och omsorgsinsatser. Under de senaste åren har begreppet tredje åldern kommit att användas allt oftare även inom det sociala arbetet, både nationellt och internationellt.

    I den här boken problematiseras begreppet tredje åldern med utgångspunkt från aktuell forskning ur en rad olika samhälleliga och sociala perspektiv. Det centrala temat i boken hämtas från livsloppsperspektivet och teorier om socialt medborgarskap. Här diskuterar författarna frågor som: Vilken roll har gruppen "tredje åldrare" i samhället? Vad innebär tredje åldern för det professionella och frivilliga sociala arbetet? Är fri tid enbart en medborgerlig rättighet, eller finns det också samhälleliga skyldigheter under den "fria" tiden?

    Tredje åldern - Sociala aspekter och medborgarskap riktar sig främst till studerande på universitets- och högskoleutbildningar på grund-, och avancerad nivå inom socialt arbete, social omsorg, vård-, samhälls- och beteendevetenskap. Den vänder sig också till yrkesverksamma inom fältet och andra som är intresserade av det sociala arbetets utmaningar inom äldreomsorgen.

    Äldre i transportsystemet: mobilitet, design och träningsproblematik2007Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Generally, more elderly will be travelling and be out on the roads as active road-users in the future. Research exists on the travelling habits of the elderly; but more in-depth knowledge on the elderly's preferences as license-holders, drivers, road-users and actors in public transport is required. The aim of this report is to give an overview of previous research as well as to indicate a number of directions for future research on the mobility of the elderly as actors within the transport system. The work has a clear multidisciplinary approach, with knowledge from social science, behavioural science and technical research on transport and the elderly. However, the main weight lays on social science and behavioural science issues. The report is divided into eleven chapters: 1) contains a short background, purpose and method questions; 2) discusses the project's scientific and social relevance; 3) provides theoretical background and theoretical concepts; 4) mentions previous research on the elderly as car drivers; 5) is a chapter on license-less vehicles; 6) discusses traffic and road design for the elderly; 7) discusses the elderly as pedestrians and bicycle road-users; 8) is about the elderly in public transport and 9) is about the training of elderly drivers. Chapter 10) consists of a final discussion and chapter 11) summarises point by point the need for research on issues which have come to light in the report

    Older female road users: A review2001Other (Other (popular science, discussion, etc.))
    Abstract [sv]

    The present study reviews and critically discusses existing research on older female road users. A first finding was that research literature on older women in traffic is scarce. In addition, the methods used in the studies reviewed for this report were predominately quantitative and there were few observable attempts to a deeper understanding of the central concepts, or of the main findings. However, the existing research evidence shows that women and men do indeed travel differently. The women’s travel is in general limited to geographically smaller areas and it is more influenced by social factors than men'’s travel is. To some extent, such gender-related differences decrease with age. The nature and causes of gender differences in travel and traffic behavior defy easy explanations. In the current literature, the concepts of traffic, age, and gender have not been problematized and specific methodological problems related to the study of gender or of aging were not often mentioned. It is suggested that a wider perspective including an increasing use of qualitative methods might be useful for future research trying to fill in the present gaps of knowledge and understanding in this field.
