Om mig

Jag är doktorand i sociologi och tillhör forskningsgruppen för Levnadsnivåundersökningen (LNU) vid Institutet för social forskning (SOFI). Mitt forskningsintresse ligger inom familjesociologi och min avhandling fokuserar på konsekvenserna av skilsmässa/separation.

    The study aimed to explore which factors influence intergenerational contacts between adult children and their separated parents, focusing on childhood characteristics.


    Children from separated families have less frequent contact with their parents compared with peers from intact families. Yet few studies have examined the heterogeneity in intergenerational contact within separated families.


    Data were based on Swedish Level of Living Survey. Using linear probability model, the first analysis showed that intergenerational contacts vary depending on family type (n = 2,500). The study then explored variations in contacts within separated families (n = 472).


    The findings show that previous frequent contacts with the nonresident parent were positively correlated with current father–child contacts.


    Separation has long‐term consequences on intergenerational contacts, and these are partly predicted by childhood characteristics.


    The findings suggest, for example, that alternate living (i.e., children living spending equal time with their parents after separation) may contribute to a more equal distribution of the contact between children and their separated parents even in adulthood and help narrow the gender gap in intergenerational contacts within separated families.

    During the last century, the proportion of children and adolescents who have experienced a parental divorce or separation has increased dramatically, in Sweden and elsewhere. Vast research has shown that children in these families fare less well than children in intact families, both in the short and in the long run and on a number of outcomes. Much less is known about whether parental divorce means the same for children and adolescents today as it did a century ago. Have living conditions changed and, if so, how? Moreover, has the association between parental divorce and child well-being changed in magnitude over time? To answer these questions six waves of the Swedish Level of Living Survey were used. The data set contains indicators on childhood living conditions for an entire century of Swedes, born 1892–1991. We show that living conditions for children of divorce have indeed changed on a number of dimensions but there is no evidence of magnitude change in the association between parental divorce/separation and two child outcomes, psychological well-being and educational attainment.
