Mixed-Use City : A qualitative study of city design and its impact onpublic health (English)
Abstract [sv]

Hälsa och samhällsplanering är naturligt sammanlänkade. Strategier för att främja

hälsa och välmående hos invånare i städer har dock varit olika genom tiderna. I den

byggda miljön är tillgänglighet, säkerhet och attraktiva miljöer tillsammans med

tillgång på arbete och stödjande sociala nätverk förutsättningar för att främja hälsa. I

dagens samhällsplanering kan begreppet blandstad ses som ett ideal. Studien avser att

belysa dagens stadsideal och stadsutveckling i förhållande till folkhälsa. Den

kvalitativa metoden Grundad teori har använts som inspiration för insamling och

bearbetning av data. Studien är baserad på kvalitativa intervjuer med tjänstemän och

politiker i Göteborgs stad. Datan utgår från deras upplevelser och erfarenheter av

begreppet blandstad i relation till stadsutvecklingen i Göteborg. Vidare relateras

studiens resultat till ett folkhälsoperspektiv som bygger på fyra av Statens

folkhälsoinstituts folkhälsomål samt vetenskap och teorier kring folkhälsa. Studiens

resultat indikerar på att informanternas bild av begreppet blandstad skiljer sig i vision

och verklighet. I studien framkommer att blandstad som kan bevara den sociala

dimensionen har goda möjligheter att främja folkhälsa.

supportive social networks required as prior conditions to promote health. The

concept of mixed-use can be seen as an ideal in urban planning of today. The study

intends to shed light on today's urban ideals and urban development in relation to

public health. For collection and process of data the qualitative method of Grounded

theory is used as inspiration. The study is based on interviews of officials and

politicians in the city of Gothenburg. The data is founded on their knowledge and

experiences of mixed-use in relation to urban development in Gothenburg. In

addition, the data of the study relates to a public health perspective, based on four of

the public health objectives of the Swedish National Institute of Public Health a long

with science and theories of public health. The result of the study indicate that the

informants picture of the concept of mixed-use differ from vision and reality. From

the result of the study it emerges that mixed-use that can preserve the social

dimension have good possibilities to promote public health.
