    Enkäter: att formulera frågor och svar2016 (ed. 1)Book (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Enkäten är sedan länge ett väletablerat redskap för både forskare och praktiker. De flesta vuxna får ofta fylla i formulär av olika slag, i de mest skiftande sammanhang. Hur utformar man då en enkät? Ett bra enkätformulär ska vara tydligt, överskådligt och enkelt att fylla i, och det får inte ta för mycket tid i anspråk. Dessutom ska enkäten ge undersökaren tillförlitlig och bearbetningsbar information tillbaka.

    Den här boken är en introduktion till konsten att göra enkäter, oavsett om dessa ska tryckas på papper eller distribueras digitalt. Den beskriver hur allmänna frågor kan preciseras och omvandlas till fungerande enkätfrågor och svarsalternativ. Författarna ger råd om i vilken ordning frågor bör ställas, hur formuläret kan utformas grafiskt och hur datainsamlingen lämpligen läggs upp. Allt för att undvika missuppfattningar, minimera fel och för att få många ifyllda formulär tillbaka.

    De praktiska råden inramas av en skildring av enkätens pionjärer i Sverige och en diskussion om enkätens framtid i ett alltmer digitaliserat samhälle.

    At risk of exclusion?: Degrees of ICT access and literacy among senior citizens2018In: Information, Communication and Society, ISSN 1369-118X, E-ISSN 1468-4462, Vol. 22, no 2, p. 55-72Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Drawing on data derived from a nationwide postal survey (n = 1264) with a simple random sample of Swedes between ages 65 and 85 (response rate: 63%), the article analyses the general patterns of: (a) degrees of information and communication (ICT) access and (b) ICT-literacy among Swedish senior citizens. The overall patterns of access and literacy are analysed in light of senior citizens’ assets – conceptualized as material, discursive and social resources – and their age and gender. The analysis reveals a positive correlation between levels of material (e.g., income), discursive (e.g., English skills) and social (e.g., social networks) resources and access to ICT. With greater resources, the average number of devices increases. The analysis also reveals a positive correlation between discursive and social resources and ICT-literacy. Gender has no bearing on access to devices, but might have some effect on ICT-literacy. The correlation between age, access and literacy is negative. With increasing age, both access and literacy decreases. In this respect, the study reveals a generational effect. However, since all three resources tend to decrease over the life cycle, the results are also discussed in terms of an age effect. These data and our analyses are contextualized by a critical discussion that reflects on the implications of these general patterns: What do they mean for senior citizens’ abilities to be included and participate in a continuously digitalizing society?

    Resources and repertoires: elderly online practices2018In: European Journal of Communication, ISSN 0267-3231, E-ISSN 1460-3705, p. 1-19Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Inspired by the theoretical notion of media repertoires, this article analyses what online repertoires Swedish senior citizens construct in everyday life. It answers two research questions: What online repertoires do elderly users have? How do elderly users’ online repertoires vary depending on their access to material, discursive and social resources? The article draws on data from a large, representative Swedish survey (n = 1264, response rate 63%), and uses correlations and multiple regression analysis to identify and analyse online repertoires with reference to elderly users’ access to resources such as income, infrastructure, level of education and social networks. The analysis reveals a significant element of selectivity in the online repertoires of elderly users. It also shows strong connections between different Internet activities. In addition, it offers substantial evidence in support of the proposition that individuals who are resource rich have broader repertoires and higher frequency of usage than other users.

    Abstract [en]

    The ambition to make all kinds of societal services, public as well as commercial

    ones, more effective and accessible via online applications is reoccurring

    all over the western world. To a large extent, such ambitions hold the promise

    to make citizens’ everyday lives easier, but they are, however, also problematic

    in that they presuppose a number of important prerequisites. They presuppose

    widespread access to ICT-applications of a standard that is fast and solid

    enough to manage to make users actually make use of these services. They further

    presuppose that all citizens and consumers, who are the inscribed users of

    these applications, have enough competences and skills to make use of them.

    Hence, there is an obvious risk that people who do not have access are being

    left behind in the transformations of these services from analogue to digital.

    In this chapter we attend to these risks by paying attention to contemporary

    patterns of access to, and use of, digital applications. The chapter is inspired

    by domestication theory and looks into and analyses different patterns of ICT

    access and use among Swedish senior citizens, with the following questions in

    mind: What ICT-devices do various groups of senior citizens have access to?

    To what extent do they make everyday use of them? For what purposes do they

    use these devices? The empirical material has been derived from a pilot survey

    which was conducted from August to September 2015.

    Warm experts for elderly users: who are they and what do they do?2018In: Human Technology, ISSN 1795-6889, E-ISSN 1795-6889, Vol. 14, no 3, p. 324-342Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The paper examines “warm experts”—that is, nonprofessional persons who help inexperienced users come to terms with digital devices—and their significance for the use of digital media in everyday life by elderly Swedes. We analyze data from a national survey (N = 1264) and from qualitative, semistructured interviews with 18 elderly Swedes (aged 65+). Our data reveal that the warm expert usually is a closely- related person, often a child or grandchild, who is strongly involved in nearly every stage of technology domestication, from appropriation (i.e., identifying the need, buying the item, and installing and adjusting it) to incorporation (i.e., choosing and downloading suitable apps, teaching how to use them, and solving technical problems). Although the clear majority of elderly Swedes have been online for more than a decade, the need for continuous assistance from warm experts seems to persist also among experienced users.

    Not a Generation of Non-Users: Variations in Elderly’s Online Practices2017In: NordMedia 2017, Tampere, Finland, 2017, p. 1-26Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Within both research and public debates, internet based media are mainly perceived as young people’s media. This becomes particularly obvious in popular conceptualizations such as “the Digital generation”, “the Internet generation”, or “the Facebook generation”. When referring to statistical studies of internet use and internet usage, this perception is also to some extent verified; younger users present both more and more varied patterns of usage. Young people in Sweden, between 16 and 25, spend an average of nearly 40 hours a week on the Internet. However, 50 percent of the elderly (75+) are still non-users. Hence, there is some substance in the generational view of users of online media.

    There are, however, at least two different but interrelated problems affiliated with such a view. Firstly, the generational view very easily overlooks differences in-between young users. For instance, the notion “Facebook generation” implicitly treats all contemporary individuals in their early twenties as habitual users of social media. Nevertheless, within this category there are in fact also very modest users of social media, and even absolute non-users. Secondly – and most importantly within the frames of this paper – a generational view of internet based media implicitly, by default, treats older people in general and senior citizens in particular as non-users.

    Rather than understanding senior citizens as a coherent generation of (non-)users, this paper departs from an ambition to illustrate variations in use of online media among senior citizens. It draws on a large scale Swedish survey (n=1264, response rate 63%). The paper deploys multiple regression analysis in order to map overarching user profiles among Swedish senior citizens. More specifically, it identifies and elaborates on five profiles: administration, consumption, welfare service, media usage and production. The analysis further relates these varying profiles to senior users’ assets in terms of material, discursive and social resources. The latter analysis reveals, for instance, how discursive resources (such as “skills in English”) have a positive impact on all five user profiles, while social (for instance “having children”) and material resources (such as “income”) have a positive impact on three and two profiles respectively.

    The paper concludes by reflecting on the potential implications of these varying user profiles among senior citizens. What do the variations between different segments of senior citizens mean in terms of their inclusion in or exclusion from a society in which both commercial and public services are reshaped from analogue to digital formats?

    Ekonominyheter – fortfarande en främande fågel?2016In: Journalistik i förändring: Om Mediestudiers innehållsanalys 2007 och 2014 / [ed] Truedsson, Lars, Stockholm: Stiftelsen Institutet för mediestudier , 2016, p. 116-123Chapter in book (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Projektet "Journalistik i förändring" har kodat 10.000 analysenheter redaktionellt material från 21 olika svenska nyhetsredaktioner åren 2007 och 2014. I kapitlet kartläggs kontinuitet och förändring i rapporteringen om ekonomi. Å ena sidan identifieras en förändring som följer samma mönster som nyhetsjournalistiken i stort: texterna har bl.a. blivit personligare och något mera känslomässiga. Å andra sidan är nyheter om ekonomi alltjämt mera refererande och mindre kritiska än t.ex. nyheter om politik. Ekonomi är i flera avseenden en sfär som journalistiskt behandlas som frikopplad från politik och andra samhällsinstitutioner.
