Abstract [en]

Objectives. To analyse different aspects of health-related quality of life factors among members of reindeer-herding families.

Study design. Cross-sectional study based on data from a comprehensive survey.

Methods. The health-related quality of life (SF-36) factors were analysed on 99 (56 men, 43 women) adult members of reindeer-herding families. Comparisons were made between the reindeer-herding family members and a Swedish reference population. Associations between mental and physical component summary measures and a number of sociodemographic, biomedical, physical, psychosocial and socio-economic variables were analysed with multivariate regression statistics.

Results. Men scored higher than women on physical and social functioning and vitality. The average scores on the subscales for the reindeer-herding family members were similar to those of

the Swedish reference population, except for reindeer-herding men who scored higher on physical functioning and lower on bodily pain. For women, the quality of life was related to age, sense of coherence, life-style and behavioural variables, as well as to issues such as diseases among close relatives, social networks and the economy of their business. For men, it was mainly related to musculoskeletal pain conditions, age, sense of coherence and physical and psychosocial working conditions.

Conclusions. Men and women of the reindeer-herding families need partly different conditions to enjoy a high quality of life. From the results, it might be predicted that poor somatic and psychosocial health, increased intrusion from exploiters on the grazing land and declining profit in reindeer husbandry constitute important threats to a good quality of life among members of reindeer-herding families
