Abstract [sv]

Syftet med studien var att beskriva hur ungdomar i åldersgruppen 16-19 år upplever sin

livskvalitet samt att undersöka om det finns skillnader i hur flickor och pojkar upplever sin

livskvalitet. Studien genomfördes på en gymnasieskola i Mellansverige i januari 2008 och är

en empirisk kvantitativ tvärsnittsstudie med beskrivande och jämförande design. Sammanlagt

deltog 90 elever, 47 flickor och 43 pojkar. Författarna använde sig av instrumentet Life

Satisfaction Questionnaire (LSQ). Huvudresultatet visade att hela undersökningsgruppen

skattade högst livskvalitet i faktorn fysiska symtom. Lägst livskvalitet upplevde eleverna sig

ha i faktorerna kvaliteten i vardagslivets meningsfulla och roliga aktiviteter. I jämförelsen

mellan könen, fanns signifikanta skillnader i upplevd livskvalitet. Pojkarna upplevde

signifikant färre fysiska symtom än flickorna. Flickorna i sin tur upplevde kvaliteten i

relationer till vänner och närstående signifikant högre än pojkarna. Ungdomarna bedömde

sina studieresultat och sin förmåga att klara av studierna som goda, flickor hade på dessa

frågor skattat signifikant högre värden än pojkarna. De flesta eleverna upplevde sig inte som

mobbade. På frågan om nedstämdhet hade en tredjedel av ungdomarna uppgett att de i viss

utsträckning eller mer känt sig nedstämda. På denna fråga hade pojkarna skattat signifikant

högre värden än flickorna.

Nyckelord: Livskvalitet,

Abstract [en]

The purpose of this study was to describe how adolescents in the age of 16-19 experience

their quality of life and to explore if there are any differences between the sexes.

The study was carried out at a high school in Sweden during January 2008 and is an

empirical, quantitative cross sectional study with a descriptive and comparative design. The

final sum of participants were 90, 47 girls and 43 boys. The authors used the Life Satisfaction

Questionnaire. The results of the study showed that the highest scores were found in physical

symptoms. The teenagers scored lowest in the everyday life’s fun and meaningful activities.

The result showed differences between the sexes, boys rated significantly higher quality of

life than girls in physical symptoms, whereas girls rated their quality of life significantly

higher in relations to family members and friends. The teenagers estimated their study result

and their ability to manage their studies as rather good, in these subjects, the girls rated

significantly higher scores than the boys. The majority of the students did not feel harassed. A

third of the adolescents stated that they had felt depressed in some degree or higher. In this

question, the boys rated significantly higher scores than the girls.
