Abstract [en]

The aim of this study was to describe how adolescents experiences their quality of life, and to

compare if there are any differences in how they experiences their QOL depending on where

they live, big town or smaller town. The aim was also to examine how adolescents

experienced their schooling. The study is empirically, quantitative with a descriptive and

comparative design. To measure quality of life a tried and tested instrument – Life

Satisfaction Questionnaire (LSQ) was used. The questionnaire was distributed and collected

by the authors.142 students participated, 79 from the larger city and 63 from the smaller city.

The results of this study showed that adolescents, 16-19 years, rated their overall QOL as high

and that there were no significant differences between the cities regarding on how the

adolescents experienced their overall QOL. There were significant differences in some of the

sub factors. There were significant differences in the factors ”physical symptoms”, influence

of illness” and “Experience of every day meaningful activities”. Adolescents from the larger

city experienced higher levels of meaningful activities, and adolescents in the smaller city

experienced less physical symptoms and influence of illness. The results also showed that the

adolescents rated their ability to manage their studies as high, and that there were few that felt

depressed or/and bullied. The adolescents in this study felt that their schooling was

represented of both a positive and a negative adjective. Funny and instructive recurred

frequently, but also tough occurred often.
