Det andra utanförskapet? Om social exkludering på landsbygden
() and Anders Nilsson
Abstract: That living conditions differ between urban and rural
areas is often taken for granted. But what does it look like when we
explore more manifest indicators of social exclusion and marginalization?
Are these problems present also in rural areas? And if so, does the
character of such problems problem vary depending on local settings? This
paper delivers a short and summarizing review of some key indicators of
living conditions in rural and urban areas in Sweden. It is shown that on
most indicators problems are more frequent in the rural areas than in the
bigger cities. It is also shown that the mortality rate is higher among
socially excluded young adults in the rural areas as compared to their
counterparts in the bigger cities.
