Abstract [en]

This thesis targets students aged 16 to 19years old in Västerås. Based on a survey about sustainable lifestyle and health, this study examines if there are associations between affluence/income level and students’ living experiences. This study also investigates what effect affluence/income level have on adolescents’ living experiences in Västerås.

In this thesis, chi-square and kruskal-wallis tests are used to find response variables that can be used in logistic regression models with the aim of calculating the effect of affluence/income level on youth living experience. Furthermore, we also created Index and calculated the index value for 4categories of questions. Linear regression is then used to examine if affluence/income level is associated with these 4 indexes.

We find that most variables that are associated with income level are also associated with affluence level. There are a few variables that are associated with only income level, for example education in school. Affluence/income level has no clear association with the category indexes.
