Abstract [en]

An interdisciplinary research group entitled ”Twincities Research Group” has been initiated at Linköping University. The term twin cities refer to the Swedish cities Linköping and Norrköping, neighbours that are nearly equal in size. These two cities, located within a distance of only 40 km, are governed by the same county council and consequently have the same health care structure. However, health is remarkably different in these twin cities. The comparison of public health in these two cities during the development from the industrial to the post-industrial era has a design similar to classical experiments with a control and an experiment group, since the social history and the socio-economic structures of the cities are radically different. Through an interdisciplinary research design including historical, epidemiological and clinical competence we have a unique opportunity to increase our understanding of how social environment may affect public health.

Abstract [sv]

Om man jämför olika indikatorer på folkhälsa i de två tvillingstäderna Linköping och Norrköping framkommer betydande skillnader trots att städerna ligger på endast fyra mils avstånd och är en del av samma landsting.

Jämförelsen i folkhälsa mellan dessa tvillingstäder liknar ett klassiskt experiment, då vissa faktorer kan hållas under kontroll. Det är framför allt socialhistorien och den sociala sammansättningen som skiljer sig åt mellan städerna.

Genom en tvärvetenskaplig forskningsansats med både ett historiskt och ett framtidsperspektiv på tvillingstäderna får vi en unik samhällsmedicinsk forskningsdesign, som ökar våra kunskaper om folkhälsan och dess bestämningsfaktorer.
