The impact of childhood living conditions on illness and mortality in adulthood.
The aim was to explore the relationships between indicators of economic and social problems in childhood on the one hand and illness and mortality in adulthood on the other.
In 1968 a representative sample of the Swedish population born 1906-1951 were interviewed about their childhood living conditions, among other things.
Four indicators of adverse childhood living conditions were included.
Two of these reflect economic circumstances (economic hardship; a large family, defined as four or more siblings), and two reflect social conditions (broken family; conflicts in the family).
In 1981, 13 years later, this sample was re-interviewed.
