Doctoral student, Economic History, Umeå University
I am a doctoral student in economic history at Umeå University, Sweden. In my doctoral thesis I study how individuals made a living in old age in Sweden between 1890 and 1960. I am interested in different aspects, such as labor force participation, intergenerational coresidence and social security. The health aspect will play an important role in the thesis, since work in old age, family care and eligibility for welfare, in many ways were affected by it.
