The material is also too meagre to permit statistically reliable conclusions to be drawn concerning the tuberculosis mortality rate within and between the different districts. The tuberculosis mortality rate dropped drastically. When all this information is collated for a certain individual or a certain family, the result is a good framework of biographical data. The misuse of alcohol affects the economy and the ability to work, which usually brings about a drop in living standards, but alcoholism can also in itself bring about a decline in the body's capability to utilise nutrition. However, at the same time, the proportion of tuberculosis of all deaths increased, which indicates that competition from other diseases decreased. These and similar questions are posed.

The explanation is far more complex than that and will probably need a more elaborate explanation. Pulmonary tuberculosis, however, is a disease that is relatively easy to diagnose in its lethal stages. Apart from her committee work, Rebecka Svensén is also studying political science at the University of Stockholm. . These conditions may apply to small groups of individuals, but this is not sufficient to explain the overall decline of tuberculosis. These can be roughly sorted into biological and social determinants.

The results of family reconstitution for the seven parishes show that the hereditary element should not be ignored. However, no decisive correlation has been found between the tuberculosis mortality rate and the degree of industrialisation. The whole set of social factors often operated together in a complicated pattern and it is often impossible to establish exactly which of them bore the most blame. These represent widely differing societies, from a prosperous farming community in Skåne to a far bleaker community in the very upper part of Norrland. The epidemics that have occurred in populations that were previously protected show that the bacillus is still extremely virulent. Other forms of tuberculosis had such varied symptoms that using the nosological diagnoses of the day, made it hard to distinguish those forms from non-tuberculosis diseases.

Two areas, Gotland and Österbotten, are treated. Because of its central location, this area was quick to learn about the measures that could be taken to prevent contamination. The study also showed that there was a general increase in consumption mortality for men during the 18th and 19th centuries. In order to obtain longer series more exact mortality statistics are treated for the period 1750-1830 in four rural regions and the towns of Norrland. Here, tuberculosis is discussed as a model disease for the organisation of preventive and public medical health care.

However, the child may have inherited a relative inability to resist the infection. This enormous suffering can be prevented. One of the most important of these measures was the improvement of the general housing situation, and this was successfully carried out. She also attended a one-year course in photography at the Kulturama in Stockholm. In chapter 4, international research result that are relevant for judging the universality and particularity of the Swedish development arc discussed. Persons with good diets are far more resistant to the disease than those suffering from malnutrition or those with a poor diet. Men dominate in the upper age groups, particularly in the towns.

Chapter 7 deals with the victims of tuberculosis in two rural parishes: Tuna, a sawmill and iron mill district in Medelpad; and Fleninge, an agricultural district in Skåne. The considerable improvements that were made in the battle against tuberculosis would not have been possible if society could not afford to make the considerable investments in medical health care facilities and in research that took place during the last century. The general improvements in hygiene were also considerable. In the case of infectious diseases that give life-long immunity-for example, measles. For the year 1805, a cross-sectional study is made of all counties, towns and clerical districts in Sweden. It is possible to distinguish a complex set of factors which each contribute to an explanation of the appearance and course of the disease.
