Abstract [en]

Internet usage in general and social networking platforms (SNPs) in particular have dramatically changed the way we spend our time. A relevant question is how this change in time-use affected the well-being of people in general and younger people in particular. We answer this question by reporting, for the first time, detailed information about time-use in SNPs and the well-being of Jammers, the users of HaikuJAM (HJ), a mobile app that aims to boost emotional well-being using collaborative writing techniques. HaikuJAM is output-dependent. Our explorative analysis finds that Jammers who spent most of their SNP time in HJ have, on average, a slightly higher level of both life satisfaction and other domain satisfactions (especially satisfaction with family and friends) than the other Jammers. They also have a few sociodemographic characteristics that are statistically significant different from the other Jammers (i.e., they are slightly older and more of them work and are married). Predominant Jammers also have higher expectations about the importance of the use of HaikuJAM for their well-being and their personal development.

Our results suggest that the app features attract a specific group of users who have a relatively high level of satisfaction with their life in general and with their family and friends, in particular. It is quite possible that creative individuals who might be introverts and/or are lonely are using HaikuJAM not only to write but also to connect with other individuals who like to write. Despite the fact that our analysis is largely exploratory, our results suggest a few possibilities to addresses the causality between users’ time spent in a SNP and their well-being.

Abstract [sv]

Dagens tillgång till (sociala) medier och datorspel har lett till en kraftig ökning av prokrastinering (Steel, 2011). Typexemplet är en students frivilliga fördröjande av studierelaterad verksamhet trots att uppskjutandet förväntas leda till ett sämre utfall. Bortsett från en initial lägre stressnivå (Tice och Baumeister, 1997), yttras det i försämrat välmående och hälsa (Sirois och Pychyl, 2016) samt sämre studieresultat (Steel och Klingsieck, 2016). Förekomst av negativ ”statistikångest” i gängse statistik- och metodkurser är också hög (Onwuegbuzie, 2004).

En stor utmaning för lärare ligger därför i att hjälpa studenter att jobba kontinuerligt och inte skjuta på sina studier. Utan tillräcklig repetition befästs ej grundläggande begrepp och färdigheter, varför djupare inlärning prioriteras ned på bekostnad av ytinlärning. I presentationen behandlas förändringen av en dugga, dvs mindre test under kursen som är poänggivande på sluttentamen, där ett tentamenslikt test ersatts av ’flipped classroom’- och ’gamificiation’-influerade veckovisa självrättande test i läroplattformen blackboard.

Varje veckas inledande självstudier av anvisad litteratur, fokuserad på basfärdigheter och begrepp, underlättas genom testen där studenterna erhåller direkt feedback och flera slumpvisa försök tillåts. Härmed adresseras prokrastinering genom att testen är datorbaserade (Larwin och Larwin, 2011) frivilliga (Steel, 2011) för-test (Brown och Tallon, 2015) vilka är uppdelade (Vaessen et al, 2017), inbäddade (Sosa et al, 2011) med självtävlan mot en balanserad nåbar nivå (utifrån observationer i blackboard samt feedback i kursvärdering). Trots enskilda test bereds studenterna också en social kontext (Deci och Ryan, 1985) där lärandet kan fördjupas genom diskussion med andra studenter.

Den nya duggan synes att bättre motivera studenterna att ta ansvar för sin egen inlärning genom att utgöra en utmanande lärmiljö. Detta märks genom att fler studenter lägger ned rimlig tid (enligt uppskattning från observationer i bland annat blackboard och kursvärderingarna) och kommer bättre förberedda varje vecka (vilket bl.a. märks på studenternas frågor). Studenterna väljer att vara aktiva och fokusera på rätt saker vid rätt tidpunkt (då de tar sig an duggan med dess grundläggande begrepp och färdigheter i början av veckan). Resultatet är en högre måluppfyllnad i såväl den aktuella som i efterliggande fortsättningskurs.

Några preliminära resultat kommer att presenteras från ett pågående forskningsprojekt - syftande till att utvärdera, utveckla, samt vidga (den krävande) implementeringen – baserat på de data som generats under fyra terminer (med knappt 500 studenter inklusive deras ca 150 000 enskilda frågesvar) kommer.

Abstract [en]

Our study is, to our knowledge, the first joint analysis of subjective and objective measures of well-being. Using a rich longitudinal data from the mothers pregnancy until adulthood for a birth cohort of children who attended school in Örebro during the 1960s, we analyse in a first step how subjective (self-assessed) and objective (cortisol-based) measures of well-being are related to each other. In a second step, life-course models for these two measures are estimated and compared with each other. Despite the fact that our analysis is largely exploratory, our results suggest interesting possibilities to use objective measures to measure well-being, even though this may imply a greater degree of complexity.

Abstract [en]

There is an increasing emphasizes on the importance of allowing people as they grow older to continue to work according to their work capacity and preferences. This paper builds on earlier literature that shows that firms employ older workers, but they tend not to hire them, and provides an explorative analysis of the establishments that employ older workers. A special focus is on how sensitive are the findings when the definition of older workers become more restrictive. Using employer-employee data from Swedish administrative registers, we found that the difference in establishments’ employment is large enough to explain some of theobserved difference across definitions. The retirement age in the guaranteed pension scheme, i.e., 65 years, seems to be one the institutional settings that affect both the employees and employers’ decision for work after 65, but also the establishment’s size, age and ownership.

Abstract [en]

We use a rich longitudinal data set following a cohort of Swedish women from age 10 to 49 to analyse the effects of birth and early-life conditions on adulthood outcomes. These latter include both well-being and the stress hormone cortisol. Employment and marital status are important adult determinants of well-being. Log family income and absence from school also predict adult well-being, although their importance falls when controlling for adult and birth characteristics. Among the birth characteristics, we find that high birth weight (>4.3kg) affects adult well-being. We predict the level of adult cortisol only poorly, and suggest that the relationship between life satisfaction and cortisol is non-monotonic: both high and low cortisol are negatively correlated with life satisfaction. The results from an OLS life satisfaction regression and a multinomial logit of high or low cortisol (as compared to medium) are more similar to each other.
