Abstract [en]

Using data from the first four waves of the OCTO-Twin study (twins 80 + years), the present study investigated the stability and change of genetic and environmental contributions to pulmonary function. Using a genetic simplex model, variance in peak expiratory flow (PEF) at each wave was decomposed into additive genetic and nonshared (specific) environmental factors. Additionally, this analysis distinguished the source of these influences, either from previous waves (transmissions) or from novel influences at each wave (innovations). At each time point (except wave 1), the genetic variance was due to genetic transmissions from prior time points. Conversely, the specific environmental variance in PEF at each time point was mainly due to environmental innovations. These results imply that genetic factors contribute to the stability of pulmonary function over time whereas environmental factors contribute to its change.

Abstract [en]

The official rhetoric of welfare states unconditionally pays tribute to older people’s right to express dissatisfaction. In practice, users of ‘older service’ in welfare states may be deprived of their ‘exit’ option and face considerable constraints when it comes to raising their ‘voices’. For example, when older people in nursing homes would like to lodge a complaint, they may well be referred to the very staff members they depend upon in their everyday life. This article analyses a national case in which these contradictory tendencies are especially explicit: formal influence channels for older people in Sweden. Using data from structured interviews with 100 representatives of Swedish municipalities, and drawing on Hirschman’s (1970) theory on exit and voice, the article analyses obstacles for older service users’ influence in Sweden and develops explanations for these obstacles in terms of social contexts.
