Abstract [en]

Using an approach that is as unprejudiced as possible, this study sets out to examine people's access to food shops in Sweden. The focus is particularly on disadvantaged groups in the population, since it has been suggested that their increased frequency of welfare diseases (e.g. obesity or diabetes) may be explained by deficient access to healthy foods. It is established that disadvantaged groups generally have shorter distances to food shops than the general population. Disadvantaged groups are also not hit harder than others by changes in accessibility. Nonetheless, it is possible to identify a number of geographical concentrations of disadvantaged people with longer than average distances to the nearest food shop. Besides that, access to car(s) appears to be higher in the types of areas where the distance to food shops tends to be longer.
