Abstract [en]

Although one important aim of the Swedish disability reforms of the 1990s was to achieve a uniform regional implementation of the new disability act, commonly called LSS, public statistics still display differences between municipalities. An ongoing project, “A kinder, gentler democracy? Disability politics in Swedish municipalities”, aims at explaining the variation between the municipalities regarding their care for people with disabilities. The study is a total investigation of all municipalities, supplemented with qualitative case studies. Our first task has been to construct a measure of generosity concerning the implementation of LSS. We have found that generosity, as we have defined the concept, is multidimensional. Three dimensions emerge: Volume, Law and Change. The measure should be considered preliminary and developed further to serve as the dependent variable in the project to explain the variation in municipal implementation.
