Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
This essay addresses the issue of stress by income earners in Sweden 18-64 years old and any possible relationship to their social ties and the individualization
process. The data were collected through a questionnaire, sent out to about 185 working men and women. The results showed a relationship between fewer social ties in everyday life and perceived stress of the individual. The result also showed a relationship between higher degree of individualization and stress. Both of these correlations is confirmed by previous research on the concept of work-life and theory of the new individualism.
One of the most interesting results the study showed was that there was none relationship with gender and perceived stress in the individual. The results contradicts previous studies and research which is interesting for future studies.
