Abstract [en]

This study conducted a regression model in order to see if education, literacy or the use of information sources affects mother’s decision to fully vaccinate her child. Also, to see if the decision depends on the gender and how it has changed during the time period 1992-2006. The results show that the bias towards girls has declined regarding full immunization. The mean level of education has increased, and education’s effect on full immunization seems to have decreased, which indicates social and economical development. The importance of using information channels seems to have developed due to simultaneous technological development.
