Projecting Welfare Trends from the Past to the Future: The Example of Sweden

Part of the Health Systems Research book series (HEALTH)


In 1978 the Swedish Secretariat for Future Studies, a governmental advisory board on long-term issues of broad societal significance, began its project “Care in Society”. The final project report was published in Swedish in May 1982, and an English version “Time to Care” followed in February 1984. The original purpose of the “Care in Society” project was to study how conditions in society affect the needs for care in different forms and how these needs are met, informally or through formal institutions. More broadly, the study came to be a general assessment of the welfare state and its growing problems.
