Rapport, 1984

Consumer report ("avnämarrapoort" in Swedish) for a research foundation (Arbetarskyddsstyrelsen, Stockholm). This research project was carried out together with personnel from the departments of economics, psychology and sociology at Gothenburg University in Gothenburg (however, one of the two economists was from Karlstad, a school that during this particular period if time was not fully accepted university, but a sort of subordinate enterprise to Gothenburg).

A comment: As was the praxis during this (early) period of time at Chalmers University of Technology, as well as probably at some other universities. This means that frequent and vast academic publication by means of e.g. conference papers and refereed contributions to scientific journals was almost unheard of. At least so for some of the applied science disciplines (today are the situation indeed very different) (i.e. earlier was the publication in many respects focused on trying to satisfy the executive administrator the research foundation in question).
