Description

The data collection was performed in high schools in the counties of Stockholm, Södermanland, Uppsala and Västmanland during the autumn of 2005.

The study consisted of two parts:
1. Questionnaires for the students.
2. Ergonomic evaluation of the schools computer workplaces and a short interview with the person responsible for the computers at the school.

An information letter was sent to the school leaders where the setup and implementation of the study were explained. After that the school leaders were contacted by telephone and asked if their school wished to participate in the study. If they chose to take part, they were asked to send a record of all students in the second grade to Working Life Institute (Arbetslivsinstitutet). From these lists a selection of classes was made. Then a new contact with the school leader was made, where the leader was asked to inform the teachers concerned by the study. In addition, each teacher got a letter with information about the study. The students got information about the study from their teachers and from the first page in the questionnaire.
