This chapter investigates stress-related aspects of health, namely psychosomatic complaints and psychological wellbeing, using the demand-control-support model as the frame of reference and self-reported data from a nationally representative sample of Swedish compulsory school pupils. It discusses the links between the welfare state and the school, and between the work environment and health. It studies how working conditions among adults are associated with psychosomatic and psychological complaints by using data representative of the Swedish child population and direct information from children themselves.

Keywords:   health, psychosomatic complaints, psychological wellbeing, demand-control-support model, self-reported data, psychological complaints, welfare state, work environment, direct information
