Key message

The Division of Health Services in the Norwegian Institute of Public Health conducted a second update of a review on scandinavian research about welfare, equality, social conditions, and quality of life.

Methods

We conducted a systematic review (of the format ‘systematic literature search with categorisation’). In May 2021, we searched in databases and in grey literature for studies from Scandinavian countries. Two people screened all retrieved records and assessed relevance relative to the inclusion criteria. The main inclusion criterion was that the publication regarded consequences of Covid-19 on welfare, equality, social conditions or quality of life. We extracted data and categorised studies based on the study abstracts.

Results

We assessed 219 references. We included 15 studies: 5 from Sweden, 5 from Denmark and 4 from Norway (1 was from several countries). The most frequent type of study design was cross-sectional (n=4) and there was a variety of study participants. The study topics varied considerably, with welfare topics like mental health, school/kindergarten and families with children.

In this systematic literature search with categorization we have not read the publications in full text and hence not critically evaluated the studies. We have only categorized the studies by type, based on the abstracts.
