Abstract
The focus of the report lays on if and how walking speed has been affected by the increasing obesity rates in Sweden. Comparisions between people of normal respectively obese weight has been made. This is a a study that questions whether the current walking speeds derived from the 1960’s and the 1970’s still can be used as reliable measures given that the composition of the population is not the same today then 50 years ago. To get a wider percpective differences between ages has
also been taken into consideration.
