This project highlights second home users in the Swedish countryside, a group that is "invisible" in public statistical accounts. The purpose of this project is to analyze how second home users relate to their rural properties and the countryside. The following research questions are asked: i. How great and where are invisible populations? ii. How and when are second homes used in various regions today? iii. What plans do second home owners have for their properties and how will they use them in the future? iv. Do second home users perceive rural and urban homes and areas as complementary and equally important spaces catering for different needs and functions?
