Abstract [en]

This paper is analyzing the unemployment duration difference of individuals under different high school programs in Sweden. The cause of the analysis has from stemmed from different fields of study and its effect on employment positions in the labour market. We see education as a factor of key importance. In addition to research on an education level, the type of study also plays an important role. Therefore, how different school programs affect unemployment duration becomes the central question we try to answer in this paper. To pursue a clear analysis structure, we start with previous studies on an education level and show the author’s interest into the research of the field of study’s effect on unemployment. Job search theory is applied to do analysis on the data. Then, an empirical analysis of unemployment duration is conducted. This is done through linear regression using the least-squares method. Finally, conclusions are made as well as some policy implications and ideas for further research.
