    Environmental efficiency and costs of environmental regulations: The Swedish pulp and paper industry 2000 - 20072011In: Yearbook on Productivity 2011: Yearly conference on productivity at Saltsjöbaden Analysis and development of its statistical base, 5-6 October 2011, Stockholm: SCB , 2011, p. 11-34Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    In this study we apply Data Envelopment Analysis (DEA) to analyse efficiency in presence of both desired and undesired outputs. We use register data from the Swedish national environmental accounts. The study concerns the Swedish pulp and paper industry. To compute efficiency, we use a directional distance function approach that allows scaling for different directions, both desired and undesired output directions under the assumption of equal importance. The analysis show that efficiency have increased over time, both in terms of desired output and in terms of environmental efficiency. The first analysis measure inefficiency if scaling is done with equal importance given to desired output and undesired output. This analysis shows an inefficiency of around 12 % meaning that there is a 12% potential to simultaneously reduce pollution and increase production of pulp and paper. In the second analysis scaling is only allowed in the direction of undesired outputs. This analysis shows that the average potential reduction in pollution is 22%. If, on the other hand, the potential is computed in terms of only desired output keeping undesired output constant, the average potential increase in desired output is 14%. In a forth analysis we discuss the potential to evaluate the costs of environmental regulations using the DEA methodology.Keywords: Environmental efficiency, directional distance function,

    Internalising external environmental effects in efficiency analysis: The Swedish pulp and paper industry 2000-20072016In: Economic Analysis and Policy, ISSN 0313-5926, Vol. 51, p. 22-31Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper investigates the efficiency in the Swedish pulp and paper industry using national account data. By using a directional distance function approach we are able to investigate different aspects of efficiency relating to the direction of scaling. In the first analysis, desired output (pulp and paper) and undesired output (pollution) are considered equally important. This analysis shows that there is a 12% potential to simultaneously reduce pollution and increase the production of pulp and paper. In the second analysis, only undesired output is considered. The analysis shows an average potential reduction in pollution of 22%. If, on the other hand, this potential is computed in terms of desired output, keeping undesired output constant, the average potential increase in desired output is 14%. In a fourth analysis we discuss the potential to evaluate the costs of environmental regulations using the DEA methodology. Finally, our paper demonstrates that data from national accounts can be used to investigate different aspects of environmental efficiency.

    Technical efficiency and productivity for higher education institutions in Sweden2017In: Scandinavian Journal of Educational Research, ISSN 0031-3831, E-ISSN 1470-1170, Vol. 61, no 2, p. 205-223Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This study investigates technical efficiency and productivity for Swedish higher education institutions (HEIs). One identified problem in previous research concerns adjusting efficiency scores for input quality. This problem is avoided using grades from upper-secondary schools. A second problem concerns heterogeneity with respect to subjects and institutions between HEIs. Using the Swedish national resource allocation system, students are weighted according to subject. For research production, a bibliometric index that allows for differences in publication tradition is used. A third problem when using the data envelopment analysis approach is the lack of statistical inference. Bootstrapping is used to approach this problem. The results indicate an average inefficiency of 12% and a productivity increase of around 1.7% per year.

    Effektiviteten i Försäkringskassans ärendehandläggning: en granskning av resurseffektiviteten vid Försäkringskassans lokala försäkringscenter åren 2010–2013 med DEA-metoden2017Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Försäkringskassan administrerar stora delar av den svenska social­försäkringen och är den myndighet som ansvarar för den största delen av statens utbetalningar av ersättningar till enskilda individer. Försäkringskassan förfogar över cirka 8,4 miljarder i förvaltningsanslag och har drygt 14 000 anställda. Denna kostnad och storlek, tillsammans med myndighetens centrala uppgift för trygghetssystemen, gör det viktigt att verksamheten bedrivs effektivt.

    Denna rapport analyserar den relativa effektiviteten på 44 av Försäkringskassans lokala försäkringscenter (LFC) under perioden 2010–2013. I dag är Försäkringskassan kontor organiserade på ett annat sätt, men slutsatserna och lärdomarna är fortfarande relevanta eftersom själva handläggningen i mångt och mycket är oförändrad.

    I analysen används en matematisk metod kallad DEA-metoden (Data Envelopment Analysis), där effek­tiviteten mäts genom att produktionen av beslut och aktiviteter jämförs med de förbrukade resurserna. Metoden gör det möjligt att identifiera mindre effektiva LFC, som producerar mindre än andra LFC med en given mängd resurser.

    Technical efficiency of Swedish employment offices2014In: Socio-Economic Planning Sciences, ISSN 0038-0121, E-ISSN 1873-6041, Vol. 48, no 1, p. 57-64Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper studies technical efficiency for Swedish employment offices between 2004 and 2010. Efficiency is computed using a semi-dynamic DEA-framework. On the input side we include a measure of input quality and we also control for services that are carried out by private contractors. On the output side we are using both intermediate and final outputs. The motivation for using an intermediate output is to take into account the fact that employment offices might have strengthen the possibility for unemployed individuals that remain unemployed to get a job in the forthcoming year. The study identifies an average yearly inefficiency between 7 and 10 percent. It is also observed that the inefficiency is unevenly distributed. To make employment offices more efficient this uneven distribution needs to be considered, otherwise efforts to improve efficiency might instead result in increased inefficiency.

    Kunskapssammanställning: Sambandet mellan arbetsmiljö och beslutet att lämna arbetskraften2014Report (Refereed)
    Abstract [sv]

    Syftet med denna kunskapssammanställning är att kartlägga forskningen som behandlar det direkta sambandet mellan arbetsmiljö och tidpunkten för utträde ur arbetsmarknaden. Med utträde från arbetsmarknaden menas att en person avslutar sin aktiva yrkeskarriär. När vi talar om pensionsbeslut avses personer som väljer att frivilligt lägga sin pensionering före eller efter 65 års ålder. I den händelse det rör sig om att personen tvingas sluta på grund av exempelvis hälsoskäl är detta en förtidspensionering. Det övergripande intrycket är att det finns begränsad forskning om detta direkta samband. Bland den forskning som kartlagts finner vi att den psykiska arbetsmiljön har betydelse. Låg kontroll tillsammans med höga krav ökar risken att lämna arbetslivet i förtid. Detsamma gäller för dåligt socialt stöd och då framförallt från personer i chefsposition. Vi finner även att fysiskt påfrestande och ergonomiskt bristfälliga arbetsmiljöer ökar risken för ett förtida utträde ur arbetskraften. Höga ljud, repetitiva och monotona uppgifter, tunga lyft, obekväm arbetsposition och hukande är exempel på fysiska faktorer som visat sig ha en empiriskt evident inverkan på tidpunkten för utträde ur arbetsmarknaden. Forskningen är enad om att personer med högre utbildning stannar i arbetslivet längre än lågutbildade. Anledningen till detta kan vara att dessa individer har bättre ergonomiska arbetsmiljöer, större kontroll över sin arbetssituation och kanske även är positivt selekterade jämfört med resten av befolkningen (mer motiverade osv.). Vidare har individer som arbetar i yrken som kräver mycket social kontakt med vårdtagare eller kunder, så kallade ”kontaktyrken”, större risk att lämna arbetslivet i förtid, något som även gäller för individer med högre utbildning såsom präster och psykologer. Informationsinsamlandet visade även på förekomsten av könsskillnader vad gäller tidpunkten för utträde ur arbetslivet. Forskningen pekar på att kvinnor har högre sjukfrånvaro, större hälsoproblem och lämnar arbetslivet tidigare än män. Även olikheter i hur män och kvinnor påverkas av faktorer i arbetsmiljön upptäcktes. Efter att ha gått igenom det relativt smala utbudet av forskning på detta område bedömer vi att behovet av fler kvantitativa undersökningar på det direkta sambandet mellan arbetsmiljö och arbetslivslängd är stort. Den typ av data som behövs för att genomföra dessa studier bör finnas tillgänglig via Arbetsmiljöverkets inspektionsdata och exempelvis inkomstdata från SCB. För att genomföra analyserna krävs en samkörning av dessa register.

    Arbetsgivares perspektiv på subventionerade anställningar: en kartläggning2015Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Trots en kraftig ökning av antalet subventionerade anställningar från mitten av 2000-talet är det ett stort antal arbetsgivare som inte använder sig av lönesubventioner. Denna rapport har försökt att kartlägga och analysera arbetsgivares perspektiv på lönekostnadssubventioner. När det gäller analyser som berör de arbetsgivare som använt sig av lönesubventioner är den viktigaste förklaringsfaktorn att man använt sig av subventioner tidigare. Våra intervjuer visar också att de arbetsgivare som använder sig av lönesubventioner ofta har ett socialt ansvarstagande. Ett av huvudresultaten med följande studie är att 95 procent av de som använder sig av subventioner är nöjda. Omfattningen i pengar och personens kvalifikationer var mest avgörande för anställningsbeslutet. Av de som inte använt sig av lönesubventioner är det 20 procent som inte känt till att möjligheten finns. Intervjuer med arbetsgivare utan erfarenhet av att anställa med lönesubventioner visar att de är skeptiska att hitta lämplig personal genom att anställa med lönesubventioner. När vi ställer en hypotetisk fråga till samtliga arbetsgivare om vad som skulle kunna få dem att anställa med en subvention framkommer möjligheten att få pröva aktuell person som den klart viktigaste faktorn. Utifrån våra resultat föreslår vi bl.a. att Arbetsförmedlingen, i ett försöksupplägg, ska ges möjlighet att agera bemanningsföretag och vi föreslår också att man ska genomföra en omfattande informationskampanj till arbetsgivare.

    Is starting a business a sustaianable way out of unemployment?: treatment effects of the Swedish start-up subsidy2016In: Journal of Labor Research, ISSN 0195-3613, E-ISSN 1936-4768, Vol. 37, no 4, p. 389-411Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In this paper, we evaluate the Swedish self-employment start-up program based on a matching approach using data from administrative records. In addition to information of labor market history, traditional human capital and socio-economic variables, the data at hand also include information on the self-employment history of participants and nonparticipants as well as that of their parents. Our results indicate that the start-up subsidy program for unemployed persons is a successful program regarding the integration of the unemployed into the mainstream of the labor market. We find that, relative to members of control groups, participants, on average, have an increased probability of unsubsidized employment. Our analysis of different educational backgrounds presents the strongest employment effects for the low educated unemployed.

    Making the business case for Public Employment Services: Cost-benefit analysis and productive efficiency analysis2013Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The PES EU2020 working group points in a briefing note (PES EU2020 no date A) to change processes in EU PESs called for by social evolutions. The note emphasises that public employment services’ operations will be massively and profoundly influenced by changes on both the supply and the demand side of the labour market and by such structural impediments as, for example, mismatch between labour demand and supply and low participation rates among vulnerable disadvantaged groups. Rapid and targeted mediation is considered to remain essential for PESs but it has to be combined with attention to provide transitions for individuals facing redundancy and career building. PESs should help job seekers adopt long-term career perspectives, stimulate them to enhance their competencies, give career guidance, give workers support to make smooth career transitions, as well as working with employers to ensure they meet their requirements and encourage and support them to provide career opportunities to more disadvantaged individuals.

    PESs have to develop their organisation and methods to efficiently and effectively respond to the changing needs in society and the labour market. Far-reaching changes in the tasks, organisational structures, and methods in PESs present corporate governance with great challenges—exacerbated by reduced budgetary resources. The pathway of change that has to be managed will be dotted with demands on decision-makers to choose between alternative courses of action. One of the main thrusts of this paper is to describe cost-benefit analysis, CBA, as a tool to assist decision-makers in choosing. CBA is a tool that judges alternatives in terms of their efficiency as regards the realisation of social objectives, which means that CBA allows policy makers to judge alternatives by their allocative efficiency. This requires taking into account the costs and benefits of the alternatives under consideration. The other main subject of the paper is about measuring productive efficiency which occurs when at a given cost the highest possible output of one service is produced, given the production level of other services. Such measurements make it possible to compare the productive efficiency of individual employment offices or to make comparisons in that respect between PESs in different countries. Therefore, measurements of productive efficiency can be the basis of actions to improve production and managerial processes. Examples of cost-benefit analyses of PES projects and productive efficiency analyses of PESs are given in the paper.

    Start-up Subsidies in Sweden: Treatment, Deadweight and Direct Displacement Effects.2012Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    In this paper, we evaluate the Swedish self-employment program using data from administrative records about matched groups of program participants and nonparticipants. We find that participating in the program reduces the duration of unemployment and the risk for re-unemployment. The self-employment scheme is not found to result in a significant reduction of jobs elsewhere in the economy whereas the study estimates displacement effects in the order of 35 percent from the compound of other Swedish labor market programs. According to previous Swedish survey investigations self-reported deadweight in the self-employment scheme varies across studies from about 30 to about 45 percent.

    The Public Employment Service: A Survey of Cost-Benefit Analysis and Productive Efficiency Analysis Studies2013Report (Other academic)

The remainder of this paper is organised as follows: Section 1 opens with a brief sketch of changes in the governance in EU PESs during the last decades. This is followed by an accounting framework addressing both efficiency and distributional aspects of employment services. Section 2 begins with a condensed description of basic principles of cost-benefit analysis which is followed by a review of a number of economic analyses concerning employment services that have been carried out in EU countries. Section 3 is devoted to methods to measure the productive efficiency of individual employment offices and of the PES in one country in relation to productive efficiency of PESs in other countries. It starts with brief overviews of the theory of production and of methods to measure efficiency. Then it presents a review of previous studies and a description of the production of employment offices. This section concludes with the development of a benchmarking model for European employment offices. Section 4 provides concluding remarks.

    Utvärdering av Almis företagsrådgivning: Utvärdering av rådgivningsverksamhet till etablerade företag2014Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Detta PM är en effektutvärdering av de rådgivningsinsatser som utfördes av Almis regionala bolag till etablerade företag under perioden 2005–2010. I detta PM används flera metoder för att skatta effekter och två olika mått på vad som anses vara rådgivning.

    Uppdraget

    Detta uppdrag är en effektutvärdering av rådgivningsinsatser i Almis regionala bolag under perioden 2005–2010. Syftet med studierna är att avgöra om etablerade företag som fått rådgivning via Almi har utvecklats bättre än företag som inte fått sådan rådgivning i termer av tillväxt i produktionsvärde, sysselsättning och överlevnad. Studien är en av flera underlagsrapporter i Tillväxtanalys pågående uppdrag att utvärdera den statligt finansierade företagsrådgivningen.

    Resultat och slutsatser

    Rådgivning definieras i rapporten på två olika sätt. I den första antas ett företag fått rådgivning av Almi om företaget gjort minst ett rådgivningsbesök. Det går att finna effekter på produktionsvärde respektive sysselsättning för enstaka år och för enstaka utfallsvariabler. För övriga år är effekterna lägre och inte statistiskt säkerställda. Storleken på de signifikanta effekterna ligger väl i linje med resultaten från tidigare utvärderingar. Företag som fått rådgivning via Almi har knappt två procents högre sannolikhet att överleva två år efter rådgivningen jämfört med företag som inte erhållit rådgivning.

    Den andra definitionen av rådgivning utgår ifrån att ett företag antas ha fått rådgivning om företaget gjort minst två rådgivningsbesök hos Almi. Den förändrade definitionen påverkar inte resultatet i någon större utsträckning. Inga effekter på någon av målvariablerna kan statistiskt säkerställas. När rådgivning definieras som minst två rådgivningsbesök finns inte heller någon statistiskt säkerhetsställd effekt på företags överlevnad.

    Sammantaget drar vi slutsatsen att det inte går att statistiskt säkerställda några effekter av Almis företagsrådgivning på tillväxt, lönsamhet eller överlevnad.

    Framtida undersökningar/Fortsatt lärande

    Det finns således betydande svagheter i det datamaterial Tillväxtanalys har getts tillgång till och som ligger till grund för effektutvärderingen. Inte minst finns ett stort bortfall avseende vilka företag som deltagit i företagsrådgivning. Innan man gör ett nytt försök att effektutvärdera verksamheten är det viktigt att förbättra uppföljningen, så att det i större utsträckning är möjligt att identifiera vilka företag som tagit del av rådgivning.

    Integration of immigrants: the role of language proficiency and experience2005In: Evaluation review, ISSN 0193-841X, E-ISSN 1552-3926, Vol. 29, no 1, p. 24-41Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In this article, the authors evaluate a Swedish pilot scheme that targeted immigrants with weak Swedish-language skills registered as unemployed at public employment offices. By sandwiching work-oriented language teaching and practical workplace training, the project aimed at enhancing the employability of project participants but also at alerting them to and preparing them for available training and further education opportunities. For the evaluation, a comparison group of nonparticipants was selected using a propensity score methodology. The results show that participation in the pilot scheme project resulted in much speedier transfers from open unemployment to employment, training, and education.

    Rätt lagat? Effekter av sänkt moms på restaurang och cateringtjänster i Sverige2016In: Ekonomisk Debatt, ISSN 0345-2646, Vol. 44, no 5, p. 40-50Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [sv]

    Vår analys av den sänkta restaurangmomsen visar på relativt kraftiga effekter på de undersökta variablerna omsättning, anställningar, lönesumma, rörelsemarginal och nettotillskott av företag i branschen. Den kortsiktiga effekten på sysselsättningen motsvarar 11 300 heltidstjänster över tre år. Vi bedömer att den sänkta restaurangmomsen även kommer att ha en långsiktigt positiv effekt på den varaktiga sysselsättningen. För analysen har vi vidareutvecklat en metodansats benämnd matchning med syntetiska kontrollgrupper, vilket enligt oss ökar möjligheterna att kunna uppskatta effekter av reformer som påverkar alla företag i en bransch.

    Impact of the VAT reform on Swedish restaurants: a synthetic control group approach2015Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Our analysis of the reduction in VAT for restaurant and catering services shows positive effects on turnover, employments, total wages, gross profit margins and net entry of firms. It is clear that the firms have used the VAT reduction in more ways than lowering prices.

    In this study we investigate the impact of the VAT reform for restaurant and catering services that took place in Sweden on January 1, 2012. The aim of this reform was to increase long-term employment in Sweden. Growth Analysis was commissioned to evaluate the effects of this reform from the perspective of firms. This PM serves as a foundation for this commission’s final report Reduced VAT on restaurant and catering services – final report.

    Evaluating the effects of a VAT reduction that includes all firms in an industry is a challenge and difficult methodologically due to the lack of a counterfactual outcome. In this study, we constructed our counterfactual using a synthetic control group (SCG) approach, which is a data-driven approach that only relies to a small extent on subjective choices. Unlike previous studies we assume that the VAT reform can affect each part in the profit function and also influence entry and exit in the market. We do the analysis on industry level by aggregating firm level data.

    The VAT reduction had a positive and significant effect on turnover, profit margins and net entry of firms. The average yearly effect is estimated to be 5.6, 1.25 and 1.6 percentage points respectively. These results are significant at the 5 % level. The average yearly effect on total wages and employment lies at 4.9 and 5.0 percentage points respectively and is significant at the 10 % level. The effects tend to decline over time, with exception for net entry of firms.

    Although estimating the exact effects of a reform remains difficult, our results are robust to sensitivity analyses. Overall, our results point to better performance for the restaurant industry compared to what it would have been in the absence of the reform.

    Abstract [en]

    Our analysis of the effects of the reduction in VAT for restaurants and catering services indicates a positive outcome for employment, total wages and turnover. It is clear that firms have not only used the VAT reduction in order to lower prices since effects on gross profit and the net surplus of new firms can also be seen. Growth Analysis concludes that the lower VAT rate will have a long-term positive effect on employment.

    Getting a full-time job as a part-time unemployed: How much does spatial context matter?2014In: The annals of regional science, ISSN 0570-1864, E-ISSN 1432-0592, Vol. 53, no 1, p. 179-195Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper investigates the extent to which differences in the probability to exit from part-time unemployment to a full-time job are accountable for by spatial contextual factors and individual characteristics. To correctly incorporate contextual effects a multilevel analysis applied using a mixed-effects model, a method frequently used in other disciplines but rarely used in economics, is adopted here to explore whether contextual factors account for differences in the probability of transition to full-time employment between individuals with different characteristics. The results indicate that there is a contextual effect and that there are some spatial spill-over effects from neighbouring municipalities, and unemployment rate partly explains the context variability. Furthermore, the contextual effect is found to be especially large for individuals without a university degree.

    Tingsrätters effektivitet och produktivitet2017Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Statens reformering av tingsrätterna har inte gett förväntad effekt. Trots förändrade arbetssätt och en sammanslagning av tingsrätter från 96 till 48 når många tingsrätter inte regeringens verksamhetsmål.

    Riksrevisionens granskning av den långsiktiga tekniska effektiviteten åren 2012– 2015 visar att effektiviteten är hög men att det finns en utvecklingspotential. Den varierar dock mellan de olika tingsrätterna. Vidare visar granskningen att produktiviteten har minskat över åren för en majoritet av tingsrätterna. Det framkommer också att tingsrätternas storlek har en koppling till nivån på ineffektiviteten.

    Granskningen bygger på DEA-metoden som mäter effektiviteten genom en inbördes jämförelse av tingsrätterna.

    För att höja effektiviteten och produktiviteten hos tingsrätterna rekommenderar Riksrevisionen Domstolsverket och tingsrätterna med att påbörja ett arbete för att identifiera interna och externa faktorer som påverkar både effektivitet och produktivitet. Riksrevisionen rekommenderar även Domstolsverket att ta hänsyn till att ineffektiviteten inte är jämt fördelad om effektiviseringsarbete ska genomföras. Enligt den modell som Riskrevisionen använt bedöms ett antal tingsrätter vara effektiva varför generella metoder för effektivisering riktade på samma sätt till samtliga tingsrätter inte nödvändigtvis är lämpliga.

    Arbetsförmedlingens arbetsmarknadsutbildning: små regionala skillnader i effekter2017Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Arbetsförmedlingens Arbetsmarknadsutbildning (AUB) syftar till att ge arbetssökande bättre möjligheter att få ett arbete och samtidigt ge arbetsgivare bättre förutsättningar att få arbetssökande med lämplig kompetens. Riksrevisionen har granskat hur väl Arbetsförmedlingen lyckats med att skapa likvärdiga effekter i olika regioner för den arbetsmarknadspolitiska insatsen AUB.

    Granskningen visar att skillnaderna i effektstorlek mellan olika marknadsområden är relativt liten. Variationen i effekten av AUB tycks inte heller ha ökat nämnvärt efter att upphandlingen av AUB centraliserades då Arbetsförmedlingen bildades 2008.

    För hela landet visar resultaten att det är fler individer som två år efter avslutad AUB har en inkomst som överstiger ett prisbasbelopp, drygt 40 000 kronor, än för jämförbara arbetslösa som inte tagit del av AUB. För hela den studerade tidsperioden var andelen med en inkomst över ett prisbasbelopp cirka åtta procentenheter högre för deltagarna i AUB än för personerna i jämförelsegruppen.

    För att uppnå likvärdiga effekter i olika regioner rekommenderar Riksrevisionen Arbetsförmedlingen att vid effektutvärderingar av arbetsmarknadspolitiska program inkludera ett regionalt perspektiv.

    A bootstrapped Malmquist index applied to Swedish district courts2018In: European Journal of Law and Economics, ISSN 0929-1261, E-ISSN 1572-9990, Vol. 46, no 1, p. 109-139Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This study measures the total factor productivity (TFP) of the Swedish district courts by applying data envelopment analysis to calculate the Malmquist productivity index (MPI) of 48 Swedish district courts from 2012 to 2015. In contrast to the limited international literature on court productivity, this study uses a fully decomposed MPI. A bootstrapping approach is further applied to compute confidence intervals for each decomposed factor of TFP. The findings show a 1.7% average decline of TFP, annually. However, a substantial variation between years can be observed in the number of statistically significant courts below and above unity. The averages of the components show that the negative impact is mainly driven by negative technical change. Large variations are also observed over time where the small courts have the largest volatility. Two recommendations are: (1) that district courts with negative TFP growth could learn from those with positive TFP growth; and (2) that the back-up labour force could be developed to enhance flexibility.

    TFP change and its components for Swedish manufacturing firms during the 2008-2009 financial crisis2018Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    A driving force of economic development is growth in total factor productivity (TFP). Manufactured goods are, to a large extent, exports, and represent an important part of the economy for many developed countries. Additionally, a slowdown in labour productivity has been observed in many OECD countries after the financial crisis 2008-2009. This study investigates TFP change and its components for the Swedish manufacturing industry, compared with the private service sector, during the years 1997-2013, centering on the financial crisis. Stochastic frontier analysis (SFA) is used to disentangle persistent and transient efficiency from firm heterogeneity and random noise, respectively. In addition, technical change (TC), returns to scale (RTS) and a scale change (SC) component are also identified. Along with the empirical analysis, an elaborative discussion regarding TC in SFA is provided. The persistent part for manufacturing (service) is 0.796 (0.754) and the transient part is 0.787 (0.762), indicating improvement potentials. Furthermore, TFP change is substantially lower between the years 2007-2013, compared to 1997-2007, driven by lower technological progress. Policy should, therefore, target interventions that enhance technology. However, care needs to be taken so that policies do not sustain low-productive firms that otherwise would exit the market.

    Technical efficiency decomposed: the case of Ugandan referral hospitals2017In: The Central European Review of Economics and Management, ISSN 2543-9472, Vol. 1, no 4, p. 117-146Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Aim: In an audit report provided to the Ugandan Parliament by the Office of the Audit General, Uganda, technical efficiency in Ugandan referral hospitals was measured and analysed. The audit report pointed out that there was a relatively low level of technical inefficiency, at least in comparison with other African countries. The purpose of this study is to look further into the issue of why there is inefficiency.

    Design / Research methods: We use a Data Envelopment Analysis framework and decompose long-run technical efficiency into short-term technical efficiency, scale efficiency and congestion.

    Conclusions / findings: Our results reveal that the source of the long-run inefficiency varies over the years. For 2012, more than 50% of the observed inefficiency relates to scale factors. However, in 2013 and 2014 the major contributor to the long-run inefficiency was input congestion.

    Originality / value of the article: Even though there are a substantial amount of research on efficiency in African hospitals, no other study have investigated existence of congestion. In that respect our research contributes to the existing research.

    Implications of the research: We recommend that inefficient hospitals should use efficient hospitals as benchmarks for improving their own efficiency. Further, since a large part of the technical inefficiency relates to congestion we recommend further investigation to identify factors in the production, or organisation that could be related to congestion.

    Economies of scale in the Swedish Sawmill Industry2003In: Journal of Forest Economics, ISSN 1104-6899, E-ISSN 1618-1530, Vol. 9, no 3, p. 169-179Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In this study, scale elasticity and optimal size of the Swedish sawmill industry is investigated.An input

    distance function is used to compute scale elasticity. The result of the study shows that the average

    scale elasticity is above 1, indicating existence of economies of scale in the industry. By comparing the

    size of the average input – output vectors with the inefficiency adjusted input vector and the output

    vector for scale efficient units, we could see that, in general, there are gains to be made by expansion.

    However, some units may gain from becoming smaller.

    How can we use the result from a DEA analysis?: identification of firm-relevant reference units2003In: Journal of Applied Economics, ISSN 1514-0326, E-ISSN 1667-6726, Vol. 6, no 1, p. 157-175Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Two types of guidelines can be obtained from a DEA (data envelopment analysis) analysis. Firstly, the firm can reduce input or increase production according to the DEA results. Secondly, an inefficient firm might be able to identify reference units. This makes it possible for the inefficient firm to, on site, study production that is more efficient, and thereby get information on e.g. efficient organisational solutions. In this study, we focus on how to detect these firm-relevant reference units. While applying the existing methods for identification of reference units, i.e. the intensity variable method and the dominance method, on a data set concerning booking centres in the Swedish taxi market, shortcomings in these methods were identified. This motivates the development of a new method. This new method, the sphere measure, enables an inefficient unit to identify existing and efficient units that have the largest similarity with itself. The identified units will thus be firm-relevant reference units.

    Abstract [en]

    This study investigates different types of vertically integrated ownership types inrelation to technical efficiency, in the Swedish sawmill industry. The theoreticalfindings connecting vertical integration and efficiency points in two directions:both in favour for non-integrated firms and in favour for fully integrated firms.In the study, significant differences between ownership types are not found. Onepossible interpretation of this result is that the integration advantages outweigh thepossible negative effects an integrated firms will have from maximising an integratedobjective function.

    Abstract [en]

    Purpose – One of the most successful labour market programmes in Sweden is a start-up subsidy programme for job seekers registered at the public employment service. The purpose of this paper is to examine if there are gender differences in outcomes of this programme.

    Design/methodology/approach – The analysis compares the outcome for female participants of the start-up programme with that of four other matched groups: male and female non-participants, male non-participants, female non-participants, and male participants.

    Findings – The authors' results indicate that females entering the programme have a higher success rate than both female and male non-participants; however, the impact is less in comparison with male than with female non-participants. Compared to a matched sample of males in the start-up scheme, female participants are less successful.

    Originality/value – The paper concludes is that it is essential to find evidence regarding which programmes work for which target groups and to find out why effects differ by categories. Such knowledge could be used for fine-tuning labour market policy programmes.

    Mentoring as a way of integrating refugees on the labour market: evidence from a Swedish pilot scheme2017Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Mentoring of immigrants and refugees is a policy measure widely used across the world andhas been so for some years. However, there is surprisingly little empirical evidence. This study investigates the impact of a mentoring programme on the labour market status of newly arrived refugees. The programme was conducted in Sweden between 2010 and 2012. The key finding of the study is that male participants after participating have moved closer to the core labour market and that there is little that relates to the content of the mentoring programme that affect the outcome.

    Mentoring as a way of integrating refugees on the labour market: evidence from a Swedish pilot scheme2017In: Economic Analysis and Policy, ISSN 0313-5926, Vol. 56, no December, p. 51-59Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Despite the fact that mentoring is used as a mean to increase the speed of labour market integration for immigrants around the world there is little evidence of the impacts of this type of programme. This study investigates the impact of a Swedish mentoring programme on the labour market status of newly arrived refugees. The key finding is that mentoring as a universal ‘quick fix’ does not attract a great deal of support. However, mentoring does show promise for males for whom a positive and significant impact when the outcome is defined as a yearly income exceeding one basic amount (appx. 4200 euro). For females, no short-term effect is found, although it is suggested the absence of an impact may be due to lock-in effects in other labour market programmes.
