    Gender differentials in active labour market policy2011In: Equality, Diversity and Inclusion, ISSN 2040-7149, E-ISSN 2040-7157, Vol. 30, no 4, p. 278-296Article in journal (Refereed)
    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.

    Gender-based career differences among young auditors in Sweden2013In: International journal of manpower, ISSN 0143-7720, E-ISSN 1758-6577, Vol. 34, no 6, p. 572-583Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Purpose - The purpose of this study is to examine whether or not gender-related differences affect the likelihood of promotion. Design/methodology/approach - The research is done on a unique dataset on the Swedish audit industry, an industry with a well-defined and well-known career ladder. We apply an ordered probit model to take all steps in the career ladder into consideration simultaneously. Findings - Females are on average less likely to be promoted. Separate regressions for males and females identified that the estimated promotion probability increases for males as an effect of having a child, but decreases more for males than females if males are highly involve in the care of these children. Thus, females who are involved in childcare are penalised by lower probability of promotion; however, males who are highly involved in childcare have much more to lose in terms of promotion than females do. For a family, this becomes a question of how to lose the least. Originality/value - Having access to unique data, from a policy perspective our study gives some new insight into the uneven distribution between genders of career interruptions related to childcare.

    Metoder för att utvärdera den regionala tillväxtpolitiken Lärdomar och råd för utvärderare och uppdragsgivare2009Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Den här rapporten beskriver olika metoder och angreppssätt för att utvärdera den regionala

    tillväxtpolitiken. Rapporten utgör slutrapport för ITPS regleringsbrevsuppdrag nummer 6,

    2008. Målgruppen för rapporten är utvärderare samt beställare av utvärderingar.

    Rapporten består av ett teorikapitel samt fem kapitel med fem olika metoder eller

    angreppssätt speciellt lämpliga för utvärderingar av den regionala tillväxtpolitiken.

    Utvärderingar är i allmänhet inriktade mot att antingen studera

    utfallet eller

    genomförandet

    av en åtgärd. Utvärderingar som studerar utfallet delas in i mål-, effekt- och

    effektivitetsutvärderingar. En målutvärdering svarar på frågan om målen har uppfyllts; en

    effektutvärdering om måluppfyllelsen är en effekt av åtgärden; en effektivitetsutvärdering

    om de uppnådda effekterna värderas högre än kostnaderna för åtgärden, medan slutligen en

    genomförandeutvärdering besvarar frågan om hur själva genomförandet kan ha påverkat

    måluppfyllelse, effekt eller effektivitet. En utfallsutvärdering kan med fördel kombineras

    med en genomförandeutvärdering, eftersom den senare kan vara till hjälp att tolka

    utfallsutvärderingens resultat.

    Utvärderingar av åtgärder inom den regionala tillväxtpolitiken bör ta särskild hänsyn till

    den regionala heterogeniteten. Rapporten ger därför rekommendationer beträffande

    användandet av regionala indikatorer samt rörande en statistisk metod – flernivåanalys.

    Indikatorer och flernivåanalys är båda användbara verktyg för att ta hänsyn till den

    regionala heterogeniteten.

    En viktig aspekt i utvärderingssammanhang är att kvalitetssäkra arbetet med utvärderingar.

    Rapporten ger därför även rekommendationer som avser utnyttjandet av ”metautvärdering”

    som metod för sådan kvalitetssäkring. Metautvärderingar är en bra metod för att

    kvalitetssäkra arbetet med utvärdering av program eftersom metoden innefattar ett tydligt

    lärandeperspektiv så att misstag inte upprepas.

    Tillförlitliga och användbara utvärderingar förutsätter en välgjord datainsamling av

    åtgärdens utfall, samt en dokumentation av genomförandet. En adekvat datainsamling

    förutsätter att de individer, företag osv. vilka åtgärden gäller, kan identifieras och följas

    över tid. Om inte nödvändig information finns i befintliga register, kan data behöva samlas

    in redan innan åtgärden har implementerats. Ett sätt att minska risken för svårutvärderade

    åtgärder är att utvärderaren kopplas in tidigt i processen för att garantera dokumentationen

    och därmed även utvärderbarheten.

    Då åtgärdsprogram går mot att bli allt mer komplexa, med många olika aktörer och

    målgrupper, beskriver även rapporten olika angreppssätt för att utvärdera komplexa

    program och horisontell samverkan. Att utvärdera sådana program kräver en öppenhet mot

    nya metoder, samt en kombination av både kvalitativa och kvantitativa metoder.

    Does work practice boost chances to finding employment – or is that the intention?2012Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    With few exceptions reduced payroll taxes are analysed with regards to employment and wage effects. Our study extends the impacts to cover several possible firm outcomes using a multilevel modelling approach. Between 20-55 percent in the variation in the outcomes can be explained by municipality differences. On firm level the result follows a clear business logic. In the short run, profits and turnover increased wish later on transforms into increased wages. After seven years we find indication of impacts on investments. Thus, the support has some short-term impacts that are reduced with time and the long-term effects are questionable.

    When outcome definition determines the result in impact evaluations: an illustration using the Swedish work-practice programme2017In: Evidence & Policy: A Journal of Research, Debate and Practice, ISSN 1744-2648, E-ISSN 1744-2656, Vol. 13, no 1, p. 39-58Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In this paper we investigate the effect of difference in outcome definitions on the result of impact evaluations. The Swedish workplace practice programme is evaluated, using matching methods. The key findings are that changing how the outcome is defined has a considerable influence on the results of the impact assessment. From the results of this study, it is clear that differences in evaluation results can arise from differences in how the outcome is defined. The lesson learned is that definition of successful outcomes of labour market policy has to be harmonised to make meaningful comparisons and learn from previous research.

    Transitions from part-time unemployment: Is part-time job a dead end or a stepping stone?2011In: Economic and Industrial Democracy, ISSN 0143-831X, E-ISSN 1461-7099, Vol. 32, no 4, p. 569-589Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article analyses the effects of individual characteristics on the probability of leaving part-time unemployment. The results show that it cannot be unreservedly asserted that part-time work offers access to the core labour market. Among the part-time unemployed, there are great variations in the degree to which they are likely to leave part-time unemployment. A concentration of labour market policy activities on the part-time unemployed who are least likely to succeed in finding full-time employment can, therefore, be expected to have positive consequences from both equity and efficiency points of view. In this respect, part-time unemployed women, persons with work-related disabilities and persons with temporary employment come to the forefront. The article shows that the likelihood of finding a full-time job is certainly not great for persons belonging to these groups. For many of them, part-time job is not a stepping stone but rather a dead end on the labour market.

    Regionalpolitiska effekter av sänkta socialavgifter2012Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Cuts in pay-roles taxes as a regional support measure is used throughout Europe. In this study we address some of the shortcomings in previous evaluations. A first shortcoming concerns expected outcomes. Most evaluations focus employment impacts and there are from previous research few indications that this type of support measures have any impacts on employment.From the theory and business logic we claim that support, such as cuts in pay-role taxes, that is given to a firm can be used to whatever the firm finds most suitable. Therefore, evaluating on employment impacts is a rather narrow focus. We extend the analysis to cover impacts on turn-over, employment, wages, investments, long run debts and profits.A second short coming is the time horizon. Most evaluations evaluate the impacts of pay-role tax cuts with a few years after the support was launched. In our evaluation the support was launched in 2001 and we follow firms until 2009 which gives us the possibility to monitor the impact development over an 8 year period.Finally, we propose a method to be used when evaluating regional policy. Since firms are nested within e.g. municipalities or industries a traditional econometric approach using dummy variables to capture regional and industry heterogeneity can produce both biased impact estimates and biased standard errors. To deal with this problem we apply a multi-level model which enables us to not only control for regional heterogeneity but also to some extent measure the importance of these contextual factors. Our results indicate that a substantial part of the variation in our outcome variables can in fact be explained by municipality characteristics, e.g. the composition of population and its characteristics, re-gional growth, etc.Furthermore, the results from the evaluation follow a clear business logic: In the short run profits and turnover increase. The increased profits are later used to increase wages (in-cluding owners‘ wages). Later on in the observation period (after 7 years) we find indica-tion on impacts on investments. As in previous evaluations we do not find any significant impacts on employment. Finally, we are able to identify that the profits increase in the beginning of the evaluation period, but that the effect diminishes over time. From a policy perspective we conclude that the support has some short term impacts that are reduced with time and the long term impacts are uncertain.

    Näringspolitikens effekter: brister i informationen om statliga satsningar2014Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Det går idag inte att veta om viktiga delar av de insatser som staten riktar till näringslivet får effekt. Detta beror på att de aktörer som har hand om insatserna inte är skyldiga att lämna ut uppgifter om vilka företag som fått ta del av insatser. Enligt Riksrevisionen bör det systematiskt samlas in och sammanställas uppgifter om alla företag som har fått ta del av någon typ av insats från staten.

    Redan 2009 konstaterades att bristen på information gjorde det svårt, och ibland omöjligt, att följa upp och utvärdera vissa näringspolitiska insatser riktade till enskilda företag. Regeringen gav 2010 Myndigheten för tillväxtpolitiska utvärderingar och analyser (Tillväxtanalys) i uppdrag att upprätta en databas över företag som fått del av näringspolitiska satsningar. Vid avrapporteringen 2012 konstaterades att det fanns problem med att samla in information från företagen med hänvisning till affärssekretess och arbetsbörda.

    Riksrevisionen gör bedömningen att denna brist i information måste lösas. Riksrevisionen rekommenderar därför regeringen att tillsammans med Tillväxtanalys utreda möjligheterna att, exempelvis inom regelverket för den officiella statistiken, införa en lagreglerad uppgiftsskyldighet som möjliggör uppföljning och utvärdering av näringspolitiska insatser. Rekommendationer riktas även till de granskade statliga bolagen och de av staten ensamt bildade stiftelserna.

    Effekter av förändrade regler för deltidsarbetslösa2014Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Riksrevisionen har granskat om huruvida förändringen i arbetslöshetsförsäkringen för deltidsarbetslösa har fått deltidsarbetslösa att i större utsträckning övergå till heltidssysselsättning. I april 2008 förändrades villkoren i arbetslöshetsförsäkringen för deltidsarbetslösa. Förändringen innebar att en deltidsarbetslös därefter endast kan ta ut ersättning för en del av en vecka tills att antalet uttagna dagar uppgår till maximalt 75. Tidigare var antalet dagar 300. Reformen var tänkt att öka incitamenten för deltidsarbetslösa att gå över till heltidssysselsättning. Förändringen beräknades även medföra utgiftsminskningar i budgeten.

    Riksrevisonens granskning visar att reformen har haft både positiva och negativa sysselsättningseffekter. Även om övergången till heltidssysselsättning har ökat för vissa deltidsarbetslösa så har samtidigt fler tidigare deltidsarbetslösa övergått till att vara helt arbetslösa. Det är framför allt för de deltidsarbetslösa som arbetar mindre än 2,5 dagar i veckan (korta deltider) som reformen har fått negativa effekter. Utgiftsminskningarna har uppnåtts i mindre omfattning än beräknat.

    Riksrevisionen rekommenderar regeringen att ge Arbetsförmedlingen i uppdrag att rikta insatser till deltidsarbetslösa, särskilt för arbetssökande med korta deltider. Regeringen bör även utvärdera effekter av beslutade arbetsmarknadsreformer och informera riksdagen om avvikelser från tidigare beräkningar i statsbudgeten.

    Productivity development and privatisation of the potable water and sewage sector in Chile2006In: Revista CIFE, ISSN 0124-3551, Vol. 9, no 11, p. 12-Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of this study is to investigate the effect of privatisation on productivity development in the Chilean potable water and sewage sector. We have access to high quality level data making possible to study the effects on a firm level. Productivity development is studied by means of the Malquist productivity index. Total productivity is divided into efficiency change and technical change. These three components are the analysed against privatisation with the use of a non-parametric Mann-Whitney test. The main result is that we do not find significant effects of privatisation on productivity development.

    Can business counselling help SMEs grow?: evidence from the Swedish business development grant programme2015In: Journal of Small Business and Enterprise Development, ISSN 1462-6004, E-ISSN 1758-7840, Vol. 22, no 4, p. 652-665Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Purpose– The purpose of this paper is to evaluate the state funded business counselling on firm growth.

    Design/methodology/approach– A quasi-experimental difference-in-difference estimation of treatment effects, using a matched sample of comparable untreated firms.

    Findings– Firms that have been granted counselling vouchers have a higher growth in value added than comparable untreated firms. This effect is mainly due to increased use of labour and capital, rather than increased efficiency. Results are upwardly biased due to sample selection among treated firms.

    Research limitations/implications– An improved strategy for identifying potential comparison firms from the pool of all firms may be necessary for further impact evaluations on business development programmes.

    Social implications– Policy makers may have to reconsider the programme design, since the programme currently suffer from a large potential for crowding-out, and low additional value of business counselling.

    Originality/value– The paper uses a matching procedure in order to infer causal effects of business counselling and compares the effect of, respectively, contamination and selection on estimated impact on firm growth and survival. The data used are an original, rich micro-level data set on state investment support to businesses.

    A warm welcome? Access to advisory services for men and women2018In: Economic Analysis and Policy, ISSN 0313-5926, Vol. 58, p. 100-110Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In politics, broadly stated ambitions such that a service should be available to all are fairly commonplace. However, evaluation access to service in a broader sense is often difficult and expensive. In this study we use a field experiment to investigate if the reception from the business development community differs contingent on the gender of the client. In the experiment, identical email requests were sent to actors in the enterprise promotion system. The result is that response frequency and time were independent of the gender of the sender. However, the male sender was more often given an explicit invitation to book a time slot. To delve further into the responses, we use sentiment analysis, a ‘big data’ method, to analyse the replies. The analysis reveal that replies to the female sender is more positive. Our conclusion is that even if there are some gender differences we would not consider it to be a systematic discrimination. However, the unconsciousness from public servants should be included in training to increase awareness of this issue.
