    A wavelet-based panel unit-root test in the presence of an unknown structural break and cross-sectional dependency, with an application of purchasing power parity theory in developing countries2017Ingår i: Applied Economics, ISSN 0003-6846, E-ISSN 1466-4283, Vol. 49, nr 21, s. 2096-2105Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    This article introduces two different non-parametric wavelet-based panel unit-root tests in the presence of unknown structural breaks and cross-sectional dependencies in the data. These tests are compared with a previously suggested non-parametric wavelet test, the parameteric Im-Pesaran and Shin (IPS) testand a Wald type of test. The results from the Monte Carlo simulations clearly show that the new wavelet-ratio tests are superior to the traditional tests both interms of size and power in panel unit-root tests because of its robustness to cross-section dependency and structural breaks. Based on an empirical Central American panel application, we can, in contrast to previous research (where bias due to structural breaks is simply disregarded), find strong, clear-cut support for purchasing power parity (PPP) in this developing region.

    Labor supply effects of increases in non-labor income: A study about older working individuals labor force participation2016Självständigt arbete på grundnivå (kandidatexamen), 10 poäng / 15 hpStudentuppsats (Examensarbete)
    Abstract [en]

    The ageing of the Swedish population entails an increase of public and pension expenditure. A solution to keep the compensation level constant is to make individuals retire later from the labor force. In order to understand what actions need to be implemented, there is a need of more knowledge about the characteristics of individuals who chose to remain in the labor force after the normal age of retirement. This essay investigates how senior workers’ that are above the normal retirement age responds to an increase of non-labor income and how it affects labor supply. The results show that around 66 % of individuals will continue to work to the same extent, around 15 % will choose to reduce hours of work, and near 19 % will chose to retire. Also the results show that a person that will not change anything in hours of work after an increase in non-labor income will most likely be a male that is self-employed, who really likes his job and has a postgraduate degree. One conclusion in this essay is that to only focus on compensation levels in different social insurance systems to increase senior workers’ labor force participation will not be as effective as if also focus would be on social norms and cultural beliefs to increase engagement towards work.

    Attitudes toward immigration: A mapping of the development and analysis in attitudes towards immigration in Europe2018Självständigt arbete på avancerad nivå (magisterexamen), 20 poäng / 30 hpStudentuppsats (Examensarbete)
    Abstract [en]

    The research on natives’ attitudes regarding immigration has increased during the past decades. The overall findings question the common theory of labor market competition and that native attitudes are affected by personal economic considerations. In the same time an increased concern in the political debate has become immigration. In many countries, there is a growth and progress of political parties with a far-right orientation that disapproves and attempts to prevent immigration. We examine data on attitudes towards immigration from eight rounds of the European social survey (ESS) which covers the years between 2002-2016. We study if the attitudes in Europe towards immigration from poor non-member countries of the European Union have changed during the 21th century and examine if the massive acceleration of refugee applications during the refugee crisis in 2015 has had an impact on the attitudes towards immigration. We estimate different models to examine how different factors are associated with individuals' attitudes towards immigration. Furthermore, we test if the labor market competition model holds for the seventh round of ESS due to limitation in data. We find that natives’ attitudes have not become worse in Europe, and that the refugee crisis in 2015 has not made the attitudes worse. We find that the factors that are associated with individual attitudes towards immigration are to a large degree connected with cultural values and beliefs, and that individuals with more years of schooling are more likely to favor immigration regardless of where the immigrants come from. These findings are consistent with the growing body of empirical findings that considers that cultural values and believes are the main drivers of attitudes towards immigration, and that actual effects of immigration on income and employment are quite small. These findings put the labor market competition premise in forming immigration attitudes into question.

    The effect of the housing market on mobility and unemployment2013Självständigt arbete på grundnivå (kandidatexamen), 10 poäng / 15 hpStudentuppsats (Examensarbete)
    Abstract [en]

    This thesis analyzes the relationship of housing tenure, mobility and unemployment. With data on the municipal level in Sweden from 1998 to 2010 it is shown that the share of house ownership affects mobility and unemployment negatively while the share of tenant ownership has no effect on mobility and unemployment. The share of house ownership affects primarily the share of out migration from the municipality. The majority of the negative effect of house ownership on unemployment does not go through mobility. The model used is a two way fixed effect model. The different effects of the two types of ownership indicate that they have different characteristics. One explanation could be that house owners are more tied to the municipality than tenant owners. The result does not support the argument that owners in general have higher unemployment because they are less mobile. There is no evidence for that an increase in the share of owners increases the unemployment rate in Sweden.

    The intergenerational transmission of schooling: Are mothers really less important than fathers?2015Ingår i: Economics of Education Review, ISSN 0272-7757, E-ISSN 1873-7382, Vol. 47, s. 100-117Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    There is a "puzzle" in the literature on the intergenerational transmission of schooling, where twin studies emphasize the importance of fathers' schooling, whereas IV-studies often emphasize the importance of mothers. We provide new evidence on this "puzzle" using register based Swedish data on the largest sample of twins used so far in the literature. In contrast to previous twin studies, our results confirm the importance of mothers' schooling. We also provide the first twin-based evidence of possible role model effects, where our estimates suggest that mother's schooling matters more than father's schooling for daughters schooling. One additional year of mothers' schooling raises daughter's schooling by a tenth of a year, which is similar to some of the previous IV-based estimates in the literature. Finally, we bring in new US twin data that for the first time allows a replication of previous twin-based estimates of the intergenerational transmission of schooling in the US. The results show no statistically significant effect of mothers' and fathers' schooling on children's schooling. Our results have implications for assessing the efficiency of policies that subsidize the schooling of men and women and are in contrast to most previous findings in the twin literature.

    The intergenerational transmission of schooling: are mothers really less important than fathers?2014Rapport (Övrigt vetenskapligt)
    Abstract [en]

    There is a “puzzle” in the literature on the intergenerational transmission of schooling, where twin studies emphasize the importance of fathers’ schooling, whereas IV-studies often emphasize the importance of mothers. We provide new evidence on this “puzzle” using register based Swedish data on the largest sample of twins used so far in the literature. In contrast to previous twin studies, our results confirm the importance of mothers’ schooling. We also provide the first twin-based evidence of role model effects, where our estimates suggest that only mother's schooling matters when allowing the effects to differ between sons and daughters. One additional year of mothers’ schooling raises daughter’s schooling by a tenth of a year, which is similar to some of the previous IV-based estimates in the literature. Finally, we bring in new US twin data that for the first time allow a replication of previous twin-based estimates of the intergenerational transmission of schooling in the US. The results show that that mothers’ and fathers’ schooling has no effect on children’s schooling in the US. Our results have implications for assessing the efficiency of policies that subsidize the schooling of men and women and are in contrast to most previous findings in the twin literature.

    Technical efficiency and productivity for higher education institutions in Sweden2017Ingår i: Scandinavian Journal of Educational Research, ISSN 0031-3831, E-ISSN 1470-1170, Vol. 61, nr 2, s. 205-223Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    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-metoden2017Rapport (Övrigt vetenskapligt)
    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 offices2014Ingår i: Socio-Economic Planning Sciences, ISSN 0038-0121, E-ISSN 1873-6041, Vol. 48, nr 1, s. 57-64Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    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.

    Hur påverkas den regionala arbetslösheten av flöden på arbetsmarknaden?: Empiriskt test av Browns jämviktsmodell2013Självständigt arbete på grundnivå (kandidatexamen), 10 poäng / 15 hpStudentuppsats (Examensarbete)
    Abstract [sv]

    Syftet med denna uppsats är att empiriskt testa Browns jämviktsmodell, genom att på regional

    nivå i huvudsak undersöka relationen mellan flöden av arbetskraft och arbetslöshet.

    Uppsatsen testar även för fler variabler för regionala karaktäristika som i tidigare litteratur

    används för att förklara regional arbetslöshet. Med hjälp av poolad regression och upprepade

    tvärsnitt erhålls varierande resultat för observationsperioden 2007-2011. Den årsvisa

    variationen i resultatet är tydlig dels genom signifikansen hos de årsvisa intercepten i

    regressionen baserad på poolad data, men också på hur koefficienter varierar i de upprepade

    tvärsnitten. Detta leder oss till slutsatsen att Browns jämviktsmodell varierar i hur väl den

    fungerar empiriskt över observationsperioden. En trolig orsak till de varierande resultaten är

    den exogena chocken, finanskrisen, som nådde Sverige år 2008.

    Immigration - Benefit or harm for native-born workers?2016Självständigt arbete på grundnivå (kandidatexamen), 10 poäng / 15 hpStudentuppsats (Examensarbete)
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of our study is to investigate the effect of immigrants on wages for natives with

    divergent skill level within one country. Skill level is measured as education level and the

    purpose is to focus on the level where it according to us is a lack in research, namely the

    effect on high skilled native-born worker wages. Further, our contribution to the already

    existing studies may be considered to be a complement. Using panel data, collected from the

    time period 2000-2008 for the 290 municipalities in Sweden to get regional variation, we

    investigate and interpret the estimated outcome of how wages for native-born workers in the

    Swedish labor market respond to immigration into Sweden. The main findings, when

    controlling for age, unemployment, and differences between year and municipalities in this

    study are on the short run, in line with the theory. The closer to a substitute the native-born

    and foreign-born workers are, the greater are the adverse effect on the wage for native-born,

    given that we assume immigrants as low skilled. The effect on wage for high skilled native

    workers in short run, when assuming immigrants and natives as complement, is positive, i.e.

    the wage for high skilled natives increases as the share of immigrants increases. The effect on

    high skilled native-born wages is positive even in mid-long run and adverse for the low and

    medium skilled native-workers. This is not an expected outcome since we according to theory

    predict the wage to be unaffected in mid-long run. This may be the result of errors in the

    assumption that immigrants are low skilled, or that five years is a too short time to see the

    expected effect in the long run; the Swedish labor market may need more time to adjust to

    what we predict the outcome to be.

    Recreational values of forests.: A case study.2015Självständigt arbete på grundnivå (kandidatexamen), 10 poäng / 15 hpStudentuppsats (Examensarbete)
    Abstract [en]

    As swedes are keen on outdoor recreation and like to spend on travels and gear for forest recreation we want to show if there is a willingness to pay for forest recreation close to home. Starting in hedonic regression we create a model using publicly available data to show how consumer preferences effect house prices. Results show that distance to forest have a small but significant impact on house prices. To conclude we state that a logarithmic model using open source data can be useful in city planning and that there is a positive effect of nearby forests on house prices.

    Ethnic enclaves, networks and self-employment among Middle Eastern immigrants in Sweden2015Ingår i: International migration (Geneva. Print), ISSN 0020-7985, E-ISSN 1468-2435, Vol. 53, nr 6, s. 27-40Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    The proportion of immigrants from countries in the Middle East living in Sweden has increased since the 1970s, and it is a well-known fact that immigrants from the Middle East suffer from low earnings and high rates of unemployment on the Swedish labour market. There are often great hopes that self-employment will enable immigrants to improve their labour market situation. Further, in Sweden as in many other countries, the question of whether the existence of ethnic enclaves are good or bad for immigrants’ earnings and employment opportunities has also been widely debated. This paper presents a study of the extent to which Middle Eastern ethnic enclaves and networks in Sweden enhance or hinder immigrants’ self-employment. The results show that the presence of ethnic enclaves increases the propensity for self-employment. Thus, immigrants in ethnic enclaves provide their co-ethnics with goods and services that Swedish natives are not able to provide. The results also show that ethnic networks seem to be an obstacle to immigrant self-employment. One explanation is that an increase in network size implies increased competition for customers among self-employed immigrants. The question of whether ethnic enclaves are good or bad for the integration of immigrants into the labour market has been widely debated. The results of this paper provide us with information about the integration puzzle. Ethnic enclaves seem to enhance self-employment propensities among Middle Eastern immigrants in Sweden.

    Older volunteers in Sweden: a welfare state in transition2014Ingår i: Active ageing: voluntary work by older people in Europe / [ed] Andrea Principi, Per H. Jensen, Giovanni Lamura, University of Chicago Press, 2014, s. 197-216Kapitel i bok, del av antologi (Övrigt vetenskapligt)
    Abstract [en]

    The main objective of this chapter is to describe the mains features of the Swedish voluntary sector and the enrolment of older people in this sector. Sweden has a large non-profit and volunteer sector. The Swedish experience shows that a large voluntary sector is compatible with a strong and universal welfare state. Since the State is strongly involved in the provision of social services and the financing of a generous and encompassing social protection system, the Swedish volunteer organisations are less active in the fields of social services. By international standard, the participation rate of older volunteers is high and Sweden offers more opportunities than restrictions for older people to be engaged in volunteer activities. In spite of a recent retrenchment of the public sector and an increase of more welfare service oriented associations, the large majority of volunteer organisations are voice organisations and less of a philanthropic nature.

    Competition and fatigue at workManuskript (preprint) (Övrigt vetenskapligt)
    Abstract [en]

    We study theoretically and experimentally the role of fatigue and recovery within a competitive work environment. At work, agents usually make their effort choice in response to competition and monetary incentives. At the same time, they have to take into account fatigue, which accumulates over time if there is insufficient recovery. We model a sequence of  work periods as tournaments that are linked through fatigue spillovers, inducing a non-time-separable decision problem. We also allow for variations in incentives in one work period, in order to analyze spillover effects to the work periods ``before'' and ``after''. Making recovery harder should, generally, reduce effort. This theoretical prediction is supported by the experimental data. A short-term increase in incentives in one period should lead to higher effort in that period, and, due to fatigue, to strategic resting before and after. Our experimental results confirm the former, and we find some evidence for the latter. Even in the presence of fatigue, total effort should positively respond to higher-powered incentives. This is not supported by our data. Removing fatigue, we find the expected increase in total effort. For work environments, this may imply that the link between monetary incentives and effort provision becomes weaker in the presence of fatigue or insufficient recovery between work periods.

    Does a short-term increase in incentives boost performance?Manuskript (preprint) (Övrigt vetenskapligt)
    Abstract [en]

    If agents are exposed to continual competitive pressure, how does a short-term variation of the severity of the competition affect agents’ performance? In a real-effort laboratory experiment, we study a one-time increase in incentives in a sequence of equally incentivized contests. Our results suggest that a short-term increase in incentives induces a behavioral response but does not boost total performance.

    Shaping the future of work in Sweden: the crucial role of social partnership2018Ingår i: Reducing inequalities in Europe: how industrial relations and labour policies can close the gap / [ed] Daniel Vaughan-Whitehead, Edward Elgar Publishing, 2018, 1, s. 519-554Kapitel i bok, del av antologi (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    One of the basic elements of the Swedish model is a strong contractual tradition and the crucial role played by the social partners in mechanisms for regulating labour market, working conditions and wage formation. The bipartite and contractual nature of labour market regulations coupled with the high union density and high coverage rate of collective bargaining create a favourable institutional environment for the emergence of negotiated compromises aimed at balancing flexibility and security in the labour market. Sweden constitutes, therefore, a good illustration of a flexicurity regime based on negotiated flexibility and largely explains why Sweden remains a country with decent working conditions, low income disparities and extended social justice. A compressed wage structure with relatively high wage floors have also prevented the development of low-skilled jobs in Sweden and instead have boosted policies favouring skill upgrading. In effect, large investment in research and development, a well-developed lifelong learning as well as a more balanced bargaining power between the two sides of industry have limited the tendency towards job and class polarisation in Sweden.

    Abstract [en]

    Despite substantial transformations during the past two decades, the Swedish social model (SSM) still shares many of the distinctive features, principles and core values of the European Social Model (ESM). In fact, we may argue that the SSM illustrates the resilience and long-term viability of the ESM through its continuing attachment to a universal and generous social protection system, egalitarianism, proactive policies for promoting gender equality and fighting against discrimination and social exclusion, social dialogue as a mechanism for regulating the labour market and social policies, and strong public and political involvement in the provision of a wide range of public services in areas such as utilities, education, health and social care.

    The Swedish welfare state in times of crisis: resilience and success2014Ingår i: Economia & Lavoro, ISSN 0012-978X, Vol. XLVIII, nr 2, s. 9-30Artikel i tidskrift (Övrigt vetenskapligt)
    Abstract [en]

    The main objective of this article is twofold: Firstly, to identify the major transformations of the Swedish Welfare State focusing principally on the structural reforms initiated during the last two decades and their impact on economic development, the distribution of social welfare and on income inequalities. Secondly, to explore the role of the Swedish Welfare State in mitigating the negative impact of the 2008 Great Recession. The early fiscal consolidation measures and the structural reforms undertaken since the second half of the 1990s have without doubt contributed to securing the long-term sustainability of the Swedish social protection system and fostering more healthy public finances.  However, the  “Swedish success story” during the last recession cannot only be reduced to early fiscal consolidation measures and structural reforms. It is clear that the automatic stabilisers embedded in the Swedish Welfare State, the counter-cyclical macroeconomic policy conducted by the Swedish government and a developed social dialogue have all contributed to alleviating the negative impacts of the 2008-crisis on employment, welfare and social exclusion. The Swedish experience illustrates above all the resilience, the long-term viability and the success of a societal model based on an universal and generous social protection system, egalitarianism, pro-active policies for promoting gender equality and fighting against social exclusion, and a strong public and political involvement in the provision of a wide range of services.

    Why write a chapter on working time when Gerhard Bosch and I have been for a long time gently arguing and quarrelling over the overall efficiency of a general reduction of working time and its potential impact on unemployment? Well, because in spite of our minor academic controversy, time has not eroded our friendship, our mutual esteem, or our 20 year-long scientific collaboration.

    Upskilling to avoid jobs’ polarisation and growing income inequalities: the Swedish experience2016Ingår i: Economia & Lavoro, ISSN 0012-978X, Vol. 50, nr 2, s. 13-24Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Taking a broad historical perspective, this article analyses the development of the Swedish class structure. During the last decades, Sweden experienced a relative decrease in its middle class and a stronger polarisation of its class structure. Three potential factors can explain this development: changes in labour market behaviour, a reduction of the extent of decommodification of the Swedish welfare state and large structural changes in employment and occupational structure. We show that the long-term tendency towards an upgrading of occupational structure in Sweden has benefitted the upper middle class and the top-income group. Indeed, the large investment in research and development, the expansion of education and the increase in the demand of high-skilled jobs have limited the tendency towards job polarisation found in liberal market-orientated welfare states. Weakly linked to the modifications in the skill structure, the decrease of the middle class appears to be better explained by the postponement of entry into the labour market related to the expansion of education and by social protection reforms that negatively affected the disposable income of vulnerable groups.

    Work and care regime and women's employment outcomes: Australia, France and Sweden compared2017Ingår i: Making work more equal: a new labour market segmentation approach / [ed] Damina Grimshaw, Colette Fagan, Gail Hebson & Isabel Tavora, Manchester: Manchester University Press, 2017, 1, s. 309-329Kapitel i bok, del av antologi (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Using a gender perspective and a comparative approach, this paper assesses the extent to which national care regimes and family policies interact and impact upon female employment outcomes. We restrict our analysis to Australia, France and Sweden, three advanced market economies with contrasting employment and care regimes. For the employment regime we focus on paid work across the life course and we focus on parental leave and childcare as indicative of the care regime.  Previous comparative studies have clearly shown that the gender division of labour between paid work, care and domestic activities is strongly dependent on prevailing societal norms and the institutional and societal context, in particular the characteristics of the parental leave systems, the availability and cost of childcare services, the provision of care when older people become partially or fully dependent, and more globally on employment and working time regimes and the design of tax and family policies. Our central argument is therefore that family and care policies play a crucial role in shaping the patterns of men’s and women’s employment. The comparison shows the importance of institutional arrangements and that lack of affordable child care facilities and poor parental leave arrangements across the life course reduce female, particularly maternal, labour supply both in terms of labour force participation and working time participation.

    Bogus-self-employment in Sweden2019Ingår i: Self-Employment as precarious work: a European perspective / [ed] Wieteke Conen & Joop Schippers, Cheltenham, UK: Edward Elgar Publishing, 2019, s. 153-169Kapitel i bok, del av antologi (Övrigt vetenskapligt)
    Abstract [en]

    This chapter analyses to what extent bogus self-employment is prevalent in Sweden and identifies institutional and economic factors that may explain its magnitude and development. Drawing on the last wave of the European Working Conditions Survey and using standard econometric techniques we analyse the prevalence of bogus self-employed in the EU-28 and Nordic countries and examine main differences between self-employment and bogus self-employment. We find that Sweden displays a lower incidence of bogus self-employed compared to other EU member states. Bogus self-employment appears to be more prevalent in certain segments of the labour market, in particular in industries such as construction, transport and personal household services. The specificity of the industrial relations system in Sweden, with strong social partners, high union density and coverage rate of collective agreements in all sectors of the economy, may explain the limited development of bogus self-employment and relatively low incidence compared to other member states.

    Self-employment and parental leave2015Ingår i: Small Business Economics, ISSN 0921-898X, E-ISSN 1573-0913, Vol. 45, nr 4, s. 751-770Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    The main objective of this paper is to analyse the extent to which employment status impacts upon the use of parental leave in Sweden. Our results show that during the child’s first two years of life Swedish female self-employees use on average 46 fewer days in parental leave (15 percent) than female wage earners, while male self-employees use on average 27 fewer days in parental leave (71 percent) than their wage earner counterparts.  We argue that the shorter average duration of parental leave among male self-employees is due to a combination of relatively higher costs of absence from work for self-employees compared to wage earners and a participation selection effect where some individuals with high performance-related income opt for self-employment and do not take parental leave at all, and where the self-employed who actually choose to take parental leave are similar to wage earners in terms of work-commitments and consequently reduces the difference in duration between self-employed and wage earners. On the other hand, given that all mothers, self-employees or wage earners, take parental leave, we do not find a participation effect among female self-employees. Instead, we suspect that there is an employment selection effect where women with high performance related income choose self-employment and consequently contributes to the shorter observed durations of parental leave for female self-employees.

    Beyond retirement: who stays at work after the standard age of retirement?2019Ingår i: International journal of manpower, ISSN 0143-7720, E-ISSN 1758-6577, Vol. 40, nr 5, s. 917-938Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Purpose Drawing on a unique combination of longitudinal administrative data and a postal survey, the purpose of this paper is to identify the socio-economic factors and individual characteristics that affect senior citizens' decision to continue working on the Swedish labour market after the standard retirement age. Design/methodology/approach By using standard econometric techniques (multinomial logit model) on a large representative sample of 20,000 senior citizens residing in Sweden, the auhtors analyse the extent to which socio-economic factors and individual characteristics including personality traits affect the decision of senior citizens to delay retirement and to continue working after the standard retirement age. Findings The results of our estimations show clearly that good health, high educational attainment/high-skilled jobs, good psychosocial work environment, employment status (to be self-employed), personality traits (extraversion, openness to experience and conscientiousness) as well as industrial sectors (agriculture, healthcare and transport) are strong predictors of the continuation of work after the standard retirement age (65 years old). Originality/value To the best of the authors' knowledge, the paper is the first attempt in Sweden to analyse jointly a large range of factors influencing the decision to remain in the labour force after the standard/normal pension age, including psychosocial working conditions and personality traits.

    Dagens generation av svenskar i åldersgruppen 65–74 år har en högre sysselsättningsgrad än tidigare generationer. I den här artikeln analyseras seniorernas motiv till att fortsätta att arbeta och varför andra går i pension, med fokus på vilka socioekonomiska faktorer som påverkar beslutet att fortsätta arbeta efter 65. Vi undersöker även om det finns vissa personlighets- och karaktärsdrag som utmärker de arbetande seniorerna, samt om det finns ett samband mellan arbete efter 65 och den allmänna tillfredsställelsen med livet.

    To stay or not to stay. That is the question: beyond retirement: Stayers on the labour market2017Rapport (Övrigt vetenskapligt)
    Abstract [en]

    The research project addresses three main questions: Who are the persons that continue to work after “normal” retirement age? What are their motivations? What are the consequences for the individual and for society? To answer these questions we perform an analysis of external and internal factors affecting the choice to stay after 65 years on the labour market or to leave earlier. Among external factors we investigate are: The impact of the prevailing labour laws and regulations on senior citizens’ participation on the labour market ; The socio-economic factors that affect the likelihood to stay on the labour market after the age of 65 ; The impact of employers’ human resource strategies on the possibility for senior workers to remain on the labour market after the age of 65 years. We also analyse the the role of individ specific factors such as motivation and , personal traits but the outcome in terms of subjective well-being and health.

    Undervärderade effekter av ett längre arbetsliv i Europa2013Ingår i: Europapolitisk analys, Vol. 4Artikel i tidskrift (Övrigt vetenskapligt)
    Abstract [sv]

    Under de senaste 40 åren har sysselsättningsgraden för åldersgruppen 55-64 år utvecklats likartat

    i Danmark, Frankrike, Italien, Nederländerna, Polen, Storbritannien, Sverige och Tyskland. En

    minskning har skett fram till mitten av 1990-talet och därefter en ökning. Gemensamt för dessa

    åtta länder är även att de högutbildade lämnar arbetskraften vid i genomsnitt högre åldrar än de

    lågutbildade och att alternativa anställningsformer (tillfälliga anställningar, egenföretagande, deltidsarbete)

    är vanligare i högre åldrar. Å andra sidan finns det avsevärda skillnader mellan länderna

    när det gäller såväl nuvarande sysselsättningsgrad för äldre och kvinnor som förekomsten av egenföretagande

    och deltidsanställning bland äldre.

    Syftet med den här analysen är att belysa den övergripande utvecklingen och den aktuella situationen

    för arbetstagare mellan 50 och 74 år i de åtta länderna. Den sammanfattar också villkoren för

    den äldre arbetskraften och diskuterar hur nationell politik bör anpassas till ett förlängt arbetsliv.

    Dessutom presenteras statistik och tidigare studier om de äldres sysselsättning och välfärd.

    Metoder för att utvärdera sysselsättningskrav vid offentlig upphandling - en översikt2017Rapport (Övrigt vetenskapligt)
    Abstract [sv]

    Under den senaste tiden har sociala hänsyn vid offentlig upphandling blivit allt vanligare. En specifik form av sociala hänsyn vid offentlig upphandling är sysselsättningskrav där upphandlande myndigheter ställer specifika krav på att företagen ska anställa individer som står långt från arbetsmarknaden, exempelvis långtidsarbetslösa, lågutbildade och arbetslösa ungdomar m.m.

    I Sverige framstår sysselsättningskravet främst som ett komplement till arbetsmark-nadspolitiken där Arbetsförmedlingen eller kommunala arbetsförmedlare har en central roll för att fördela anställningsstöd till långtidsarbetslösa. Sysselsättnings-kravets påverkan på sysselsättningsgrad och arbetslöshet för hela arbetsmarknaden är osäker. Även om det i efterhand kan konstateras att ett visst antal personer ur målgruppen har anställts inom ramarna för upphandlingen, och sysselsättnings-kravet därmed är uppfyllt, kan sysselsättningen på den lokala arbetsmarknaden både öka eller minska, på grund av direkta och indirekta effekter på företagens rekryteringsbeteende, andra företag i regionen och individuella incitament att söka jobb. Det ställs därför relativt stora krav på en utvärdering för att kunna svara på frågan hur sysselsättningskravet påverkar sysselsättningen på arbetsmarknaden.

    Sysselsättningskravets syfte, målsättning och målgrupp bör anges i början av upphandlingsprojektet. Dessutom bör det explicit anges vilken anställningsform som avses (anställningskontrakt, arbetstid, anställningens längd). En utvärdering bör inkludera en jämförelsegrupp av utförande företag med anställda som inte omfattas av sysselsättningskrav vid upphandlingen. Det är endast genom att jämföra utfallet mellan de två grupperna (behandlingsgruppen och kontroll-gruppen) som det går att uttala sig om sysselsättningskravets inverkan på sysselsättningen och arbetslösheten i regionen. En utvärdering bör involveras i planeringsstadiet av ett upphandlingsprojekt med sysselsättningskrav. Behovet av insamling av data under projektet är omfattande och upphandlingens organisation, syfte och målsättning bör vara tydlig för alla parter. En tänkbar modell är att den upphandlande myndigheten ger en extern utvärderingskonsult i uppdrag att följa upphandlingen och genomföra utvärderingen som en integrerad del av projektet. Det kan etableras allmänna riktlinjer och erfarenheter för hur en utvärdering ska genomföras, där utvärderingskonsulten har en viktig roll i att förmedla dessa erfarenheter. Samtidigt måste utvärderingskonsulten vara lyhörd för särskilda omständigheter och villkor i den aktuella utvärderingen. Utvärderingen kan alltså inte följa en fast modell, eftersom det finns en uppenbar risk att utvärderingen då enbart upplevs som en administrativ börda utan egentlig nytta för de inblandade parterna. Uppföljningar av upphandlingen bör ske inom en relativt kort tidshori-sont, för att kartlägga eventuella förbättringsåtgärder i samarbetet mellan de tre parterna. För att kartlägga upphandlingens effekter på sysselsättningen krävs dock en längre tidshorisont där arbetstagare och arbetsgivare kan följas under en längre tid efter att upphandling har genomförts.

    Impact of late and prolonged working life on subjective health: the Swedish experience2019Ingår i: European Journal of Health Economics, ISSN 1618-7598, E-ISSN 1618-7601, Vol. 20, nr 3, s. 389-405Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper explores the relationship between the prolongation of working life and subjective health. Drawing on a unique combination of longitudinal data and the results of a postal survey in Sweden, we investigate the health consequences of extending working life beyond the normal retirement age of 65. To do this, we compare the health status of two groups of retired people: one group who left the labour market completely at the age of 65, and a second group who remained in employment after the age of 65. Using a standard linear probability model and controlling for a range of socio-economic variables as well as previous labour market experiences, perceived life expectancy, pre-retirement income and health, our estimations show that those continuing to work after 65 on average display a 6.8% higher probability of reporting better health during retirement than those leaving at the age of 65. However, we find that this positive correlation between the extension of working life and health is only transitory. After 6 years of retirement, the health advantage of working after the normal retirement age disappears. Furthermore, we did not find any evidence that working after the age of 65 is positively correlated with physical fitness, self-reported depressive symptoms or well-being.

    Working time and work–life balance in a life course perspective: a report based on the fifth European Working Conditions Survey2013Rapport (Övrigt vetenskapligt)
    Abstract [sv]

    Understanding how working time is organised and how this is impacting on balance of work versus private life is of fundamental importance. This general statement is very much in accordance with the main objective of the Europe 2020 employment strategy, stating that at least 75% of the population aged 20–64 should be employed by 2020, necessitating in many Member States a significant increase in women’s labour market participation. Drawing on data from Eurofound’s fifth European Working Conditions Survey (EWCS), based on interviews with more than 38,000 respondents in 34 countries, this report documents the prevailing working time patterns of employees, the self-employed and lone parents across five country clusters. It also analyses the relationship between paid employment and domestic activities, work–life balance and working time preferences across the life course.

    Working time distribution and preferences across the life course: a European Perspective2013Ingår i: Economia & Lavoro, ISSN 0012-978X, Vol. XLVII, nr 2, s. 77-106Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    The main objective of this paper is to identify and explain cross-country gender disparities in working time distribution and working time preferences in seven eu-member states (France, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, Poland and the UK). The selection ofhese countries has been essentially guided by the fact that they differ considerably in terms of welfare state regime, employment and industrial relation systems, family policies, and gender contract. Our selected European countries still display a high gender polarization of working time and the current gendered working time distribution reflects the resilience of a traditional gender contract. Regarding working time preferences a majority of wage earners seem to be satisfied with their current working time. However, around 45 per cent of dependent employees indicate that they would like to change their current working time, and most of them express a preference for a reduction of working time. Our results also show that male and female employees in our selected countries aspire to some convergence of working time, female employees expressing on average a wish of increasing their working time and men a wish of decreasing working time. Beyond measures favouring a more balanced gender division of labour, our study tends also to show the need of implementing family-friendly, flexible and reversible working time options across the life course. Finally, our results show that the current eu working time directive is not always successful in limiting excessive working time.

    Kunskapssammanställning: Sambandet mellan arbetsmiljö och beslutet att lämna arbetskraften2014Rapport (Refereegranskat)
    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.

    Access to Information and Retirement Decision: The Swedish case: Who are well-informed and did the information affect their retirement plans?2019Självständigt arbete på grundnivå (kandidatexamen), 10 poäng / 15 hpStudentuppsats (Examensarbete)
    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of this study was to examine the role of information and its impact on the retirement decision. Two aspects of information were examined; the first displays the characteristics which informed individuals, and the second shows how certain information affected their decision to leave the labour market or to continue working after the age of 65. Our results confirm that being male and having a higher average labour income increases the probability of being well-informed about the pension system. Conversely, being a female, having a lower education or few skills, suffering from poor health, working in the public sector and being self-employed all have a negative impact on the likelihood of being well-informed. In regards to the effect of information on the retirement decision, the empirical results show us that a majority of the well-informed individuals will leave the labour market before the retirement age of 65. Generally speaking, those who remain employed will not take information into account when it comes to retirement planning, since majority of them have other motives than pure economic considerations.

    Income inequality in sweden pre and post the 1990's bank crisis2013Självständigt arbete på grundnivå (kandidatexamen), 10 poäng / 15 hpStudentuppsats (Examensarbete)
    Abstract [en]

    INCOME INEQUALITY IN SWEDEN PRE AND POST THE 1990’S BANK CRISIS The aim of this thesis is to see if Sweden has had an increasing income inequality during the financial crisis in the 1990’s. The economy was in a deep recession after the booming years in the late 1980’s. A recession in Sweden’s case meant that the labourmarket was severely hit;the unemployment rate rose and income inequality as a result of this is expected to have increased. The main focus will be on the effect of income inequality between man and women as well as between natives and foreigners. Have these groups been effected by the crisis? If so, what may be the reason?Was it purely due to the crisis or was it due to other factors? The result showed that the income gap between men and women actually decreased during the financial crisis while on the other hand it increased between natives and foreigners.

    Nonlinear and piecewise linear income taxation, and the subsidization of work-related goods2019Ingår i: International Tax and Public Finance, ISSN 0927-5940, E-ISSN 1573-6970, Vol. 26, nr 4, s. 806-834Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    We investigate how the social welfare gain of subsidizing work-related goods depends on whether the underlying income tax system is linear, piecewise linear or fully nonlinear, focusing on child care services as a paradigmatic example of goods/services that are complements with labor supply. Our quantitative analysis employs an empirically relevant labor supply model and shows that the welfare gain of an optimally chosen subsidy is negligible when the optimal income tax is restricted to be linear but about the same as under fully nonlinear taxation when the optimal income tax is restricted to be piecewise linear. Our findings enhance the policy relevance of the optimal tax argument in favor of providing subsidies to work-related goods and also shed light on the relative welfare gains of employing piecewise linear rather than fully nonlinear income taxes.

    Optimal commodity taxation with varying quality of goods2016Ingår i: Research in Economics, ISSN 1090-9443, E-ISSN 1090-9451, Vol. 70, nr 1, s. 89-100Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    A standard result in the optimal taxation literature is that when agents differ in market ability and the government aims at redistributing from high- to low-skilled agents by means of an optimal nonlinear labor income tax and a set of commodity taxes, an optimally designed commodity tax structure should encourage (discourage) the consumption of goods/services that are complement with labor (leisure). In this paper we highlight that when agents can choose both the quality and the quantity of a given good/service, this standard commodity tax result needs to be qualified. First, we show that it becomes relevant to distinguish between specific and ad valorem taxes/subsidies. Second, whether the standard result holds or not depends on how the concept of labor (leisure) complement is defined, namely, whether it is defined in terms of number of units or in terms of expenditure. We also show that levying specific and ad valorem taxes at opposite signs on a given good can be a feature of the second-best optimum.
