Seminar in IceLab: Florian Heyder and Swedish labor market diversity
March 16, 2022 @ 14:30 - 15:30
Florian Heyder, PhD student at Technische Universität Ilmenau in Germany, is currently visiting IceLab. He is working with Ludvig Lizana (IceLab Associate Professor) and Rikard Eriksson (Professor of Economic Geography), following up on a project he carried out with both at IceLab in 2019. At this seminar, Florian will present research from this project, discussing diversity in the Swedish labor market from 1960 to 2015.
The Swedish labor market can be divided into 70 labor regions. The workforce of these regions is comprised of individuals from all over Sweden, as well as people from foreign countries. The diversity of this composition is often referenced as a source of population growth as well as a driver for the economy. We analyze data on the Swedish labor market during the years 1960 to 2015 in order to quantify the diversity for each the regions. Furthermore, preliminary simulations on hypothetical labor market scenarios are presented.
How to attend?
The seminar will take place in IceLab’s open meeting area and through the IceLab zoom room (fysik icelab).
