Structural Change, Competition and Job Turnover in the Swedish Manufacturing Industry 1964-96

Lars Lundberg, Linda Andersson and Ola Gustafsson

Abstract: The rate of inter-industry job turnover in Swedish manufacturing seems to be driven by the dispersion of profit changes among industries. Shifts in international competitiveness among industries played a central role for explaining this pattern. The rate of intra-industry job turnover among plants has been higher in industries with many small plants, low profit margins and high import penetration.
