The importance of education for the reallocation of labor. Evidence from Swedish linked employer-employee data 1986-2002
(), Ann-Christin Jans
() and Helena Persson
Abstract: Using employer-employee data covering the whole Swedish
economy over a uniquely long time period from 1986 to 2002, we examine how
job flows and worker flows have been distributed both on an aggregate level
and across educational levels. We find that job and worker flows vary by
educational level, not only with respect to magnitude and variation, but
with respect to direction as well. Our results show that analyses that do
not account for the educational level of workers can be very misleading.
