Abstract: In this paper, Bayesian VAR models are used to forecast employment growth in Sweden. Using quarterly data from 1996 to 2015, we conduct an out-of-sample forecast exercise. Results indicate that the forecasting performance at short horizons can be improved when survey data is included, such as employment expectations in the business sector and forward-looking variables from the trade sector.
