Abstract [en]

A key determinant of the unemployment rate variation is the rate at which workers enter and exit the unemployment. In this paper, I examine the Swedish flow rates and specifically the heterogeneity in these flow rates across worker groups for 1992 to 2016. Using data from the Swedish Public Employment Agency I am able to show that while the aggregated inflow and outflow rate on an average level are of equal importance for the Swedish unemployment rate variations, there is a substantial variety in the relative importance of the two flow rates, both over time and across worker groups. Further, controlling for compositional changes when estimating the flow rates I am able to estimate the effect of changes in the heterogeneity for the unemployment rate. Such estimation stresses the rather small effect of compositional changes; with exception for the change of region of origin that have increased the unemployment rate with approximately 20 percent.
