Abstract [en]

In the last years immigration and its effect on Sweden in terms of labour markets has been a heated topic. At the same time there have been alarming reports of how there are severe shortages in health care and education. The purpose of this paper is to investigate the potential impact an immigration influx has on health care and education in terms of wages and employment in the Swedish less densely populated areas.  This paper makes use of Swedish municipality panel data for the years 2010-2015 and applies an IV regression. The previous immigrants settlement has been used as an instrument for immigrants’ choice of where to live. The results from the empirics show that an influx of immigration leads to a higher employment and wage rate in the public sectors chosen.
