    Does more general education reduce the risk of future unemployment?: Evidence from an expansion of vocational upper secondary education2016In: Economics of Education Review, ISSN 0272-7757, E-ISSN 1873-7382, Vol. 52, p. 251-271Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper investigates whether acquiring more general education reduces the risk of future unemployment. I study an educational reform in Sweden which prolonged the vocational programs in upper secondary school and gave them a considerably larger general content. The research design exploits variation across regions and over time in the implementation of a large-scale pilot which preceded the reform. I examine the students' labor market experiences during the 2008-2010 recession, at which time they had reached their late 30 s. I find no evidence that having attended a longer and more general program reduced the risk of experiencing unemployment. Among students with low GPAs from compulsory school, attending a pilot program seems instead to have led to an increased risk of unemployment. This pattern is strongest among male students and the effect is likely to be explained by the increased dropout rate which resulted from the change of the programs.

    The Effects of Reducing Tracking in Upper Secondary School Evidence from a Large-Scale Pilot Scheme2012In: The Journal of human resources, ISSN 0022-166X, E-ISSN 1548-8004, Vol. 47, no 1, p. 237-269Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    By exploiting an extensive pilot scheme that preceded an educational reform, this paper evaluates the effects of introducing a more comprehensive upper secondary school system in Sweden. The reform reduced the differences between academic and vocational tracks through prolonging and increasing the academic content of the latter As a result, all vocational students became eligible for university studies. The results suggest that the policy change increased the amount of upper secondary schooling obtained among vocational students, but did not affect enrollment in university studies or students earnings later in life.

    Moral hazard among the sick and unemployed: evidence from a Swedish social insurance reform2007Report (Other scientific)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper looks at a specific type of moral hazard that arises in the interplay between two large public insurance systems in Sweden, namely the sickness insurance (SI) and the unemployment insurance (UI). Moral hazard can arise from the benefit size structure as for some unemployed persons, benefits from the SI are higher than benefits from the UI. We use a reform of the SI system that came in force 1 July, 2003, to identify the effect of economic incentives arising from the different benefit sizes. Our results from a duration analysis show clearly that the higher the benefits, the larger the probability of reporting sick.

    Illness-related absence among preschool children: Insights from a health intervention in Swedish preschools2017In: Journal of Health Economics, ISSN 0167-6296, E-ISSN 1879-1646, Vol. 56, p. 191-200Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    We evaluate the effect of a preschool health intervention aimed at reducing infections through improved hygiene practices and training of the staff. The large-scale design enables us to study heterogeneous effects with respect to several child and preschool characteristics that are related to the level of illness-related absence. We find no reduction, on average, in children's illness-related absence. This conclusion holds across different age groups of preschool children, and for preschools with varying levels of absence before the intervention. We find some suggestive evidence that the intervention may have induced effects operating in different directions: while improved hygiene practices may have reduced illness, stricter guidelines regarding absence during infections seems to have contributed to an increased absence level, resulting in an overall zero effect. Overall, our results suggest that reducing absence through improved hygiene practices is not easily accomplished in a child care setting. (c) 2017 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.

    Education and criminal behavior: Insights from an expansion of upper secondary school2018In: Labour Economics, ISSN 0927-5371, E-ISSN 1879-1034, Vol. 52, p. 178-192Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    We study the impact on long and short run criminal behavior from a large scale Swedish reform of vocational upper secondary education, extending programs and adding more general theoretical content. The reform directly concerns age groups where criminal activity is high and individuals who are overrepresented among criminal offenders. Using detailed administrative data we show that the reform led to a reduction in property crime, but no significant decrease in violent crime. The effect is mainly concentrated to the third year after enrollment, which suggests that being in school reduces the opportunities and/or inclinations to commit crime.
