Abstract

The structural changes in the duration of unemployment in Sweden during the period 1965-1976 are analyzed in this paper. Thanks to recent working-up of the Labor Force Surveys in Sweden, it has been possible to analyze the duration of unemployment in terms of quarterly survival rates. An econometric test of the structural changes in the survival rates reveals that extensions of the unemployment benefit system in 1968 and 1974 have not contributed to the rising survival rates, at least not to any great extent. Furthermore, the composition of the inflow of unemployment in terms of demographic groups has been rather stable during the period, which indicates that the structural changes have had equal effects on all four of the groups considered.
