Working life

Research on labour and working life is a long-standing tradition at the Institute for Social Research.

While the labour market is constantly changing, the goal of the ISF’s labour market research is constant: to contribute high-level empirical research to topics of societal relevance. Our research uses both qualitative and quantitative methods.

Labour market research at the ISF is wide-ranging, including topics such as employment, gender equality and discrimination, diversity in the labour market, sickness absence, and pay differences. In recent years we have also researched issues related to education, welfare, and migration in a labour market perspective. Although a large part of the research is performed on administrative register data, we also use survey data and, more recently, field tests.
