Research on labour and working life is a long-standing tradition at the Institute for Social Research.
At the Institute for Social Research, there is a long-standing tradition of research on labour and working life. The overarching goal is to produce high-quality empirical research on topics of relevance to society. Both quantitative and qualitative analyses are conducted. The quantitative research focuses on the behaviour of individuals and companies.
In recent years, we have expanded our research to include topics related to education, welfare and migration. All of these new topics are thematically linked to the labour market.
Much of the research is conducted on administrative register data, but we also utilise survey data and, in recent years, we have also field experiments in our research on working life.
