Completed project

Convergence or segregation?

Regional imbalances and labormarket flows.

Project period 2012 - 2015
Project employer The Research Council of Norway
Project nr. 410.098

The goal of the project is to increase the understanding of how economic differences between regions influence labor flows and how labor flows contribute to convergence and/or divergence between regions as well as improve individual outcomes. 

Further we want to analyse how mobility contributes to economic growth, and to study how local labor markets/economic regions respond to labor demand shocks. Empirical analyses will be undertaken using register data.
