Gender differences in occupational- and sectoral labour mobility in Norway
The purpose of the project is to examine the degree of gender segregation in the Norwegian labour market since the beginning of the 1990s.
The project is fourfold: First, to map and examine trends in labour mobility between occupations, industries and sectors, and to identify occupations and educations with high turnover.
Secondly, to quantify and get insight into the contribution from i) changes in labour demand and ii) labour supply.
Thirdly, the project will shed light on trends in gender segregations over the lifecycle.
Fourth, map and systematize scientific research in Europe, focusing on the Nordic countries.
In addition we will perform comparative empirical analysis on the labour mobility patterns in Europe. The main contribution of this project is to measure developments in gender segregation in the labour market and in the educational sector, over a long period of time. To our knowledge, the latter exercise for the first time.
