Abstract [en]

The aim of this paper is to analyse labour turnover in retailfirms with stores in different city locations. This case study of a Swedish mid-sized city uses comprehensive longitudinal register data on individuals. In a first step, an unconditional descriptive analysis shows that labour turnover in retail is higher in out-of-town locations, compared to more central locations in the city. In a second step, a generalized linear model (GLM) analysis is conducted where labour turnover in downtown and out-of-town locations are compared. Firm internal and industry factors, as well as employee characteristics, and location-specific factors are controlled for. The results indicate that commuting costs and intra-urban location have no statistically significant effect on labour turnover in retail firms. Instead, firm internal factors, such as human resource management, has a major influence on labour turnover rates. The findings indicate that in particular firms with multiple locations may need to pay extra attention to work conditions across stores in different places in a city, in order to avoid diverging levels of labour mobility. This paper complements previous survey-based studies on labour turn-over by using a comprehensive micro-level dataset to analyse revealed rather than stated preferences concerning job-to-job mobility. An elaborated measure of labour turnover is used to analyse differences between shopping areas in different locations within the city. The particular research design used in this papermakes it possible to isolate the effect of intra-organizational conditions by analysing mobility within firms with workplaces in both downtown and out-of-town locations. This is the first comprehensive study of labour turnover and mobility with an intra-urban perspective in the retail sector.

Abstract [en]

The 1950s to the mid1970s marks the final phase of urbanization in Sweden and full implementation of the Social democratic welfare state. It’s a period of prosperity in which the industries and their workforce are celebrated and provide models and standards also for other wakes of society and life.

In the year 1956 cinema going peaked in Sweden! Seven years later the number of cinema tickets sold had cut back by half and continued to dwindle. Is television to be blamed?

For the rural and industrial region of Bergslagen we will present a cinema location analysis that identifies the venues that persisted with film exhibition 1956-76. The map is layered with data on population density, ownership of television sets, entertainment hubs and transportation routes. An analysis will address the hypothesis (1) that cinema more or less perished in rural areas (2) as a result of the dissemination of television. We seek to complicate the history of rural cinema by exploring social, cultural and geographical relations in the region. The result is an attempt at writing rural industrial history taking leisure as a point of departure, rather than the more established practice of organizing the historical narrative around “work”.

Abstract [sv]

Kan en gammal industriregion som Bergslagen kan byta inriktning när det gäller näringsliv och arbete, och är det möjligt att vända den negativa befolknings­utvecklingen? Vilka tecken på förnyelse och förändring i Bergslagens orter kan skönjas när det gäller företagande och sysselsättning, befolkningsunderlag och service? Kommer det överhuvudtaget att vara meningsfullt att tala om Bergslagen som sammanhängande region år 2050?

Denna studie inom projektet Brytpunkt Bergslagen bygger på en statistisk analys av ett 30-tal utvalda orter i Bergslagen, varav ett tiotal ingår i Bergslagssatsningen – Kultur och Turism. Vi följer utvecklingen i dessa orter från tidigt 1990-tal fram till år 2008, och avsikten är att senare kunna följa upp utvecklingen när Bergslagssatsningen avslutas omkring 2017.

Studien visar att företa­gandet ökar i betydelse, något som bryter mot tidigare bilder av Bergslagen. Kultur- och turism­näringarna växer i Bergslagsregionen, men de svarar för en liten del av sysselsättningen. Tillgången till olika former av service har förändrats. Antalet livsmedelsbutiker har minskat, liksom förskolor, grundskolor och sjukvårdsenheter. Samtidigt har antalet hotell och restauranger har ökat. Det är frestande att dra slutsatsen ”det går att allt bättre att besöka Bergslagen, men det går inte att stanna kvar”.

Abstract [en]

The article examines new firm formation in the old industrial region (OIR) of Bergslagen in Sweden, and in particular the role of in-migrants. The study is based on longitudinal georeferenced microdata (1993–2008) compiled by Statistics Sweden and providing information on individuals' attachments to the Swedish labour market, as well as workplaces and firms, education, income, and family composition. This specially commissioned database enabled the characterization and analysis of emerging forms of entrepreneurship and self-employment, as well as the socio-economics of the labour market. The longitudinal data allowed the authors to trace actions taken by individuals over time. The results indicate that new firm formation is related to private services, rather than to the traditional manufacturing sector and public services that currently dominate the regional labour market. Self-employed in-migrants are active in other sectors than non-migrants, and show some distinct features in terms of their lower age, better education, and more often non-Nordic background. The study showed that both in-migration and return migration had a positive, significant, and substantial effect on migrants' decision to start a business when a number of other individual characteristics had been controlled for.

Abstract [en]

This paper analyses the importance of tourism employment for in-migration to Malung/Sälen and Älvdalen, two rural municipalities hosting two major tourist destinations in the southern Swedish mountains. It uses micro-data from a database that includes, among many other variables, residence and employment information. This work is explorative and uses longitudinal data that permit examining individuals and go beyond simple net employment figures to show that many in-migrants to these municipalities are employed in tourism and constitute part of what is defined as the “creative workforce” in the local labour market. In this sense, tourism employment is found to be a pull factor for in-migration of highly skilled and well-paid people.

Abstract [en]

This paper explores whether the concept of counterurbanisation, expanded with an international dimension, offers a valuable framework for understanding recent migration flows from the Netherlands to Sweden. Using a geo-referenced database comprising demographic and socio-economic variables, the post-migration employment status, employment sector and settlement location of Dutch migrants in Central Sweden are analysed. In addition, results from observation, interviews and a survey during emigration fairs are employed to describe the motives for migration from the Netherlands to Central Sweden. We argue that counterurbanisation is not an exhausted research topic, when international political, economic and socio-cultural factors are added to the study.
