Abstract [en]

The objective of this paper is to analyze effects on firm-level relative demand for skilled labor due to imports of intermediates (offshoring) and exports of intermediates (inshoring). The study is based on a dataset of Swedish manufacturing firms, 1997-2002, using actual trade flows in intermediate goods and services, respectively. Descriptive data show that goods inshoring is much larger than goods offshoring, while the reverse is true for services. There is however a strong increase in services inshoring over the study period. Controlling for potential endogeneity due to high-performing firms self selecting into offshoring and inshoring, our results indicate that there is a positive effect of services offshoring while inshoring has no significant effect on the skill composition of workers in Swedish firms.
