Project description

This project is a follow-up of previous projects for the Ministry of Labour and Local Government. We have developed a database with records of monthly labour market status for the whole Norwegian population (The Frisch database). The database is used for econometric analyses of transitions between different states in the labour market, such as employment, unemployment, training, retirement and disability (see also project 1203).
