Research project High unemployment rates and burnout due to high work load are two big public health problems in Sweden
Research clearly shows a worsened health for the unemployed and long-term negative health consequences for unemployed youth. During the latest decades, the unemployment in Sweden has doubled. At the same time the health situation for the employed has also worsened.
