Hi, my name is Johan Holmberg and I am working as a PhD student at Umeå School of Business, Economics and Statistics. My research is primarily within labor economics, public finance and applied econometrics. 

CV

Current reseach projects:

"Earning dynamics in Sweden: The recent evolution of permanent inequality and earnings volatility" 

This is a collaboration with Johan Gustafsson. Current status: Working paper. 

This was financed by Jan Wallanders och Tom Hedelius Stiftelse, Handelsbanken.

This paper analyzes the dynamics of earnings over the life-cycle, based on Swedish data, and the evolution of permanent and transitory earnings inequality for 2002-2015.

 

"Modeling Swedish Earning Dynamics" 

Current status: work in progress

Financed by Jan Wallanders och Tom Hedelius Stiftelse, Handelsbanken.

The aim of this paper is to build and estimate a semi-structural multivariate model of earnings over the life-cycle which includes labor market transitions such as job changes and transitions in and out of employment. The primary objective is to increase the understanding of the factors determining earnings and employment for individuals over their working lives. Using this model I will try to address a number of important questions such as the underlying causes of inequality at a point in life and over the life-cycle, the effect parental leave has on the future earnings and employment for males and females, and provide a measure of the relative importance of education, accumulation of general and firm specific experience and job shopping for career development.
