Deltidsarbetslöshet och arbetslöshetsförsäkring i Sverige (Part-time unemployment and unemployment insurance in Sweden)
AbstractConventional measures of unemployment do not capture all dimensions of joblessness. A case in point is underemployment among employed workers, also frequently referred to as parttime unemployment. Workers in this category are employed during a survey week but are unable to work as many hours as they wish. An ILO-resolution from 1998 defines underemployment as comprising persons in employment who (i) are willing to work additional hours, (ii) are available to work additional hours, and (iii) worked less than a threshold relating to working time. Underemployment accounts for a non-negligible fraction of the labor force in most countries, although it is typically somewhat lower in magnitude than the conventional measure of unemployment. By the end of 2009, part-time unemployment stood at almost 5 percent of the labor force in the OECD area.
