Occupational Distribution within Swedish Industries - an identification and market relation analysis
This paper sheds new light on the Swedish industry structure, by defining it through its occupational and educational structure. It is a merge of all Swedish private firms and all individuals employed within those firms, aggregated over industry, for the year 2001. Education is separated from creative occupations, and we also identify industries with the largest concentration of service and manufacturing occupations. The growth pattern within the industry segments between 1993 and 2001 is provided, and an examination of the spatial distribution. While there is a close relation between larger markets and knowledge, creative and service industries, we can detect a weaker link to the manufacturing industries. The effect from being located in the main urban area within the urban region, as well as within one of the three metropolitan regions, is highly significant for all industries, but relatively weaker for the manufacturing industry. The results also imply that diversity and creativity, in terms of the number of establishments, closely relate to the metropolitan regions. The concentration of activities, in terms of the number of employees, is more driven by large markets in general.
