Abstract [en]

We have for the past few years been able to see a development in Sweden where both household consumption and debt have increased. Consumption has been shown to represent a big part of the country’s GDP and played a vital role in its recovery from the financial crisis 2008. At the same time debt among households can be considered to be a potential risk factor in society and a contributing factor to financial crisis. Hence the relationship between these two variables is of interest to examine. A quantitative analysis will be performed in this study to examine how debt affects consumption among households in Sweden. The dataset used in this analysis reaches from the first quarter 1997 to the fourth quarter 2017. Both a multiple regression without time lags and a time series regression with three time lags will be performed to examine this relationship. The result is that debt affects consumption negatively in both regressions. Also, it is shown to be likely that consumption is influenced by debt through several variables and that debt is influenced by other variables making it a part of those variables effect on consumption. The study indicates that the relationship between debt and consumption is a complex subject which need further study.
