Abstract [sv]

Den höga ungdomsarbetslösheten är ett problem i Sverige. Parallellt med detta planerar den svenska regeringen att höja pensionsåldern för att kunna bevara den svenska välfärden. Det är en vedertagen uppfattning att de äldre bör ge plats åt de yngre på arbetsmarknaden genom att pensionera sig, men kan ungdomsarbetslösheten pensioneras bort? Genom en ADL-regression utreder studien sambandet mellan sysselsättning hos äldre över 65 år, invandring, BNP samt inflation mot ungdomsarbetslösheten. Studien omfattar en tidsperiod mellan åren 2001-2013. Studiens resultat visar inte på några signifikanta samband mellan de äldres sysselsättning och ungdomsarbetslösheten. Inte heller invandring bidrar till ökad ungdomsarbetslöshet. Vad som däremot påverkar ungdomsarbetslösheten på kort sikt är inflationsnivå och BNP-tillväxt som båda har ett negativt samband med ungdomsarbetslösheten. En ökning i inflation eller BNP minskar ungdomsarbetslösheten. Studien finner inget stöd för den vedertagna uppfattningen om att ungdomsarbetslösheten kan pensioneras bort. De äldre på arbetsmarknaden som har uppnått pensionsåldern påverkar inte de yngres möjligheter till sysselsättning och bidrar således inte till en ökad ungdomsarbetslöshet

Abstract [en]

The high rate of youth unemployment is a problem in Sweden. At the same time the Swedish government plans to delay the retirement age to maintain the welfare in Sweden. It is commonly accepted that older employed should make way for the younger in the labor market by retiring, but can the youth unemployment be decreased by increased retirements? Through an ADL-regression the study investigates the relation between the older employed over 65 years, immigration, GDP and inflation against the youth unemployment. The study covers a period between the years 2001-2013. The results of the study show no significant relation between the older employed and the youth unemployment. Neither does the immigration contribute to an increase in youth unemployment. What actually affect the unemployment of the young in the short run are the inflation rate and the growth in GDP which both has a negative relationship with the youth unemployment. An increase in inflation rate or GDP will decrease the youth unemployment. The study cannot support the commonly held belief that the youth unemployment can be decreased by retirements. The old generation on the labor market that has reached the retirement age does not affect the youth‟s opportunities to find a job and therefor does not contribute to increased youth unemployment
