''Okun's law: Place-of-birth-specific unemployment in Sweden ''
( 2023, Vol. 43 No.3 )
This paper examines the sensitivity of place-of-birth-specific unemployment to business cycle fluctuations in Sweden by using Okun's law. The findings indicate that foreign-born males are more exposed to business cycle fluctuations in comparison to their Swedish-born counterparts. One plausible explanation for this disparity is the occupation of the former group, which tends to exhibit a more pronounced reaction to changes in the business cycle.
