An Analysis of Sick Leave in Sweden using Panel Data 1985-1997

Wells, Curt LU ; Edgerton, David LU and Kruse, Agneta LU (2004) In Working Papers, Department of Economics, Lund University
Abstract
Since the beginning of the 1990's, sick leave benefits accruing from the tax-financed Swedish social security insurance have been reduced a number of times. In this paper we use data from the survey on the Household Market and Non-market activities to estimate a fixed effects negative binomial model. We find a direct relationship between the rate of compensation and the amount of sick leave taken
