Abstract (Swedish)
This paper investigates the possible gains from implementing an alternative student
assignment mechanism in Malmö stad. The analysis is based on the school
choice literature and data from Malmö stad. The overall result tells us that the
current system for assigning students in Malmö stad is associated with problems. A
Gale-Shapley Student Optimal Mechanism customized for Malmö stad would be the
appropriate alternative for solving these problems. This further implies that Malmö
stad and similar Municipalities in Sweden ought to revise their current student assignment systems and consider an alternative mechanism.
