Welfare, labour and health

Main content


The research group Welfare, Labor and Health (WLH) aims to contribute to society’s understanding of the interplay between public policy and health, family life and the labor market. 

The group conducts research of relevance both to national and international policy makers. Our focus is on uncovering causal relationships based on analyses of registry data, but we also analyze research questions where broader perspectives are more suitable.

We lecture and supervise on topics related to our research fields at all levels at the Department of Economics.
