Sjuk-Sverige: Försäkringskassan, rehabilitering och utslagningen från arbetsmarknaden

Research output: Book/ReportBook


Sweden has experienced an increase in the number of individuals on long-term sick leave between 1997 and 2004. This occured along side changes in the social insurance system and led to an increase in the number of individuals permanently excluded from working life. Rehabilitation and activation measures which should have helped people back to work have instead increased the length of sick leave as well as the number of individuals with an early pension.
