    What determines people's decisions whether or not to report sick?2005In: Applied Economics, ISSN 0003-6846, E-ISSN 1466-4283, Vol. 37, no 5, p. 533-543Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Swedish employees who are temporarily absent from work are compensated for the loss of income from the governmentally regulated sickness insurance. During the 1990s, when the societal costs for covering sickness absence raised dramatically, the sickness insurance underwent several changes, which raised questions about how people reacted to the changes made. This article is based on a survey where individuals were asked several questions about whether they would go to work or report sick, given that they actually felt ill. Respondents were asked the same questions under different hypothetical compensations. The results indicated strong effects of factors related to the financial loss of being absent on the propensity to report sick.

    Tests for causality between integrated variables using asymptotic and bootstrap distributions: theory and application2006In: Applied Economics, ISSN 0003-6846, E-ISSN 1466-4283, Vol. 38, no 13, p. 1489-1500Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Causality tests in the Granger's sense are increasingly applied in empirical research. Since the unit root revolution in time-series analysis, several modifications of tests for causality have been introduced in the literature. One of the recent developments is the Toda-Yamamoto modified Wald (MWALD) test, which is attractive due to its simple application, its absence of pre-testing distortions, and its basis on a standard asymptotical distribution irrespective of the number of unit roots and the cointegrating properties of the data. This study investigates the size properties of the MWALD test and finds that in small sample sizes this test performs poorly on those properties when using its asymptotical distribution, the chi-square. It is suggested that use be made of a leveraged bootstrap distribution to lower the size distortions. Monte Carlo simulation results show that an MWALD test based on a bootstrap distribution has much smaller size distortions than corresponding cases when the asymptotic distribution is used. These results hold for different sample sizes, integration orders, and error term processes (homoscedastic or ARCH). This new method is applied to the testing of the efficient market hypothesis.

    The effect of regime shifts on the long-run relationships for Swedish money demand2005In: Applied Economics, ISSN 0003-6846, E-ISSN 1466-4283, Vol. 37, no 15, p. 1731-1736Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    When the possibility of an unknown structural break is allowed and it is taken into account we find a significant long-run relationship between Swedish money demand and its determinants that is not found when no break is considered. The estimated elasticities show that money demand is more responsive to its determinants in the period after the break than before. Possible underlying reasons for the occurrence of this break and its implications are explained.

    The Response of Industry Employment to Exchange Rate Shocks: evidence from panel cointegration2006In: Applied Economics, ISSN 0003-6846, E-ISSN 1466-4283, Vol. 38, no 4, p. 415-421Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This study investigates the long-run relationship between employment and exchange rate shocks at the industry level for France. Using panel unit roots and panel cointegration analysis, it is found that the French industries are quite sensitive to exchange rate changes. The estimated long-run elasticities reveal that exchange rates do influence industry employment in the expected way, that is, real appreciations are associated with decline in manufacturing for all industries in the sample
