The social and employment situation in Sweden - pdf

Summary
The labour market in Sweden is performing well. In 2016 Sweden had the highest overall employment rate (81.2%) in the EU as well as below the EU average (8.5%) unemployment rate (6.9%). However low-educated and low-skilled young people and people with a migrant background face relatively high unemployment. This challenge is likely to remain in the coming years also in light of the large number of refugees arriving in Sweden. Sweden has established well-functioning system of social dialogue in which partners play a central role. The system showed strong resilience during the financial crisis and is also seen as having contributed to Sweden’s rapid recovery. Out of all European countries, Sweden has the highest proportion of refugees in its overall population, which is currently estimated at 9.9 million. “The Nordic Model” has reached a point of saturation because number of refugees continues to increase
