Tourism and recreational home developments generate much of the economic activity at mountain destinations in Norway.
This paper examines the substitution between pension wealth and household saving by studying Norway’s 2011 pension reform.
Previous literature has found that extending the suffrage to both females and poorer voters increases the supply of public goods.
The labour force surveys (LFSs) on all Eurostat countries underwent a substantial redesign in January 2021. To ensure coherent labour market time series for the main indicators in the Norwegian LFS, we model the impact of the redesign.
This paper investigates firm dynamics in the period before, during, and after an event consisting of a first published patent application.
This paper studies the economic effects on re-employment and program substitution behavior among elderly displaced workers who exogenously lose eligibility for their early retirement option.
We analyse how fiscal policy affects both the macroeconomy and the industry structure, using a multi-sector macroeconomic model of the Norwegian economy with an inflation targeting monetary policy.
Children cause large earnings drops for mothers but not fathers, a stylized fact known as the “child penalty” that explains a substantial portion of remaining gender income gaps.
We investigate the effects of a large-scale Norwegian reform that provided extra teachers to 166 lower secondary schools with relatively high student-teacher ratios and low average grades.
We identify variables that help explain the persistent weakness of the Norwegian krone since 2016 within a fully simultaneous model of the underlying process driving the krone-euro exchange rate.
Abatement can be performed by measures that have an impact on present emissions, but no lasting effect, and by long-lived infrastructure investments.
Consumers often face choice settings in which alternatives are discrete. Examples include choices between variants of differentiated products, modes of urban transportation, residential locations, etc.
This study examines the effect of the COVID-19 pandemic on fertility in Norway at the individual level.
This paper introduces a theory-based equivalence scale for public in-kind transfers, which justifies comparison of distributions of extended income (cash income plus the value of public services) between European countries.
Simultaneity represents a fundamental problem when estimating the elasticity of substitution between capital and labour.
