Economic Upturns are Good for Your Heart but Watch out for Accidents: A Study on Swedish Regional Data 1976-2005

2010 (English)In: Applied Economics, ISSN 0003-6846, E-ISSN 1466-4283, Vol. 42, no 5, 615-625 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
Abstract [en]

This article explores the relationship between the regional unemployment rate in total and cause-specific mortality in Sweden during 1976–2005. Overall mortality is unrelated to changes in the unemployment rate, while the biggest cause of death (heart disease) decreases when the unemployment rate decreases. At the same time, other accidents, including job-related accidents, increases when the unemployment rate decreases. Swedish evidence provide no support for the US research findings, that ‘short-term decreases in the unemployment rate are bad for your health’, in general.
