Sammanfattning

There are widespread concerns that the post-industrial process of economic change comes with an increasing polarization on the labour market, driven by a changing composition of jobs in the economy. At the same time, regional divergence characterizes spatial development in many developed economies. This paper creates a link between labour market polarization and regional divergence, and analyses the spatial patterns of labour market polarization in Swedish municipalities during the period 2002-2012. The paper shows that the national pattern of labour market polarization is driven by two main tendencies: First, polarization in previously manufacturing-dominated municipalities, and second, increasing labour market polarization and spatial selection within the fast-growing top-tier metropolitan regions. Outside these polarizing spaces, most municipalities, and in fact a majority of the entire population, still experience more traditional patterns of job upgrading. Our geographical analysis shows that the much-discussed abandonment of the traditional West-European job upgrading model towards a polarizing trajectory is not unequivocal. Instead, regional labour market change and metropolitan selection make labour market trajectories highly varied across space. The paper draws on Swedish matched employer-employee data containing detailed geo-referenced information on individuals’ occupations, sector affiliations and incomes, to assess which segments of the labour market grow or decline, and in which types of municipalities this is taking place.
