Understanding Industrial Change through new ways of representing Industrial Employment Statistics
2008 (English)Conference paper (Other academic)
In this paper a new way of using industrial employment statistics in order to understand major industrial changes will be shown. The case used in order to present this method will be the country of Sweden and a new way of representing official employment‐data. In the case the whole (and not parts) of Sweden’s employment‐changes will be analyzed in categories where NACE‐codes (in Swedish terms: SNI‐codes) will be divided at a five‐figure‐level and a new pattern of branches/sectors will be developed. The employment‐development of these branches will be presented and analyzed with a graphical representation using Adobe Flash interactive software. The presentations shows a whole pattern where changes of specific branches can be analyzed together and compared to other branches in order to describe and understand why major changes occur. This representation makes it possible to analyze Sweden’s industrial transformation during the last 15 years – as a whole.
