  3. 3. The changing role and importance of the built environment for daily travel in Sweden

    Detta är en avhandling från Göteborg : University of Gothenburg

    Författare :Erik Elldér; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2015]
    Nyckelord :SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; built environment; travel; distance; daily; commuting; telework; residential location; Sweden; activities; mobility; spatiotemporal constraints;

    Sammanfattning : Geography, in terms of the built environment and location patterns, was traditionally, and still is, emphasized by many scholars, policymakers, and planners as greatly influencing people’s daily travel behaviour. However, taking recent decades of rapidly increasing mobility capabilities (physical as well as virtual) into account, and the related increase in individual choice opportunities, others argue that the importance of geographic factors has gradually dissolved.

    Sammanfattning : Labor Supply Responses and Adjustment Frictions: A Tax-Free Year in IcelandHow does labor supply respond to a temporary wage change? To answer this question, I study an unexpected and salient tax reform in Iceland in 1987 that resulted in a year free of labor income taxes, but creating only minimal income effects, offering an ideal natural experiment. I first construct a new employer-employee dataset from digitized administrative records for the population. LÄS MER
