Abstract [en]

The objective of this thesis has been to analyze whether booms in the iron ore market has

any significant effects on local labor markets in certain municipalities in Norrbotten

County during the time period 2000-2016. Previous research has established that certain

types of booms and busts influenced local labor markets. The analysis was done by using

panel data and regression models where the results where compared over non-mining and

mining municipalities. The results gave a vague response with both conclusive and

inconclusive results over the variables investigated. The main conclusion is that although

the mining industry is a big part of local labor markets in Norrbotten County, it is

important for firms and policymakers to understand that the mining industry is not the

only important factor and that decisions should not be entirely based on the mining

industry and its markets.

Abstract [sv]

Målet med denna uppsats var att analysera ifall booms i järnmalmsmarknaden har någon

signifikant påverkan på lokala arbetsmarknader i utvalda kommuner i Norrbotten under

tidsperioden 2000–2016. Tidigare forskning har fastställt att vissa booms och busts kan

influera lokala arbetsmarknader. Analysen har genomförts med paneldata och

regressionsmodeller där resultat jämförts mellan gruvkommuner och ickegruvkommuner.

Resultaten gav otydliga resultat då vissa var konklusiva medan andra inte

var konklusiva. Den huvudsakliga slutsatsen som nåtts är att även om gruvindustrin är en

viktig del av de lokala arbetsmarknaderna, är det viktigt för företag och beslutsfattare att

förstå att gruvindustrin inte är den enda påverkande faktorn och att framtida beslut och

satsningar inte enbart ska baseras kring gruvindustrin och dess marknad.
