Abstract [en]

A substantial public reform is taking place in Sweden. Public authorities are being moved from Stockholm to other parts of Sweden. The goal is to scatter these institutions to increase the public presence in smaller cities around the country. Not a lot of research has been carried out about relocation reform in the public sector. This paper intends to empirically research the significance of local and central political party majorities in the process of deciding where to place relocated institutions. With quantitative data such as vote turnout, which party is governing, unemployment rates and number of inhabitants in the cities this paper aims to explain why certain governmental institutions end up in different places in Sweden 2014 - 2018. While collecting data some trends seemed quite strong such as the correlation between cities where governmental institutions were placed and vote percentage for the governing party, particularly in the local elections. Cities were more likely to receive a institution if the inhabitants voted to a greater extent for the Swedish social democratic party as well as the biggest governing party in Sweden 2014 – 2018. Although when proceeding to multiple linear regression and Fischer’s exact test the p-values where not found to be significant exept the correlation between inhabitants in the cities who did or did not receive relocated institutions and relocation reform. As for further research this paper implies that there might be statistically significant correlations but to research such a thing one must include a greater number of cities who has received a relocated institution and perhaps design a cross-country study.
