The article focuses on various studies conducted by Swedish Institute for Social Research. In a study of technical change and the structure of employment, researcher Rolf Andersson attempted to analyze, theoretically and empirically, the mechanisms and patterns of redistribution of the labor force among aggregate sectors of the Swedish economy. Researcher Lena Gonäs investigated how the closure of a shipyard affected the lives of the individuals involved and their families, changes in local and regional labor market after the closure, and how manpower policy affected the individual and the region. Researcher Sten Johansson attempted to structure the concept of welfare in order to formulate an operational definition that would make continuous measurement of welfare possible.
