My name is Fredrik Jansson, born in 1967. I am a labour market economist, currently positioned as head of the Labour Market Unit at the Swedish National Labour Market Board. My thesis was about unemployment duration and rehires with previous employers.
For several years I worked with the development of the SESIM-model, a dynamic micro simulation model, at the Ministry of Finance. Now my primary interest in simulation models focus on agent based models. Apart from all usual resposibilities following leadership much of my working time is devoted to cost efficiency of labour market measures and development of targeting methods and models to aid employment officers in performing active labour market policies.
