Research related to the functioning of the Finnish labour market plays a key role in our activities. The research focuses on empirical projects that are relevant to wage earners. Our research can be applied in political decision-making. In addition to producing high-quality research, our aim is to provide solution-oriented research and to interact with those who utilise this information. Our empirical research utilises to a large extent individual-level data.

Our labour market and education research covers the following themes
  • wage formation
  • employment and unemployment
  • structural changes in the labour market
  • gender equality in the labour market
  • labour market flexibility, employment relations
