Small municipalities use central government transfers effectively to support their only general upper secondary school

Small municipalities use central government transfers effectively to support their only general upper secondary school

According to a study by VATT Institute for Economic Research, the increased coefficient included in the central government transfer system to support small general upper secondary schools is an effective and clearly targeted policy measure. However, there are still differences between municipalities: higher share of pensioners is associated with municipalities directing less funding to general upper secondary education.

Preliminary results of the basic income experiment: self-perceived wellbeing improved, during the first year no effects on employment

Preliminary results of the basic income experiment: self-perceived wellbeing improved, during the first year no effects on employment

The basic income experiment did not increase the employment level of the participants in the first year of the experiment. However, at the end of the experiment the recipients of a basic income perceived their wellbeing as being better than did those in the control group. The results are to some extent preliminary, and it is not yet possible to draw any firm conclusions regarding the effects of the basic income experiment.
