Economic gender equality 2021
In accordance with a decision of the Riksdag (Swedish Parliament), the Government has, since 1988, published a report on the distribution of economic resources between women and men as part of the Budget Bill.
The first section of this report describes the development of the difference between women and men in the labour market. In the following section the focus is on the difference between women’s and men’s individual disposable income. Then a picture is given of how the higher unemployment resulting from the recession in 2020 affected women’s and men’s disposable income. Finally, an assessment is presented of the impact of reforms in 2019–2021 on the distribution of economic resources between women and men.
