Labor Supply and Commuting Time: A Swedish study
Dalarna University, School of Technology and Business Studies, Economics.

Abstract [en]

This paper examines how the commuting time affects workers’ labor supply in terms of weekly and daily working hours; days worked per week and preferred weekly working hours. I take into account the endogeneity of commuting time by controlling for endogenous changes in time. The empirical results show that commuting time has a slightly positive effect on daily labor supply, but a slightly negative effect on workdays per week and thus, no explicit effect on total weekly labor supply.
