- Reports / Rapporter 
The report gives a detailed statistical exposition of flows of personnel between the research-producing sector and other sectors of the economy for the period 1988-1998 in Denmark, Finland, Norway and Sweden. Complete annual matched employee/employer datasets for the four countries make up the bulk of the data. The definition of the research-producing sector is discussed along with potential problems of statistical artefacts and national differences in these register data. The annual flows are then broken down over sub-sectors in research and over the educational background of the personnel, with particular emphasis on science and engineering. Recommendations concerning relevant register data are offered.
