dc.description.abstractThe Swedish adult education program known as the Knowledge Lift is unprecedented in itssize and scope, aiming to raise the skill level of all low-skilled workers towards the mediumlevel. This paper evaluates the effects of program participation on individual labor marketoutcomes, notably employment and annual income, as well as on the labor marketequilibrium. For the effects at the individual level, we apply fixed effect methods allowing fortreatment effect heterogeneity. The data are based on a number of matched longitudinaladministrative data sets covering the full population of Sweden. For the equilibrium effects,we analyze an equilibrium search model with heterogeneous worker skills. This model iscalibrated using pre-program observations.en_US
