Identification of key variables on working hours

It was an aim of the workshop to propose a list of key variables to be included in cohorts on working hours in the Nordic countries. The discussion was addressed in the whole group and continued in a smaller group. In both cases the discussion focused on pay-roll data which includes times for coming to and leaving work on a daily basis. Cohorts of pay-roll based working hour data have recently been established in Norway, Finland and Denmark and all the Nordic countries have experience with working with this type of data. This type of data is a promising new tool in working hour research.
