About HILD

The Historical Labour Database (HILD), comprises the most relevant Swedish wage statistics for the years 1865-1990.

The aims of compiling historical wage data in one database are:

  • To stimulate historical labour market research concerning wages.
  • To encourage and facilitate for students to write essays and dissertations about labour market conditions during the industrial era.
  • To provide information to the general public about the level of income of various wage categories.

The HILD project has been enabled through financial support from Riksbankens Jubileumsfond and the University of Gothenburg.
HILD contains tables and digitalized wage data (Excel files, with labels in Swedish only) together with the original tables as scanned images (PDF files). The statistics are divided according to ’economic sector/industry', ’county/city’, ’occupation/employment category’ and ’gender’.

HILD has been set up by Christer Lundh and Svante Prado.

When using information from HILD we appreciate if you make a reference to the Historical Labour Database, University of Gothenburg.
