Les différences liées à l'origine nationale sur le marché du travail français


  • Romain Aeberhardt
  • Roland Rathelot


This article provides an overview of the issue of ethnic differentials in wages and employment rates on the French labor market in a consistent empirical framework and with a single source of recent data. Wage differentials, even when they are high, are mainly due to differences in age and qualification, while differentials in employment rates cannot be explained this way. This result is robust even when controlling for residential location at a very fine level. Moreover, ethnic differentials are heterogeneous according to individual characteristics (education, age, sex...).
