Cross-country Employment Propensity of Finnish Migrants: Evidence from Linked Register Data
This paper explores how individual employment propensityinterrelates across countries and time, using data that linkpopulation registers from Sweden and Finland. Migrants areobserved before emigration, after emigration, and in a follow-up in cases both where they were still living in the hostcountry and if they had return migrated. The interrelation isfound to be strong, suggesting that migrants’ employmentproblems need not necessarily be due to failures in integrationpolicies or because of problems in assimilation inducedby migration as an event. They could also be explained bythe fact that many persons, in latent subgroups, have inherentlyelevated failure risks.
