Second-Generation Immigrants in the Swedish Labour Market
This study focuses on the labour market performance among second-generation immigrants in Sweden. One motivation behind the analysis is that it gives insight into the long-term consequences of immigration. Labour market performance relates the probability of having a job, referred to here as a threshold effect and to the differences in income from work, given that a person is in the market and is referred to as an income from work effect. We have shown that a clear threshold effect of being a second-generation immigrant exists and that different groups of second-generation immigrants perform differently in the Swedish labour market.
