Determinants of Immigrants’ Early Labor Market Integration
This study investigates conditions favouring early labor marketintegration for immigrants in Sweden. The study is based on a survey among immigrants just two and a half years after they received a permanent residence permit. Factors such as work experience; Swedish spouse and the local labor market conditions influence the likelihood in getting a job during the first years in Sweden. The results also indicate gender differences. The level of education only matters for men while fluency in language is favourable only for women. Surprisingly,those participating in an introduction program organized by the local municipalities do not have a higher probability of getting work early after arrival.
