Les effets des cycles economiques sur l'assimilation des immigrants sur le marche du travail


  • Aydemir, Abdurrahman


Dans le cadre de cette etude, on presente les effets des conditions macroeconomiques sur les resultats obtenus sur le marche du travail par les immigrants. On expose les effets distincts des conditions macroeconomiques au moment de l'entree sur le marche du travail et au moment de l'enquete, et ce, tout en tenant compte des effets de cohorte. En outre, ce document est le premier du genre a examiner les repercussions sur la participation au marche du travail en meme temps que les resultats au chapitre de l'emploi. Dans cette etude, on utilise les donnees transversales tirees de 19 cycles annuels de l'Enquete sur les finances des consommateurs de 1979 a 1997. Les resultats laissent supposer que la plus faible assimilation des immigrants recents est attribuable en partie a une conjoncture economique defavorable au moment de leur entree sur le marche du travail et des annees subsequentes. Les conditions macroeconomiques au moment de l'entree sur le marche du travail ont des repercussions negatives tant sur la participation au marche du travail que sur l'emploi. L'inclusion des variables de controle tenant compte des conditions macroeconomiques a pour effet d'accroitre la signification et la grandeur du coefficient mesurant l'assimilation. Par consequent, tout comme les effets de cohorte estimes, les profils d'assimilation sont sensibles a l'inclusion de variables de controle pour tenir compte des cycles economiques.
