    Intensive coaching of new immigrants: an evaluation based on random program assignment2012In: Scandinavian Journal of Economics, ISSN 0347-0520, E-ISSN 1467-9442, Vol. 114, no 2, p. 575-600Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of this study is to evaluate whether intensive counseling and coaching by Public Employment Service (PES) caseworkers improves the employment opportunities of new immigrants in Sweden. This is tested within the framework of introduction programs for new immigrants. A trial introduction program was implemented from October 2006 to June 2008. Within participating municipalities, new immigrants were randomly assigned into treatment (intensive coaching) or control (regular introduction programs). The results indicate that there are significant treatment effects on employment probabilities as well as on participation in intermediate PES training programs.

    Kan introduktionsprogrammen förbättras? Utvärdering av ett randomiserat experiment – försöksverksamheten för vissa nyanlända invandrare (FNI)2009In: Ekonomisk Debatt, ISSN 0345-2646, Vol. 37, no 6, p. 6-17Article in journal (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Vi har jämfört övergången från arbetslöshet till osubventionerat och subventionerat arbete, utbildning och arbetsmarknadsutbildning för en grupp nyanlända invandrare som slumpmässigt valts ut för att delta i en försöksverksamhet. Försöket, som syftar till att förkorta tiden fram till inträde på arbetsmarknaden, bedrevs vid arbetsförmedlingar i Stockholms, Kronobergs och Skåne län. Gruppen jämfördes med en slumpmässigt utvald kontrollgrupp bestående av nyanlända som skrivits in vid samma arbetsförmedling under samma tidsperiod. Vi finner att sannolikheten att övergå till osubventionerat arbete, senast 15 månader efter inskrivning, i genomsnitt är omkring 4 procentenheter högre för deltagare i försöket.

    The Reverse Gender Gap in Ethnic Discrimination: Employer Stereotypes against Men and Women with Arabic NamesArticle in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    We examine differences in the intensity of employer stereotypes against men and women with Arabic names in Sweden by testing how much more work experience is needed to eliminate the disadvantage of having an Arabic name on job applications. Employers are first sent CVs of equal merits in a field-experiment setup. Arabic-named CVs are thereafter enhanced with more relevant work experience than Swedish-named CVs. Results indicate a reverse gender gap in employer stereotypes as initial differences in call-backs disappear for female applicants when CVs for Arabic-named applications are enhanced, but remain strong and significant for male applicants. Thus, contrary to what is often assumed about the interaction of gender and ethnicity, we find that Arabic men face stronger discrimination in the labor market than Arabic women.

    Assortative Mating by Ethnic Background and Education among Individuals with an Immigrant Background in Sweden2010In: Zeitschrift für Familienforschung, ISSN 1437-2940, E-ISSN 2196-2154, Vol. 22, no 1, p. 65-88Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper analyzes the determinants of assortative mating by ethnicity and education for individuals with an immigrant background in Sweden, focusing on the role of individual, marriage market and parental characteristics. Results indicate that higher levels of host country specific human capital decrease the likelihood of ethnic endogamy and increase the likelihood of educational homogamy. Opportunity as measured by sex ratios and relative group size is found to be positively correlated to both types of assortative mating. Parental assortative mating (ethnic/educational), as a measure of group identity, is found to increase the likelihood of assortative mating. A comparison of marginal effects, by gender, suggests that the social boundaries defined by ethnicity and education in the marriage market are relatively more easily crossed by men with the accumulation of local and general human capital. Likewise, the influence of group identity appears to matter more for women when marriages are based on ethnicity but matter more for men when marriages are based on education. Key words: assortative mating, immigrant background, ethnicity, educational level, marriage market, parental characteristics, sex ratio, group size, gender

    Inter- and Intra-Marriage Premiums Revisited: It’s Probably Who You Are, Not Who You Marry!2010Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    For immigrants, intermarriage with natives is assumed to have an assimilating role due to the

    enhancement of local human capital such a union creates in the form of improved knowledge

    about host country institutions, language and customs as well as access to native spouses’

    networks and contacts. However, marriage choice is endogenous, unobserved factors

    influence who we marry and our labor market outcomes. This study uses panel data on

    immigrants and their spouses in Sweden to estimate marriage premiums taking into account

    individual heterogeneity. This is done for three types of marriages; intermarriage to natives

    and intra-marriage with immigrants from home countries or other (non-Swedish) countries. A

    staggered fixed effects model is estimated separately for each marriage type to further

    disentangle a causal effect of intermarriage (intra-marriage) on annual income from any

    remaining positive selection effects into respective marriage type. Results from fixed effects

    estimation indicate that all types of marriage (with one exception) yield positive marriage

    premiums of similar magnitude. Significant pre-marriage income growth and a lack of postmarriage

    income growth for those that marry natives suggest that intermarriage premiums are

    largely due to selection.

    Acculturation identity and employment among second and middle generation immigrants2010In: Journal of Economic Psychology, ISSN 0167-4870, E-ISSN 1872-7719, Vol. 31, no 1, p. 35-50Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper explores the employment implications for second and middle generation immigrants in Sweden of identification to the ethnic group and to the majority culture, so-called acculturation identity. Results indicate no significant differences in employment probabilities between those that identify only with majority (assimilated) and those that identify with both the majority culture and the ethnic group (integrated). What appears to matter for employment outcomes is an attachment to the majority culture while a strong attachment to the ethnic group is not per se detrimental for employment outcomes.
