    The labor market impact of refugee immigration in Sweden 1999–20072013Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This study estimates labor market effects of refugee immigration in Sweden 1999–2007. The setting is particularly suitable for using spatial variation within the country to estimate labor market effects of immigration. Bias from endogenous immigrant settlement is likely to be smaller when estimating the effect of only refugee immigration. Bias from internal migration of previous inhabitants is reduced by using data where the same individuals are identified over time. No significant effect of refugee immigration on total unemployment is found, but there is a large effect on the unemployment of previous immigrants from low- and middle-income countries, indicating that newly arrived refugee immigrants are substantially more easily substituted for this group than for natives in production.

    Is It How You Look or Speak That Matters?: An Experimental Study Exploring the Mechanisms ofEthnic Discrimination2011Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Using a unique laboratory experiment where subjects are asked to guess the test per-formance of candidates presented by facial portraits and voice messages, this paperexplores the following questions: Are beliefs about performance affected by if a can-didate is perceived to have looks that are non-stereotypical for the dominant pop-ulation and do these beliefs change if the candidate has native-like versus accentedspeech? The experiment is conducted in Sweden and the results show that candi-dates not perceived as stereotypically Swedish are considered to be worse perform-ers. These beliefs are found in within-gender but not in cross-gender evaluationsand are not eliminated when additional performance-related information about thecandidates is provided. When candidates are presented by both looks and speech,differential evaluations based on looks disappear. Instead, we find strong negativebeliefs about performance for candidates that speak Swedish with a foreign accentimplying that ethnic stereotypes associated with speech override stereotypes associ-ated with appearance. The negative beliefs associated with foreign-accented speechare not supported by corresponding mean differences in the candidates’ actual testperformance.

    Ethnic Segregation and Educational Outcomes in Swedish Comprehensive Schools2007Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    We ask whether ethnic density in Swedish comprehensive schools affect teacher-assigned school grades in ninth grade (age 16). The data, based on two entire cohorts who graduated in 1998 and 1999 (188,000 pupils and 1,043 schools), link school information with Census data on social origin, and enable us to distinguish first- from second generation immigrants. Using multilevel analysis we find the proportion of first, but not the second, generation immigrant pupils in a school to depress grades in general, but particularly for (first generation) immigrant pupils. Passing a threshold of more than 40 percent immigrants reduces grades with around a fifth of a standard deviation, affecting fourteen percent of immigrant children. Our main results are robust to model specifications which address omitted variable bias both at individual- and school-level. One policy implication of our results is that desegregation policies which concentrated on the two per cent most segregated schools would probably improve school results and reduce ethnic inequality.

    Abstract [sv]

    Vid olika undersökningar är det viktigt att beakta problem med övertäckning och bortfall. Denna rapport innehåller en allmän genomgång av sådana problem och belyser dem genom en närmare presentation av denna typ av problem i samband med levnadsnivåundersökningen av utlandsfödda och deras barn (LNU-UFB).

    Peers, neighborhoods and immigrant student achievement - evidence from a placement policy2011Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    We examine to what extent immigrant school performance is affected by the characteristics of the neighborhoods that they grow up in. We address this issue using a refugee placement policy which provides exogenous variation in the initial place of residence in Sweden. The main result is that school performance is increasing in the number of highly educated adults sharing the subject’s ethnicity. A standard deviation increase in the fraction of high-educated in the assigned neighborhood raises compulsory school GPA by 0.9 percentile ranks. Particularly for disadvantaged groups, there are also long-run effects on educational attainment.

    Assortative Mating by Ethnic Background and Education in Sweden: The Role of Parental Composition on Partner Choice2009Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Assortative mating patterns in two dimensions namely, ethnic background and education are analysed in this paper for individuals with an immigrant background living in Sweden. We focus on the role of individual and spousal characteristics as well as the role of parental composition on partnership formation. Results indicate that assorative mating by ethnic background is significantly lower for second generation immigrants in comparison to first generation immigrants. In the case of assortative mating by education, although the descriptive statistics show that the proportion of educational homogamy is higher for second generation immigrants, after controlling for own and partners’ characteristics, educational homogamy is found to be significantly lower for those in the second generation. Gender differences in these patterns suggest that second generation females are significantly less likely than second generation men to be in educational homogamouspartnerships relative to their first generation counterparts. In terms of parental composition, having a Swedish background (mother or father) is associated with lower ethnic endogamy, especially for first generation women. Having a Swedish background is also associated with significantly higher probabilities of educational homogamy but primarily only for first generation male immigrants.
