Abstract [en]

This paper examines the prevalence and character of age discrimination by conducting and experiment with 200 students at Växjö University. The participants were first asked to read a description of a job of either youthful or age neutral character. Afterwards they got to evaluate one out of two job applicants. The applicants were made identical in every way with the exception of age, in order to isolate the age discrimination. The results for the different jobs and applicants were then compared in order to investigate the prevalence of discrimination. The results support the hypothesis that age discrimination exists. In order to examine the dominance of either taste discrimination or statistical discrimination, i.e. whether the discrimination is the result of personal preferences or stereotypes and statistical mean values of different age groups the results were studied more in depth. The results hint a dominance of statistical discrimination over taste discrimination.
