Do When and Where Matter?: Initial Labor Market Conditions and Immigrant Earnings
University of Kalmar, Baltic Business School.
2007 (English)In: Economic Journal, ISSN 0013-0133, E-ISSN 1468-0297, Vol. 117, no 518, p. 422-448Article in journal (Refereed) Published
Abstract [en]

This article investigates the long-term effects on immigrant earnings and employment of labour market conditions encountered upon arrival. We find that early earnings assimilation depends crucially on a favourable national labour market. Exposure to high local unemployment rates also affects individuals for at least ten years. To handle the issue of selective migration, we compare refugees entering Sweden during a severe and unexpected recession to refugees arriving during a preceding economic boom. The analysis of effects at the local level exploits a governmental refugee settlement policy to get exogenous variation in local labour market conditions.
