Evidence of Ethnic Discrimination in the Swedish Labor Market with Experimental Data

Abstract [en]

*

We present experimental evidence for recruitment discrimination against men with an Arabic

sounding name. Our results show that every fourth employer discriminates against the

minority. However, simulations indicate that ethnic discrimination is only responsible for less

than one sixth of the native-immigrant unemployment gap. We extend previous analyses

using this method by interviewing employers. We find that discriminatory employers have, to

a greater extent, a male responsible for recruitment and a share of male employees greater

than 35 percent. Firms that have an ethnic multitude plan were not found to discriminate less

than other firms.
