Sex discrimination and segregation in the Swedish labour market: A field experiment

Abstract [en]

We study sex discrimination and segregation in the

Swedish labour market with the help of so-called “correspondence

testing”. More specifically, the method entails that two qualitatively

identical applications, one labelled with a male and one with a

female name, are sent to employers who have advertised vacancies.

In the studied occupations applications with a female name was

invited for an interview with a higher probability compared to

applications with a male name. We also found support for that

unequal treatment maintains segregation.

By adding register and interview data to the employers who

participated in the experiment, we found that applications with a

female name are invited to interview with less probability if the

workplace is a public sector employer or has less than 20

employees. Workplaces with a larger turnover of personnel on the

other hand invite applications with a female name with a higher

probability.
