Abstract [en]

This paper examines intragroup differences in

self-employment within different immigrant groups and the

native population in Sweden with the help of 1990 Census

data. Intragroup differences are observed among all the groups.

The study shows that differences in self-employment rates

between individuals with different educational attainment exist

for some of the immigrant groups. For immigrants from

Southern Europe and non-European immigrants as well as for

natives, the propensity for self-employment is lower among

individuals with higher education. Furthermore, the study also

shows that there are intragroup differences defined by gender

and point in time for immigration. Finally, the study observes

small differences in self-employment earnings within the

different immigrant groups.
