Abstract [en]

 This paper studies the intergenerational transmissions of self-employment

abilities among immigrants in Sweden. The results show that second-generation

immigrants are over-represented in self-employment compared to natives.

Male immigrants from countries neighbouring to Sweden and natives alike seem to

use both mothers and fathers as role models in their self-employment decision, but

the father is the stronger role model among male immigrants from more geographically

distant regions. Female immigrants use both their father and their

mother as role models in their self-employment decision. Furthermore, male

immigrants and male natives tend to become self-employed in the same business

sector as their fathers; female immigrants and female natives with self-employed

parents are over-represented in self-employment but not necessarily in the same

business sector as their parents.
