Measuring and Explaining Discrimination in the Labour Market:New Understanding and Political Solution

Project period 2011 - 2014
Project nr. 410.092

Discrimination in the labour market occurs when people with similar
qualifications and merits are treated unequally. Our project will measure
whether immigrants are discriminated against in the labour market, and if
so, in what segments. By combining a new methodological research design
(correspondence testing) with solid empirical research using register
data, this project will increase our knowledge about the prevalence and
causes of discrimination. We will pay particular attention to gender
differences among immigrants and compare them with gender differences in
the majority population. Our main dependent variables are access to jobs,
employment careers and wage differentials.
