IZA DP No. 649: From Parent to Child: Early Labor Market Experiences of Second-Generation Immigrants in the Netherlands

published in: De Economist, 2004, 152 (4), 473-490

This paper is on the early labor market experiences of second-generation immigrants in the Netherlands. We find that only for employment rates there are some differences across ethnic groups. Conditional on having a job there is hardly any difference in wages and other job characteristics between second-generation immigrants and native Dutch of the same age group.
