SUR estimation of earnings differentials between three generations of immigrants and natives

Jan Ekberg (), Mats Hammarstedt () and Ghazi Shukur ()

Abstract: This paper presents a SUR estimation of earnings differentials between three generations of male immigrants and male natives in Sweden. The results show that male first-generation immigrants were at an earnings advantage compared to male natives. Among male second-generation immigrants the earnings differentials compared to natives were very small, while third-generation immigrants were at an earnings disadvantage compared to natives. Thus, the results indicate that ethnic differences in earnings are likely to occur even after several generations spent in a country and that the problem of immigrant assimilation that exists in many European countries may last for several generations.
