Abstract: This study examines the employment convergence patterns of various immigrant groups to natives in Sweden. Using data with annual information (1990-1997) on more than 200,000 individuals, the probability of being regularly employed is estimated, by gender and region of birth, for immigrants with varying duration of residence in Sweden. The results indicate that employment convergence occurs primarily during the first 10 to 15 years after immigration and that significant differences to natives remain thereafter. East and Non European immigrants indicate 55 70 percent lower chances of being regularly employed, compared to natives, after twenty years in Sweden.
