Abstract [en]

Using large samples of persons born in 1985 we investigate the relationship between theneighbourhood where young people grew up and the probability that they will receive socialassistance when aged 19 to 21, for the three Swedish metropolitan regions - Stockholm,Gothenburg and Malmö. We also investigate to what extent use of social assistance receiptand other parental characteristics affect the probability of social assistance receipt as a youngadult. Logistic regressions are estimated for the majority population and “visible minorities”.A main result is that the rate of social assistance receipt in the neighbourhood has a sizableeffect on the probability of receiving social assistance as a young adult. We discuss severalpossible explanations for this. We also find that the probability of receiving social assistanceis negatively correlated with having completed secondary school and positively correlatedwith having become a young mother. The probability of social assistance receipt is stronglypositively linked to social assistance receipt in the parental home and negatively linked toincome in the parental home. Having parents with long educations decreases the probabilityof receipt for the majority population while among “visible minorities” it does not thoughreceipt decreases by year since immigration.

Abstract [sv]

idigare forskning har påvisat diskriminering av invandrare vid anställning, att invandrare har lägre löner än jämförbara infödda och att högutbildade invandrare oftare än infödda har arbeten som inte kräver högre utbildning. Vi undersöker om detta gäller även för invandrare som kommit till Sverige som barn och alltså har fått sin högsta utbildning i Sverige. Vi finner att de trots detta har lägre lön och lägre utbildningsavkastning än anställda med Sverige­födda föräldrar. I båda dessa avseenden missgynnas i synnerhet de från Afrika, Asien och Latinamerika. Barn från “arbetskraftsinvandringsländer” som Turkiet och Sydeuropa har också lägre lön än jämförbara infödda men inte lägre utbildningsavkastning. Att ha högre utbildning än yrket normalt kräver är vanligare bland barndomsinvandrarna än bland infödda men har mindre betydelse för löneskillnaden än den låga utbildningsavkastningen.

Abstract [en]

We analyse full-time monthly wages of employees with parents born in Sweden and of childhood immigrants who arrived before the end of compulsory school-age. We use a detailed disaggregation of background countries, which shows considerable hetero­geneity, in overeducation, in returns to education and in birth-country coefficients, unexplained by wage models. Both the non-European childhood immigrants and of those from Southern Europe suffer a wage disadvantage relative to natives, men to a larger extent than women. Returns to education are generally lower for non-European childhood immigrants than for natives. Comparison with workers, who immigrated as adults, shows that the childhood immigrants of most nationalities run lower risk of being overeducated and have a smaller wage disadvantage. The child/adult immigrant difference is larger, the larger the disadvantage of the adult immigrants from a country of origin. But for male childhood immigrants from some of the labour transmitter countries, the risk of overeducation is larger than it is for adult immigrants and the difference in adjusted wages between childhood immigrants and adult immigrants also tends to be smaller than for other countries of origin.

Abstract [en]

Using unique survey data from the Russian industrial city Taganrog in 1989 and 1998, we analyse changes in the gender division of labour among gainfully employed women and men, pre- and post-transition. In Soviet Taganrog, dual earner families predominated, but nevertheless men were usually primary earners, while women did the bulk of housework. After transition, contrary to early predictions, aggregate female and male employment rates have declined to a similar extent but the time-use data indicate increased gender specialisation among the employed .Thus, the dual earner norm mainly remains but the pre-existing gender difference within it has increased considerably, particularly among couples with pre-school children

Abstract [sv]

Det är vanligare att kvinnor har en högre utbildning än vad som typiskt krävs för deras yrke (överutbildning), medan män i högre utsträckning än kvinnor har en lägre utbildning än vad som typiskt krävs för deras yrke (underutbildning). I denna studie undersöker vi i vilken utsträckning denna över- och under-utbildning påverkar könslönegapet och skillnader i utbildningsavkastning i Sverige mellan 1993 och 2002.

Resultaten visar att över- och underutbildning bidrar betydligt mer till köns-löneskillnaderna än traditionella humankapitalvariabler, som utbildningsnivå och arbetslivserfarenhet. I dekomponeringar minskar över- och underutbild-ningsvariabler könslönegapet med mellan en tiondel och en sjättedel, vilket är mellan en tredjedel och hälften av vad könssegregeringen på arbetsmarknaden förklarar. Det är med andra ord viktigt att ta hänsyn till över- och under-utbildning när könslöneskillnader analyseras. Resultatet att kvinnor har lägre avkastning på utbildning än män kvarstår dock

Abstract [en]

We investigate skill mismatch and its impact on gender differences in wage gap and in returns to education in Sweden 1993 to 2002.Women are more likely to have more formal education than what is normally required for their occupation (overeducation), while men are more likely to have less (undereducation).Over- and undereducation contribute far more to the gender wage gap than years of schooling and work experience. In decompositions, adjusting for skill mismatch decreases the gender wage gap by between one tenth and one sixth. This is roughly a third to a half as much as is accounted for by segregation by industry. Thus, taking skill mismatch into account is essential for the analysis of gender wage differentiation, even though it does not alter the result that the estimated returns to education are smaller for women than for men in Sweden.Keywords: Gender differentials, discrimination, over- and undereducationJEL-codes: J16, J24, J31, J71

Abstract [en]

The purpose of this article is to follow the development of the Swedish gender earnings gap through the 1980s and 1990s. We follow the changes in the wage gap and in factors to which it can be related year-by-year by analysing crosssectional data from Statistics Sweden (HEK) for the years 1981 and 198398. The results show that the unadjusted wage gap varied between 12 and 15 per cent of the average male wage up to 1989, when the differentials began to increase. During the 1990s the size of the gap was around 1418 per cent. In a decomposition analysis we find that the measured differences in jobs and qualifications between women and men can account only for between two-fifths and three-fifths of the gender wage gap, if they are assumed to be rewarded according to the male wage function. If the female wage function is applied, even less of the differentials are explained. Differences in the educational requirements for jobs have contributed considerably to gender earnings inequality. The impact has decreased over the period studied, however, and is about half as large in the 1990s as it was in the 1980s
