Abstract [en]

This article investigates the effect of human capital on the employment acquisition of foreign-born men and women in Sweden. Besides categorizing different levels of education, a distinction is made between type of education, general and vocational, and where education is obtained, home or host country. The data used is based on register data for the year 2003 held by Statistics Sweden. The population under consideration is the total population subdivided by the following countries of birth: Sweden, Former Yugoslavia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Poland, Romania, Chile, Germany, Iraq, Iran, and Lebanon. The analysis shows that foreign-born individuals have a higher probability of employment with a vocational and host country education as opposed to a general and home country education.

Abstract [en]

The aim of this article is to study the differences in the match/mismatch of education and job level as well as the differences between the native and immigrant population in the occupational match. A distinction is made between educational levels and general and vocational education. A sample consisting of native Swedes and nine immigrant groups, based on register data, was selected for analysis. Descriptive statistics are presented and analyzed as well as logistic regression analysis controlling for basic human capital and immigrant specific variables. The main conclusions of the article are that there are considerable differences between vocational and general education in the match/mismatch, as well as differences between natives and immigrants. The vocationally educated population shows a higher match compared to the generally educated, but the generally educated population shows a higher proportion of undereducated individuals compared to the vocationally educated population. Although there are considerable differences between the studied immigrant groups, the general conclusion is that the immigrated population shows a lower match between educational level and skills level of the job as well as a higher level of overeducation compared to the native population.

Abstract [fr]

Le but de cet article est d’étudier les différences dans les équivalences et les non équivalences d’études au niveau des études et du travail ainsi que les différences parmi les gens du pays et la population immigrée. On fait une distinction entre les niveaux d’étude et les connaissances générales et professionnelles. Un échantillon composé de Suédois d’origine et neuf groupes d’immigrés, basé sur des données indiquées, a été sélectionné pour analyse. Les statistiques décrites sont présentées et analysées ainsi que l’analyse de la régression logistique, contrôlant le capital humain basique et les variations spécifiques des immigrés. Les principales conclusions de cet article sont les différences considérables entre la formation professionnelle et générale dans les équivalences et les non équivalences ainsi que les différences entre les gens du pays et les immigrés. La population ayant reçu une formation professionnelle montre une plus grande équivalence comparé à la formation générale. Mais la population ayant reçu une formation générale montre une plus grande proportion d’individus qui ont fait peu d’études comparé à la population avec une formation professionnelle. Malgré les différences considérables entre les groupes d’immigrés étudiés, la conclusion générale est qu’une population immigrée montre une équivalence plus faible entre le niveau d’études et le niveau d’aptitudes professionnelles ainsi qu’un plus grand niveau des personnes surqualifiées comparées aux gens du pays.
