Even when controlling for different factors such as education level, knowledge in the Swedish language, age etc. a big gap remains. In the second part I discuss and analyze different explanatory models for this segregation. I argue that this exclusion off the immigrant part off the population is largely due to a quite extensive ethnic discrimination in the Swedish labour market. (Less)
