Abstract
This thesis analyses the labour market mismatch among four different ethnic groups. The results reflect the importance of the transferability of human capital in the Swedish labour market. These results indicate that Nordic and Western immigrants have a greater transferability of human capital than Eastern and Southern Europeans and non-Western immigrants. Furthermore, Swedish schooling or being partly brought up in Sweden seems to be an important determinant of the labour market mismatch.
