Abstract

In this Swedish study, the combined effects of gender, social and national background on transition within the school system and into the labour market are examined. Education has been perceived in some studies as something that neutralises discrimination. However, immigrants, who have studied at the tertiary level in Sweden, are still less likely to obtain jobs matching those of their Swedish counterparts. Students with well-educated parents are favoured in the educational system, whereas Swedish men are favoured in the labour market. This is a large-scale, longitudinal study comprising three entire birth cohorts born in the middle of the 1970s.
