On the same level? The labour market position of higher educated immigrants

This article provides an answer to the question how immigrants who participated in Dutch higher education function on the labour market. Success on the labour market was defined by the actual probability of finding work, as well as by the level of income received for this work. For this research, the Social Statistical Database was used. These data enabled us to follow for nine years an integral cohort of students who started higher education in 1996. All distinguished groups of immigrants as well as non-immigrants with a foreign background are less successful in finding work than the native part of the Dutch population. However, as for those graduates who managed to find work, the income received from labour does not differ between groups.
