Educational Qualification and Labor Market Success of Ethnic Minorities: The Case of Germany

The goal of this project was a comparative investigation of the disadvantaged ethnic minorities on the labor market and the causes behind this. The same statistical analyses were carried out with comparative datasets to determine whether there is differentiation between extent and causes of ethnic inequality in various societal contexts. The microcensus provided the data for the German part of this international study.
