RELATIVE LABOUR MARKET OUTCOMES OF IMMIGRANTS IN CROATIA

 

 

Abstract. The paper investigates the relative labour market outcomes of immigrant versus native population in Croatia. The immigrant population is broadly defined as foreign born and two outcomes – employment and unemployment – have  been considered.  The individual Labour Force Survey data without identifier has been used to produce estimates for the period 2006-2012. The results in Croatia are similar to those in other countries, where it has been frequently found that immigrants have lower employment and higher unemployment rates than native population. The results do not indicate that a recent crisis has affected  immigrant population  relatively  more than native population, since no clear trends in widening of the estimated gaps have been identified.
