Abstract

Ethnic discrimination in the Dutch labour market: Differences between ethnic minority groups and the role of personal information about job applicants

In this study, we present the results of a large-scale field experiment on ethnic discrimination in the Dutch job market. We sent fictitious job applications (N = 4,211) to vacancies for jobs in ten different occupations in the Netherlands. By examining 35 different ethnic minority groups, we detect considerable differences in discrimination rates between western (discrimination rate 1.2) and non-western minorities (discrimination rate 1.4). Furthermore, we find little systematic variation in discrimination with regard to gender, regions, and occupations, pointing to the existence of an ethnic hierarchy that is widely shared among employers. Finally, we do not find empirical support for the hypothesis that adding personal information in job applications reduces discrimination.
