Dafni Papoutsakiís new publication "Job separation rates of immigrants and natives in the UK during the Great Recession" assesses the probability of job separations of immigrants and natives in the UK before and after the economic crisis of 2008 and is now available for free download.
This research was carried out within the CPC project "Migrants during the current economic crisis" with CPC colleagues Dr Corrado Giulietti, Chuhong Wang, Professor Jackline Wahba and Dr Hector Calvo-Pardo. It is found that the crisis increased the probability of exits to unemployment for all groups, while immigrants from the new countries of the European Union seemed to have the lowest hazard towards unemployment even after controlling for their demographic and labour market characteristics. More specifically, even when we account for the fact that they tend to cluster in jobs that are most vulnerable to the business cycle, they are still less likely to exit dependent employment than natives. However, this migrant group is adversely affected by the crisis the most.
