Race and Ethnic Discrimination in Labor Markets: An International Meta-Analysis

Project: Research project

Project Details


Studies suggest that labor market discrimination against racial and ethnic minority groups is present in most countries around the world. Yet we know little about how discrimination rates vary across countries and the influence of national conditions on discrimination rates. To address this gap, we propose an international meta-analysis of existing field studies of hiring discrimination, followed by a statistical analysis of social and policy factors linked to rates of hiring discrimination estimated by the meta-analysis. Field studies of hiring discrimination are experimental or quasi-experimental studies in which fictionalized candidates from different race or ethnic group apply for jobs.
