Long-term integration of immigrants in Austria: a dynamic Microsimulation Model

Austria, in spite of its long tradition of receiving immigrants, lacks empirical studies and findings on the economic integration of immigrants from a long-run longitudinal perspective. This study is a detailed analysis of the educational and labour market integration of immigrants based on existing data. In a second step we integrate data bases and statistical models to a dynamic microsimulation model. This model allows for a wide range of scenarios concerning the future number and composition of immigrants, their labour market behaviour as well as educational outcomes of young immigrants and the children of immigrants.
