A study by Alireza Behtoui at the Institute for Research on Migration, Ethnicity and Society (REMESCO) found no difference in the levels of education between children of Turkish parents and children of Swedish-born parents. The first group does generally have a higher level of unemployment. However, when taking into account social class, the differences disappear.
A considerable difference between the two groups is with income. This could be because of the branch of work chosen.
"We know that social contacts are important to establish yourself professionally. Many children of immigrants lack the right social contacts," Behtoui said in an interview with Swedish Television.
