Hide / Show Abstract

In OECD countries, around 13% of foreign-born workers are self-employed. Migrants represent around 12% of the self-employed not working in agriculture, a percentage that changed little between 2005 and 2010. There are however very large differences across countries. While in several OECD countries, including Finland, Germany, Sweden and the United States, the rates of self-employment are similar for natives and migrants, in other countries such as the Czech Republic and Poland, the self-employment rates of immigrants are much higher than those of natives.
