This thesis contributes to knowledge about differences in employment-rate among foreign born and Swedish natives. It is visible in the results that there are differences in employment-rate between foreign-born in urban and rural areas with an employment-rate that generally are higher among foreign-born who lives in urban areas than those who lives in rural areas.
