Do Reported Attitudes towards Immigrants Predict Ethnic Discrimination?

Abstract [en]

Reported attitudes towards immigrants are sometimes used as a proxy for ethnic

discrimination. However, there is little empirical evidence of a link between attitudes and

discrimination. In this paper, we use survey data on people’s attitudes towards immigrants

combined with data on ethnic discrimination from a field experiment in the Swedish housing

market to re-examine this issue. We find clear evidence of a link between reported attitudes

towards immigrants and the extent of ethnic discrimination at the municipality level. Thus, in

contrast to most prior studies, our results suggest that reported attitudes may be a useful

proxy for ethnic discrimination.
