Social-economic integration of Greek repatriates from the former USSR: obstacles to entry into the Greek labor market. MPRA Paper 35752,  University Library of Munich, Germany (2002).

The purpose of this study is to examine the demographic and social/cultural characteristics of ethnic Greeks from the former USSR and the extent that these characteristics affect their integration into the Greek labor market. For achieving this target we employ logistic regression analysis to test a model to predict the case of being employed or not by considering various factors as explanatory variables. A field research was carried out for the first time in the broader area of West Athens and a total of 6994 respondents are used to estimate the parameters of this model. From past experience we identify 13 major variables contributing to employment or not. The results show an overall significant model with 6 of the 13 variables statistically significant.
