In the PhD thesis (entitled "Essays in Empirical Studies Based on Administrative Labour Market Data"), different econometric methodologies are compared and then applied using administrative labour market data. The findings through three empirical studies provide insights into the topics within labour economics. More specifically, various econometric frameworks and empirical approaches to mitigate omitted variable bias are investigated in Chapter 1, the impact of immigration on the wages of native workers in Denmark is examined in Chapter 2, then the native-immigrant wage gap in Denmark is studied in Chapter 3, and finally a brief conclusion for all chapters is presented.
