Abstract: In this study, we address the challenges and implications of ensuring fairness in algorithmic decision-making (ADM) practices related to ethnicity. We provide an overview of ethnic classification schemes in European countries and emphasize how the distinct approaches to ethnicity and race in Europe can impact fairness assessments in ADM. Using German data, we train machine learning classifiers and explore the fairness implications of different ethnic classifications in labor market- and health-related prediction tasks using common group-based fairness metrics. The findings contribute to the understanding of fairness in ADM from a European perspective.
