Immigrant Earnings Differentials and Birth-Year Effects for Men in Canada: Post-war-1972
AbstractThis paper investigates immigrant earnings differentials for males in Canada and how these earnings have changed over time leading up to 1972 with workers' year of birth. The paper uses the 1973 Job Mobility Survey, which contains a direct measure of work experience reported independent of age. Thus, using age as a birth-year index, it is found that cross-sectional earnings differentials of immigrant men have widened since the later 1960s relative to those of native-born workers. This discrepancy is due to a steepening of earnings-experience profiles for native workers, a flattening of the years-since-migration earnings profile for immigrants, and a further flattening of the earnings-experience profile of immigrants.
