What difference does a country make? Earnings by Soviets in the Soviet Union and in the United States
AbstractThis paper utilizes the Soviet Interview Project (SIP) and the 1990 U.S. census to identify and to track a sample of Soviet Ã©migrÃ©s. After examining basic descriptive statistics on income mobility, we specify and estimate earnings functions to examine the impact of a variety of explanatory factors on household earnings in the Soviet Union and in the United States.
