Australian migration policy change: selecting winners and making losers
AbstractI investigate the effects of 1997 Australian migration policy changes on the skilled immigrants' labour market and social assimilation. I find that, after the changes, notwithstanding the overall success and stronger favourable self-selection of skilled immigrants, females, Asians and the ‘poorer’ are at risk of underemployment and mental disorder. The findings facilitate the debate on economic gains and social costs of policy reforms.
