Job Search and Immigrant Assimilation: An Earnings Frontier Approach

Contents:

Author Info

  • Daneshvary, Nasser, et al

Abstract

This study examines labor market assimilation by measuring the information utilized by immigrants during job search. Assimilation is assumed to occur whenever such information increases with length of residence in the United States (and repeated job searches). The authors assert that information utilized during job search reduces differentials between actual and "potential" (maximum attainable) earnings. Coauthors are Henry W. Herzog, Jr.; Richard A. Hofler; and Alan M. Schlottmann. Copyright 1992 by MIT Press.
