The More Things Change: Immigrants and Children of Immigrants in the 1940s, the 1970s, and the 1990s
AbstractRising immigrant inflow have substantially affected the size and composition of the US workforce. They are also exerting an even bigger intergenerational effect: at present one-in-ten native born children are in the "second generation" - born to immigrant parents. In this paper we present a comparative perspective on the economic performance of immigrants and their children, utlizing data from the 1940 and 1970 Censuses, and from recent (1994-96) Current Population Surveys.
