The labor market skills of recent male immigrants: Evidence from the Current Population Survey
Using data from special supplements to the Current Population Survey (CPS), the authors track the education and hourly earnings of recent male immigrants to the United States. In terms of these measures of labor market skills, the CPS data suggest that immigrants who came in the late 1980s were more skilled than those who arrived earlier in the decade. This pattern represents a break from the steady decline in immigrant skill levels observed in 1940-80 Census data. Despite the encouraging trend over the 1980s, however, the average skills of recent immigrants remain low by historical standards. (Abstract courtesy JSTOR.)
