Mass migration to Israel and natives' employment transitions
This study examines how mass migration from the former Soviet Union to Israel affected natives' probability of moving from employment to non-employment. Using 1989-99 data from the Israeli Labor Force Survey, the authors find that within a given labor market cell-defined by schooling, occupation, industry, district of residence, and experience-the share of immigrants was generally positively associated with natives' probability of moving from employment to non-employment. However, when cell fixed effects are added, this effect is substantially reduced for men, and disappears or is even reversed for women. The authors conclude that immigrants tended to cluster in labor market cells with high turnover rates and that immigrants' presence in a certain occupation did not increase natives' likelihood of exiting employment. They also find no discernible effects of immigration on natives' transitions between labor market cells or on the probability of their moving from non-employment to employment.
