Abstract

This report extends the initial analysis of the first wave of the Longitudinal Survey of Immigrants to Australia (LSIA) conducted in 1995. Most immigrants in the survey have been interviewed a second time, starting in March of 1995 (approximately 18 months after arrival), and it is now possible to begin to assess what has happened to them over the first year and a half of the settlement process. The analysis is concerned with changes in immigrant labour market outcomes, and how these are related to, among other things, visa category, State/Territory of residence, age, gender, educational level, marital status, English language ability, and whether or not an immigrant visited Australia prior to migration. Extensive cross-tabulations are reported, and these results are supplemented with regression analysis.
