Assimilation and discrimination effects among the UK migrant labour force
This paper analyses the performance of foreign born male individuals on the British labour market. Using data from the Quarterly Labour Force Survey over the period 1992-2009, we find consistent evidence of positive economic assimilation of immigrants, with their labour market outcomes improving with duration of stay in the country. We also find that the performance of individuals who came to the UK to complete their education is significantly higher than that experienced by labour market entrants.
