Immigrant Earnings Differentials and Cohort Effects in Canada
This paper examines what has happened to immigrant earnings in Canada and test two alternative hypotheses of Chiswick and Borjas re changing immigrant earnings differentials. The paper use a 1973 survey containing detailed information on immigrant status, family background, and a direct measure of work experience. It is found that earning differentials of immigrant men have been widening since later 1960's. This is due to a steepening of earning profiles for native workers, a flattening of the years-since-migration earnings profile for immigrants, and a further flattening of the experience-earnings profile for immigrants.
