One of the crucial questions on the long-term consequences of immigration is whether dis-advantages experienced by immigrants are transferred to their children. In this study I present the first evidence on occupational class attainment among second-generation immi-grants in by: 2. Occupational attainment is a scaled assessment of the socioeconomic status generally associated with each occupation. Occupations in which workers have the same average income and level of education have the same occupational attainment score: Higher-paying, scarcer jobs have higher occupational attainment scores than do those that are dirty, dangerous, common, and/or low-paying. .

Findings indicate that, on arrival, immigrants from a non-English speaking background face significant disadvantage in occupational attainment, particularly those from Asian countries.

Karas compares the earnings and occupational attainment of Chinese, Cuban, Filipino, Korean, and Mexican immigrants to those of foreign-born non-Hispanic whites. Using census data, she tests three models of attainment: a human and social capital model, a local labor market model, and a model combining human capital and local labor market indicators against a baseline ethnic heritage Author: Jennifer Karas.

Interestingly, most analytic models of immigrant socioeconomic attainment have not incorporated this complex reality. I address this shortcoming by exploring interactive models of the occupational attainment of West Indian immigrants, with emphasis on the role that education plays in.

Abstract. This paper examines the determinants of occupational attainment and the impact of occupation on earnings. Results for both the native born and foreign born are presented, and these provide insights as to the earnings penalties associated with the less-than-perfect international transferability of human capital by: OCCUPATIONAL ATTAINMENT OF LATINO IMMIGRANTS IN THE UNITED STATES STEPHANIE A.

BOHON ABSTRACT. Acquiring good jobs is vital for the economic success of immigrants, yet occu-pational attainment is understudied in the immigration literature. One particularly neglected aspect is the role of ethnicity in occupations beyond the ethnic niche. The findings show that occupational attainment varies considerably by country of origin across these areas, although important human and social capital factors also are significant variables.

These findings lend support to the proposition that, for immigrants, place of origin and destination play an important role in job‐queue by: Subscribe to the Center for Migration Studies Periodic updates and announcements on CMS research, events, and publications.; Subscribe to the Journal on Migration and Human Security Periodic article announcements and other updates from the Journal on Migration and Human Security, CMS's public policy publication.; Subscribe to the CMS Migration Update Weekly digest of news and other.
