Earnings Assimilation Within and Across Immigrant Generations: Evidence from Administrative Records

     When:  10/21/2022, 12:30-1:30 PM PT
     Where:  101 Hans Rosling Center

Join us for a talk from Professor Andrés Villarreal titled “Earnings Assimilation within and across Immigrant Generations: Evidence from Administrative Records.

The systematic study of immigrants’ economic assimilation requires an analysis of both intra- and intergenerational mobility, that is, of the progress made by each immigrant generation over the course of their own lives and relative to their parents. We examine both types of mobility using a unique dataset linking respondents of multiple waves of the Current Population Survey to their longitudinal tax records.


If you would like to meet one-on-one with Dr. Villarreal, you may sign up to do so by including your name in this Google doc by 5pm, Wednesday!
