The role of labor market institutions in the impact of immigration on wages and employment

Abstract: We collect 1,030 previously estimated wage effects and 432 employment effects of immigration, and we document that the mean and median effects on the relative wage are negative and significantly different from the small positive mean and median effects on the average wage. The pattern is reversed for employment effects where the magnitudes are also smaller. Combining the effect sizes with measures of labor market institutions, we find that institutions might shield native workers from relative wage consequences but reduce the average wage effect of immigration. We do not detect a significant and robust association for the employment effects.
