The employment adjustment of male immigrants in England

Journal of Population Economics, 2001, vol. 14, issue 1, 193-220

Abstract: In this paper the employment performance of native and foreign born men in England is examined, using 1993-1994 data from the Quarterly Labour Force Survey of the United Kingdom. Chiswick's (1982) hypotheses of immigrant employment adjustment are investigated using logistic regression analysis. We show that there are interesting and important employment effects arising from immigrant characteristics. Recent white immigrants experience a transitory employment disadvantage. However non-white immigrants never attain employment equality with native born white men. Education, potential experience, family characteristics and country of birth are also found to be important determinants of employment.
