Immigrant Inflows, Native Outflows, and the Local Labor Market Impacts of Higher Immigration

David Card

Journal of Labor Economics, 2001, vol. 19, issue 1, 22-64

Abstract: This article uses 1990 census data to study the effects of immigrant inflows on occupation-specific labor market outcomes. I find that intercity mobility rates of natives and earlier immigrants are insensitive to immigrant inflows. However, occupation-specific wages and employment rates are systematically lower in cities with higher relative supplies of workers in a given occupation. The results imply that immigrant inflows over the 1980s reduced wages and employment rates of low-skilled natives in traditional gateway cities like Miami and Los Angeles by 1-3 percentage points.
