Chutes or Ladders? A Longitudinal Analysis of Immigrant Earnings

Darren Lubotsky

Working Papers from Princeton, Woodrow Wilson School - Development Studies

Abstract: This study uses Social Security earnings records matched to recent cross{sections of the SIPP and CPS to study the earnings progress of U.S. immigrants. The data show that immigrants' earnings grow 10 to 13 percent during their rst twenty years in the U.S. relative to the earnings of natives with similar labor market experience. By comparison, estimates of immigrants' relative wage growth from cross{sections of the decennial Census are substantially higher.
