Abstract: Due to failed integration of immigrants from less developed countries (LDCs), and due to an increasing number of second generation immigrants from these countries, focus needs to be changed from mere integration to integration across generations. Studying the second generation of immigrants from LDCs, we find a striking difference in their educational distribution compared with the ethnic Danish youth. Having corrected for the difference in age distribution across the two groups, we find that the main determinants are found in the intergenerational transmission process. The parents of second generation immigrants have less human capital and the immigrants show as low intergenerational mobility as young ethnic Danes. Therefore, the total effect is slow integration across generations, and consequently, we expect slow convergence in the educational distributions.
