MPRA Paper from University Library of Munich, Germany
The main goal of this paper is to see the trends self-employment behavior of natives and immigrants living in the U.S. by focusing on different race and ethnic groups using the current population survey (CPS) data under a linear probability model framework. There are two main outcomes of this study. First, although the real income level of immigrants is decreasing over time, they still have the incentive to be self-employed as much as the natives. Second, the Oaxaca decomposition technique results show that there is a little difference between the average group characteristics of natives and immigrants.
