A Reconsideration of the Income Differences Found between Migrants and Northern-Born Blacks
Lieberson, Stanley
American Journal of Sociology, 83, 4, 940-66, Jan 78
Examines empirical evidence of two explanations for income and other work-related differences between southern-born Blacks living in the north and northern-born Blacks. It is hypothesized that migration to the north occurs in Blacks who are most likely to succeed, and that fundamental personality or cultural differences exist between southern and northern Blacks.
