The Incomes of Recent Immigrants: A Look at Ethnic Differences.
Koch, James V.
Social Science Quarterly, v68 n2 p294-310 Jun 1987
Examines family income differentials which existed among 18 different ethnic groups that immigrated to the United States between 1970 and 1980. Family size and fertility, education levels, labor force participation, geographic location, facility with English, and what Sowell has termed the "cultural inheritance" of an ethnic group are revealed as important determinants of immigrant incomes.
