Explaining Immigrant Naturalization.
Yang, Philip Q.
International Migration Review, v28 n3 p449-77 Fall 1994
Proposes a broad analytical framework in the study of immigrant naturalization that incorporates an immigrant's individual characteristics with the larger social contexts in the country of origin and the country of destination to explain the likelihood of citizenship acquisition. Results testing of this framework show that such considerations are predictors of immigrant adaptation. (GLR)
