Data from the 1990 U.S. Census on the effect of admission criteria on immigrant earnings profiles found that nonoccupation-based immigration, usually family-based, was associated with lower entry earnings but higher earnings growth than occupation-based immigration. Earnings became nearly equal after 11 to 18 years. (SLD)
