Determinants of English Proficiency among Mexican Migrants to the United States.
Espinosa, Kristin E.; Massey, Douglas S.
International Migration Review, v31 n1 p28-50 Spr 1997
Replicates prior research into the determinants of English language proficiency among immigrants using a dataset that controls for potential biases stemming from selective emigration, omitted variables, and the mismeasurement of key constructs. It finds that English proficiency rises with exposure to U.S. society and that a pattern exists in language assimilation among Mexican migrants to the United States. (GR)
