Gurak, Douglas T.; Kritz, Mary M.
Social Forces, v78 n3 p1017-39 Mar 2000
Analysis of the 1990 Public Use Microdata Sample indicates that interstate migration during 1985-90 was less common for immigrant men than for non-Hispanic, White, native-born men. This difference was most strongly related to human capital factors (age, education, self-employment), followed by social capital factors (nativity group concentration) and state economic factors.
