Immigrant Incorporation and Political Participation in the United States.
Ramakrishnan, S. Karthick; Espenshade, Thomas J.
International Migration Review, v35 n3 p870-909 Fall 2001
Examines factors related to immigrant incorporation and voting participation, adding immigrant-related variables to a model controlling for individual resources, social incorporation, institutional barriers, and contexts of political mobilization. Current Population Survey data indicate that there is little support for straight-line assimilationist theories of immigrant adaptation and little applicability of such theories across immigrant generations and racial/ethnic groups.
