Language and the Earnings of Immigrants.
Dustmann, Christian; van Soest, Arthur
Industrial and Labor Relations Review, v55 n3 p473-92 Apr 2002
Analysis of panel data on immigrants to Germany 1984-94 focused on the relationship of language proficiency and productivity. Results show how time-varying measurement errors can lead to downward bias on the effect of fluency on earnings. Language proficiency is thus far more important than studies have suggested.
