Citizenship, College Degrees, and Occupational Outcomes: Comparison of Latino Immigrants and U.S. Natives at the Turn of the Century
Flores, Stella; Southern, Kyle G.
Journal of Hispanic Higher Education, v9 n1 p22-42 2010
Using data from the American Community Survey of the U.S. Census from 2000 to 2007, we analyze the occupational distribution of Latino immigrants and their associated prestige ranking by degree status in comparison with U.S.-born Latinos. We find dramatic gaps in the occupational distribution and prestige rankings among Latinos with similar postsecondary attainment levels by citizenship status. (Contains 3 tables, 1 figure and 2 notes.)
