Immigrants Assimilate as Communities, Not Just as Individuals
By Timothy J. Hatton, Andrew Leigh
Institute for the Study of Labor, Discussion Paper 2538, January 2007
http://ftp.iza.org/dp2538.pdf

Abstract: There is a large econometric literature that examines the economic assimilation of

immigrants in the United States and elsewhere. On the whole immigrants are seen as atomistic

individuals assimilating in a largely anonymous labour market, a view that runs counter to the

spirit of the equally large literature on ethnic groups. Here we argue that immigrants assimilate

as communities, not just as individuals. The longer the immigrant community has been established

the better adjusted it is to the host society and the more the host society comes to accept that

ethnic group. Thus economic outcomes for immigrants should depend not just on their own

characteristics, but also on the legacy of past immigration from the same country. In this paper

we test this hypothesis using data from a 5 percent sample of the 1980, 1990 and 2000 US

censuses. We find that history matters in immigrant assimilation: the stronger is the tradition

of immigration from a given source country, the better t! he economic outcomes
for new immigrants from that source.
