Hispanic and Asian Earnings Inequality: New Workers and Immigrants
- (pp. 442-46)
AbstractUsing confidential-use, individual-level Internal Revenue Service and US Census data, we follow the earnings of Hispanics and Asians between the ages of 18–45 with panel data that spans the years 2005–2014. These two groups represent the largest immigration flows in recent years. We examine the impact that labor market entrants and new immigrant arrivals within each group have on group earnings inequality. We show that labor market entrants and immigrants increase inequality for both groups.
