Booknews
A study of labor market processes and outcomes of foreign-born persons in the US, looking at factors including unemployment, quit rates, job finding rates, and rates of leaving the labor force. A theoretical foundation for the study is built by combining immigration hypotheses and theories of labor turnover, prime among which are search models. Database used is a pooled cross-section time series assembled from various supplements to the Current Population Survey plus the 1976 Survey of Income and Education. There is special focus on components and causes of labor turnover of immigrants and how it impacts assimilation. Lacks a subject index. Distributed by Taylor and Francis. Annotation c.
