New York City immigrants: the 1990s wave

Abstract: Fueled by a steady influx of immigrants, New York City's population turnover in the 1990s was almost double the average for the nation's 100 largest cities. A close look at the city's new foreign-born residents suggests that they are a very diverse group, showing marked differences in education level, English language fluency, and other characteristics that help determine labor market skills and performance.

Keywords: Immigrants - New York (N.Y.); Labor market - New York (N.Y.);
