Labor Market Assimilation of Recent Immigrants in Spain

By Catalina Amuedo-Dorantes and Sara de la Rica
(October 2006)

This paper provides a preliminary analysis of the employment and occupational assimilation of recent immigrant waves to the Spanish labor market as their residencies lengthen. Using Spanish data from the 2001 Population Census and the 2002 Earnings Structure Survey, we find evidence of immigrant employment and occupational assimilation significantly varying by gender, origin and educational attainment.
