Abstract

America’s demographics are changing; by 2065 one in three may be an immigrant. What to these changing demographics mean for American society? In new research Andrea Gómez Cervantes and ChangHwan Kim look at the effects of immigrants’ skin color on their employment opportunities. They find that for male immigrants, darker skin has a negative effect on employment, but found no effect for women. They suggest that assimilation of immigrants into the US has become segmented by gender, race, and skin color.
