Neighborhood diversity and the appreciation of native and immigrant-owned homes /

by Cobb-Clark, Deborah A | Sinning, Mathias.

Publisher: Institute for the Study of Labour 2009Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Summary: This paper examines the effect of neighborhood diversity on the nativity gap in home-value appreciation in Australia. Specifically, immigrant homeowners experienced a 41.7 percent increase in median home values between 2001 and 2006, while the median value of housing owned by the native-born increased by 59.4 percent over the same period. We use a semi-parametric decomposition approach to assess the relative importance of the various determinants of home values in producing this gap. We find that the differential returns to housing wealth are not related to changes in the nature of the houses or the neighborhoods in which immigrants and native-born homeowners live. Rather, the gap stems from the fact that over time there were differential changes across groups in the hedonic prices (i.e., returns) associated with the underlying determinants of home values.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).

Oppositional Identities and employment for ethnic minorities : evidence from England /

by Battu, Harminder | Zenou, Yves.

Publisher: Bonn, Germany Institute for the Study of Labor 2009Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: IZA DP No. 4517 INTO AND OUT OF WORKSummary: Where a community or group is socially excluded from a dominant group, some individuals of that group may identify with the dominant culture and others may reject that culture. The aim of this paper is to investigate this issue by empirically analyzing the potential trade-off for ethnic minorities between sticking to their own roots and labour market success. We find that the social environment of individuals and attachments to culture of origin has a strong association with identity choice. Our results also suggest that those non-whites who have preferences that accord with being "oppositional" do experience an employment penalty.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).
