Economic, social and civic contributions of first and second generation humanitarian entrants /

by Hugo, Graeme | Australia. Department of Immigration and Citizenship. Policy nnovation, Research and Evaluation Unit.

Publisher: Canberra, A.C.T. Australia. Department of Immigration and Citizenship 2011Description: xxvi, 322 p.: ill., charts.Other title: The Hugo report.Online Access: Electronic copy Summary: People who arrive under Australia?s Humanitarian Program display considerable personal courage, often having overcome extraordinary hardship and traumatic situations. While there are costs involved in resettling refugees, they bring significant benefits to Australia. ; This research therefore seeks to answer the question: what are the economic, social and civic contributions to Australia of first and second generation Humanitarian Program entrants? It involves analysis of Census data, interviews with families and in-depth discussions with organisations such as employment, education and refugee service providers. ; The research found the overwhelming picture, when one takes the longer term perspective of changes over the working lifetime of Humanitarian Program entrants and their children, is one of considerable achievement and contribution. ; The Humanitarian Program yields a demographic dividend because of a low rate of settler loss, relatively high fertility rate and a high proportion of children who are likely to work the majority of their lives in Australia. It finds evidence of increasing settlement in non-metropolitan areas which creates social and economic benefits for local communities. ; Humanitarian entrants help meet labour shortages, including in low skill and low paid occupations. They display strong entrepreneurial qualities compared with other migrant groups, with a higher than average proportion engaging in small and medium business enterprises. ; Humanitarian settlers also benefit the wider community through developing and maintaining economic linkages with their origin countries. In addition, they make significant contributions through volunteering in both the wider community and within their own community groups. ; The research provides valuable insight for all organisations that assist with and plan for the settlement of Humanitarian Program entrants and seek to enhance their contributions to Australian society.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (2).

Educational Mismatch : are high-skilled immigrants really working at high-skilled jobs and the price they pay if they aren't? /

by Chiswick, Barry R | Institute for the Study of Labor | Miller, Paul W.

Publisher: Bonn, Germany Institute for the Study of Labor 2009Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: INTO AND OUT OF WORKSummary: This paper examines the incidence of the mismatch of the educational attainment and the occupation of employment, and the impact of this mismatch on the earnings, of high-skilled adult male immigrants in the US labor market. Analyses for high-skilled adult male native-born workers are also presented for comparison purposes. The results show that over-education is widespread in the high-skilled US labor market, both for immigrants and the native born. The extent of over-education declines with duration in the US as high-skilled immigrants obtain jobs commensurate with their educational level. Years of schooling that are above that which is usual for a worker's occupation are associated with very low increases in earnings. Indeed, in the first 10 to 20 years in the US years of over-education among high-skilled workers have a negative effect on earnings. This ineffective use of surplus education appears across all occupations and high-skilled education levels. Although schoolin! g serves as a pathway to occupational attainment, earnings appear to be more closely linked to a worker's occupation than to the individual's level of schooling.Availability: (1)
