"Highly-skilled Black immigrants in low-skilled jobs: Implications for child poverty disparities in immigrant families."

Description:
This study examines the paradox reflected in the fact that despite Black immigrants high levels of schooling, their children have exceptionally high poverty rates. It uses the occupational dynamics of Black immigrants as a point of entry for investigating the paradox. As shown in previous studies, highly-educated Africans and other Black immigrants are more likely to work in low status jobs than other highly-skilled immigrants. In general, the analysis focuses on four specific goals. First, it examines the broad relationship between education-occupation mismatches among parents and child poverty. Second it examines whether or not this relationship mediates the poverty disadvantage of Black immigrants children. {Will appear in FYI on Oct 9, 2012
