Immigration in a changing economy : California's experience by Kevin F McCarthy( Book )

8 editions published between 1997 and 1998 in English and held by 322 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Steadily increasing immigration to California over the past thirty years has profoundly affected the state. Some observers of these changes see the extreme diversity of California's population as the harbinger of where the nation is headed in the long term. Others see California as the symbol of a major backlash against immigrants and immigration. How has California benefited from immigration? What impact have immigrants had on the state's job market? How have they affected the demand for federal and state services? What has been their education and economic progress since their arrival? This book summarizes the findings of a comprehensive study fully documented in Immigration in a Changing Economy: California's Experience, by Kevin F. McCarthy and Georges Vernez. Using a question-and-answer framework, it discusses the impact immigration has had on the state's demography, economy, people, and institutions, drawing lessons for California's future as well as for other states and the nation
The coming wave of violence in California by Allan F Abrahamse( Book )

3 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 134 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This documented briefing, originally given at the June 1996 meeting of the Homicide Research Working Group, explores the question of whether California faces an impending wave of violence from its increasing number of young people. The future depends on a key uncertainty: will children of coming generations be more violent than today's adolescents? A pessimistic assumption is that children born from 1977 on will face age-specific homicide arrest rates 3 percent higher than the preceding year's birth cohort. A more optimistic future assumes arrest rates will decline by 1 percent in each successive birth cohort, so that the year 2021 will have a 14 percent decrease in homicide arrest rate. A nominal assumption is that each cohort will have an age-specific arrest rate that is about 1 percent higher than the preceding cohort. In the latter case, California's homicide arrest rate in 2021 will be about 28 percent higher than it is today. The key finding is that what lies in store of California depends on the upbringing of young Californians today and tomorrow
Diverting children from a life of crime : measuring costs and benefits by Peter W Greenwood( Book )

7 editions published between 1996 and 1998 in English and held by 121 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In combating crime in America, little attention has been paid to keeping children from becoming criminals. What benefit might be realized from such an approach, and at what cost? Working from limited data on program efficacy and on criminal careers, the authors of this report made rough estimates of the costs and benefits of four early interventions--prenatal home visits by child care professionals, followed by four years of day care; training for parents with young children who have shown aggressive behavior; incentives to induce disadvantaged high-school students to graduate; and monitoring and supervising young delinquents. All except the first appeared to be at least as cost-effective as a popular but very different approach to crime reduction--California's "three-strikes" law. The advantages of parent training and graduation incentives in particular are so large that some advantage is likely to be found even under assumptions differing substantially from those made here.

Out-of-school immigrant youth by Laura E Hill( Book )

2 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 66 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Immigrant youth who do not attend schools in the United States fare poorly on many standard measures of well-being, such as educational attainment, English language ability, earnings, health insurance coverage, and poverty status. Most federal and state dollars spent on youth do not reach these young people because the dollars go through educational institutions they do not attend. If policymakers wish to improve the well-being of this very vulnerable young immigrant population, traditional school systems are not likely to be a place to reach them. A federal program, the Migrant Education program (MEP), aims to serve out-of-school immigrant youth as a part of its mission, as do a few local and state programs. This report describes the population of out-of-school immigrant youth in California and the subset of this group served by MEP. The report uses census data to describe this population and then turns to program data from two regions in California's Migrant Education Program. these data not only help us understand educational backgrounds, socioeconomic needs, and academic goals more thoroughly than do the census data, but they also help us understand how the populations in the two regions may differ. Analyses of these data also lead us to suggest some changes to MEP for out-of-school immigrant youth, such as ways to target services, improve future data collection, and enhance program organization

Campus computing 1993 : the USC national survey of desktop computing in higher education by Kenneth C Green( Book )

2 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A national survey of desktop computing in higher education was conducted in spring and summer 1993 at over 2500 institutions. Data were responses from public and private research universities, public and private four-year colleges and community colleges. Respondents (n=1011) were individuals specifically responsible for the operation and future direction of academic computing on their campuses. Among key findings were: (1) institutions appear to want software and information technology resources to support instruction primarily software developed by outside sources; (2) nearly half of institutions provide some assistance to help faculty develop technology-based instructional resources but only 15 percent reward or provide incentive to faculty who do develop software; (3) the proportion of campuses reporting budget cuts in computing activities continues to decline from 31 percent in 1992 and 36 percent in 1991 to 28 percent in 1993; (4) there has been a clear shift to '486-based systems in the IBM/compatible domain; (5) expanding campus computing networks remains a top institutional priority; and (6) the proportion of students and faculty who own computers continues to rise slowly across all sectors. Also included are the survey data and appendixes detailing study methodology, the survey form, and a list of participating institutions. (Jb)

Campus computing 1992 : the EDUCOM-USC survey of desktop computing in higher education by Kenneth C Green( Book )

1 edition published in 1993 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A national survey of desktop computing in higher education was conducted in 1992 of 2500 institutions. Data were responses from public and private research universities, public and private four-year colleges, and community colleges. Respondents (n=970) were individuals specifically responsible for the operation and future direction of academic computing on their campuses. Among key findings were (1) 31 percent of campuses reported a decline in overall academic computing budgets for 1992-93 and 25.1 percent reported a mid-year budget cut; (2) there was a clear movement towards generic '386 and '486 systems among campuses that recommend ibm compatible products and the proportion of campuses encouraging campus buyers to purchase '486 systems tripled from the previous year; (3) ms-dos retained its position as leading operating system for desktop computers on campuses; (4) expanding the campus computer network continued to be a top institutional priority; (5) 59.9 percent of campuses have a code of conduct for software use and duplication and another 21.5 percent have a code of conduct under development; and (6) there was an increase in the proportion of students who own personal computers: up to 20.5 percent from 16.5 percent 2 years ago. Also included are the survey data and appendixes with study methodology, the survey form, and a list of participating institutions. (Jb)

The mixed economic progress of immigrants by Robert F Schoeni( )

1 edition published in 1996 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Japanese, Korean, and Chinese immigrants enter with wages much lower than native-born workers', their wages increase rapidly, reaching parity within 10 to 15 years. Europeans enter with wages similar to natives' and continue to earn comparable wages. In contrast, Mexican immigrants enter with very low wages and experience a persistent wage gap. Although education is a powerful predictor of earnings and explains some of the disparities in earnings, a substantial difference still exists in earnings profiles between certain immigrant groups and those of native-born workers after differences in education have been adjusted for. Whereas educational attainment may influence the level of earnings at a particular point in time, and it may also enhance the rate of growth of earnings over an immigrant's lifetime, the findings from the study were mixed. Finally, the rate of wage growth has not accelerated for any immigrant groups

The costs of immigration to taxpayers : analytical and policy issues by Georges Vernez( )

2 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Because of recent rapid growth in the number of immigrants, their high concentration in a few states, and a lagging economy that has slowed the growth in public revenues, two questions have received considerable analytical and political attention in recent years: (1) do immigrants contribute more to public revenues than they receive in benefits from public services? and (2) do state and local governments pay a disproportionate share of the cost of services used by immigrants? This report reviews the estimates of the net fiscal costs of immigration made by several recent and well publicized studies of immigration at the national, state, and local levels. The authors find that these studies do not provide a reliable estimate of the net fiscal costs of immigration. Moreover, new data and agreement on a uniform accounting framework will be needed to reach a definitive answer to the policy questions about the costs of immigration
