Immigrant selection systems and immigrant health by Barry R Chiswick( )

4 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 31 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper is an analysis of the determinants of self-reported health status of immigrants, with a particular focus on type of visa used to gain admission. The concept of health capitalʺ and an immigrant selection and adjustment model are employed. The empirical analysis uses the three waves of the Longitudinal Survey of Immigrants to Australia (panel I). Immigrant health is greater for immigrants who are younger, more educated, male, more proficient in English, and living outside of an immigrant ethnic enclave. Immigrant health is poorest for refugees and best for independent (economic) migrants, and declines with duration in the destination. There is, therefore, evidence for favorable selectivity on the basis of health status among family and especially independent migrants, as well as a tendency toward regression to the meanʺ with duration in the destination

Immigrants' language skills and visa category by Barry R Chiswick( Book )

8 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 24 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper is concerned with the determinants of English language proficiency among immigrants in a longitudinal survey for Australia. It focuses on both visa category and variables derived from an economic model of the determinants of destination language proficiency among immigrants. Skills tested and economic immigrants have the greatest proficiency shortly after immigration, followed by family-based visa recipients, with refugees having the lowest proficiency. These differences disappear by 3 1/2 years after immigration for speaking skills, but they persist for reading and writing skills. The variables generated from the model of destination language proficiency are in part predictions of visa category and are more important statistically for explaining proficiency. The effects of some variables on language skills increase with duration in these longitudinal data. In particular, the efficiency variable, age, and gender, which may be reflecting differences in labor market attachment, increase in importance over time
Training in the youth labour market in Australia by Paul W Miller( Book )

4 editions published in 1987 in English and held by 24 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Data from the Australian Longitudinal Survey indicate that about 70 per cent of the youth labour force received some form of training during 1985. Indirect evidence on the per capita expenditure on job training derived from human capital models of wage determination suggest, however, that the annual outlay on training is quite small. This evidence is consistent with employer sourced information presented in the Williams Report. Because industrial training is generally presumed to be a major determinant of a country's international competitiveness, the apparent lack of training in the Australian labour market is of major importance to manpower program planning
