Lu and Neeraj Kaushal will complete a study comparing immigrant selection and assimilation in Canada and the U.S. Their research will systematically assess the relative selection of immigrants to these countries with respect to levels of education, host country language proficiency, and initial earnings. They will further examine the relative economic well-being of immigrants in these two countries after adjusting for different levels of immigrant selection. They will examine how these trends have shifted since 1990.
