Abstract:The integration of the children of immigrants ‐ both those born in the host country ("second generation") and those who arrived young enough to be educated in the host country ‐ is of growing policy relevance for OECD countries. This group is entering the labour market in ever‐larger numbers. Since these children of immigrants have been raised and educated in the host country, their outcomes are often seen as the "benchmark" for successful integration policy. Concern over labour market integration is particularly pertinent for those children whose parents were low‐educated.
