Transcript

  • 1. Immigration By: Matthew Patrick
  • 2. Last 3 Decades
    • Over the last three decades, a large number of immigrants have arrived in the United States.
    • Papers analyze there is a change in patterns of immigration, mainly in its gender dynamics.
    • Immigrants have been finding their way to the U.S in search of better jobs, life, education, and to live the American dream.
    • Historically, immigrant communities have been seen as transitory places and immigrants as subjects of the acculturation project.
  • 3. OVERLOAD
  • 4. Background
    • While the magnitude of immigration is a major focus of current policy debates, in this article, I pay special attention to the issue of gender as it affects immigrants.
    • Among immigrants 25 years and older who arrived in the 1990s, women made up 50.4% of the population (U.S. Census Bureau, 2004).
    • Over 27% of these women had a bachelor’s degree or higher.
  • 5. EDUCATION
  • 6. Growth In Migration
    • The increase in the number 20-64 year-old with a foreign background is partly caused by the inflow of immigrants and their children and grandchildren.
    • Around 2030 an expected 38 thousand non-western immigrants will arrive in the Netherlands yearly, while just over 20 thousand will leave the country.
    • The number of western immigrants will increase strongly to 57 thousand in 2030. Many western immigrants come for work.
  • 7. Chart Of Migration
  • 8. Housing Issues
    • Between 1990 and 2000, while the U.S. population grew by 37.2 million people, the foreign-born population increased by 11.3 million, from 19.8 to 31.1 million (U.S. Census Bureau, 1990 and 2000).
    • Given that a majority of the foreign-born population is working age, proportionally, it generates a higher demand for housing than the native-born population.
    • I n a recent report, Pitkin (2002) validated this finding by illustrating that 12 million housing units were occupied by foreign-born individuals in 2000.
  • 9. Crowded Housing
  • 10. Gender Make A Difference!
    • among the non-citizen group, not only do renters outnumber owners for both men and women, renting exceeds owning by 1.6 times for men and 2.4 times for women.
    • renting exceeds owning by 1.6 times for men and 2.4 times for women.
    • Female households are more likely to live in rental housing units then then males.
    • Immigrants Women with a 4 year or more college degree are more likely to own houses instead of renting then Men.
  • 11. Gender Rankings
