Measure of Immigrant Integration 2 / 17
Introduction Measure Data Main Results
Goal
To propose a standard measure of integration, defined as the
degree to which immigrants have the knowledge and the
capacity to achieve success in their host society.
Measure of Immigrant Integration 3 / 17
Introduction Measure Data Main Results
Why did we lack a standard measure?
Integration is an essentially contested concept
Many country specific measures
Field dominated by qualitative researchers
Measure of Immigrant Integration 4 / 17
Introduction Measure Data Main Results
Criteria for a useful measure:
Construct validity
Clear directionality
No presumption that the cultural repertoires of the dominant
group(s) in the host society are a model for integration more
Can be successfully employed across societies and over time
Can be administered through different media (phone; internet;
face-to-face survey)
Can be answered by all subjects (i.e. no missing data)
Face validity
Measure of Immigrant Integration 5 / 17
Introduction Measure Data Main Results
Research process
Review of more than 50 surveys on integration more
Selecting more than 200 questions with the potential to
differentiate between high and low integration
Trying to focus on questions that are also relevant in other
research fields (i.e. political efficacy, social capital)
Searching for a limited number of dimensions where there are
expectations of differential rates of integration progress.

Introduction Measure Data Main Results
Surveys strategy
Early samples to cull down our questions starting with around
60 with the goal of 12
Administer using different samples and medium of delivery to
adjust ease of administration
Matrices don’t work for those not adept on computers
Acquiescence bias is problematic
Knowledge of household income is not common in some
populations
In final pre-tests, assure maximum difference in predicted
integration success through an approach "Contrasted Groups"
to assure Construct Validity.

The road ahead
Seek "buy in" from state statistical bureaus and sociological
researchers that would permit "cumulative knowledge".
Initiate or ally with government agencies seeking to promote
integration so that we can run RCT’s on their programs.

Is this relevant for Estonia?
No significant immigration since the restoration of statehood
in 1991.
But many of the Russian-speaking population have immigrant
roots coming in the Soviet period.
Question A: How well are they integrating, and where in society
are the successes and where the failures?
Question B: Are the predictions in Laitin (1998) that Estonia and
Latvia would be integration successes (compared to the other
former Soviet Union Republics) upheld?
