Title The economics of Canadian citizenship
Author(s) Devoretz, Don J ; Pivnenko, Sergiy
Date 2004
Editor(s) Povrzanovic Frykman, Maja
Swedish abstract
Immigrants ascend to citizenship at differential rates in Canada. Why is this so? This paper investigates the economic costs and benefits derived from citizenship to rationalize the differential rates of citizenship ascension. Canadian earnings evidence confirms the sizable economic benefits of citizenship. A decomposition analysis attributes this benefit to selfselection, namely only the more productive immigrants become Canadian citizens.
