Socioeconomic dualism: the case of Israeli-born immigrants in the United States

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Relying on the 1980 US Census of Foreign-Born Population and the 1979 INS Public Use File, this article compares Israeli-born Americans to both the United States and Israeli populations with respect to age, marital status, unemployment, education, industry, occupation and income as of 1979-90. Some of the results, mainly those pertaining to the demographic and socioeconomic characteristics of Israeli immigrants as compared to their society of origin, corroborate previous research. The Census data reveal occupational and economic dualism among the population of Israeli-born Americans, the reasons for this are discussed. -from Author
