Migrant human capital and skills

Human capital is referred to as the stock of habits, knowledge, social and personality attributes and skills that are embodied in an individual’s ability to perform labor and thus to produce economic value. The (non-)movement and transfer of human capital may have an influence on the sending and/or receiving context.

The studies listed under this topic include literature on human capital accumulation, the relationship between social capital, human capital and employment, brain circulation, wage and gender gaps, labor market inequalities, and (international) transferability of human capital.

Dynamic Modeling of Labor Market Mobility and Human Capital Accumulation

Year 2018
Taxonomy View Taxonomy Associations
Abstract
In today’s globalized world, labor mobility is at the core of the political debate and a centerpiece for economic policy. The design of migration policies, such as selective, skill-biased, immigration policies, policies to encourage the integration of immigrants, or ones that facilitate geographical mobility to increase labor market opportunities of disadvantaged workers, requires a good understanding of a more fundamental issue: understanding the role of internal migration and immigration in shaping the career paths and human capital accumulation of workers. This project aims at providing a coherent analysis that allows us to understand the interactions between labor mobility and human capital accumulation, and their implications for economic policy design. This project focuses on three main issues: labor mobility, labor market effects of immigration, and the interaction between the two. Our questions are: (a) What are the role of temporary and permanent contracts in shaping career paths and geographic mobility of workers? (b) Does the forgone human capital accumulation during a recession produce a lost generation? Is this alleviated by geographical mobility? (c) What is the role of geographical and occupational mobility in spreading or containing the effects of technological progress on wage inequality? (d) To what extent selective immigration policies maximize native workers’ prospects and wellbeing? (e) How can we increase degree of assimilation of immigrants? To address these questions, we will develop dynamic equilibrium models that explicitly characterize human capital accumulation decisions of workers and how these decisions interact with migration. Our proposed models will introduce rich labor market structures and a variety of economic shocks. They will require the implementation of novel estimation methods, which we will also develop. The estimated models will be used to evaluate and design key economic policies for the labor market.

Social interaction, human capital formation and wage convergence of immigrants

Year 2014
Taxonomy View Taxonomy Associations
Abstract
"The aim of this project is to augment the existing literature, both theoretically and empirically, with respect to the following aspects. First, our objective is to account for different channels shaping the assimilation process. In particular, we focus on the importance of social externalities (measured by average ethnic human capital at local residential area) and its behavioral implications on human capital investment. Second, we deviate from the standard wealth-maximization principle, assuming implicitly risk-neutral preferences. More specifically, we seek to model the importance of intertemporal consumption preferences on human capital accumulation decisions. Moreover, we examine how the role of social externalities varies under different preferences. Our main objective is, therefore, to address the following questions: How does social interaction, such as ethnic quality, influence immigrants’ labor market performance, both at entry and subsequent years? Do differences in intertemporal preferences play a role in the investment behavior and, in turn, the assimilation process? The theoretical predictions reveal that the impact of social externalities on immigrants’ economic performance is substantially affected by their preferences. The idea is that intertemporal preferences implicitly reflect individual risk attitudes, which may in turn affect importantly the decision behavior. To our knowledge there is no study that examines this aspect in the context of wage convergence. In addition, we will provide empirical evidence by using the new IAB-SOEP migration sample to estimate the investment behavior regarding language proficiency as well as general human capital acquisition in the host country. Moreover, linking the survey data to administrative data – Integrated Employment Biography (IEB) – allow us to observe the entire individual labor market history and thus to exploit the longitudinal dimension for testing the wage assimilation process. A preliminary inspection of the data shows that the average wage gap between immigrants and natives since arrival in Germany has declined by about 10 percentage points over the period 1998-2011, and that this decline was much stronger for immigrants with risk preferences close to neutrality."

Wittgenstein Centre population projections

Year 1970
Taxonomy View Taxonomy Associations
Abstract
Global population projections by age, sex and education published by Lutz, Butz, and K.C. (2014). World Population & Human Capital in the Twenty-first Century. Population projections of educational attainment by age and sex for 195 countries. The new set of projections by levels of educational attainment was produced by a large team of researchers at the Wittgenstein Centre for Demography and Global Human Capital and at other institutions. It also includes population projections developed for the 5th assessment report of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) according to a set of Shared Socioeconomic Pathways (SSP) scenarios. There are two main areas where the new projections advance the state of the art beyond other existing global population projections (those that cover most world countries): * They explicitly and systematically incorporate population heterogeneity by level of education, thereby illustrating how educational attainment can and should be routinely added to age and sex as a third demographic dimension. * The assumptions about future trends in fertility, mortality, and migration include the scientific input of more than 500 population experts around the world who responded to an online questionnaire and assessed the validity of alternative arguments as well as the conclusions of intensive discussions at five meta-expert meetings. Version 1.2 includes the back projections from 2010 to 1970. More information in Speringer et al. 2015.

Dynamic Wage Effects of Brain Gain and Brain Drain - Analyzing Changes in the Regional Concentration of High-Skilled Workers

Year 2015
Taxonomy View Taxonomy Associations
Abstract
There is a growing amount of literature investigating the wage effects of regional human capital. Up to now research concentrates on spillover effects generated by the regional stock of skilled workers (human capital externalities). We put a special focus on wage effects caused by the interregional in-migration (brain gain) and out-migration (brain drain) of skilled workers. We argue that the effects of incoming and outgoing migration streams might be asymmetric. On the one hand, an incoming migrant could increase the local diversity pool and therefore generate particularly large spillover effects. On the other hand, knowledge exchange is based on social networks. Assuming that incoming workers find comparable small networks at the beginning and outgoing workers leave comparable large networks, effects induced by brain gain might be smaller than effects generated by brain drain. The relative size is an empirical matter. We test these theoretical considerations with a large administrative German panel data set.
