Immigration in a changing economy : California's experience by Kevin F McCarthy( )

9 editions published between 1997 and 1998 in English and held by 1,806 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

California and its economy continue to draw benefits from immigration. However, a combination of much larger immigration flows and major changes in the state's economic environment have increased the costs of immigration, and unless current policies with regard to immigration and immigrants are changed, the benefits the state currently receives from immigrants may not continue. International immigration to California has steadily increased over the past 30 years and has profoundly affected the state's population and economy. Some observers of these changes are seeing the extreme diversity of California's population as the harbinger of where the nation is headed in the long term. For others, California has become the symbol of a major backlash against immigrants and immigration. How has California benefited from immigration? What impact have immigrants had on the state's job market? How have they affected the demand for federal and state services? What has been their educational and economic progress since their arrival? This book is the culmination of a comprehensive study of how immigration has changed over the past three decades. It assesses the impact immigration has had on the state's demography, economy, people, and institutions, with lessons to be drawn for other states, the nation, and even other countries
Diverting children from a life of crime : measuring costs and benefits by Peter W Greenwood( )

8 editions published between 1996 and 1998 in English and held by 1,755 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In combating crime in America, little attention has been paid to keeping children from becoming criminals. What benefit might be realized from such an approach, and at what cost? Working from limited data on program efficacy and on criminal careers, the authors of this report made rough estimates of the costs and benefits of four early interventions--prenatal home visits by child care professionals, followed by four years of day care; training for parents with young children who have shown aggressive behavior; incentives to induce disadvantaged high-school students to graduate; and monitoring and supervising young delinquents. All except the first appeared to be at least as cost-effective as a popular but very different approach to crime reduction--California's "three-strikes" law. The advantages of parent training and graduation incentives in particular are so large that some advantage is likely to be found even under assumptions differing substantially from those made here.

The coming wave of violence in California by Allan F Abrahamse( Book )

3 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 149 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This documented briefing, originally given at the June 1996 meeting of the Homicide Research Working Group, explores the question of whether California faces an impending wave of violence from its increasing number of young people. The future depends on a key uncertainty: will children of coming generations be more violent than today's adolescents? A pessimistic assumption is that children born from 1977 on will face age-specific homicide arrest rates 3 percent higher than the preceding year's birth cohort. A more optimistic future assumes arrest rates will decline by 1 percent in each successive birth cohort, so that the year 2021 will have a 14 percent decrease in homicide arrest rate. A nominal assumption is that each cohort will have an age-specific arrest rate that is about 1 percent higher than the preceding cohort. In the latter case, California's homicide arrest rate in 2021 will be about 28 percent higher than it is today. The key finding is that what lies in store of California depends on the upbringing of young Californians today and tomorrow
Out-of-school immigrant youth by Laura E Hill( Book )

2 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 71 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Immigrant youth who do not attend schools in the United States fare poorly on many standard measures of well-being, such as educational attainment, English language ability, earnings, health insurance coverage, and poverty status. Most federal and state dollars spent on youth do not reach these young people because the dollars go through educational institutions they do not attend. If policymakers wish to improve the well-being of this very vulnerable young immigrant population, traditional school systems are not likely to be a place to reach them. A federal program, the Migrant Education program (MEP), aims to serve out-of-school immigrant youth as a part of its mission, as do a few local and state programs. This report describes the population of out-of-school immigrant youth in California and the subset of this group served by MEP. The report uses census data to describe this population and then turns to program data from two regions in California's Migrant Education Program. these data not only help us understand educational backgrounds, socioeconomic needs, and academic goals more thoroughly than do the census data, but they also help us understand how the populations in the two regions may differ. Analyses of these data also lead us to suggest some changes to MEP for out-of-school immigrant youth, such as ways to target services, improve future data collection, and enhance program organization

The mixed economic progress of immigrants by Robert F Schoeni( )

2 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 15 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the midst of large increases in immigration, a relative deterioration in the level of education of immigrants, and slow employment growth, the question of how immigrants perform and progress economically in the United States has once more become salient. This report addresses this question in several unique ways. First, it examines in detail the differences in the rate of economic progress of immigrants from different countries of origin (rather than for all immigrants as a whole) and identifies the reasons for these differences. Second, and for the first time, it assesses whether the economic progress of recent immigrants is slower than that of previous generations of immigrants. Finally, it assesses the economic progress of immigrants in California separately from that of those in the rest of the nation, because, at 26 percent, the share of immigrants in California's labor force is more than three times higher than that in the rest of the United States

The costs of immigration to taxpayers : analytical and policy issues by Georges Vernez( )

2 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 13 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Because of recent rapid growth in the number of immigrants, their high concentration in a few states, and a lagging economy that has slowed the growth in public revenues, two questions have received considerable analytical and political attention in recent years: (1) do immigrants contribute more to public revenues than they receive in benefits from public services? and (2) do state and local governments pay a disproportionate share of the cost of services used by immigrants? This report reviews the estimates of the net fiscal costs of immigration made by several recent and well publicized studies of immigration at the national, state, and local levels. The authors find that these studies do not provide a reliable estimate of the net fiscal costs of immigration. Moreover, new data and agreement on a uniform accounting framework will be needed to reach a definitive answer to the policy questions about the costs of immigration

Campus computing 1993 : the USC national survey of desktop computing in higher education by Kenneth C Green( Book )

2 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 12 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A national survey of desktop computing in higher education was conducted in spring and summer 1993 at over 2500 institutions. Data were responses from public and private research universities, public and private four-year colleges and community colleges. Respondents (n=1011) were individuals specifically responsible for the operation and future direction of academic computing on their campuses. Among key findings were: (1) institutions appear to want software and information technology resources to support instruction primarily software developed by outside sources; (2) nearly half of institutions provide some assistance to help faculty develop technology-based instructional resources but only 15 percent reward or provide incentive to faculty who do develop software; (3) the proportion of campuses reporting budget cuts in computing activities continues to decline from 31 percent in 1992 and 36 percent in 1991 to 28 percent in 1993; (4) there has been a clear shift to '486-based systems in the IBM/compatible domain; (5) expanding campus computing networks remains a top institutional priority; and (6) the proportion of students and faculty who own computers continues to rise slowly across all sectors. Also included are the survey data and appendixes detailing study methodology, the survey form, and a list of participating institutions. (Jb)
