Occupational Attainment within Latino Enclaves

The inter ethnic competition hypotheses (HI a and H2a), based on queuing theory suggest that members of the dominant enclave group will exhibit higher levels of occupational attainment than other immigrants. The interethnic cooperation hypotheses (Hlb and H2b), based on segmented assimilation theory suggests that occupational attainment will not vary significantly between different country of origin groups, once year of entry, self-employment, household characteristics and human capital are controlled for.
