Tipping and the Effects of Segregation
Stockholm University, Faculty of Social Sciences, The Swedish Institute for Social Research (SOFI).
2020 (English)In: American Economic Journal: Applied Economics, ISSN 1945-7782, E-ISSN 1945-7790, Vol. 12, no 1, p. 318-347Article in journal (Refereed) Published
Abstract [en]

We analyze how neighborhood ethnic population composition affects the short- and long-run education and labor market outcomes of natives and immigrants. To overcome the problem of nonrandom sorting across neighborhoods, we borrow theoretical insights from the tipping point literature and exploit estimated tipping thresholds as instruments for changes in ethnic population composition. Our results provide little evidence in support of the idea that living in a neighborhood with a higher immigrant share leads to worse outcomes.
