"Do Tied Movers Matter: The effect of home country gender status on the labor market success of immigrants. / Being Tied Matter?: The effect of home country gender status on the educational selectivity of tied and untied female immigrants"

Grant in Aid of Research

Final Report: "In fall 2012, I received The Research Council Funds ($400) and it was spent to pay some part of air plane ticket for SSHA (Social Science History Association) Conference at Vancouver, Canada. I presented my two research papers at the conference. The first paper is about the labor market success of immigrants, "Do Tied Movers Matter?: The effect of Home Country Gender Status on the Labor Market Success of Immigrant," in the Economic Session. The second paper is about self-selection of immigrants, "Being Tied Matter? : The Effect of Home-Country Gender Status on the Educational Selectivity of Tied and Untied Female Immigrants," in the Migration session. In order to publish a paper in a peer-reviewed academic journal, it is important for me to get professional and scholarly critics and comments from other academics. I deeply appreciate the fund from Research Council at UWGB. Research Grant from UWGB was critical to the progress of my project in that it helps me to participate SSHA conference where scholars and practitioners facilitate scholarly exchange and deepen the understanding of broad social sciences such as economics, history, sociology and demography."
