Using NCES Surveys to Understand the Experiences of Immigrant-Origin Students


"This paper examines the historic transformation of the United States into a new nation of immigrants along two narrative axes--diversity and inequality. In a sharply changing context, where arguably the value (and cost) of education is at a premium, official statistics are crucial to our ability to grasp the nature of the transformations under way. For a number of reasons, NCES longitudinal surveys are better positioned than most other sources of official data to provide critical information not otherwise collected by the major national datasets, such as the American Community Survey (ACS)."
