Economic and cultural effects of living in an immigrant enclave: Evidence from the Industrial Removal Office

Leah Boustan (Princeton)

Many of the 30 million immigrants to the United States during the Age of Mass Migration (1850-1920) settled in ethnic neighborhoods. We study the Industrial Removal Office, a community program that relocated 40,000 Jewish households from New York City enclaves to locations around the country. We link program participants and non-participants from the same neighborhoods from 1910 to the 1920 census (fathers) and the 1940 census (sons). Not surprisingly, participants held lower paying occupations than non-participants at baseline. Ten years later, participants completely converged in occupation-based earnings. The children of IRO participants retained these gains but did not converge further. Participants were also more likely to marry spouses with less Jewish names, a sign of cultural assimilation.
