... equations were estimated using samples of men who were approximately full-time workers in both 1968-69 and 1976-77.3 However, such a restriction in the two youngest age groups would preclude the opportunity to model earnings attainment near the time of la- bor market entry. This would be very un- fortunate...

Under such cir- cumstances, our estimates of the effect of social networks on migrants earnings are likely to be affected by omitted variable biases. Additionally, migrants networking...
