Intra-Group Differences in Business Participation: Three Asian Immigrant Groups
Sage Publications, Inc. / Center for Migration Studies of New York, Inc.
This investigates the ethnic and nativity differentials in self-employment based on small-business experiences of three Asian immigrant groups in the U.S. -Korean, Chinese, and Asian Indians. In light of the 1980 Census data, the intra- and the inter-group differences in the business participation rates of these Asian immigrant groups are examined. Findings reveal that each group has substantial intra-group differences in the business participation rate, and the differences can best be explained by the interactive approach proposed by this study. Moreover, a comparative study (inter-group comparison) of these intra-group differences opens a new avenue to understanding the various patterns of business participation among the recent immigrants from Asia.
