Abstract

Objective: We examine the effects of ethnicity, generational status, duration in the United States, language usage, and social capital on high school completion. We compare recent immigrants (those in the United States five years or less), long-term immigrants (those in the United States six or more yerars), and native-born persons with at least one foreign-born parent (second generation) to native-born persons of native parentage.
