  1. Note: See notes to Table 2 for the definitions of destinations. 1Mortality is imputed based on NHIS-NDI data. 2 Internal Migration is imputed based on the March CPS. 3Residual nonmatch figures for first-generation Mexicans are imputed on the assumption of zero return migration (to Mexico) for second-generation Mexicans. See text for methods used for imputations. + sign indicates that the predicted terms/non-follow up rate is statistically different at the new high growth and new low-growth destination s at 95% confidence interval. ~indicates that the predicted terms/non-follow up rate for traditional and new (high or low-growth) destinations are significantly different at a 95% confidence interval. Standard errors are in parenthesis.
