  1. Note: See notes to Table 2 for the definitions of destinations. Samples are restricted to Mexico-born men (or women) in t-1, who arrived in the US in 1980 or later. The dependent variable is log real wage in year t-1. In addition to the variables listed as row headings, all regressions control for age (a dummy variable for each year of age), education, whether married, whether US citizen, industry of employment, PMSA unemployment rate, PMSA and year of observation fixed effects, age at arrival, period of arrival and years since immigration. Standard errors clustered on PMSA of residence are in parenthesis. The regressions in columns 2 and 6 also control for imputed internal migration and residual non match and these effects are allowed to differ across destinations. See text for the differences in model specifications for columns 3 and 4 (and 7 and 8). *0.05 < p ≤ 0.1, **0.01 < p ≤ 0.05, ***p ≤ 0.01.
