  1. Inequality Measure: Fraction Foreign Born Below Poverty.
  2. aCoefficients are shown along with absolute values of t-statistics for the fifty-four regressions of interest (18 in 3 subsections of this table). All regressions use probability weights for sample inclusion and clustering on the highest relevant level for the most conservative standard errors possible in the analysis. All regressions further include controls for year and region as well as the individual and area characteristics enumerated in Table 2. Regressions are stratified by inequality measure employed as well as whether the natives in the sample of interest are the full group, the 3rd-plus or the second generation of natives. Further stratification is on the race of the affected natives (white, Asian, Hispanic). * and ** show statistical significance at the 5% and the 1% level respectively.
