  1. Note: significance level: *** p<0.01; ** p<0.05; * p<0.1. Data are from the SLID and include panels 2-7 for the years 2001-2011. The estimation sample is restricted to full-time full-year paid workers aged 18-64, with positive wages and who have at least one post-secondary education credential. The immigrant sample is restricted to workers whose age at arrival was 10 years or older. The dependant variable is job-relatedness and the explanatory variables include years of schooling, potential experience, years since migration and other socio-demographic controls. Non-traditional immigrants include those born in the following countries/regions: Middle-East, Caribbean, Mexico and Central America, Southern America, Asia, Southeast Asia and Africa. Traditional immigrants include those born in the following countries/regions: United Kingdom, United States, Europe, Australia and New Zealand. Standard errors, adjusted for clustering at the individual level, are in parentheses and have been multiplied by 100
