  1. Notes: Robust standard errors clustered at the firm level are reported in parentheses. The estimation sample includes observations from 4907 men. The table reports estimates from multinomial logit models of transition probabilities similar to those in column (2) of Table 2 controlling for worker and job characteristics. We replace the visible minority and white immigrant indicators in Table 2 with four immigrant indicators (visible minority or white immigrants entering Canada before 1993 and in 1993 or later). Around a third of immigrants in our sample enter Canada after 1993. For white Canadians, we report the predicted probability of each transition, while for visible minority immigrants, we report the difference in the predicted probability between visible minority immigrants in a particular age-at-immigration group and white Canadian-born workers
