'Deborah Cobb-Clark and Siew-Ean Khoo are leading experts in immigration research. Here they have assembled a set of important studies that show how selective immigration policy affects subsequent outcomes for immigrants. the chapters exploit a unique longitudinal dataset that provides new insights into the factors that affect employment status, health and housing by cohort, gender and visa status. This volume sets high standards for immigration research and is essential reading for those interested in immigration policy reforms.' - Timothy J. Hatton, University of Essex, UK and Australian National University This book examines the role of immigration policy, and of economic and social policies involved in promoting the settlement of immigrants to Australia. It is based on research of two groups of recent immigrants who arrived six years apart during the 1990s holding a range of family reunion, skill and humanitarian visas.
