Jun 2020
We employ recent household surveys and population censuses to present a profile of immigrants in Latin America and the Caribbean, with a focus on economic integration. By comparing the profile of immigrants with that of the non-immigrant population we identify gaps in several dimensions such as education, informality and skill downgrading. The exercise allows us to discuss some migration-related topics that are important not only for the countries that are receiving the bulk of the Venezuelan migration but also more generally across the region.
