Complementing the focus of the second piece, "Adding Immigrants to Microsimulation Models," on forecasting immigrant earnings and emigration in a "closed system" for a given population, the last article of the trilogy explores how to project immigrant earnings for an "open system" - a system that includes future immigrants. A simple method to project future immigrants and their earnings is presented.
