As the first in a trio of pieces devoted to incorporating immigration into policy models, this article traces the history of research on immigrant earnings. It covers how the earnings trajectories of immigrants differ from those of U.S. natives, how they vary across immigrant groups, and how they have changed over time. The highlighted findings underscore key lessons for modeling immigrant earnings and pave the way for representing the earnings trajectories of immigrants in policy models.
