Abstract

This paper surveys available empirical evidence on labor market effects of immigration. Many different approaches have been used already to try to find out whether immigration hurts the labor market opportunities of natives. No doubt new approaches will follow in the future as globalization will keep the migration issue on the agenda. This literature review discusses the different approaches concentrating on both the methodology and the results. At the end, it tries to summarize available evidence.
