Immigrants’ integration by 2030—Study
United States, 25th November: A recent study released a week ago predicts successful integration of immigrants by the year 2030.
This means immigrants in the US will not only put down roots but will also gain fluency in English speaking, grab bigger shares of real estate and provide positive contribution to the US economy.
Long term success for immigrants in the US--According to the report by authors John Pitkin and Dowell Myers, despite tougher economic scenario and political instabilities, immigrants are likely to succeed and they have huge success over the long term.
The report aptly named ‘Assimilation Tomorrow: How America’s Immigrants Will Integrate by 2030” has been the result of collaborative efforts of the staff at the Center for American Progress with the University of Southern California.
Immigrants who are settled for quite a long term in the US are found to be having better integration into the American culture and way of life than the recent immigrants, said Myers, director of the Population Dynamics Research Group at the University of Southern California School of Policy, Planning and Development.
Foreign-born people living in Texas or California for quite long time are found to be successful in terms of education and materialistic aspects.
Percentage of immigrants from 1990s becoming homeowners by the year 2000 is said to be 25.5 percent, while those likely to gain US citizenship by 2030 is predicted to be 70.6 percent.
25 percent of immigrants became homeowners in the US—The study further found that nearly 25 percent of all immigrants became homeowners in the US in a quite short span of time. And for those living in the US for a period exceeding 20 years, the percentage of gaining home-ownership in the US is expected to shoot up to 72 percent.
This means the percentage of immigrants owning homes in the US will be even higher than the rate for native-born US people, the study further affirmed. And this increase in US homeownership will bring a big boost to the US housing market, the study hopes.
All such findings show that integration of immigrants in the US, no doubt, is a long process but, in the end, it is quite successful.
