Transition to Homeownership Among Immigrant Groups and Natives in West Germany, 1984–2008


Davidov, Eldad; Weick, Stefan (2011). Transition to Homeownership Among Immigrant Groups and Natives in West Germany, 1984–2008. Journal of Immigrant & Refugee Studies, 9(4):393-415.

Abstract

The present paper analyzes transitions to homeownership among immigrant groups and natives in West Germany over a 24–year period from 1984 to 2008. Using data from the
German Socioeconomic Panel (GSOEP), we find that everything else being equal, Turks, ex-Yugoslavians, Southern Europeans and Eastern Europeans do not display any differences in transitions into homeownership. Immigrants from wealthy western countries and native Germans possess similar and higher transitions into homeownership. Factors exhibiting a positive effect on transitions to homeownership include years since migration, marital status,
age, income and education.

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
