Abstract or Summary
  • This study examines the determinants of location choices of Asian immigrants in the US in 1990 and evaluates the effect of education and other quality of life variables as well as the traditional economic variables. The study builds upon similar works by Gallaway, Vedder and Shukla (1974) and Dunlevy and Gemery (1977) on the distribution of immigrant population in the 1900's. The findings show that the number of Asians in an area has significant positive effects on immigrant residence. This study also reveals a negative relation between unemployment levels and the number of immigrants locating to an area. The results provide support for a lagged adjustment process in affecting locational choice. However, there appears to be no significant relation between education spending and immigrant location to an area.
