Migrants on the Russian Labor Market: Profile and Earnings

2013. Vol. 17. No. 1. P. 44–80 [issue contents]
Russia has recently become one of the top migrants receiving countries. Still economic analysis of immigration to Russia is scarce. In this paper we use data from 2007 and 2009 Tajik Living Standards Survey to describe a typical Tajik migrant in Russia and estimate migrant-natives wage differential. We find 36% differential in 2007 and 45% differential in 2009.
