Immigration Status of Europeans / European Americans

Kim, Olivia Samantha; Smith, Raymond Arthur

The current outlook on the immigration status of European Americans shows more complete assimilation and more positive experiences compared to those of the total foreign-born population in the United States. European immigrant populations have tended to be wealthier, older, and more educated than the rest of the immigrant population; also, the majority of European immigrants entered the United States earlier than the rest of the foreign- and native-born immigrant population, contributing to ease of assimilation and the generally higher relative socioeconomic status of European Americans.
