Abstract

I analyze the role of ethnic and native human capital – defined respectively as the average years of schooling of ethnic groups and of natives within a specific region – and of ethnic concentrations in the educational attainment of second generation immigrants in Germany. Compared to natives’ children, parents’ education has a small and insignificant effect on second generation immigrants’ education. Ethnic concentrations have a negative effect, while ethnic capital is insignificant. The effect of native capital, too, is insignificant but much larger in magnitude than the effect of ethnic capital. For women, mother’s education is relatively more important. For men, ethnic concentrations constitute a stronger impediment to educational attainment than for women.
