Naturalization in New York City and the United States

Abstract: This paper examines factors that structure the naturalization of immigrants in New York City. Additionally, it will be examined, how naturalization in New York City differs from the overall U.S. naturalization trend. The results show that immigrants in New York City tend to be more often naturalized even after controlling for their composition in regard to skills, resources and commitment to the U.S. as a place of residence. However, this is not the case for four of the five largest immigrant groups in the city.
