In a new book, Dr. Nadia Youssef details the shifts in the composition of foreign-born people who have taken up residence in New York State since 1965. The author, a demographer at the Center for Immigration and Population Studies at the Staten Island campus of the City University of New York, draws a demographic and socio-economic profile of the state's foreign-born. Dr. Youssef relates birthplace to socio-economic status variables, thus providing a clearer picture of how various groups are faring.
