These indexes reveal large differences in how wealthy and poor households.

      This article is intended to be an exploratory analysis that highlights regional variations in the economic integration of new immigrants. We define and test several quantitative measures of occupational diversity among immigrants as a key proxy for their economic integration.   Research highlights We analyze the relationship between the pattern of trade specialization and economic growth. The empirical analysis complements cross-country methodology with panel data GMM estimations. Slow growth only occurs in countries exporting in unprocessed natural resource products. Primary commodity exporters are unable to develop more dynamic patterns of trade specialization.
