Abstract

This is the fifth of a series of papers on the effects of structural change on different groups in the Australian community written by La Trobe University members of the IMPACT Project.1 So that the paper will be self-contained, we will repeat in section II some material from earlier papers on the nature of structural change and on our approach to measuring the incidence of the costs of structural change across different community groups. Then in section III we will summarize the results from our previous studies. Section IV overviews some new results on the effects of structural change on migrants classified by entry category and by duration of residence. Concluding remarks are in section V.
