Abstract:This paper questions the perceived wisdom that migrants are more risk-loving than the native population. We employ a new large German survey of direct individual risk measures to find that first-generation migrants have lower risk attitudes than natives, which only equalize in the second generation.
Subjects:risk attitudes
ethnicity
native-migrant differences
gender differences
second-generation effects
