Hi, the course: Labour economics,
This assignment ask me to do the Stata output with 2011 national household survey, and based on Stata output to get mean value table (table 1) & regression tables (table 2,3,4), and then composed 1500-2000 essay on it, the detailed requirement is shown in “assignment 2” file.
1. prof send us the example paper (similar structure to this one) I have already upload it in attached file, you can take a look, it will be helpful for the essay structure.
2. In this paper, prof ask edit the stata output to present it in a format
that is suitable for a table in a research paper. I have already got the stata output, and “do-file” if you need it, I can scan the stata output for you which i
3. For my research paper, I choose Southeast Asia immigrants (mainly from Vietnam) in Quebec. And compare to other immigrants and Canadian born, I go to prof office hour ask him about paper ideas, he says: focus on Vietnam refugees came Canada during 1975-1976, and research more sources related to this topic to compose whole essay.
4. for the table 1, is not a regression table, it is a mean value table.
What you can write:
eg: for wage variable, the people from southeast asia get less than Canadian born people
eg: for age: the mean age for southeast Asia (Vietnam) is 44 years old, is the oldest one among three groups, it can related to early years , Vietnamese refuges came to Canada, this the a reason why there age is the oldest.
(you can analysis it like this, and I will give you the code for variable, or you can check in code book , which I will upload)

as you look the table, the coefficient is highlight in red: study in foreign country (-0.2629925), why I mention this number, I came to prof office hour, and let he look my stata output, he point out this number, and say:
