The objectives of this research are threefold. First, this report takes advantage of the non-immigrant population in Longitudinal Administrative Database (LAD) and develops a benchmark to which immigrants can be compared. Throughout the entire report the immigrant and non-immigrant populations are compared with respect to socio-economic characteristics and family income situations. Second, this report provides new information on the family income situations of immigrants including information on the number of contributors to specific types of family income as well as the average family amounts reported for each income type. Third, the results of this analysis are used to highlight directions for future research on immigrants and their families. The analysis also verifies the consistency of the immigrant populations in the Longitudinal Immigrant Database (IMDB) and in the LAD.
