We are all Chinese (They are all Americans)

For a while now, I’ve had the impression that Chinese immigrants are more ‘American’ than other immigrant groups. No, I have no idea what I really mean by that.

Anyway, I wonder if we looked at the summary statitics for Americans if they’d be much different then those in this working paper (btw, you can safely ignore all the regressions and focus your attention to figure 1 and tables 2 and 5… oh, the size of social network is measured as the answer to the question “In the past year, how many relatives, friends, colleagues or acquaintances did you exchange gifts with or often maintain contact?”).
