Hispanic Self-employment in the Southwest

Rising Above the Threshold of Poverty

Book - 1998
Rate this:
Draws on figures from the 1990 US Census to examine whether self-employment is an option that can enable Hispanic householders who reside in the southwest part of the country to raise their households above poverty. Finds that just over half of the eight percent of that population then self-employed earned over the poverty level, and that human capital, assimilation, and individual and relationship capital were more abundant among that half.
