Title:  Generational Status and Educational Outcomes Among Asian and Hispanic 1988 Eighth Graders
Description: This report uses the second and third follow-up files of the National Education Longitudinal Study (NELS:88) to examine the impact of generational status. The areas examined are educational achievement, high school graduation, aspirations for postsecondary education, and enrollment in postsecondary education among 1988 Asian and Hispanic eighth-graders as of 1994. The analysis reveals that although first- and second- generation Asians differed from their Hispanic counterparts in terms of likelihood of enrolling in any postsecondary education by 1994, those who were third generation did not.
