William Swank Program in Rural-Urban Policy titled “Immigration, Jobs, Crime, and Workforce Availability: How Does Immigration Affect Ohio and the USA?” looks at existing evidence of the effect of immigration on socioeconomic outcomes for those born in the U.S. The goal of the brief authored by Dr. Mark Partridge, professor and chair of the C. William Swank Program in Rural-Urban Policy, and PhD candidate Sydney Schreiner, is to examine the immigration landscape in the U.S. and specifically, the state of Ohio, to better understand the characteristics of the immigrant population. The researchers assert that understanding the characteristics of the immigrant population is essential for crafting good policy.
