This study investigates factors affecting skill level occupational attainment of overseas born groups compared to the Australian born using 1986 Census data. Explanations for occupational attainment can be divided into those which allege that occupation is the outcome of achieved characteristics (education and labour market experience, for example) and those which hold that it is strongly influenced by ascribed characteristics such as ethnicity.
