As noted earlier, such a design may be overly restrictive if there are important differences across disaggregated skill groups and endogeneities of relative employment levels. Borjas (2003) addressed these issues in a study of the impact of immigration on relative wages in the US over the period 1980–2000. He used the nested production function approach outlined above with four education groups (less than high school, high school, some college, college graduate) and eight potential experience groups (five-year increments up to a potential experience level of 40).

13) where U is the quantity of unskilled labor and H is the quantity of skilled labor. 13) to study the impact of immigration of less-skilled labor on relative wages. Because unskilled labor and capital are substitutes, the response of the price of capital to profits will affect relative wages. This is in contrast to models where the relationships between skilled labor and capital and unskilled labor and capital are symmetric. Fourth, the aggregate production function parameters in the model outlined above are assumed to be exogenous.

On the other hand, some authors take a less structural approach by comparing income distribution in areas or markets with high levels of immigration penetration with those in low-immigration markets, controlling for other factors. The impact of immigration on income distribution is then estimated by the regression coefficients on the immigration measure. Unlike the structural approach outlined above, this research design is not based on a production function model. However, this approach does directly tie immigration to native outcomes, unlike some production function models.
