The National Immigration Law Center (NILC), the Center for American Progress, and Tom K. Wong of the University of California, San Diego, conducted a national survey on social, economic, and educational outcomes for DACA recipients. The survey is part of Wong’s study called the Administrative Relief Impact and Implementation Study.
96 percent of respondents are currently employed or in school. DACA recipients are buying cars at rates higher than before entry in the program, and their average hourly wages increased by 45 percent. 92 percent of the respondents who are currently in school say that they “pursued educational opportunities that I previously could not” because of DACA.Tags: Education, Immigration
