Anglicized Names and Support for Minority Candidates

Immigrants to America have long had a history of anglicizing Jewish, Polish and Russian names for the sake of fitting in. More recently, research on labor market discrimination show prospective employers do not necessarily discriminate against resumes with Asian names, but they are more likely to call back resumes with Anglicized Asian names rather than non-Anglicized ones. Fan Lu designs a conjoint experiment that tests whether White voters exhibit a similar preference for what she calls "ethnic-lite" political candidates.

NAWS at 30

The National Agricultural Worker Survey (NAWS) began to interview workers employed on crop farms in calendar year 1988, and has interviewed over 70,000 workers in the past three decades. This conference examines NAWS and other farm labor data. Presenters are asked to consider (1) whether the NAWS methodology of multi-stage sampling to account for seasonal and regional fluctuations in farm employment or other aspects of the survey’s design need to be modified, and (2) whether the NAWS questionnaire should be modified to collect better or additional data.
