  2. 1. Introduction
    (pp. 11-20)

    The aim of the TIES project was to investigate the integration of children of immigrants. These children were born in the survey country and have at least one parent who was born in Turkey, Morocco or former Yugoslavia. Such children are also known as ʹthe second generationʹ. The focus was on the second generation living in two major areas of concentration, i.e. cities, in each survey country (Crul and Heering 2008; Mulder and Zorlu 2008). The choice of these three groups was straightforward they have rather similar starting positions as children of labour immigrants while the migration history and cultural...

  3. 2. Representativeness
    (pp. 21-26)

    Overall non-response rates appeared to be high for all study groups raising doubts about statistical representativeness of the survey data. Fortunately, some characteristics of non-respondents were available in the sampled population register records (i.e. age, sex, place of residence, marital status). Analyses revealed that differences between respondents and non-respondents with respect to these characteristics were either absent or slight.

    Response rates in Amsterdam and Rotterdam were rather similar, on average 30.1 per cent (Table 1.1). The Moroccan study group had the lowest response rates of 25.1 per cent in Amsterdam and 24.2 per cent in Rotterdam, while the comparison groups...

  4. 3. Documentation of the variables
    (pp. 27-58)

    In this section all variables in the dataset are presented. The section provides an overview of variable names, labels and other characteristics, sorted by theme (Module). The names of the modules are also included in the dataset as variables, but they are only included to visualize the start of a set of variables belonging to new module.

    The last two sections include neighbourhood- and municipality-level variables. These are not called ʹmodulesʹ per se , since they were not directly asked but they were added to the end of the list of variables in the data file at a later point...
