Challenges to identification

Fraction foreign born (in industries or states) is endogenous with respect to outcomes of interest

Reverse causation: growing industries may attract more foreign-born

Omitted variables: third factors (e.g., industry subsidies, sector-specific trade liberalization) may influence both natives’ labor market outcomes and fraction foreign-born

Need a source of variation in fraction foreign-born that is exogenous with respect to natives’ labor market outcomes
