My earlier research, summarized in Old Age and the Search for Security (Indiana, 1994), focused on social security, retirement, and the circumstances of the American elderly. More recently I have studied immigration and migration, particularly among Mexican Americans and Hispanics, examining changes in family structure over long periods of time. I was a NIH Senior Fellow, Population Research Center, at the University of Texas at Austin, in 1996-1997. This fellowship led to new estimates of the size of the Hispanic population and its subgroups from 1850 to 2000. I have since received support from NICHD for study of the assimilation trajectories of the children of immigrants and from NIA for research on the household characteristics of immigrant-origin older persons. In addition to these projects I have an active interest in contemporary Ecuadorian immigration and conducted research in that country with a Fulbright Research Fellowship in 2002.
