On Fragile Grounds: A Replication of Are Muslim Immigrants Different in Terms of Cultural Integration?
(), Jonas Karlsson
() and Michael Lundholm
Abstract: This study is a replication of "Are Muslim Immigrants
Different in terms of Cultural Integration?" by Alberto Bisin, Eleonora
Patacchini, Thierry Verdier and Yves Zenou, published in Journal of
European Economic Association, 6, 445-456, 2008. Bisin et al. (2008) report
that they have 5963 observations in their study. Using their empirical
setup, we can only identify 1901 relevant observations in the original
data. After removing missing values we are left with 818 observations. We
cannot replicate any of their results and our estimations yield no support
for their claims.
