This chapter explores economic and cultural integration patterns for different immigrant groups in Italy, from first to second generations and across age cohorts. The chapter produces descriptive statistics regarding the differences of immigrants with respect to natives in terms of education, employment, female participation rates, marriage, divorce, exogamous marriage rates, and completed fertility rates. The analysis does not show evidence of slow integration patterns for immigrants into Italy, though inter-marriage rates between immigrants and natives are very low. Severe data limitations, however, suggest caution in the interpretation of these results.
