Abstract

Presents a summary of results from a representative survey of Cuban refugees who arrived in the United States during the Mariel exodus and resettled in the Miami Metropolitan Area. The survey took place in fall 1983 and spring 1984 and encompassed 514 cases. Areas covered in this report include individual background characteristics; early resettlement experiences; education, knowledge of English, and media exposure; employment and income; and attitudes and perceptions. For comparison, results from an earlier cohort of Cuban refugees (followed during the 1970s) are also presented. Similarities and differences between both samples are analyzed, and theoretical and practical implications of results as they bear on prospects for successful adaptation of Mariel refugees are discussed. -Authors
