Although several recent studies have provided important insights into how ethnic enclaves affect immigrants' socioeconomic outcomes, few have explored this question from the point of view of immigrant children. This paper contributes to the existing literature by investigating the long-term consequences of growing up in an enclave for immigrants' educational attainments and earnings. The main finding is that the size of the enclave negatively affects the probability of graduating from higher education. I do not, however, find any evidence that enclaves affect earnings.
