The incomes and professions of Haitian-Americans

The blog post is here.  It's a proposal for "diaspora bonds" (I fear that excess corruption is a problem).  I was more interested in this bit:

…nearly one-third of Haitian immigrants in the US belong to households that earned more than $60,000 in 2009. In comparison, less than 15% of the immigrants from Mexico, Dominican Republic and El Salvador in the US had that level of household income. A quarter of Haitian immigrants, especially women, are reportedly in the relatively higher paying health care and education sectors; only a small number of them are in the construction sector.

Hat tip goes to Whirled Citizen.
