To what degree do immigrants reduce their high rates of residential overcrowding with increasing length of residence in the United States? This question is addressed through the application of a double cohort method that nests birth cohorts within immigration cohorts. This method enables duration of immigration effects to be separated from ageing effects as cohorts pass through life course phases. Cohort's growth in income is found to contribute to the decline in overcrowding over time
