Using the underexplored, sizeable and long longitudinal 1978-2006 UK Lifetime Labour Market Database (LLMDB), we estimate the immigrant-native earnings gap across the entire earnings distribution. We found that immigrants earn 2.3% more than natives on average. Whilst the gap was zero at the 30th percentile, it was negative at the bottom of the distribution and positive above the median.
