This paper investigates how the ethnic diversity of immigrants, measured by the migrants countries of origin, correlates with the well-being of natives. Using longitudinal data for Germany, we find a positive effect of ethnic diversity on the well-being of natives. Our results are robust to numerous specification checks including a correction for possible non-random selection of natives and migrants into regions.
Further tests reveal that the effect of diversity is stronger for individuals with love in more assimilated areas and who have more open personality traits and higher level of social capital.
