Abstract: Non-metro Missouri has observed a net in-migration in the last decennial period and great part of these immigrants are Latinos. The literature contends that Latinos are being pulled into the rural areas by large agricultural operations and pushed out of urban areas by harsh “context of reception” immigration laws, and low job availability. A livelihood framework factors explaining vulnerabilities faced by Latinos, economic conditions in non-metro Missouri, using the PUMS as well as county level data on racial profiling (proxy for context of reception) and DESE database. The results show that nativity, work experience, mobility, racial profiling and gender play a significant in Latinos' earnings in non-metro Missouri. Interestingly, mobility has a negative effect on income earnings. Suggesting the need to explore further the reasons for moving which may be related to Context of Reception.
