  1. Ordinary least square analysis of Immigrant Rights in Models (9) and (10) and ordered probit analysis in Model (11). Model (9) shows results using the immigrant rights variable in the Peters and Shin (2021), and Models (10) and (11) show results using the IMPIC indicator of whether migrants can vote in a national election. In Models (10) and (11), the dependent variable was recoded so that more migrant rights are coded high. The constant is included, but not reported in the table. Panel-corrected standard errors are in parentheses for Models (9) and (10), and clustered standard errors on country are in parentheses for Model (11). a, b, c, and d indicate statistical significance levels of .1, 1, 5, and 10%, respectively
