Two studies of aspects of immigrants' integration were performed. First, 200 German immigrants took part in an investigation of the relationship between neighbourliness and selected demographic and personal variables. Results indicated that women with internal locus of control who resided in relatively more rural areas prior to coming to Canada tend to be most neighbourly. Second, 144 Spanish immigrants participated in a study assessing factors related to variation in socializing behaviour and residential satisfaction. Results indicated that well educated Spanish immigrants who possess good command of the English language generally socialize with people outside their own ethnic group. Furthermore, residentially satisfied immigrants tend to be long-term residents of Canada who made an effort to learn English through government sponsored training programmes.
