Group-specific effects of interregional mobility on earnings

Availability

Abstract

"The paper analyzes the relationship between regional mobility and earnings for different groups of workers. Using a large panel microdata set we find negative (positive) earnings differentials of movers in the year before (after) migration indicating significant wage gains for mobile workers. These gains can neither be explained by differences in their observed characteristics nor by the time-invariant part of unobserved heterogeneity. A decomposition of Blinder/ Oaxaca type reveals different group-specific rewards effects. Our results suggest that the post-migration wage differential of movers over the incumbent workforce is positive for most groups of workers irrespective of the region of destination."
