Destination Choices of Michigan Micropolitan Outmigrants: Key Determinants and Implications for Community Marketing
AbstractAs its economy struggled during the last decade, Michigan became the only state to lose population between the 2000 and 2010 Censuses. Michiganâ€™s problems were well known and communities in other states sought to attract residents from Michigan. This paper describes the efforts of one Nebraska community, Columbus, to recruit residents from a specific Michi-gan micropolitan area. We also develop a model of destination choice by outmigrants from Michigan micropolitan areas. We find that counties that offer amenity and real wage ad-vantages have the greatest potential to attract Michigan outmigrants, that differences in un-employment rates do not influence destination choice, and that the potential for attracting workers drops with distance.
