Regional Migration versus Regional Commuting: The Identification of Housing and Employment Flows
AbstractThis paper examines whether the impact of house prices and of labor market variables on migration differs as between contiguous and noncontiguous regions. The authors find that house price elasticities are increasing in the length of common regional boundaries. They argue that this effect may be due to residential movers between adjacent regions i.e. individuals who change house but not job. They also find that the response of migration to an improvement in relative employment opportunities across neighboring regions is less than the response of migration to an improvement in relative employment opportunities across neighboring regions is less than the response to comparable differences between noncontiguous regions. They argue that this effect is consistent with successful job-seekers commuting across regional boundaries (rather than moving home) and thus without being recorded as migrants.
