Les migrations des jeunes en phase d'insertion professionnelle en France. Une comparaison selon le niveau de qualification


Author Info

This paper compares migration profiles between low and high levels of education using French data. It is well known that most migrants are individuals with a high level of education ; nevertheless, we also observe geographical movements by less educated people in the first years of their professional life. These migrations are essentially motivated by professional motives, especially the need to find a job. Estimating migration equations separately for high and low education levels, we show that the main determinants of migration differ between levels : if there are few migrants among the less educated, contrary to high educated levels, most of them move several times. They migrate when they face difficulties to find a job whereas the best educated do not need to use migration to find a stable job. Classification JEL : 12, J6.
