Determinants of Internal Migration in Romania: A Microeconomic Analysis Using a Social Survey
AbstractInternal migration is appreciated in the literature at national, regional or individual level. This paper focuses on the micro level and uses as main tool a social survey in order to determine the main determinants of this phenomenon within Romanian borders. Data for this preliminary study was collected using an online questionnaire addressed to members belonging to different working or educational entities. The survey comprises questions related to various aspects investigated on the existing literature and also some final questions related to the personal experience of the respondents. The main results confirm some of the previous findings, such as married people, with dependents, aged 50+, employed, homeowners, etc. are relatively less willing to migrate. Further, the physic costs of moving are more important than the money costs, physical distance is viewed as a factor with a moderate impact and contracted migration overwhelmingly dominates the speculative type.
