Los determinantes de la inmigración irregular en España
AbstractIn recent years there has been a strong political interest about illegal immigrants in Spain. In fact, there have been three regulatory adjustments in the period from 2000 to 2005. However, this effort has not been accompanied by studies that accurately estimate both the size of the irregular population and its characteristics. The reason for this paucity of studies is that illegal immigrants avoid any participation in surveys that may reveal their irregular status. However, the National Immigrant Survey 2007, National Statistics Institute (INE) allows to know if an immigrant has the necessary documentation to reside in Spain as well as personal characteristics. Thus, in this work we try to analyze the determinants of regular and irregular immigration in Spain, following the theoretical framework by Chiswick (1988). Also, we analyzed the influence of labor supply variables, variables related to personal characteristics of immigrant labor demand variables, and institutional variables (effects of regularization processes). And since the characteristics of immigrants are very different depending on their country of origin, we have also estimated models by country of origin.
