Internal Migration and Labour Market Transitions of Unemployment Workers
AbstractThis study examines two questions: how does internal migration affect labour market transitions of unemployed workers in 1994 and what are the determinants of migration in 1990 - 95. In both cases multinomial logit model is constructed. Results of the labour market transition model suggest that migration to a growth-centre region increases employment likelihood of the unemployed, while migration to other regions reduces it. Growth-centre migrants are also very unlikely to end their unemployment spell to active labour market programmes. Results of the migration model indicate that education increases likelihood of migration to growth-centre regions but does not affect migration to other regions. Job placements reduce and training program periods increase migration to growth-centre regions. However, they do not influence migration to other regions.
