Interstate Migration and the Tiebout Hypothesis: An Analysis According to Race, Sex, and Age
AbstractThis article empirically examines the impact on interstate net migration of differential state and local property tax and transfer policies in the United States by race, age and sex for the period 1965-70. The results offer considerable support to the Tiebout hypothesis that the consumer-voter moves to that area which best satisfies his preferences for public goods.
