Migration Effects of Welfare Benefit Reform
This study tests for a migration response to the implementation of stricter rules for receiving welfare benefits (means-tested social assistance for individuals who lack sufficient work-related income), in the form of mandatory participation in activation programmes in Stockholm town districts. The results give no indications that activation programmes affect the moving choices of recipients of welfare benefits. Copyright © The editors of the "Scandinavian Journal of Economics" 2009. .
