Rückwanderung nach Ostdeutschland

Return migration to East Germany. Spatial patterns and relevance for regional labor markets. We analyze labor market-related return migration from West to East Germany between 1999 and 2012. The spatial patterns of relocating the place of living versus the place of work attribute clear benefits from return migration to the East German districts directly at the former intra-German border, the larger cities and the regions surrounding Berlin. Return migration to rural areas is in most cases undertaken by natives of these regions.
