Unemployment and the Inter-regional Mobility of Labour
This paper investigates the effect of unemployment on interregional mobility in Great Britain by estimating household migration probabilities with data from the 1977 and 1984 Labour Force Surveys. It finds that households with unemployed heads are much more likely to move than households with employed heads, but regional unemployment differentials do not play an independent explanatory role in migration decisions. It also finds that, at higher overall unemployment rates, the migration probabilities of the unemployed are reduced everywhere, but those of the employed show little change.
