Migration Plans, Local Fiscal Variables, and Local Economic Conditions
The paper examines the effects of local fiscal variables and local economic conditions on migration plans of Norwegian households. The study takes advantage of a unique survey data set in which respondents evaluate a range of local amenities and report whether they intend to relocate. We find that municipal services are important to migration plans. Norwegian municipalities can increase the population share of young households by improving living conditions for children and the quality of schools and cultural services. The estimated effects of personal unemployment, local unemployment, and local wages on migration plans become weaker when amenity variables are included, indicating that capitalization of amenities cannot explain weak effects of local economic conditions on migration.
