The paper analyses the directions of interregional migration in Romania in the years 2000-2007, taking into account the influence of economic factors on migration flows as gross wage, GDP per capita and regional unemployment rates. The influence of these factors can be justified in such a way that migrants move from poorer regions to richer ones, in search of better living conditions. Econometric model developed in this paper show that getting a higher salary was in the analysed period a significan factor for migration inflow. Following the results we conclude that regional imbalances in the Romanian labour market leads to a deepening of regional disparities.
