Analysis of Net Migration Factors as the Basis for an Optimal Migration Policy

  • Lifshits, Marina


    (State Institute of Macroeconomic Research (IMEI), Moscow, Russia)

The paper analyzes the net migration to Russia as a result of the population exchange in the post-Soviet countries. We study both temporary migration and relocation to permanent residence. Panel econometric analysis confirmed all author’s theoretical hypotheses including (1) emerging of manpower competition on the post-Soviet territories, (2) negative influence of mortality upon the net migration to Russia, and (3) population ageing in the countries of origin.
