Abstract

This paper investigates the reasons that lead migrants to performmultiple migrations in Spain. After describing the main features of these immigrants,we specify a binomial logit and multinomial probit in which the probabilityof re-migration depends on the personal characteristics of individuals and thecorresponding origins and destinations of their migratory paths. The informationused comes from the microdata of the Residence Variation Statistic. Results indicatethat repeated migration of nationals and non nationals respond to differentreasons. The analysis suggests that foreigners’ re-migrations depend on the results of their labor experiences, whereas other reasons can be found in those ofSpaniards.
