Worker Mobility, Residential Choice, And The Allocation Of New Jobs
We estimate a local labor market model for North Carolina. The model accounts for inter-county commuting - in addition to within-county labor market adjustments - when a labor demand shock occurs. Econometric results indicate that migration accounted for no more than 20 to 30 percent of county labor market adjustment to employment growth during the decade of the 1980s, and that most employment growth was accommodated by changes in commuting flows.
