Abstract

The paper proposes an explanation of the migration behaviour over a regional space on the base of individual preferences and of the functioning of the local labour market. Data on employment and population dynamics at the municipal level often show a clear correlation as effect of spatial contiguity. Therefore, the paper set up an econometric model explaining employment-based individual residential choices also depending on the bordering context. According to the theoretical model, the observed population evolution can be used to define the extent of the local labour markets and consequently the incentive to migration. The model is applied to the municipal data of Marche region and results discussed according to the available boundaries of local labour markets. Moreover, a comparison between rural and urban communes is carried out to provide empirical evidence about the demographic evolution beyond the pull of employment growth.
