Internal migration in Spain
Internal migration rates in Spain, in particular interregional ones, are relatively low in comparison with those in other developed countries, in spite of persistent sizeable differences in per capita income and unemployment rates across its regions. In this paper I describe the evolution of Spanish internal migration rates, both inter- and intra- regional, in the last forty years, I survey the demographic, institutional, and economic factors which help to explain such evolution, I list their economic effects, and I discuss the sorts of economic policies which could be adopted so as to affect them, linking those policies to foreign immigration flows.
