Working Papers

Income and the Desire to Migrate (with Alan Manning, LSE) CEP DP here

We focus on understanding the role of both personal and aggregate income in shaping the demand for migration. We use data that is arguably close to reflecting the desires of migrants. Gallup World Poll (GWP) asks people whether they would like to move permanently to another country and, if so, which specific country that is. This will allow us to analyse the impact of income on both the willingness to migrate and on the indication of a preferred destination.
