Internal Migration of Immigrants: Evidence from Western Germany

Belit Saka

Schmollers Jahrbuch : Journal of Applied Social Science Studies / Zeitschrift für Wirtschafts- und Sozialwissenschaften, 2013, vol. 133, issue 2, 215-225

Abstract: This paper deals with the internal migration patterns of the immigrant population in Germany and addresses the question of whether immigrants are more mobile than native Germans and to what extent the differences in spatial mobility behavior between immigrants and native Germans are influenced by (a) individual level characteristics and (b) the regional economic and social context background. The analysis shows a very low rate of internal migration in Germany. Even after controlling for individual- and regional-level characteristics, the immigrant population is half as mobile as native Germans. The results are more consistent for second-generation immigrants.
