Migration Effects of Welfare Benefit Reform

Karin Edmark ()

Scandinavian Journal of Economics, 2009, vol. 111, issue 3, 511-526

Abstract: This study tests for a migration response to the implementation of stricter rules for receiving welfare benefits (means‐tested social assistance for individuals who lack sufficient work‐related income), in the form of mandatory participation in activation programmes in Stockholm town districts. The results give no indications that activation programmes affect the moving choices of recipients of welfare benefits.
