Selection after terror: Evidence from 30 years of terrorism in South Tyrol

Economics Letters, 2019, vol. 179, issue C, 62-65

Abstract: This paper investigates the selection effects on the population composition of terrorist attacks in the post-World War II region of South Tyrol, a predominantly German-speaking region of Italy. Using archival information on the location and casualties of 337 attacks across time and space, I examine the evolution of migration outflows and of the skill composition in the labor market. My results indicate a strong selection after attacks with casualties among civilians.
