Worker Turnover, Structural Change, and Inter-Regional Migration: Evidence from Finland

Jani-Petri Laamanen ()

Finnish Economic Papers, 2014, vol. 27, issue 1, 34-55

Abstract: I study the effects of regional labour market conditions on inter-regional migration using province-level panel data on bilateral migration flows and disaggregated labour market flows. My results indicate that hires from unemployment and job separations leading to unemployment have sizeable effects on migration. The effects of hires from and separations to other labour market states, while statistically significant, appear smaller. Further, the results suggest that inter-industry and inter-firm shifts in employment are immaterial for migration. Taken together, inter-regional migration is largely affected by regional differences in unemployment and the employment opportunities available for unemployed workers.
