Migration and Marital Status. The Case of Switzerland

Tom Priester and Werner Haug

Swiss Journal of Economics and Statistics (SJES), 1995, vol. 131, issue II, 179-202

Abstract: The present study describes the connection between marital status and spatial mobility. Despite the close relationship between marital status and age, marital status makes only an insignificant contribution to the explanation of mobility, while age is clearly the determining variable. If the age is known, predictions can be made both about marital status and mobility. Regression models show that the relative lack of spatial mobility of married people is reduced by introducing additional features. Labour force status, size of household and ownership of residence have to be taken into account in the analysis of migrations.
