THE LABOUR MARKET EFFECTS OF IMMIGRATION AND EMIGRATION IN OECD COUNTRIES

Chapter 6 in The Economics of International Migration, 2016, pp 187-226 from World Scientific Publishing Co. Pte. Ltd.

Abstract: In this study, we quantify the labour market effects of migration flows in OECD countries during the 1990s based on a new global database on the bilateral stock of migrants, by education level. We simulate various outcomes using an aggregate model of labour markets, parameterised by a range of estimates from the literature. We find that immigration had a positive effect on the wages of less educated natives and it increased or left unchanged the average native wages. Emigration, instead, had a negative effect on the wages of less educated native workers and increased inequality within countries.
