MIGRATION IMPACTS ON INVESTMENT IN PUBLIC SCHOOLS: AN ECONOMETRIC STUDY OF WISCONSIN SCHOOL DISTRICTS

George W. Morse

No 283556, 1978 Annual Meeting, August 6-9, Blacksburg, Virginia from American Agricultural Economics Association (New Name 2008: Agricultural and Applied Economics Association)

Abstract: If non-parents support education as an investment in social benefits,expenditures will decline as out-migration increases. This hypothesis was tested using Wisconsin school district data, gross migration rates, and single and simultaneous equation models. The results support the investment hypothesis and the need for explicit spillover compensation formulas.
