The Analytics of Seasonal Migration

Oded Stark and C. Simon Fan

No 7124, Discussion Papers from University of Bonn, Center for Development Research (ZEF)

Abstract: A framework that yields different possible patterns of migration as optimal solutions to a simple utility maximization problem is presented and explored. It is shown that seasonal migration arises as an optimal endogenous response to a comparison of costs (of living and of separation) and returns (to work) over a set of three alternative options, even if a year-long migration is feasible.
