The Effect of Unemployment on Interregional Migration in the Netherlands

Working Papers from DNB

Abstract: Using administrative data between 2006 and 2020, I analyze interregional migration in the Netherlands. In theory, individuals move out of regions with high unemployment rates, but most empirical research does not strongly support this prediction. Likewise, I only ï¬ nd a small effect of regional unemployment on interregional migration. Furthermore, I ï¬ nd that the unemployed are more mobile during the ï¬ rst three months of unemployment. In addition, my results suggest that renters in the private sector are much more mobile than homeowners or renters in the social housing sector. Finally, I ï¬ nd that commuters are much more likely to migrate, despite good infrastructure and relative short distances in The Netherlands.
