Do the Poor Move to Receive Higher Welfare Benefits?
JCPR Working Papers from Northwestern University/University of Chicago Joint Center for Poverty Research
This paper examines the extent of welfare induced migration using 1980 and 1990 Census data. I begin by discussing a number of methodological issues which suggest biases in past methods used to study welfare migration. Using several different methods, I then provide new estimates which avoid many of the problems of past work. The estimates imply that there is welfare induced migration, but it is modest in magnitude.
