dc.description.abstract Abstract We study the effects of regional labour market conditions on inter-regional migration using province-level panel data on bilateral migration flows and disaggregated labour market flows. Our results indicate that hires from unemployment and job separations leading to unemployment have sizeable effects on migration. The effects of hires from and separations to other labour market statuses, while also significant, appear smaller. Further, our results suggest that inter-industry and inter-firm shifts in employment are immaterial for migration. Taken together, inter-regional migration is largely dependent on unemployment and the employment possibilities available for the unemployed in regions. Keywords: Inter-regional migration, job flows, worker flows, worker turnover, unemployment, GMM estimation.
