Occupational change and differing returns to migration by gender
Journal of Socio-Economics
In this paper I explore the consequences of migration on the earnings of individuals by gender and marital status. Microdata taken from the Panel study of Income Dynamics are used to measure the financial returns to intercounty migration for individuals in a temporal framework accounting for gains that accrue over time. Earnings are estimated for a pooled sample of migrants and nonmigrants in a two-stage procedure correcting for self-selection bias. In order to explain initial losses often incurred by migrants, employer and occupational change are interacted with migration status in earnings estimations. Results indicate that the impact of migration and occupational change vary by gender and marital status. © 1996 JAI Press, Inc. All rights of reproduction in any form reserved.
