Abstract

This study investigates the demographic determinants of regional migration within the United States for the periods 1965-70 and 1975-80. Primary focus of the paper concerns racial differences in an individual's choice of destination region and the influence of educational attainment on this decision. Data used in the analysis are drawn from the United States census public-use microdata samples. Strong evidence is provided demonstrating that an individual's choice of destination region differs by race and that educational attainment has a significant impact on racial differences in the direction of regional migration. Moreover, racial selectivity and the influence of education is shown to be significantly different between time periods. © 1993 Springer-Verlag.
