Pushing and Pulling : A population based approach to analysing the historical determinants of internal migration

Aradhya, Siddartha LU ; Eriksson, Björn LU and Hedefalk, Finn LU (2017) XXVIII International Population Conference
Abstract
This paper contributes to the literature on internal migration by estimating parameters for push and pull factors by modelling the complete migration decision. Using data based on individuals linked between the complete Swedish censuses of 1880 and 1890, we consider both the push factors which determined whether an individual choose to leave their origin and the pulls factors which attracted migrants to specific destinations. The analysis includes both male and female migrants and takes into account the effect of individual, family, and location specific characteristics . Moreover, we consider all possible origins and destinations for internal migrants.
