Abstract

This paper demonstrates a relationship between migration and public policy and suggests a role for migration in regional development. Increasing evidence of the importance of public sector variables in the household location decision suggests further study of migration and regional development. Our empirical results contribute to the literature linking migration and public sector characteristics. We link migration to public policy by treating tax and expenditure variables as site attributes in a utility maximization model. We find that public sector attributes, through their effect on migration, are among the determinants of regional development. -from Authors
