The Impact of Labor Market Dynamics on the Return Migration of Immigrants

Abstract : Using administrative panel data on the entire population of new labor immigrants to the Netherlands, we estimate the effects of individual labor market spells on immigration durations using the timing-of-events method. The model allows for correlated unobserved heterogeneity across migration, unemployment, and employment processes. We find that unemployment spells increase return probabilities for all immigrant groups, while reemployment spells typically delay returns. © 2014 The President and Fellows of Harvard College and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology
