Notes
  • This article aims to verify the main determinants of migration for a specific category: the qualified labor force. By qualified labor force, we mean persons with high education attainment (one year of college studies or more). The paper presents, first, the ranking of cities with higher attraction of qualified migrant. A specific indicator of qualified migration is elaborated, coined as index of net qualified migration, constructed from the comparison between qualified in-migrants and qualified outmigrants. Águas de São Pedro (SP) is the place with the highest index value. As for the group of municipalities with population higher than 100,000 inhabitants, São Paulo (SP) is the city in Brazil that has the highest net qualified migration index. Besides, the empirical analysis carried out in the paper aim to verify the main cities? characteristics concerning the attraction of qualified migrants. Spatial econometrics models, employed to correct for potential errors in the empirical strategy, corroborated the results estimated via ordinary least squares (OLS) models. Labor market dynamics, less social inequality, less crime, proximity to the coast and less rigorous climate are important factors behind the qualified migrants? choices to locate in a city.
