Notes
  • Spanish internal migration has long been resistant to traditional economic explanations. However, this paper examines the data for the period 1999-2006 after considerable changes in the Spanish economy. Moreover, it examines migration at the disaggregated level of Spanish provinces rather than regions, the usual unit of measurement. Using a spatial error model as well as a spatial autoregression model it finds the differentials in wages and unemployment between provinces to be significant explanatory variables. House prices are also important in accounting for the dynamics of internal migration. Les migrations internes en Espagne: qu'y a-t-il de nouveau? Les migrations internes en Espagne resistent, depuis toujours, a des explications economiques traditionnelles. Cependant, la presente communication examine les donnees relatives a la periode 1999-2006, dans le sillage des changements considerables qui sont survenus dans l'economie espagnole. Elle se penche egalement sur la migration au niveau desagrege de provinces espagnoles plutot que de regions, unite de mesure traditionnelle. En utilisant un modele d'erreur spatiale ainsi qu'un modele a autoregression spatiale, elle en conclut que les differences sur le plan des salaires et du chomage entre les differentes provinces constituent des variables explicatives significatives. En outre, le prix de l'immobilier residentiel joue egalement un role important dans l'examen de la dynamique des migrations internes. Migracin interior espaola: Queda algo nuevo por decir? La migracion interior espanola lleva mucho tiempo resistiendose a las explicaciones economicas tradicionales. No obstante, este articulo examina los datos de 1999-2006, despues de considerables cambios en la economia espanola. Asimismo, examina la migracion al nivel desagregado de provincias espanolas, en lugar de regiones, que representa la unidad tipica de medida. Utilizando un modelo de error espacial, asi como un modelo de autorregresion espacial, se descubre que los diferenciales en salarios y empleo entre las provincias son importantes variables explicativas. Los precios de la vivienda tambien son importantes a la hora de comprender la dinamica de la migracion interior. [image omitted]
