Family Migration and Labour Market Outcomes: A Panel Investigation

Research output: Chapter in Book/Conference proceedingBook Chapterpeer-review


Although considerable evidence can explain the consequences and reasons for the migration of household members, unresolved issues still surface. Primary concern revolves around the disturbing effects of female urbanisation caused by heightened participation of women in the workplace, especially in the European countries, and the probability of family relocation. Another factor is the negative impacts of such shifts, and the prevalence and empirical support for the recuperation of filial relationships specifically in married females. A further factor is the resolving effects of correcting the covert heterogeneity and sample selection biases. All of these are addressed in this chapter through the examination of the tied mover position using both traditional and contemporary methods, including problems on employment, wage differentials, and commuting time. Results are drawn from a quasipanel data set in order to eliminate estimation errors.
