Returns to migration, education and externalities in the European Union

Rodríguez-Pose, Andrés and Tselios, Vassilis (2010) Returns to migration, education and externalities in the European Union Papers in Regional Science, 89, (2), pp. 411-434. (doi:10.1111/j.1435-5957.2010.00297.x).

This paper uses microeconomic data for more than 100,000 European individuals in order to analyse whether the individual economic returns to education vary between migrants and non-migrants and whether any differences in earnings between these two groups are affected by household and/or geographical (regional and interregional) externalities. The results point out that while education is a fundamental determinant of earnings, European labour markets do not discriminate in the returns to education between migrants and non-migrants. Household, regional and supra-regional externalities influence the economic returns to education in a similar way for local, intranational and supra-national migrants. The results are robust to the introduction of a large number of individual, household and regional controls.
