Search Time, Unemployment, and the Migration Decision.
Goss, Ernst P.; Schoening, Niles C.
Journal of Human Resources, v19 n4 p570-79 Fall 1984
Unemployed in distressed regions of the United States have been reluctant to move to areas of greater employment opportunities. By establishing a negative correlation between weeks of job search and probability of migration, this study is able to provide a partial explanation for lack of a positive relationship between outmigration rates and unemployment rate in the local labor market.
