The Effect of the Social Welfare System on Metropolitan Migration in the U.S., by Income Group, Gender and Family Structure.
Cushing, Brian J.
Urban Studies, v30 n2 p325-38 Mar 1993
Addresses out-migration from and in-migration to metropolitan areas in the United States and particularly the effect of the social-welfare system on migration decisions. The results provide only weak support for the hypothesis that social-welfare benefits influence out-migration decisions but moderate support for its influence on in-migration. (GLR)
