Abstract:Immigration is of crucial interest for the actual and future demographic and economic situation in Germany. While immigration is present in public debates and economic research remigration has been of minor interest so far. This paper analyses the determinants of remigration of immigrants in Germany using the German Socio-economic Panel for the period 1994-2005. We conducted a random-effects panel probit regression and find that country of origin, years since migration, age and integration heavily influence the likelihood to remigrate. Of special interest is the finding that high qualified workers more likely leave Germany than less qualified persons.
