dc.description.abstractThe migration of labour can affect economies in several ways. This paper focuses on two ofthe economic impacts of migration in the context of the recent Welsh experience. Firstly,since migration is a key aspect of labour market flexibility, it is a mechanism through whichlocal and regional labour market differences can be reduced. However, it is found that themost deprived parts of Wales have the lowest levels of migration and that both in and outmigrationrates are negatively correlated with unemployment and sickness rates. Secondly,the characteristics of in and out-migrants have important implications for the current andfuture performance of local and regional economies. Using a variety of data sources, it isshown that people leaving Wales are younger and more educated than migrants to Wales.Furthermore, younger and more educated Welsh individuals appear to have a higherwillingness to move than their counterparts living elsewhere in Britain.en_US
