Abstract: 
A framework for immigrant’s choice of location is based on recent studies on non-market interactions which explains how migrants concentrate. Applying data on the distribution of immigrants in 95 French provinces, the social interactions are subsequently estimated. This social component” of migration is then tested on international trade, providing a direct measure of the impact of social networks on the economy.
