International migration: a panel data analysis of the determinants of bilateral flows
In this paper I empirically investigate the determinants of migration\ninflows into fourteen OECD countries by country of origin, between\n1980 and 1995. I analyze the effect on migration of average income\nand income dispersion in destination and origin countries. I also\nexamine the impact of geographical, cultural, and demographic factors\nas well as the role played by changes in destination countries' migration\npolicies. My analysis both delivers estimates consistent with the\npredictions of the international migration model and generates empirical\npuzzles.
