ABSTRACT

This study is to investigate the relationship between migration and regional economic growth in our country using empirical analysis. Specifically, we use state and county-level panel data from 2000 to 2013 and from 2000 to 2011 respectively and make use of fixed and random effects estimation methods and system GMM, to find out what kind of effects migration has on regional economic growth. State level analyses show that intra-state migration increases each state’s per capita income and that it generates divergence of per capita income for each state. County level analyses show that inter county migration for the same state increases each county’s per capita income and that it gives rise to divergence of per capita income for each county. The net product taxes induce divergence of per capita income for each county and state but the population above 15 years old yields its convergence.
