Analysis of poverty reduction and human capital accumulation economic policies

Priority areas of development: economics
2015
Head: Lokshin, Michael

Goal of research: Examining the flow of intergenerational transfers between parents and adult children. Analysis of migration experience and economic characteristics of the receiving regions as factors of destination choice by Tajik labor migrants in Russia.

Methodology: Parental transfer decision is estimated using Tobit and random-effect Tobit models. Migrants choice of destination is theoretically modeled as utility maximization problem and empirically estimated using conditional logistic regression method

Empirical base of research: RLMS-HSE 2003-2013, Generation and Gender Survey 2004, Tajikistan Living Standards Survey 2007 and 2009

Results of research: We find strong evidence that parental transfers negatively respond to recipient income. Our results suggest existing inertia in the geography of migrants’ concentration: previously chosen destinations largely define future ones. We find that migration experience restricts the effect of receiving regions’ economic characteristics.
