How did we model migration?

  • MIGRATION = f(PCI, PBS, EFI, FFI, CRI)
  • Migration : Share of 2000 population for 25-39 year old in-migrants, 1995-2000.
  • PCI : Per capita income, 2000.
  • PBS : Professional Business Services, share of employment, 2000.
  • EFI : Economic Freedom Index, 1999.
  • FFI : Fiscal Freedom Index, 1999.
  • CRI : Richard Florida Creativity Index, 2003.
  • What did we learn?
  • Go-getters are not attracted by higher income locations.
  • They are highly attracted to large PBS states.
  • Economic freedom is a strong positive
  • They love “cool” states.
  • 5. They hate taxes.
slide38

When they move, what moves them?

Freedom?

Cool?

Income?

Cities?

Knowledge Economy?

slide39

We asked this question by way of statistical models. Our final model included a new Knowledge Economy Index. We also included a Freedom Index, a creativity index, and other economic variables. Knowledge Economy IndexIndex is based on statistical modeling of per capita income across the 50 states. Variation in income is explained by 1) education variable, 2) industry R&D expenditures weighted by employment, and 3) the relative number of fast growth firms (INC 500 & Deloitte Technology fast 500).Regression coefficients are used as weights applied to state data to build index

slide44

MIGRATION = f(KEI, OFI, CRI, COL, PCI , POP)

Migration: Average annual in-migration of 25-39 year olds,

2004-2008.

KEI : Knowledge economy index, 2008, Watkins-Yandle.

OFI : Overall freedom index, 2008, Mercatus.

CRI : Creativity index, Richard Florida, updated 2008.

COL : Cost of living index, 2009, Council for Community & Economic Research.

PCI : Per capita income, 2008.

POP : Average population, 2004-2008.

slide45

What did we learn?

  • Domestic and international movers prefer urbanized states.
  • International movers head toward highly ranked knowledge economy states; domestic movers are indifferent.
  • Domestic and international movers are high on overall economic freedom.
  • “Cool” locations matter to domestic movers but not to international movers.
  • Personal freedom matters to international movers, but not to domestic movers.
  • OVERALL: Freedom matters.
