Abstract

In this paper, we estimate wage gains due to sequential geographic mobility of Italian University Graduates three years after graduation. By means of a matching procedure we quantify wage premia associated with the choice of studying far from home, moving after graduation and moving back home after graduation. We find evidence of large heterogene- ity in the returns to different migration patterns. We estimate large gains for those who move after graduation and little benefits for those who choose to go back home after hav- ing studied in regions different from that of origin. Finally, we also discuss a “transitivity” result for the estimated treatment effects.
