The purpose of the paper is to analyze the migrants’ propensity to sending money to the origin country. The study is based on data coming from the National Immigrant Survey of Spain. We employ a binary logistic regression model in order to identify the impact of socio-demographical factors on the probability of sending money abroad from Spain, focusing on a large group of respondents, which are Eastern Europe migrants.
