Abstract

This paper deals with rural-urban migration in Senegal. A Probit estimation shows that economic factors such as wage are positively related to migration confirming the theory and previous empirical evidence. Public spending on infrastructures and social services also matter when it comes to deciding to migrate. In this respect, evidence shows that they would deter people from moving to urban areas. Furthermore, results from a Propensity Score Matching approach point to both poverty gap and severity of poverty reducing respectively by 9% and 6% thanks to remittances sent by migrant to households in the rural area while poverty headcount is not affected.
