Abstract

This study provides a preliminary empirical investigation as to whether black-consumer voters were attracted by the prospect of higher AFDC benefits as they made interstate migration decisions over the 1970-75 time period. Unlike most previous studies, there was no compelling evidence of such a attraction. Of course, this study is only preliminary, and one could easily make an argument that there are omitted variables from the estimating equations.
