Abstract

This study investigates the impact of certain state and local government policies on 1960-70 migration according to race. Black migrants are found to be attracted to states with higher welfare (AFDC) levels and higher levels of state plus local government spending. By contrast, white migrants are attracted to state with lower AFDC levels and appear to be relatively insensitive to non-welfare spending.
