Abstract

This study examines determinants of gross in-migration by race (white and black) over the 1965-1970 time period. The ordinary least squares results reveal that both white migrants and black migrants have an aversion to cold weather and prefer to move shorter rather than longer distances. White migrants were more likely to move to higher per capita income states. Black migrants manifested a strong aversion to states with a higher unemployment rate; however, unlike white migrants, black migrants appeared to be highly attracted to higher welfare states.
