Estimating interregional utility differentials

Description :
The major objective of the paper is to estimate regional utility levels based on interregional migration data. Three stylized facts concerning migration behavior are revealed by examining long-term Japanese data on interregional migration. Based on the stylized facts and the inconsistency problem, an operational model is formulated and interregional utility differentials are estimated. These differentials converged until the late 1970s. The utility estimates are highly correlated with the per capita real income.
