''The effect of emigration on unemployment: Evidence from the Central and Eastern European EU member states''
( 2013, Vol. 33 No.4 )
This paper contributes to the scant empirical literature on the effects of emigration on source countries' labour markets. Using a novel dataset by Brücker et al. (2009), we find that emigration from the Central and Eastern European (CEE) members of EU during the period 2000 to 2007 has contributed significantly to the decline in unemployment in these countries.
Keywords: emigration, unemployment, Central and Eastern Europe
JEL: J6 - Mobility, Unemployment, and Vacancies: General
