Abstract

This paper fills an important gap in the migration literature by examining the interrelation between advanced consideration of migration and other migration decisions such as the choice of destination. It is shown that advanced consideration of migration via its interaction with some personal and locational factors can affect the destination choice and the potential destination characteristics, on the other hand, can trigger advanced considerations of migration. Furthermore, the results show that incorporation of advanced consideration of migration helps explain the anomalies observed in the literature (e.g., it offsets the negative impact of a high unemployment rate in a region so that migrants would move to a high unemployment area if they can plan ahead and make an effective job search).
