Abstract

We analyse postwar Dutch migration to New Zealand. We document that history, reflect on analytical and econometric modelling and then combine a sample of Dutch migrants in New Zealand with a representative sample of Dutch in The Netherlands to estimate wage equations simultaneously with the migration decision. We use the results for ex post evaluation of the migration decision.
