Housing is a crucial channel through which migration affects the local economy and wealth distribution. However, most of what we know about the effects of migration on housing is from studies focused on the inflows of immigrants. This paper quantifies the impact of out-migration on local housing empirically. We study one of the largest ethnically m...

... this section, we use the state-level change in employment as proxy of the Great Depression's intensity and test for the correlation with our instrumental variables. Table B.4 presents the estimates, confirming that our instruments are not significantly correlated with the state-level economic conditions of the Great Depression. represents the state level changes in employment between 1929 and 1939 in one of the following: non-manufacturing (NM), manufacturing (M), and total (Tot) non-agricultural employment. ...

We examine the consequences of a significant return-migration episode, during which at least 400,000 Mexicans returned to Mexico between 1929 and 1934, on U.S. workers’ labor market outcomes. To identify a causal effect, we instrument the county-level drop in Mexican population with the size of the Mexican communities in 1910 and its interaction with proxies of repatriation costs. Using individual-level linked Census data from 1930–1940, we find that Mexican repatriations resulted in reduced employment and occupational downgrading for U.S. natives. These patterns were stronger for low-skilled workers and for workers in urban locations.
