Nested logit model and maximum quasi-likelihood method: a flexible methodology for analyzing interregional migration patterns

Regional Science and Urban Economics 17(1-2): 67-88
Nested logit model and maximum quasi-likelihood method: a flexible methodology for analyzing interregional migration patterns
"A flexible methodology for explaining interregional migration in terms of relevant socioeconomic variables is set forth in this paper. Concerned with setting observation against theory, it makes use of (1) the nested logit model as a theoretical substratum, and (2) the maximum quasi-likelihood method as a method for parameter estimation and statistical inference. Application to interprovincial migration data over a 22-year period (1961-1962 to 1982-1983) shows that, in Canada, migration does not appear to serve well as an equalizer of economic opportunities."
