Description

Enhancing migration and mobility has been put forward as a solution to Indigenous disadvantage in Australia. To assess the feasibility of this suggestion, Nicholas Biddle and Boyd Hunter examine patterns of migration and factors associated with both the decision to move and the choice of destination. The results suggest that Indigenous Australians are less responsive to local economic factors than other Australians, and social and cultural factors appear to play a particularly significant role in their decision making.
