Fiscal implications of emigration
(English)Manuscript (Other academic)
This study examines the fiscal effects of emigration. A dynamic macroeconomic framework is used. The net present value of the fiscaleffects of different types of individuals' emigration decisions iscalculated. Individuals are differentiated with relation to age, gender, education, being immigrants or born in Sweden and how long they choose to stay abroad in case of emigration. The study explores how the fiscal effects ofemigration are contingent on these different personal characteristics and it is applied to the case of emigration from Sweden in 1998. The estimated aggregate fiscal cost is SEK 11.6 billion or 0.62% of GDP. This cost is significantly larger than the cost of immigration.
