Interregional labor migration occurs in response to the stress existing between a worker's existing condition and the expected condition perceived to exist in an alternative region. These perceptions are formed from information received through various channels. Three channels are examined: interpersonal communication, general source information, and specific source information targeted at unemployed workers. In this process, trajectories of welfare levels (composed of wage plus nonwage benefits), information flows, vacancy and unemployment levels are generated for different worker and job types, regional aggregates, and the system as a whole. The behavior of the model is examined by means of numerical simulations and sensitivity analyses.-Author
