International Migration and Regional Housing Markets: Evidence from France

Hippolyte d'Albis, Ekrame Boubtane et Dramane Coulibaly

Résumé :

This article examines the causal relations between immigration and the characteristics of the housing market in host regions. We constructed a unique database from administrative records and used it to assess annual migration ows into France's 22 administrative regions from 1990 to 2013. We then estimated various panel VAR models,taking into account GDP per capita and the unemployment rate as the main regional economic indicators. We find that immigration has no significant effect on property prices, but that higher property prices significantly reduce immigration rates. We also find no significant relationship between immigration and social housing supply.

Classification JEL : E20, F22, J61.

Mots-clés : Immigration, Property Prices, Social Housing, Panel VAR.
