Abstract

In this study we estimate a reduced-form equation for migration of highly skilled and professionally trained workers from Fiji to New Zealand during 1987-1990. Explanatory variables include previous period's migrants, occupational income in New Zealand, the supply of graduates in New Zealand and political instability in Fiji. Using a reduced-form supply-demand model to estimate the determinants of migration, the study finds that the number of professional migrants from Fiji was significantly and positively related to previous year's migrants, the real income in New Zealand and political instability in Fiji.
