Fiscal Implications of Emigration

Lars Johansson ()

Abstract: This study examines the fiscal effects of emigration. A dynamic macroeconomic framework is used. The net peresent value of the fiscal effects of different types of individuals' emigration decisions is calculated. Individuals are differentiated w.r.t. age, gender, education, being immigrants or born in Sweden and how long they choose to stay abroad in case of emigration. This study expolores how the fiscal effects of emigration are contingent on these different personal characteristics and is applied to the case of emigration from Sweden in 1998. The estmated aggregate fiscal cost is SEK 11.6 billion or 0.62% of GDP. This cost is significantly larger than the cost of immigration.
