Depressed regions typically lose a large number of migrants, but simultaneously aredestination regions for some migrants. This paper analyses those people who decided to move to depressed regions in Finland in 1993-96. The analysis is based on a one-percent sample drawn from the Finnish longitudinal census. The results show that migration into depressed regions is also a selective process. However, the more educated an individual is, the more likely (s)he is to move to a prosperous region. The process of concentration of human capital is reinforced by inter-regional migration.
