        Telecommunications Externality on Migration: Evidence from Chinese Villages

        ABSTRACT

        This paper uses a unique natural experiment in Chinese villages to investigate whether access to telecommunications— in particular, landline phones—increases the likelihood of outmigration. By using regional and time variations in the installation of landline phones, the difference-in-differences estimation shows that access to landline phones increases the ratio of out-migrant workers by 2 percentage points, or about 50 percent of the sample mean in China. The results remain robust to a battery of validity checks.
