    Abstract

    The authors estimate the impact of occupational licensing on interstate migration and earnings. Interstate misallocation of labor resources and a redistribution of income in favor of the most highly regulated occupations is seen as a consequence of licensure barriers. The article presents descriptive information about the barriers to mobility posed by licensure; it compares interstate migration rates; and it develops an econometric model of licensing, migration, and earnings for those in universally licensed occupations.
