AnnotationThis US study examines the relative influence of a large number of characteristics of places on the migration decision making of a sample of people in an age group considering retirement migration. An experimental design is used in which individuals judge the desirability of migrating to hypothetical locations that vary in climate, type of location, nearness to sea or lakes, cost of living, size of nearest town or city, travel time to health services, travel time to relatives, measure of inflation, population age, and terrain. The findings show the relative importance given to these ten attributes of destination, and the distribution of preferred levels of each attribute when subjects rate the attractiveness of destinations by multiple attributes.
