Abstract [en]


Remittances are defined as monetary transfers made by migrants to the country of origin, and have increasingly been viewed as the link between migration and development. Remittances from Sweden have been increasing and volatile during the last 30 years. By using processed data from LINDA (Longitudinal INdividual DAta for Sweden) and OLS it is found that remittances from Sweden not only are affected by the number of migrants and economic conditions but also by changes in characteristics of the migrant stock. The ability and propensity to remit are found to differ according to both origin and gender.
