Abstract

There are two particular contributions that we seek to make to the scholarship on migration and remittances in Republic of Macedonia. First, we examine patterns of migration and remittances (including in-kind and other informal transfers) based on a household survey that is representative of the whole country as well as of different regions of the country. Second, the report compares the patterns of migration and remittances between two main ethnic groups, i.e., Albanians and Macedonians. The analysis is expected to have significant policy implications.

Keywords: Remittances, migration, Standards of living, Macedonia
