  1. Note–Standard errors are reported in parenthesis below the coefficients.* indicates significance at the 10% level,**at 5% level and ***at the 1% level. Standard errors are clustered by state. Sample sizes vary slightly because we do not observe migrants in all state-year cells when the sample is stratified by arrival intervals.
