  1. Note: International migration desire is a binary dependent variable. SWB is represented by the responses to the Cantril question. SWB is treated as a categorical variable. SWB = 0 is used as the reference group. Robust standard errors are corrected for clustering at the country level. *p < 0.1; **p < 0.05; ***p < 0.01.
