Abstract. This paper briefly outlines the theoretical problem of the identification of duration-of-stay effects in migration.

New statistical tests developed by the authors are applied to Wisconsin migration data. These tests suggest that although heterogeneity and nonstationarity are strongly present within the data, duration-of-stay effects appear weak.
