These files include all material necessary to replicate the results of the published paper. The following files are included:
• The stata file “1A.district_pre1ststg_JFVMAS_JAERE.dta" is needed to replicate Tables 3 and 4 (col. 1-4)
• The stata file “1B.predict_sharesourcek_destinationj_JFVMAS_JAERE.dta” is needed to compute the probability to move from district k to district j (see Equation 7).
• The stata file “1C.predict_sharesourcej_fordestinationk_JFVMAS_JAERE.dta” is needed to compute the probability to move from district j to district k (see Equation 10).
• The stata file “\2.indiv_mainestdata_JFVMAS_JAERE.dta” is needed to replicate Tables 2, 5, 6, 7, and 8.
