Essentially, all datasets use as primary sources the original data released by the statistical offices of each receiving country, which try to maintain internal consistency over time. In our checks we often find an exact coincidence of the figures in overlapping periods. Occasionally there are slight differences introducing discontinuities as we merge two series from different sources. In those cases we include a dummy in the regression to account for the possible discrete jump, as we describe below.

6) Cultural distance. We have created a formative index based on five of the major dimensions included in Dow and Karunaratna (2006), which are differences in language, religion, industrial development, education and degree of democracy. The specific scores for the five variables are publicly available (Dow 2010) and have been converted in to a single composite index using the same methodology as for the Hofstede index: À Á2 CDDK ¼ Σk Iijk =Vk =5 where Iijk is the distance between countries i and j for the kth dimension of cultural distance, and Vk is the variance of the kth dimension of cultural distance across 120 countries.

These patterns are robust to restricting our analysis to a subsample for which we have higher quality data, to using a subsample with a more balanced bilateral panel, to considering 4-year (rather than annual) differences, and to taking into account out-migration. 2 For more extensive descriptive statistics on this data, please see Ortega and Peri (2014). Specifically, our dependent variables are log changes. Hence, time-invariant factors have been differenced out. 3 The Aggregate Effects of Trade and Migration: Evidence from OECD Countries 23 We interpret the diverging effects of trade and immigration on TFP as follows.
