In this study the aim has been to shed light on the differences in characteristics between counter-urban movers and movers heading for other destinations. The estimation results can be condensed into a few words portraying those who move downwards the urban hierarchy. The counter-urban mover is probably older, born in a Scandinavian country, less well-off, having a university exam, living single, not participating in the labour force, and having recent experience of migration. If the counter-urban mover has a partner it is more likely that this person has a university exam and is unemployed. Moreover, the counter-urban mover is more likely to have had a child as well as become unemployed soon before the move.
