This paper is an empirical study on the effects of emigration on wages in the Philippines using 2003 labor force survey of National Statistics Office. To determine the effect of emigration on wages in home country, two regression models were used, group and individual. The group model is where workers are group classified by education and age of the total labor force. The other is the individual model where individual data is used. Using the regression models, it is found that emigration directly affect wages. A 10% increase in migrants will increase wages in the Philippines by about 7% using the individual data and by about 4% using the group data.
