Manufacturing accounts for almost twice as much (20 percent versus 11 percent) of private sector employment in non–state capital MSAs. The choice sets are different in state capital MSAs and non–state capital MSAs. As Boustan and Margo indicate, the nine largest MSAs in the nation are not state capitals, so the state capital results may not reflect the employment location effects for large MSAs. Because many studies have connected suburbanization of residences to flight from central city poverty or African Americans, and because state capitals have fewer African American and poor residents, the state capital results may overstate the employment location effects for MSAs with more African Americans and more poor.

College graduates function in a national labor market, and therefore their employment outcomes are not restricted to a narrow geographic band around where they happen to live (Wozniak 2006). Similarly, recent migrants to a metropolitan area have demonstrated their willingness to participate in a labor market that is much broader (in the geographic sense) than their immediate residential area. If we find a stronger relationship between the place of work and place of residence among these mobile workers, we feel confident in interpreting the relationship as the effect of work location on residential location.
