Dustmann, C., Casanova, M., Fertig, M., Preston, I. and Schmidt, C, M. (2003) ‘The Impact of EU enlargement on migration flows’. Home Office Online Report 23/03, Available at http://www.irr.org.uk/pdf/rdsolr2503.pdf Accessed March 2008. Hello, I need to analyse this article by separate parts which I wrote below, give an opinion, compare with other different article and put everything into slides. If it is possible please insert table or graph 🙂 Separate parts: 1. the setting of the frame of interest (from the introduction of the article): why are the authors interested in this topic? Is there a lot of relevant literature on the topic already? What does the article claim to try to bring new or original? 2. the hypotheses of the study: what do the authors set out to check / estimate / understand better? Do they address a specific problem/issue in society or politics? What do they expect to find? It is these hypotheses that guide authors in how they design their study. Hypotheses are usually part of the literature review or the theory parts. 3. the data used: Where? When? What? Is the data longitudinal? Cross-sectional? All industries? Stratified? Representative of whom? How many observations? (is it a small sample of 100 observations or thousands?) Is the data real, from a particular region or population sample, or is it experimental (modelled on a PC)? 4. the methodology: try to explain in as much detail as you can whatever you can understand from the method used: is it a regression line? Are there logarithm transformations used for variables? Are there dummy variables? Interaction variables? What variables are used to control for individual characteristics e.g. age, gender, firm size? Do they use fixed-effects? What is the estimation method: Logit? Probit? Tobit? Anova? 5. the results: is there anything surprising in the findings? Do the authors find that their results are in line with the literature or do they claim to have found a new trend, or add significantly to knowledge? Can the authors reject or accept their hypotheses? Can you comment on the size of the results mentioned? 6. the conclusions: can you summarise the findings, their relevance and implications, according to the author? 7. your opinion: is the article written well? Is it clear? Is it too long / short? Is it easy to read? Did you enjoy reading it? What parts did you find controversial? Do you agree with the importance of the topic? If you were the author, would you have done anything different? If there is one thing from the article those reading it should remember, take away as a lesson, or think more about, what is this thing? You could link the article to the lecture and to other articles that you may have read about or to the main literature that the author may be relying on (you find these in the articles’ reference section).
