It is presumably undisputed among economists, social scientists and demographers that a key factor influencing the migration behaviour besides the pecuniary aspects is the ‘quality of life’. Concerning the concept we intend to subsume all the factors that influence the subjective well-being of an individual, like the cultural climate, the education system, the acceptance by the neighbourhood, the working conditions etc. On the other hand it must be expected that a potential migrant especially in international migration will typically be informed only partially or at least rather vaguely about the pecuniary aspects and the quality of life in his prospective guest country before migration. Only by living there i. e. after migration, the individual will become well or at least better informed.
