    There is an extensive literature on gender differences in the causes and patterns of migration (Becker and Morrison, 1999). While men and women have many common reasons for moving from one region or country to another, there are prominent differences as well. However, almost nothing is known as to whether men or women react more rapidly to changing opportunities, and to gender differences in response to economic and social crisis. This paper attempts to provide insights into both issues using monthly data from the Republic of Kazakhstan.
