Abstract :This study examines individual attitudes toward immigration jointly with their trade policy preferences based on a survey of more than 10,000 respondents in Japan. Our bivariate probit estimation results show that people influenced by status-quo bias or risk aversion tend to have significantly lower probability of supporting both immigration and import liberalization.Anti-immigration individuals tend to have pessimistic views of the national economy’s prospects and no personal acquaintance with foreigners. These findings suggest that wide-ranging measures are required for expanding support for immigration. In addition, we confirm the effects of standard variables, such as education and occupation.
