In the context of fast economic growth, financial laxity and aging population of the 1998-2008 period, the Spanish economy has generated an unprecedented demand for foreign workers at the bottom of the occupational hierarchy. Foreigners have been occupying, through a selective system, the vacancy jobs and others that otherwise would not exist in low value-added activities in the regions where they were requested. This paper seeks to uncover the causes, economic (such as productive configuration, per capita income, economic activity and weight unemployment rate) and no economic (migration networks and institutional) that underlie in location decisions of foreigners in Spain.
