Consider the duration of stay of migrants in a host country. We propose a
statistical model of locally interdependent hazards in order to examine whether
interactions at the level of the neighbourhood are present and lead to social
multipliers. To this end, we propose and study a new two-stage estimation
strategy based on an inverted linear rank test statistic. Using a unique large
administrative panel dataset for the population of recent labour immigrants to
the Netherlands, we quantify the local social multipliers in several factual and
counterfactual experiments, and demonstrate that these can be substantial.
