This report, prepared for the Public Policy Institute and the New York State Job Training Partnership Council, is concerned with the impact of current U.S. migration trends on the state of New York. The report is in two parts: the main part presents and analyzes the data; the other provides a summary of the analysis. The focus of the analysis is on migrant characteristics. The data are primarily from the Public Use Microdata Samples of the 1980 U.S. census. The results indicate that New York was one of only two states to lose population between 1970 and 1980 and that there was a net loss due to migration of 650,000 persons over the decade.
Consideration is given to migrants' age distribution, household and family status, race and ethnicity, educational status, labor force status, occupation and industry, and income and poverty status. Both internal and international migration trends affecting the state are considered, as well as regional differences in migration patterns within the state.

The relationships among export agriculture, class formation, and migration in the Dominican Republic are analyzed. The author discusses the impact of successive strategies of economic development on internal migration and on international migration, primarily to the United States. The transition from subsistence agriculture to export agriculture and the consequent differentiation of classes are examined. Implications for economic development in the Dominican Republic and for U.S. labor policy are considered.

Center for the Study of Population Working Paper, No. 87-30, [1986?]. 30 pp. Florida State University, College of Social Sciences, Center for the Study of Population: Tallahassee, Florida. In Eng.
The relationship between migration and development in developing countries is examined using individual rather than aggregate data, focusing on human capital characteristics, and employing a multifaceted measure of development. "Specifically, this paper considers both in- and out-migration within Venezuela for the period 1966-71, employing a sample of 55,145 members of the 1971 labor force. Using logit analysis and related techniques, we identify socio-demographic profiles of migrants between areas with different development characteristics."
The variables considered include age, educational status, occupation, sex, and residence characteristics. The results indicate that regional differences in migration patterns are related to differences in the development status of the regions concerned.

"The purpose of this study is to examine the relationship between migration and rural development in Zambia." The author questions the hypothesis that rural-urban migration is incompatible with successful rural development and suggests that migration in Zambia appears to have been beneficial to rural development through the impact of remittances from migrants.

"This dissertation is a theoretical and empirical investigation of the individual's migration decision. It focuses on the role of imperfect information, individual differences in risk aversion, and local labor market characteristics in the individual's decision to move from or stay at a location. The individual's migration decision is modeled as the outcome of a comparison of the expected utility at an alternative market to the utility at an origin market." The focus of the empirical investigation is on the United States.
"The data is a sample of employed males from the 1979-1980 National Longitudinal Survey of Youths. Results suggest that models which do not explicitly account for risk aversion may be misspecified. Also, the location specific effects which act through amenities and the distribution of wages have significant effects on the probability of migration."
This work was prepared as a doctoral dissertation at the University of Pennsylvania.

"This study, set in the rural Philippines province of Ilocos Norte, provides evidence on personal and structural background factors and value-expectancy perceptions of place utility that predict migration intentions and behavior. Separate analyses are conducted for general intentions to move and for destination-specific migration intentions, the latter pertaining to both internal migration (Manila) and international migration (Hawaii). Logistic regression analyses applied to the data from a 1980-82 longitudinal survey show that the empirical models are highly efficient in explaining migration intentions but less efficient in explaining actual migration behavior in this Third World setting."

"A longitudinal survey approach is used in a largely rural area in the Philippines to examine consistency between migration intentions and subsequent migration behavior. Inconsistencies in movement behavior, the timing of a move, and the destination are analyzed. Discrepancies between intentions and behavior are explained in terms of unanticipated constraints and facilitators as well as changes in the conditions that precipitated the migration intention in the first place."
It is noted that "intended international movers who did not actually move in a 2-1/2 year period were thwarted mainly by legal hurdles that could not be overcome. Intended internal migrants who did not actually move remained in their origin area primarily because of changes in job opportunities or family relationships. Methodological and theoretical implications of the findings are discussed."

"This paper presents a theoretical framework for analyzing multiregional migration as a stochastic process. The equation of motion is formulated as a master equation. A quasi-deterministic meanvalue equation is derived from the master equation. The analysis is focused on the solution of the meanvalue equation. Finally it is described how the approach can be applied to empirical migration data in a study of migration processes in Canada for which the migratory stress is evaluated. The relation to static random utility theory is also established."

This is the first of a planned series of three papers in which the authors attempt to combine evolutionary migration models with stochastic utility theory. This first paper deals with the evolution of migratory systems. Such systems are first defined, and the foundations upon which their evolution is based are described. The paper concludes with a discussion of disequilibrium, which is central to the series. "Disequilibrium is related to the concept of a steady state, the existence of which is established for nonlinear migratory systems of the type discussed here."

"This paper extends the micro-level empirical literature on migration decision making by investigating the manner in which husbands' and wives' subjective place utility expectations jointly feed into migration decisions in a low-income country. The authors use expectational data [collected in 1978-1979] relating to four place utility dimensions and stated migration intentions of 376 village-resident Egyptian couples to test alternative decision models. An ordinal probit estimation technique is employed. The results of the analyses support the hypothesis of husband dominance in migration decisions in this context."

This report contains 15 papers by various authors on aspects of migration in Asia. It consists primarily of case studies of migration in Bangladesh, India, Nepal, the Philippines, Sri Lanka, Thailand, and Malaysia. The first part is concerned with rural development projects that are designed to help keep people in rural areas and lessen the motivation to migrate. The second part is concerned with projects that involve the resettlement of rural migrants in other rural areas.

"A model of family migration is developed and tested using data selected from the 1973 Costa Rican Census. To develop the model and analyze the empirical results, a household production model was chosen as the theoretical framework because of its emphasis on the household as the decision-making unit."
Using logit and ordinary least squares techniques to estimate the probability of a family migrating, the author considers the relative significance of the wife's role, the number and age of children, the number of extended family members, and the employment and educational status of family members.

The author reviews five recent studies concerning place-utility and migration intentions carried out in Egypt, Kenya,the Philippines, Thailand, and the United States. He first describes the general theoretical model underlying these studies and discusses the variations in research design. The study findings are then examined "in an effort to determine how they correspond to six causal relationships suggested by the general model....[He offers] some general conclusions regarding the overall 'fit' between findings and the model [and discusses] gaps and priorities for subsequent studies on migrant strategies, intentions, and decisions."

After a brief summary of micro theories of migration, the authors use data from a two-round survey of residents of rural Kenya aged 13-21 to classify respondents as decision processors or nondecision processors and to determine who migrates over a nine-month interval. "A simple model is developed to determine the extent to which the same factors that influence decision-processing influence who migrates. The model is tested using regression procedures....The model explains 26% of the variance in who decides, but only 10% of the variance in who actually moved. Finally, separate analyses are done of the determinants of migration for decision processors and nondecision processors."

The author uses data for Turkey for the years 1963-1973 to investigate determinants of the decision to migrate. "This study examines the links between geographic mobility and earnings from a theoretical and empirical perspective. A dynamic programming formulation of the migration decision that allows for multiple moves constitutes the theoretical model. Individuals compare location-specific earnings trajectories and choose that alternative with the best life-time prospects."
According to the author, "selectivity figures in an important way in the earnings comparisons. Differences between individuals with identical values of the observed variables in the earnings equations are shown to exist, due to heterogeneity in the costs of migration. Both the average migrant and the average non-migrant are found to realize positive returns from their decision, at least over some range of the moving costs."

"The study compares the empirical approaches to migration analysis: multiple regression, latent variables, and index numbers in studying the determinants of migration." Data are for 77 Standard Metropolitan Statistical Areas in the United States for the years 1965-1970.
The author "finds that multiple regression is superior to latent variables in investigating migration. Index number analysis is superior for complex models with multi-dimensional determinants of migration. However, the latent variable model is so flexible and holds such promise, that it should receive further study."

Some theoretical problems associated with research on migration affecting the Commonwealth Caribbean are considered. The author "locates the Caribbean migration process and research within the context of the international division of labour of postwar imperialism and the Marxist theory of accumulation on a world scale." It is suggested that this approach provides a more useful conceptual structure for examining the range of academic and policy issues associated with migration in the Caribbean.

The author attempts to build a general equilibrium model with migration possibilities on the lines of the Harris-Todaro model in which all the agents have explicit maximizing behavior. "Assumptions on wage-price rigidities allow consideration of various supply-demand configurations. One of the most interesting results is that policy recommendations derived from the usual Harris-Todaro model are not valid when excess supply prevails." The focus is on the situation in developing countries.

"This paper examines the effects of undocumented Mexican immigrants on the United States labor market. Attention is focused on geographical (or local) labor markets, and estimates are first presented of the number of undocumented Mexicans in selected such markets in 1980....The results reveal few statistically significant negative effects of undocumented immigrants on the earnings of other labor force groups, and even these are of slight magnitude."

The author seeks to identify and describe the hidden economy of the Middle East, which was created by large-scale labor migration in the region and sizeable unrecorded capital flows. According to the author, "remitted earnings, channeled largely through informal mechanisms, have generated a network of financial and economic relations that define the boundaries and characteristic features of the hidden economy. The hidden economy shapes many of the critical parameters of economic activity of the Middle East, such as exchange rates and the availability of foreign exchange." Particular attention is given to the cases of Sudan and Egypt.

This article focuses on developments concerning black labor migration to South Africa over the past 10 years. "In addition to providing statistical data, the article attempts to explain why changes have taken place, as well as to examine economic, political, and legislative developments which are likely to affect increasingly the nature of foreign-migrant flows." The results indicate that foreign migrants are playing an increasingly smaller role in the South African economy.

The author attempts "to examine the role of remittances in determining the effects of migration on the welfare of the remaining residents in a small-open economy producing both traded and non-traded goods. It is shown that if the flow of remittances exceeds a certain critical amount, the remaining residents benefit from migration even if they do not receive any of the remittances themselves." The emphasis is on the development of a theoretical model, and the geographic scope is worldwide.

"The essay attempts to estimate the size and the characteristics of expatriating and repatriating young people (aged 0-20) in relation to the Italian demographic structure and recent migration movement. Two working definitions are used, 'internal second generation' and 'second generation abroad', usually originating from the same inland regions." Government statistical sources and local level resident registries are analyzed. Tables present information concerning the numbers of expatriates and repatriates for the country as a whole for the years 1946-1984 and net migration figures for regions within Italy for the decade 1961-1971.
The authors calculate the percentages of expatriates and repatriates during the years 1958-1984 who were aged 14 and under and 65 and over and "the migratory mobility of youth categories is analysed. In the areas of high intra and out-migration flows, considerable differences in migration rates and natural growth rate are noticed. In some areas a systematic ageing of the population, a decrease in the labour force and a high dependency index are found." Potential socioeconomic and demographic consequences of the impact of migration on the dependency burden in Italy are considered.

An analysis of the spatial distribution of foreigners in France is presented using data from the 1982 census, which showed that they made up 6.8 percent of the total population. Of these "91%...lived in urban areas, two out of three in an agglomeration of 100,000 or more inhabitants, one out of three in the Paris agglomeration. Seven communities: Algerians (805,000), Portuguese (767,000), Moroccans (441,000), Italians (340,000), Spaniards (327,000), Tunisians (191,000) and Turks (122,000) represent 80.6% of the foreigners living in France."

"This paper reports estimates of the total numbers of actual legal immigrants to the United States that result from the family reunification provisions of U.S. immigration law. These immigration multipliers are estimated separately for major visa categories and by gender and are obtained in the context of an analysis of how individual characteristics of immigrants and their origin country conditions affect (a) the decision to migrate to the United States and (b) once admitted, their propensity to remain and to become U.S. citizens. The analyses combine longitudinal data on the 1971 cohort of legal immigrants and data from the 1970 Census Public Use Tapes."
The results suggest that "the actual multipliers differ importantly by visa category and that they are substantially lower than the potential multipliers and lower as well than previously supposed."

Recent migration from poor to rich Arab countries is reviewed. The focus is on migration following the oil boom of the 1970s. The implications of this migration, which is officially temporary in nature, are considered for both the migrants and the host countries concerned. The consequences of the recent oil glut are assessed for both host countries and countries to which migrants may have to return.

This book examines the problems posed in the United States by current levels of immigration, both legal and illegal. Consideration is given to the number of immigrants the country can absorb and to the problems associated with immigration, such as exploitation of migrants, lawlessness, the splintering of society, language conflict, employment, and pressures on social services. The authors also examine the need to change laws governing migration and ways of making the laws enforceable.

In Fre. with sum. in Eng.
The author examines the impact of migrant workers in Europe on such demographic developments as declining fertility, population decrease, and demographic aging. Official government and U.N. data are used to contrast age distributions of migrant and native populations in selected receiving countries in Europe.
"In his analysis of the impact of second-generation migrants on demographic development in the principal European employment countries, the author shows that in all of these countries the foreign population improves the age distribution of the population as a whole by way of reinforcing the weight of the younger age groups in relation to the older groups. The ageing of the national populations...is thus countered by the presence of second-generation migrants."

An overview of foreign populations in selected European countries is presented using data for the early 1980s from government and international agency sources. Among the topics discussed are the foreign population as a percentage of the total population, the economically active population, and the population under age 19. Particular attention is given to the situation in France, including developments in net migration, the distribution of young foreign workers by type of economic activity, and the labor force participation of female foreigners.

"International labour migration involves 20 million workers from 'middle income' and 'Third World' countries. The article reviews both theoretical propositions and empirical evidence on its effects on regional disparities in labour exporting countries. It shows the variety of ways in which the departure of emigrants affects the uneven development of rural and urban areas there by changing the volume and nature of production as well as welfare conditions.

"The paper examines the impact of both legal and illegal immigration on the dynamics of labor markets in Peninsular Malaysia....The focus of the paper is on the extent to which foreign labor inflows stabilize labor market disequilibrium, the manner in which different types of immigrant labor affect labor market segmentation, and the impact on the productivity and mobility of the local labor force."
The author concludes that "for countries that rely upon imports to augment local labor supply or to deal with labor market distortions, the key issues are whether such workers are indeed flexible or temporary and whether their presence may not in fact hamper the adjustment process in local labor markets and the structural transformation of a developing economy."

An analysis of migration from the overseas French departments to metropolitan France is presented using data from official sources, including the 1982 census. "Immigration from the overseas departments and territories [to] metropolitan France has grown continuously for nearly 30 years. Most of those immigrants come from three departments: Martinique, Guadeloupe, Reunion. The economic motives being the main reasons of leaving, most immigrants in metropolitan France are young and [economically] active. Most of them are also women."
The author notes that the characteristics of this migration favor the development of family life and of a definable community. The rapid growth of this community is seen as evidence that this migration is in the nature of a permanent settlement rather than a temporary labor migration.

52:30547 Martin, Philip L. Illegal immigration and the colonization of the American labor market. CIS Paper, No. 1, Jan 1986. 52 pp. Center for Immigration Studies: Washington, D.C. In Eng.
The author discusses changes in the American labor force and in immigration flows to the United States during the last 20 years. He "finds that the ready availability of illegal-alien workers in major industries and geographical regions is having far-reaching and often unanticipated consequences for patterns of investment, employment and business competition in the United States. He documents the displacement of American workers by illegal immigrants in agriculture, food processing, services and construction, analyzing the processes of network recruiting and subcontracting that lead ultimately to the exclusion of American citizens and legal residents from many work places."
The author contends that "our acquiescence in illegal immigration has become a selective labor subsidy that has contributed in the last two decades to distorted investment decisions, slower growth, and the proliferation of low-skill, low-productivity jobs in the American labor market."

The author examines recent trends in labor migration from Egypt, particularly movements to Arab countries. International Labour Office estimates for 1975 and Egyptian government estimates for the period 1976-1982 are evaluated. The distribution of this labor force by occupation and by sex for 1982 and 1984 is also outlined. The author discusses problems faced by this labor force and assesses the impact of external migration on the Egyptian national labor force.

The relationship between migration and agricultural development in the Caribbean is examined. The data, collected by survey, concern the islands of Nevis, Montserrat, and Saint Lucia. The results show that migration is not associated with agricultural innovation or the use of specific technical inputs and that it frequently has a negative impact on agricultural productivity and attitudes toward farming.

"This article develops a method for estimating the probability of emigration conditional on the observed characteristics of individuals. In addition, it is shown how to calculate the mean, standard error, and confidence intervals of the conditional probability of emigration given a random sample of emigrants. The technique is illustrated by providing statistically consistent estimates of the probability an Italian would emigrate to the United States in 1901 and 1911, conditional on personal attributes."

The present situation concerning immigration in France is analyzed. In particular, the author considers how France should treat the more than 3 million foreign immigrants, many of whom have been in the country for a considerable number of years. The need to encourage a harmonious, democratic, and equitable approach to the treatment of immigrants, rather than a xenophobic and anti-immigrant approach, is stressed. The study includes an estimate of the number of immigrants in France, their reasons for migration, and their countries of origin.
The author also reviews the migration policies developed over the period 1981-1985. He concludes that a level of multiculturalism in France is desirable and rejects the notion that immigrants must adopt all French customs and culture at the expense of those of their countries of origin.

An attempt is made to estimate levels of immigration to Venezuela for the period 1971-1981. The focus is on migration from Colombia attracted by the developments in the oil industry. The estimates include both legal and illegal immigration and are based on both official data and indirect estimation. The effect of the recent economic recession in Venezuela on international migration trends is noted.

This in-depth study of the migration process is primarily concerned with recent Cuban and Mexican immigration into the United States. A theoretical overview of labor migration and a historical survey of immigration to the United States from 1890 to 1979 are first presented. The political and socioeconomic circumstances confronting the Mexicans and the Cubans in their home countries prior to migration are contrasted.
Information is presented concerning place of residence, social adaptation, labor market participation, and income for the two immigrant groups. These data are from interviews conducted at the time of the immigrants' arrival in 1973, again in 1976, and finally in 1979. Detailed, empirical findings are presented in 111 tables and an appendix. Particular attention is given to the Cuban enclave in Miami, the economic and occupational mobility of Mexican immigrants, immigrants' perceptions of the United States, and the social relationships of immigrants. Finally, the theoretical and practical implications of the major trends observed in this study are summarized.

The author focuses on the role of remittances in labor-sending economies. "Recent research has tended to focus on enumerating the costs and benefits of remittances. This paper proposes an alternative perspective and delineates the 'Remittances System' as a heuristic to clarify intermediate relationships between determinants and effects of remittances. Using the heuristic as a framework for review of recent literature concerning remittances, the paper identifies gaps in currently available research and argues for greater focus upon the social and political consequences of remittance flows."

The author attempts "to estimate the short-run determinants of immigration to the United States from 27 source countries. A set of hypotheses compatible with human capital theory is suggested to explain variations over time in the flow of migration to the U.S."
It is found that "a variety of forces are at work in motivating U.S. immigration from the various source countries. Thus, no single set of hypotheses may be applied in a general analysis. Furthermore, there is evidence that U.S. immigration laws have distorted the way in which migrants respond to short term variations in economic variables."

In Ger. with sum. in Eng.
The international migration of labor to Europe is examined in three parts. "The first part deals with the mobility of factors of production within the development of economic theory. No reasonable hypotheses on the international migration of labour were developed because labour immobility was assumed. The second part discusses motives for, forms of, and restrictions on, international labour mobility. The main point in this part consists of giving up the assumption of homogeneous labour quality. The third part treats the economic effects of international labour migration for the workers' countries of origin...."
Factors considered include the labor market, human capital, development, and balance of payments. "These four areas are examined in the southern European countries of Portugal, Spain, Italy, Yugoslavia, Greece, and Turkey. The empirical results seem to justify the authors' conclusion that international labour mobility should be given more weight in forming international economic theory and policy."

Internal migration trends in France for the period 1954-1982 are reviewed. The author notes that although the age structure of migrants has remained relatively constant, the geographic flows have altered substantially. Such changes include a decline in the attractiveness of the Ile-de-France region to migrants and an increase in migration back to place of birth. A general increase in the spatial distribution of the population is noted, involving the development of rural areas under urban influence, a decline in the growth of suburbs and in the population of town centers, and an increase in the popularity of small towns and remote rural areas.

The author examines the turnaround migration trend evident in the United States in the 1970s, which resulted in increased population growth rates in nonmetropolitan areas accompanied by declining growth rates in cities, particularly those in the northeastern and north central sections of the country.
"Several hypotheses which have been offered in economic and demographic literature as explanations for the turnaround are investigated in this study. The investigation uses tabular presentations, ordinary least squares regression models, and logit models in conjunction with 1980 census microdata. The results indicate that the turnaround was not a short-lived phenomenon, rather it continued throughout the 1970s....The general consensus in economic literature, which maintains that migration decisions are functions of both economic and noneconomic factors is supported by the results."

The models are estimated using 1975 to 1980 migration data for the 48 contiguous states of the United States. Common borders and bordering metropolitan areas do influence interstate population flows. Models lacking a more detailed specification of space will lose explanatory power and suffer from biases."

In Por. with sum. in Eng.
Problems related to the analysis of data from the 1970 and 1980 censuses of Brazil concerning migration are explored. The author first notes that the 1980 census used new methods of data collection that make comparisons with previous censuses difficult. Procedures to overcome these problems are suggested. The inclusion for the first time in 1980 of data on intra-municipal migration is noted.
"A procedure is proposed to estimate the intra-municipal migration during the decade, and to add it to estimates of other types of migration, in order to avoid double counting. Internal migration estimates for the 1960s and 1970s are presented for three States (Pernambuco, Minas Gerais [and] Sao Paulo). Special attention is paid to the different concepts implied by estimates obtained through direct and indirect measurement."

The author discusses interstate migration in Australia from 1966 to 1981 and seeks to "(a) describe the sources of interstate migration data available and their limitations; (b) assess the reliability of the various data sources; (c) discuss the reliability of derived postcensal interstate migration estimates for the period 1966-81; and (d) describe the method currently used for producing postcensal interstate migration estimates." The main data sources considered are five-year population censuses, household surveys, interstate transfers of family allowances, and electoral roll transfers.
It is concluded that "the measurement of interstate migration, relying as it does primarily on data obtained from administrative sources, will remain a relatively difficult exercise. In a situation where data are obtained as a by-product of an administrative operation, the statistical function will inevitably be of secondary importance....This can easily result in sudden and unexpected changes in the quality of the data obtained with corresponding implications for the ensuing interstate migration estimates." Ongoing efforts to monitor reliability and to improve collection techniques are mentioned.

"One aspect of [U.S.] migration which has been largely overlooked by researchers is the migration of people receiving public assistance benefits. The migration, or lack of migration, of these people has clear policy implications. Poor people put numerous demands on the locality where they reside, including demands for welfare benefits. The research presented in this paper reveals that movers receiving AFDC payments are able to improve their economic standing more than those who do not move." Data are from the State and Metropolitan Area Data Book 1982 computer tape file.
"It is also shown that states with a net in-migration of public assistance recipients but net out-migration of non-recipients do have higher benefit levels than states with net out-migration of recipients and net in-migration of non-recipients. Employment and income data do not show the same differences between the state types."

Data from the 1960, 1970, and 1980 censuses of Thailand are used to examine changing patterns of internal migration over time. "Throughout the period, the census measures indicate a high degree of stability; no census found more than 15 percent of the population living outside the province of birth and fewer than 7 percent were identified in any period as interprovincial five-year migrants."
The results show a slight increase in lifetime migration in each period and a recent rise in interregional migration. "The findings also document that five-year interprovincial migration increased between 1955-60 and 1965-70 but declined during 1975-80. Especially noteworthy between 1970 and 1980 were the decline in interprovincial migration within regions and the rise in interregional movement. Concurrently, rural-to-rural migration declined sharply and movement between urban places became more prevalent."

"This paper uses a unique set of [U.S.] data to estimate the magnitude of the linkages between employment changes and net employment migration. A simple simultaneous system is specified and estimated for 17 consecutive years. In an average year two extra jobs attract about one additional net migrant, and one additional net migrant has a direct effect on area employment of almost 1.4 jobs." The data are from the One-Percent Social Security Continuous Work History Sample and are for the years 1958 to 1975. The changes in this relationship over time as the economic situation varies are analyzed.

The factors considered were utilized in the 1985 publication "Places Rated Almanac" and include climate, housing, health care, crime, transportation, education, recreation, arts, and economics. "The purpose of this paper is both to analyze several alternative methods by which the nine 'Places Rated' indicators have been combined in previous studies, and to estimate a new system of weights for combining such indicators from a multivariate model of metropolitan out-migration."
In this article, the authors examine out-migration of metropolitan households during the years 1975-1980. "Coefficient estimates from a multivariate model of out-migration form the basis for a ranking of metropolitan areas in the third section. Also included are comparisons among this and other studies of both the implicit weights employed against the 'Places Rated' scores...to derive both overall measures of urban life quality, and how such quality varies by city size."

"This study of a random sample of U.S. white wives explored the relationship between their pre-1970 fertility and their migration status in 1970-1975. Objectives were to determine (1) whether migrants from nonmetro origins had higher pre-1970 fertility than migrants from metro origins, (2) whether migrants to nonmetro destinations had higher pre-1970 fertility than those to metro destinations, and (3) whether the pre-1970 fertility of migrants and nonmigrants differed."
The results indicate some fertility differences among older women according to area of origin, but little among younger women. The authors argue "that the findings represent the convergence in fertility levels between nonmetro and metro populations."

The authors examine internal migration in the United States and emphasize the importance of decomposing total migration into contiguous and noncontiguous migration flows when analyzing employment change.
"In this study, a simultaneous-equation model containing two equations, one for migration and the other for employment growth, has been specified in a general form and estimated by the 2SLS method for total, contiguous and noncontiguous migration flows. Results obtained from the use of 1970 Census data show that noncontiguous migration behaves significantly [differently] from contiguous migration, and that noncontiguous migration, rather than total migration, should be used for the study of factors affecting interstate migration. Results also indicate that the log-linear functional form commonly used in empirical studies cannot be accepted statistically."

A generalized life cycle model is proposed that takes into account recent changes in household and family structure. The benefits of such a model for the analysis of intra-regional migration are then discussed, and hypotheses are formulated that suggest different migration patterns in the various life cycle phases. These hypotheses are then tested using official data for the city of Essen, Federal Republic of Germany.

The model fits the data well. The Canadian migration pattern is shown to be similar to those of several European countries in terms of sex differences and the metropolitan versus nonmetropolitan contrast."

The author examines frontier social mobility in Costa Rica using data from field research carried out in 1976-1977 and from a follow-up study conducted in 1985. He proposes that current conceptions of frontier social mobility may be overly pessimistic and that new opportunities do in fact arise on the frontier. "These proposals shall be examined by reevaluating the results of several past studies in the light of new evidence from the recent frontier of Pejibaye, Costa Rica. This new evidence strongly suggests that opportunities for upward mobility were (1) available to even the most impoverished segments of Costa Rican society and (2) successfully utilized by a fair proportion of lower-class individuals who actually migrated to the frontier."
Information from 218 households and from three individual case studies in Costa Rica is examined, and comparisons with frontier experiences in the United States and Brazil are outlined.

The determinants of intermetropolitan migration in Canada over the past 30 years are analyzed. The emphasis of the study is on the author's hypothesis that the influence of traditional market forces on migration diminishes as societies become increasingly wealthy. Such traditional factors include wages, cost of living variables, and situations of economic stress involving unemployment or poverty. The author argues that in wealthier societies, people are less motivated by monetary considerations and that such societies cushion the consequences of economic stress through provisions such as unemployment insurance, which reduces the pressures on people to migrate. Data are taken primarily from official sources.

Recent changes in migration patterns in Mali are analyzed. The author notes that dependence on the additional income from labor migration has increased as employment opportunities abroad have declined, with a resulting pressure on internal destinations, particularly the capital city of Bamako. A trend away from temporary toward permanent migration to the city is noted. A continued attachment to the place of origin, including the sending of remittances, is observed.

"Spatial differentiation in regional welfare is often assumed to be one of the most important explanatory factors in individual migration behaviour. By the weight of 'push' against 'pull', migrants walk in step with the unequal distribution of socio-economic opportunities. In the case of Ciudad Juarez [Mexico], these 'structural factors' only appear to have determined migration in its first stages; especially recently 'non-structural' factors seem to be at the root of the ever-increasing process."

The author describes and compares land settlement in various developing countries, focusing on the movement of people to underutilized agricultural areas. "The purpose of this article is fourfold: first, to discuss the performance of settlement programmes, concentrating on the extent to which they have achieved their population redistribution and other objectives; second, to analyse major economic and social problems confronting them; third, to identify factors that have contributed to their success or failure; and, fourth, to assess alternative policy options."
This analysis of land settlement programs "suggests that so far they have made no more than a modest contribution to the solution of the problems of population distribution, unemployment and poverty."

The authors construct a theoretical framework for analyzing factors influencing international refugee movements. "On the basis of detailed case studies by the authors of the principal refugee flows generated in Asia, Africa, and Latin America from approximately 1960 to the present, it was found that international factors often intrude both directly and indirectly on the major types of social conflict that trigger refugee flows, and tend to exacerbate their effects. Refugees are also produced by conflicts that are manifestly international, but which are themselves often related to internal social conflict among the antagonists."

Return migration of Finnish migrants to Sweden during the period 1968-1976 is first described using data from the Swedish population register. "Second, we examine the sensitivity of return migration to economic conditions at both destination and origin. The model proposed allows the relative weights attached to information on the two locations to vary as the interval of absence lengthens. Econometric evidence indicates that conditions at the original location appear to exert increasing influence on the decision to return the longer the interval of absence."

"This dissertation examines the effects of seasonal migration of rural-to-rural male migrants [in Guatemala] on the fertility of their wives who stay behind. More specifically, this research seeks to determine through what mechanisms migration causes changes in fertility, i.e. the effects of migration on the proximate determinants of fertility. Given their purported effects on reducing natural fertility, both nutritional status and morbidity are taken into account." The data are from a longitudinal study of malnutrition and from life histories from a sample of men and women living in rural villages in Guatemala.
"Migration was found to affect the timing of births rather than completed fertility. The effects of the proximate determinants on fertility differ by migrant status, with the effects usually being stronger on non-migrants. Lower nutritional status was found to be negatively associated with fertility, while morbidity had the opposite association. Migrants were found to have higher morbidity, but equivalent nutritional status."

"The central concern of this study is to determine the role of return migration in the changing economic and noneconomic determinants of state in-migration....This study compares the selective characteristics of lifetime and five-year nonmigrants, and primary, secondary and return migrants using Public Use Sample data [for the United States] for 1960, 1970, and 1980. In addition, it analyzes four economic and six noneconomic determinants of migration for 1970 and 1980 using a data set that includes published data on state migration and socioeconomic characteristics."
The author finds that "there has been a shift from economic to noneconomic reasons for migrating from 1970 to 1980. In addition, the relative proportion of primary, secondary and return migration has changed over time. Contrary to the hypothesis, however, the trend from economic to noneconomic determinants of migration has not been related to changes in the proportion of return migration in the stream."

Using data from a village in the interior of rural Portugal since 1981, the authors attempt to develop a peasant strategy of emigration. This strategy is defined as the development and expansion of the family's landholdings through earnings obtained by temporary labor migration abroad. The authors conclude that such a strategy has made viable rural economies that might otherwise have foundered.

The authors elaborate a method for the indirect estimation of the number of foreigners departing France during the intercensal period 1975-1982. The estimation procedure is twofold. First, the actual count of the foreign population is taken from the first census and adjusted to account for natural increase, the entrance of new foreigners, and the acquisition and loss of French citizenship. Second, the count of foreign residents from the subsequent census is subtracted from this estimated figure in order to derive the volume of departures.
The analysis indicates that approximately 530,000 foreigners, or 75,000 annually, left France in the years studied, representing a decline from the preceding intercensal period. Information concerning the nationalities of those departing is included.

The authors examine "the social and psychological context of rural-urban mobility decisions in Thailand. A model of rural-urban mobility decision making is examined to improve our understanding of convergences and divergences between mobility plans and mobility behavior."
Using interview data collected in six villages in northeast Thailand during July-September 1978 and July-August 1979, the model is tested for movement from the home village to Bangkok and to northeast Thai towns, respectively. The model "incorporates the following explanatory factors: social background variables (age, education, marital status, and recent mobility history), urban social contacts, information about urban areas, evaluations of alternative destinations, and mobility plans."

"In this paper we question the pioneering work of Todaro, which states that rural-to-urban labor migration in less developed countries (LDCs) is an individual response to a higher urban expected income. We demonstrate that rural-to-urban labor migration is perfectly rational even if urban expected income is lower than rural income. We achieve this under a set of fairly stringent conditions: an individual decision-making entity, a one-period planning horizon, and global risk aversion. We obtain the result that a small chance of reaping a high reward is sufficient to trigger rural-to-urban labor migration."

An analysis of black migration to the Pretoria-Witwatersrand-Vereeniging (PWV) urban area of South Africa is presented. The data are from a survey of 1,443 males and females carried out in 1982. Migration differentials are analyzed by ethnic group, age, and sex. It is noted that nearly all migrations were direct to the PWV area from place of birth without intermediate migration destinations. Motivation for migration is also analyzed, and family reasons were found to exceed economic reasons, unlike most migration patterns in developing countries.

"Recent findings on India have pointed to the importance of the rural caste structure to rural-urban migration and the creation of (partially) segmented urban labor markets. By considering cross-sectional evidence from Iran and by viewing differential access to land, instead of castes, as the determinant of the migrants' background, the implication of this view for the impact of migration on urban inequality is examined. It is found that where migrants are from a landless group urban inequality increases and where they are from a landed group it declines, ceteris paribus. Urban inequality is measured by the construction of an urban housing shares index from the census data."

The author suggests that most studies of rural-urban migration in the third world today are based on the European experience during the Industrial Revolution. He contends that the assumption that most migrants find wage employment in a rapidly growing modern industrial sector is not valid, particularly in Western Africa, where the pace of industrialization lags behind the rate of urbanization. Data from Nigeria are used to show that many potential migrants are aware of this situation and migrate seeking self-employment in informal sector trading activities.

"The aim of [this] study is to show the impact of the rural exodus [in Turkey] on the demographic structure and the economic situation of the rural areas." The data are from interviews conducted in 1980 and 1981 in the village of Yagbasan and four neighboring villages in Sivas province. The findings show that the volume of rural out-migration has increased over time and that there has been an effect on rural land use structure and settlements. However, the demographic structure of rural areas has not changed substantially as a result of out-migration.

52:30621 Zheng, Guizhen; Guo, Shenyang; Zhang, Yunfan; Wang, Jufen. A preliminary inquiry into the problem of floating population in Shanghai city proper. Renkou Yanjiu, No. 3, May 29, 1985. 2-7 pp. Beijing, China. In Chi.
The authors first note that the city of Shanghai has China's largest floating population, defined as those who live within the city limits but do not qualify as long-term residents. A three percent random sampling of temporary residents and all visitors taken on August 10, 1984, yielded a count of approximately 590,000 persons. Of these, 65 percent are short-term residents of Shanghai homes, hotels, and collectives. The economic effects of this mobile population on Shanghai are explained, and policies for dealing with the situation are suggested.
