This textbook, designed for students at the undergraduate level, examines migration both as a product of rational, individual decisions and as a result of strong social determinants. Particular attention is given to labor market issues and to the role of the state in developing migrant policy. The geographic focus is on the United Kingdom.
"Examples are also drawn from France, Italy, Germany, Ireland, Australia and the USA to demonstrate the characteristics of internal and external migration, urbanization, the formation of ethnic communities, return migration, the problems of migrant identity and the extent to which migration is a universal dynamic of social change. The author concludes by taking an overall view of the impact of migration on the social structure and its challenge to the 'settled' communities."

"The questions asked in many population censuses on place-of-residence at one or several fixed past dates allow the number of migrants during a specific period of time to be calculated. However, the questions asked in the censuses are retrospective, so that the migrants who died or emigrated abroad during the period considered are not included. There is no way of estimating the number of migrants who emigrated abroad; on the other hand, a simple method is available to estimate the number of migrants who died. In this paper this method of estimation is applied to data from the Italian censuses of 1971 and 1981."

In Ger. with sum. in Eng.
Labor emigration from Yemen is analyzed, with particular reference to its impact on the economy of the country and on patterns of internal migration. The first part of the book describes the development of labor emigration over time. The focus is on recent migrations to the oil-producing Arab countries, particularly Saudi Arabia, and the author estimates that about one-third of the total labor force was working in Saudi Arabia in 1980. The second part considers the impact of emigration on economic conditions in the Yemen, using the example of the urban building sector of the economy.

"In this endeavor to incorporate net migration in a model of population growth, we have found that when net maternity rates are held constant, birth trajectories can be traced in several examples. We have basically experimented with (a) unchanging age-specific net migration rates and also with (b) constant number of net migrants with unchanging age composition. In most cases, the birth trajectory approaches an exponential pattern of growth with two interesting exceptions. When the intrinsic rate of growth is negative, the population approaches stationarity in the second example. Also a linear trend is found in the same example, when the net reproduction rate is equal to one."

Literature on migration in the United Kingdom during the past 20 years is reviewed. The author argues that there is no cohesive sociology of migration that can be identified. Instead, the literature has largely focused on the topic of race relations. Three perspectives on the study of migration are identified: "the political economy of racism, the sociology of ethnic relations and an eclectic body of literature...[defined] as a sociology of migration, though it is dominated by a structuralist perspective."

53:10520 Bilderback, Loy. Migration. Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists, Vol. 42, No. 4, Apr 1986. 33-7 pp. Chicago, Illinois. In Eng.
The author argues that current high levels of international migration are primarily the result of the declines in mortality that have occurred in developing countries over the past 50 years. These resulted in a growth of population of working age that far exceeds the absorption capacity of developing economies. The author suggests that the economic integration of major areas of out-migration into the economic systems of the industrialized world is the only lasting solution to the problems posed.

The authors examine the economic consequences of recent immigration to the United States using official data and published studies. After consideration of the historical perspective to this migration, attention is given to the impact of immigrants on the U.S. labor market, the assimilation of immigrants, and the immigrants' use of transfer income. The authors conclude that "(i) The aggregate impacts of foreign workers on the earnings and employment of native workers are quite small, but differ for selected population subgroups and high ethnic density labor markets. (ii) Immigrants who arrived during the 1970s are less skilled than earlier arrivals, and their earnings will remain substantially below those of natives throughout their working lives. (iii) The evidence on immigrants' receipt of public assistance income is inconclusive."

53:10522 Bulusu, Lak. Recent patterns of migration from and to the United Kingdom. Population Trends, No. 46, Winter 1986. 35-9 pp. London, England. In Eng.
"Since 1983 more people have come to live in the United Kingdom than have left and the balance of international migration has shown an increasing gain. Previously there was usually a loss--of a fluctuating size. In terms of the gross flows the main change has been a drop in the number of people leaving the United Kingdom; recently these have been about 170 thousand annually whereas twenty years ago the figure was over 300 thousand. On the other hand, the numbers coming to the UK, which includes those returning after a period abroad, have been stable at around 200 thousand for many years; however in 1985 this number rose to 232 thousand....This article looks at these changes in terms of countries involved, citizenship, country of birth, age, sex and occupation of the migrants."

The author identifies two factors contributing to the increase in the number of illegal migrant workers in the United States. The first is the complex system of legal immigration, which contributes to massive evasion. The second is the preference by many employers for hiring illegal aliens. The author concludes that the proposed changes in U.S. immigration laws, even though they include employer sanctions, are likely to prove as ineffective as previous measures adopted in several states some 10 years ago that also penalized employers hiring illegal aliens. It is suggested that the economic pressures leading to large-scale labor immigration will prove stronger than political pressures to control such immigration.

The author examines the role of emigration in the demographic transition in the Caribbean region. General population trends in the Caribbean are reviewed, with attention to the situation in 1950 and to changes between 1950 and 1980. Emigration from the region is shown to have peaked during the 1960s, with a marked decline in fertility following in the 1970s and 1980s. The author discusses the extent to which emigration should be considered a causal factor, a catalyst, or an independent phenomenon relative to the fertility decline.

"This paper reviews the recent literature on the demographic and social aspects of immigrant adaptation [in the United States]. Demographic dimensions include age and family structure, fertility behavior, intermarriage, and residential segregation. Social dimensions refer to native-language retention, English-language acquisition, and educational attainment. Most studies conclude that there are few significant differences between the grandchildren of immigrants and the native population overall....There is also evidence suggesting that the success of the immigrant generation in adjusting to life in the United States increases with their length of residence." The focus is on Hispanic and Asian immigrants.

Trends in immigration to Canada since World War II are reviewed. The period following the war was dominated by migration from Europe. However, since the passage of 1967 and 1976 laws that abolished ethnic criteria for immigration in favor of the selection of immigrants based on their potential capacity to integrate into Canadian society, migration from Asia has surpassed that from Europe. The concentration of French-speaking immigrants in Quebec is noted.

The large-scale migration that occurred during the oil boom of the 1970s and early 1980s from the poorer to the richer Arab countries is analyzed. The author first considers the nature and dimensions of this migration and the adequacy of the data available. The labor-exporting and labor-importing Arab countries are then considered separately. Consideration is given to possible future trends and their likely economic, social, and political consequences.

"In this paper we state and prove several results which may arise as a result of international migration taking place under asymmetric information. We note that whereas under symmetric information several distinct skill groups along the skill continuum may migrate, under asymmetric information there will only be one distinct migratory group along the skill continuum; that asymmetric information will not increase and may decrease the top skill level migrating; and that devices which tend to restore informational symmetry can give rise to interesting patterns and welfare implications of migration." Two theoretical examples are given. "First, in the presence of signalling, a U shaped pattern of migration with respect to skill may emerge. Second, an increase in the welfare of the low skill migrant workers can occur if eventual discovery is introduced."

The sociological literature concerning international migration from Greece since 1960 is reviewed. The author suggests that a Marxist approach to the analysis of European migration is likely to be more useful than a country-oriented study: using this approach, migration can be analyzed in the context of the relationship between industrialized countries in the center receiving migrants and nonindustrialized countries on the periphery that send migrants.

However, they are above the national average in terms of socioeconomic status."

"This paper aims to provide an overview of immigration and ageing, and to highlight some implications of the numbers and characteristics of the immigrant elderly for the development of policies for aged care [in Australia]. Particular attention is given to the issues of demographic ageing, family support and institutionalisation." The author uses data from recent official and other published sources to examine the elderly immigrant population by birthplace and racial origin, sex, proportion institutionalized, and proportion handicapped. It is found that "insufficient recognition of the widespread lack of fluency in English among the ethnic minority aged is the greatest obstacle to achieving adequate provision for their needs."

"This article demonstrates that foreign worker dependence in the [Persian] Gulf dates from the establishment of the oil industry in the early twentieth century. The composition of labor inflows [was] mainly determined by political and strategic, rather than commercial, concerns. Contrasting patterns of labor force composition evolved between those areas under British control, which imported labor from the Indian sub-continent, and the independent Saudi Arabia where labor was drawn from more diverse sources including the Italian settlers in Eritrea."

"The article examines the broad effects of economic recession on immigrant labour flows into the Arab Gulf states. Attention is focussed on Kuwait which has experienced a significant reduction in new expatriate labour inflows since 1983. At the same time, however, the increasing rate of work permit renewals and of job transfers within the labour market suggest a growing stability of the expatriate workforce. As a result it is concluded that the economic recession may not result in a significant draw-down on expatriate labour stocks."

The authors examine Turkish labor migration to Western Europe prior to 1973 and to the Middle East since that date. "The growth, organization and characteristics of these two phases in Turkish migration history are compared and contrasted. Particular emphasis is paid to the patterns of migrant worker origin and rates of emigration in the two periods. During the period 1961-73 the pattern of migration was dominated by the metropolitan and developed areas of Western Turkey. The re-direction of migration to Saudi Arabia, Libya and Iraq has been accompanied by a contraction and eastward shift in the main areas of migrant origins. Developments in the pattern of migrant worker origins are related to changes in the skill composition of the migrants and the mechanisms of the migration process. Opportunities for the employment of Turkish workers in the Arab world appear to have peaked and, although it has produced some short-term financial advantages, it has had little effect on Turkey's employment problems."

A method of simulating labor flows among 19 countries located in Western Asia and Northern Africa is presented. "The proposed systemic approach is similar in many ways to the well-known RAS approach for updating biproportional matrices. It differs from the RAS approach in that it is capable of greater interpretability and manipulability for policy purposes. The systemic approach also sets forth the possibility of defining certain parameters or movements in a behavioral fashion, relating economic variables to the modeling effort."

The author examines migration patterns in Southern Europe during the 1970s and early 1980s, noting particularly the reduction in migration northward from this region. It is noted that "departure potential remains sizable in certain areas of Portugal, Spain, Southern Italy, and most particularly, of Turkey and Yugoslavia. Transoceanic migrations have by no means ceased, as new flows of skilled labor have, since 1974, gone towards Arab states endowed with petrol (oil) revenues. And yet, the paramount fact is most surely the emergence and the proliferation in Greece, Spain, and (especially) in Italy, of basically clandestine (illegal) immigration. This movement is due to the convergence of several factors: economic and demographic disparities between northern and southern shores of the Mediterranean Sea, the sealing-off of borders in Northwestern Europe and the 'carry-over' effect upon nations of 'transit', the extent of the flow of refugees, and--most particularly--the appeal provided by the development, in these new employer countries, of an underground economy accompanied by the extension into industry of the practice of 'undeclared' work. And notwithstanding the series of rules lastly drawn up in Spain and in Greece, such forms of clandestine (unauthorized) migration appear highly likely--to say the least--to persist."

The authors review the results of recent research on the economic impact of undocumented Mexican immigration to the United States in order to provide the grounds for assessing the consequences of recent legislation.
According to the authors, "these studies provide consistent evidence that legal and undocumented immigration hardly affects wages in U.S. labor markets. That these are the overall effects across labor markets is fairly certain. However, several issues are still unclear: (1) the dynamics of the labor market itself in its ability or inability to expand in the context of an increased supply of labor, (2) how individual workers in particular occupations or industries are affected by increased immigration, and (3) the impact on labor markets like Los Angeles where immigration is particularly great."

"The untested premise of trade liberalizing U.S. development programs such as the Caribbean Basin Initiative is that commodity trade can substitute for international labor migration. Analysis of U.S. tomato producing regions in Sinaloa, Mexico and Florida suggests that the effect of trade liberalization on international labor migration is uncertain." The emphasis is on how such development projects might affect the flow of illegal migrants to the United States.

"This dissertation examines the determinants of interstate migration in the U.S. between 1965 and 1970. Data are brought to bear on three problems: (1) the effects of the spatial location of the origin and destination; (2) the effects that interdependencies among states have on the flow of migrants; and (3) the determinants of circulation and redistribution. Numerous propositions are examined, which link the volume of state-to-state migration to economic characteristics of states and to their spatial relationships with other states."
While fundamental spatial regularities in migration are noted, "no evidence is found at the macrolevel to sustain popular microlevel hypotheses involving a rational calculation of the costs and benefits of migration." Trends in 1975-1980 are briefly examined in order to observe developments over time.
This work was prepared as a doctoral dissertation at the University of Michigan.

The author uses Current Population Survey data to analyze the selectivity of interregional migrants moving between the North and the South of the United States for the periods 1970-1975, 1975-1980, and 1980-1983. Six selectivity characteristics--education, housing tenure, race, occupation, age, and dual-worker families--are related to time- and stream-specific migration.
The analyses show that "there was little change in characteristics of migrants during the 1970's and a substantial decrease in interregional migration in the early 1980's. The data also show that, except for the migration of persons aged 65-74, there are relatively few differences in the rates of migration in each stream....Persons with more education and renters are more likely to have moved from one region to another." Economic and social explanations for migration differentials are considered.

"A flexible methodology for explaining interregional migration in terms of relevant socioeconomic variables is set forth in this paper. Concerned with setting observation against theory, it makes use of (1) the nested logit model as a theoretical substratum and (2) the maximum quasi-likelihood method as a method for parameter estimation and statistical inference. Application to interprovincial migration data over a 22-year period (1961-1962 to 1982-1983) shows that, in Canada, migration does not appear to serve well as an equalizer of economic opportunities."

Population trends in Denmark from 1950 to 1980 are examined, with particular attention to regional migration patterns from 1971 to 1980. Theoretical aspects of population and migration are first reviewed. Next, population trends as a whole in Denmark from 1950 to 1980 are summarized. Regional population dynamics are then considered, including fertility and mortality as well as migration. The factors affecting migration are analyzed using a simple neoclassical model, with particular reference to regional wage differentials and the labor market.

"Approximations of the inter-state migration process in India by three logically different models reveal surprisingly similar results. The 1961 census data on place of birth by place of enumeration were employed for this study." A simple Markov chain, an unconditional semi-Markov model, and a conditional semi-Markov model were used to approximate interstate migration. The authors find that "if the pattern of migration noticed at the time of the 1961 census continues, more than 60 percent of India's population would be located in the states of Assam, Madhya Pradesh, Maharashtra, and West Bengal put together."

"This article examines some aspects of redistribution of population on the basis of internal migration data provided by the 1971 census. Its scope is in India limited to the assessment of the quantum and proportion of the redistribution at the national and state levels and to the change in internal migration during 1961-1971 on the basis of birth place statistics. A comparison of POB (place of birth) and POLAR (place of last residence) migrants is also referred to in the discussion. Brief [analyses] of types of migration streams in the intra-district, inter-district and inter-state levels are assessed to indicate the composition of migration. Certain characteristics of migrants in urban areas are also presented...."

The author uses the intra-urban migration model developed by John Turner in the early 1960s to examine population movements in the city of Arequipa, Peru. Ways in which the model applies in the case of Arequipa are summarized, as are quantitative and qualitative differences between the model and the Arequipa study. The Turner model employs economic (industrialization level), demographic (level of rural-to-urban migration), and political (housing policy) criteria to distinguish a city's transitional phase. "According to these criteria Arequipa clearly belongs to the mid-transitional phase. The pattern of intra-urban migration, however, shows a mixture of Turner's mid and late transitional phases (e.g. center acts still as a reception area, but at the same time a major number of migrants settle directly in the periphery)....The town itself has a limited industrial development and hardly any municipal housing policy worth mentioning....It is above all the demographic factor in combination with the town's morphology (a large colonial-type center, etc.) which in the case of Arequipa regulates the pattern of intra-urban migration."

"This paper analyzes the determinants of [U.S.] interstate inmigration and outmigration for persons aged 5 to 54 and for persons aged 55 and over. The paper finds several similarities between the sets of migration determinants, but several potentially important differences emerge as well. Perhaps most striking among these are that states with high earnings of workers tend to have high rates of outmigration of elderly adults and that states with high levels of unemployment have high levels of inmigration of elderly people--these relationships are generally the opposite of those found for the nonelderly." Data are from official sources and concern the period 1975-1980.

The author develops a conceptual model to explain the various forms of migration evident in Latin America since the colonial period. The predominant perspective involves institutional influences (including political, economic, legal, and social factors) on labor supply and migration. The model is an elaboration and extension of published works focusing on historical-structural and neo-Marxist interpretations. Among the recent forms of migration examined are rural-urban migration, seasonal labor migration, and the settlement of new frontiers.

The authors develop a model to analyze factors affecting sex-specific patterns in natal dispersal, or the movement of individuals from place of birth to place of reproduction. The method presented is based on a maximum-likelihood treatment of a gravity model of dispersal and is applied to field data on two tribal populations in Papua New Guinea
"The analyses suggest that males in these populations are less likely to disperse than females, but more likely to move to more-distant locations when they do disperse. The dispersal of both sexes, however, is negatively density dependent (i.e., individuals move away from areas of higher density before they reproduce), with density affecting both sexes to about the same degree. Extension of the model to include linguistic differences among locations shows that male dispersal is more constrained by language than is female dispersal."

The history of U.S. acceptance of refugees since the end of World War II is described. The authors attempt to show that although the United States has absorbed over two million refugees in this period, the bias has been heavily in favor of refugees from left-wing countries. They suggest that despite the neutral standard set by the Refugee Act, the federal authorities continue to discriminate against refugees from right-wing countries. The links between U.S. foreign policy and refugee policies are noted.

Methods of geographic analysis are applied to the examination of settlement patterns in north-central Massachusetts in the period 1700-1850, undertaken during the course of a project on the relationship between population growth and genetic structure. "Three methods were used for analysis: nearest neighbor analysis, analysis of settlement history, and rank size analysis. Nearest neighbor analysis shows the area was settled quickly, and the final distribution of populations was patterned, suggesting a strong relationship of migration and distance. Settlement history shows a pattern of early fissioning of towns, and fusioning in later periods. Rank size analysis shows there was heterogeneity of population size, but the area did not show a strong tendency for the development of central places during this time period. The potential genetic effects of settlement formation are discussed."

This report criticizes current U.S. policies concerning the granting of asylum to refugees. The focus is on the experience of Central Americans and Haitians who have sought to come to the United States in recent years. The author develops the argument that differences in the rate of approval of asylum cases indicate a bias against refugees from certain areas and countries. He urges that future policy be developed in the light of the human rights approach rather than that of immigration control.

"The study investigates the departure from Australia of former settlers who arrived during the 1980 calendar year. The 1980 settler arrival cohort [consists] of 75,167 visaed migrants....The study has three main aims: (i) to analyse departures from Australia of the 1980 settler arrival cohort with a view to gauging the success of Australia's immigration program in retaining settlers; (ii) to examine the retention rates of settlers with respect to characteristics...including age, sex, marital status, country of last residence, and settler eligibility category; and (iii) to consider implications of the findings."
Australia's present immigration policy is discussed, previous research on return migration from Australia is summarized, and a detailed analysis of the departure data is presented. "This study found that by August 1984, 12.4 per cent of non-refugee settlers who arrived in Australia during 1980 had departed permanently but that only 0.6 per cent of the 1980 refugee cohort had done so." These figures represent a decline in immigrant departure rates since the 1960s and early 1970s. Small differences in departure rates by place of birth, age, and marital status, which may have demographic consequences if sustained over time, are noted.

"Based on survey data on 1,600 respondents collected by the author in 1975-76, the book is a study of labour migrants in Delhi [India]. A primary objective is to test the empirical validity of the assumptions on which probabilistic migration models are founded. In particular, an examination is made of information transmission, expectations, inter-sector mobility, intra-sector turnover, and the structure and determinants of earnings." The author shows that the Delhi experience does not fit the migration process postulated in the probabilistic models
"The book also examines the economic selectivity and the articulated motives of migrants....Urban-rural ties are also investigated. These ties are strong and are manifested in regular visits and remittances by migrants to family members living in the rural area. The determinants of remittances and conjugal separation are analyzed using Tobit and logit analysis respectively. The evidence suggests that the underlying objective of migration is maximization of family rather than individual benefits."

"This paper seeks an appropriate specification of the migration exchange between rural and urban areas so that the implied evolution of the degree of urbanization agrees with its commonly observed S-shape. After demonstrating that the gross migration flows between rural and urban areas should be specified as nonlinear functions of the population in the origin sector, the paper introduces a model in which such flows are represented by gravity-type functional forms....[The model] can be used to give insights into the time paths of three basic urbanization variables: the urban-rural growth rate differential, the rural net outmigration rate, and the urban net immigration rate. All take on a zero value at the two extremes of the urbanization process and evolve in between according to a bell-shaped curve. These findings are illustrated by applying the model to data from the United States for the period 1790-1980."

The authors investigate counter-urbanization and population change in Georgia between 1960 and 1980 by examining commuting patterns. "The immediate objective is to construct the entire set of commuting fields of both large metropolitan areas to metropolitan and nonmetropolitan employment centers. We then proceed to the relationship between commuting from nonmetropolitan areas to all levels of Georgia's urban hierarchy and population change in these nonmetropolitan settings. By matching population growth and decline areas with explicit employment ties...the nature of the population changes is much better understood." Data from the 1960, 1970, and 1980 censuses for 581 Census County Divisions (CCDs) in Georgia are analyzed. It is concluded that "most nonmetropolitan growth taking place in Georgia is associated with intensification of metropolitan commuting fields along with growth of nonmetropolitan centers and their influence along the very periphery of metropolitan spheres of employment influence. However, a significant share of Georgia's nonmetropolitan population revitalization is explained by growth independent of direct metropolitan influence. It would appear then that nonmetropolitan growth centers are an important part of the basis for population decentralization in Georgia. Metropolitan spill-over alone cannot account for counterurbanization on this portion of the American economic landscape."

A comparative analysis of rural-urban migration in the three Indian states of Bihar, West Bengal, and Kerala is presented. Data are primarily from the 1961 and 1971 censuses. The analysis concentrates on five variables: age, sex, marital status, occupation, and education. The primary conclusion is that regional differences are so great as to preclude the development of a general theory of rural-urban migration for the country as a whole.

"This study is concerned with patterns of mobility and employment in North Sumatra Province [Indonesia]. Various forms of population mobility are investigated with a view toward assessing their causes and consequences. In this article, however, we are mainly concerned with rural-urban migration. The analysis is based upon a probability sample of 1,100 households selected from Medan, Pematang Siantar and Tebing Tinggi."
The results indicate that "migration patterns appear quite similar for all three cities. Migrants are reasonably well educated and tended to be young, unmarried and motivated by economic reason. Most migrants come from greater distances, are frequently from urban origin and exhibit diversity of ethnic backgrounds. Those who come to Medan are more certain of a job, because urban informal employment is very significant there. In general, most migrants appear to experience significant gains in their social and economic status subsequent to moving."
