"In the literature on population migration, increasing attention has been devoted to quality-of-life factors. Measures of temperature (as proxies for climate) have frequently been employed in empirical work regarding the determinants of population migration decisions. A wide range of such specifications have been used, most of which imply restrictions on the preferences of migrants. In this paper, a variety of temperature variable specifications are analyzed and interpreted. Statistical tests for nested and nonnested hypotheses are used to compare and choose among the various specifications." The model is used to analyze interstate migration in the 48 contiguous states of the United States for the period 1975-1980.

"The number of Indians undertaking internal and international migration is increasing consistently over a period of time though the proportion of migrants to the total population is relatively low in India. The paper examines the volume and streams of internal and international migration and tries to estimate the incidence of conjugal separation. The impact of migration on the family is assessed in the context of conjugal separation and also in those situations where the entire family moves out of the place of origin. Social, psychological, and economic impact on the family, resulting in consequence of migration, is analysed at length. A few areas are also suggested for further research."

This manual, which is also published in Spanish, is on indirect methods of estimating emigration. In particular, it is concerned with two methods developed by members of the IUSSP Working Group on the Methodology for the Study of International Migration, one based on the residence of children, the other based on the residence of siblings. The manual is based on data from the 1981 Barbados Experimental Migration Survey, in which these two methods were tested, and on the work of a seminar held in May 1982 to discuss the results of the survey. The author draws on materials from papers presented at the seminar on theory and methodology; describes the fieldwork, data processing, and analysis; and illustrates specific points with data from the Barbados survey.

Texas Population Research Center Papers, Series 9: 1987, No. 9.014, 1987. 24, [13] pp. University of Texas, Texas Population Research Center: Austin, Texas. In Eng.
"This paper examines the effects of undocumented and legal male and female Mexican immigrants on the earnings of other workers in geographical (or local) labor markets in the [U.S.] Southwest. Estimates are first presented of the number of undocumented Mexicans included in selected markets in 1980....We then estimate the parameters of two alternative specifications of a Generalized Leontief production function in which various demographic groups (including undocumented Mexicans) are treated as substitutable factors. The results reveal that the statistically significant effects of undocumented Mexican immigrants on the earnings of other labor force groups tend to be positive, although these are of slight magnitude."

"This paper extends the standard (two-factor, one-good) model of international factor movements, to include unemployment due to a minimum-income guarantee within the capital-abundant country. From this country's perspective, we establish important departures from previous (full-employment) results. Most notably, our analysis shows that: (1) free factor mobility is worse than no mobility; (2) the optimal degree of labour migration is zero; and (3) national welfare can always be maximized by an optimal flow of capital. The analysis is then extended to examine: (1) illegal migration; (2) subsidization of employment; and (3) alternative views of unemployment."

"Historically Australia has had, and continues to have, important links with the South Pacific. As emigration has become a growing necessity for South Pacific Islands, Australia has become involved as a receiving country of both legal and illegal immigrants from the region. A recent study of the social consequences of emigration in Fiji, Tonga and Western Samoa raises several important issues for Australia, and another study of South Pacific Islanders in Melbourne raises equally important questions. This paper summarises briefly the nature of those issues and suggests that this is an area of welfare requiring considerable attention."

In Eng.
"This paper assumes that migrants derive utility from their own consumption, their own leisure and remittances to their family. It hypothesizes that the labor supply and remittances of Mexican migrants in the U.S. are jointly determined. Shifts in real exchange rates affect the cost of sending a given real volume of remittances back to the family in the sending country. This in turn induces income and substitution effects on both remittances and labor supply. It is argued that the substitution effect would dominate. Therefore, under reasonable conditions, a real depreciation of the peso should lead to an increase in both remittances and labor supply. Empirical work using U.S. Census data and a data set containing information on Mexican migrants in the U.S. lends support to the theoretical predictions."

"In this paper we analyze the pattern of international labor migration in a two-country world where one country's production technology is superior to that of the other country. We exploit an overlapping generations model which enables us to trace the relevant dynamic considerations. We find that in the absence of international capital movements labor will migrate from the technologically-inferior to the technologically-superior country except for one specific case which we explicate fully....We also examine the welfare implications of migration when capital mobility is not allowed. We find that migration has no effect on the welfare of the non-migrant."

"Canada and Australia share many similar post-war demographic characteristics. Both countries have experienced declining rates of natural population growth and adopted increasingly restrictive attitudes towards immigration during the 1970s in the face of rising unemployment. However, both countries have accepted relatively large numbers of political refugees, particularly from south-east Asia, and both have signalled that they intend to raise their migrant intake quotas despite continuing high levels of unemployment."

"In this paper we focus on the migration-related processes that may lead to the well-documented differences in earnings and in naturalization rates across country-of-origin groups in the United States. Our theoretical framework examines how the forces of selectivity associated with the decisions by residents of non-U.S. countries to migrate to the United States and with the decisions by foreign-born U.S. residents to remain in the United States are influenced by country conditions and are reflected ultimately in the observed earnings differences among the 'survivors' of these processes who are enumerated in U.S. sample surveys. In particular, we assess how economic conditions, origin-country attractiveness, costs of migration, the quantity and quality of information, and the country-specific restrictions of U.S. immigration law influence both who migrates to and, among the migrants, who remains in the United States. The framework is applied to two U.S. data sets--a sample of the foreign born in the 1980 Census and a sample from the 1971 cohort of legal immigrants."

"This paper sets out to model the interaction between international labour migration and asymmetric information when workers possess, at least for a while, more information than some of their employers....In Section II we present our basic model and derive the likely migratory patterns under public or symmetric (full) information. In Section III we consider the effects of asymmetric information on migratory patterns within the context of our basic model. In Section IV we examine the impact of allowing employers, after a while, to identify individual workers' true productivities. In Section V we set out our main conclusions and outline some directions along which future research in this area may prove fruitful."

This is a collection of papers by various authors concerning international migration affecting Argentina between 1955 and 1984. In the first three papers, two estimates of Argentine emigration during this period are provided; one is based on entrance and exit registers, the other on censuses and civil registers. The following chapter is concerned with the estimation of the volume and characteristics of this migration, based on data from foreign censuses. Two studies of Argentines in Mexico and Venezuela are included, containing analyses of migrant characteristics as well as estimates of the size of these migrant groups. In the final chapter, the author presents an "analysis of the way in which the media, notably the press, have dealt with the increasing emigration of Argentines, as well as with the emergence of a large community of expatriates based especially in certain Latin American countries, in North America, and in Europe, and with the return of Argentines to their home country." This publication is also available in Spanish.

"In this paper, we consider the brain drain problem arising from the possibility of signaling and individual's two-stage decision procedures within an asymmetric information framework. Where the ranking of the universities provides a signal to domestic employers, our results indicate that, at rational expectations equilibrium, there is an association between students of a particular quality and corresponding qualities of universities they will choose to attend to attain Ph.D.'s. Moreover, we can predict whether these graduating Ph.D.'s choose to return home or remain abroad."

The growing concern with illegal, or undocumented, migration in developing countries is described. The author notes that although such migration occurred in the past without causing concern, changing economic, political, and social factors since the 1970s have caused governments to attempt to control such flows. A review of regional trends is included, and the consequences of illegal migration for both countries of origin and destination are examined.

"In this study, I use multivariate analysis of data for a sample of 18 countries to examine the relationship between growth in U.S. direct investment in Caribbean countries and immigration from the area during the 1970s. The results indicate countries which received more U.S. direct investment had higher rates of immigration after other important factors were controlled. I conclude by discussing the implications of this finding for economic policy in the Caribbean Basin."

Recent trends in international migration are reviewed. Three major trends are identified: changes in the relationships between states due to the presence of a more or less permanent minority population from one state in the other; the flow of illegal migrants despite stricter immigration laws; and the growing problem of refugees and their impact on the migration policies of developed countries. The author reviews some theories concerning international migration and the role of institutions in the international division of labor.

The impact of immigration on unemployment in Canada is examined for the period 1983-1985. The authors attempt to construct a balance sheet of immigration in terms of labor supply and demand. They conclude that immigrants create more jobs than they fill, and that their net effect on the employment situation is positive.

The extent of labor migration in the ASEAN region and its economic consequences are explored. The region includes Brunei, Indonesia, Malaysia, the Philippines, Singapore, and Thailand. The countries that primarily export labor are first examined, consisting of the Philippines, Thailand, and Indonesia. Next, the situation in Malaysia, which both exports and imports labor is reviewed. The final case study concerns Singapore, a labor-importing country. The hypothesized benefits to countries that export labor are critically reviewed, with a general concern with assisting those countries to maximize such benefits.

In Rus.
Recent trends in internal migration in the Socialist countries of Eastern Europe are reviewed. The authors note a general decline in such migration over the past decade, as well as a decline in rural-urban migration and interurban migration. The process of urbanization continues, although the fastest rates of growth are observed in middle-sized towns. Some of the largest metropolitan areas have ceased to grow or have started to decrease in size.

"This study examines individual out-migration in Venezuela as a function of personal attributes and place characteristics indexing development, using logistic regression. The likelihood of out-migration varies inversely with age and directly with educational attainment and is higher for females and persons in places with more traditional socioeconomic structures and greater levels of population pressure; but place characteristics also effect the role of personal attributes. As a step toward elaborating a development-migration paradigm, of continuing concern is the proper representation of development and whether, in any case, development is only an artifact of public policy."

"Most studies on internal migration in Sierra Leone are based on birthplace data, especially from the 1963 census. Considering the limitations of this type of data, analyses in this study are done from the place-of-previous residence data. This study concludes that migration to the Western Area is high and that several factors contribute to the patterns of migration. But the consequences in the city, especially rapid population growth, are the results of both recent and historical migrations. The difficulties in curbing the latent effect of historical migration makes it expedient that development policies which synchronize centralization and de-centralization of investments in Sierra Leone be implemented." The data used in this study are primarily from a 1975 sample survey of 22,231 people.

More importantly, assistance from relatives has a negative effect on occupational achievement for rural migrants only."

"This paper examines the relationships between migration and the life cyle of households in contexts where the economic activities of peasant families are increasingly diversified and where off-farm labor has come to form a vital part of subsistence strategies. Research from the department of Puno, southern Peru is used to explore the issues this raises including: (a) differences between externally induced economic differentiation and the life cycle dynamics of peasant households; (b) the differing migratory patterns of rich and poor households; and (c) the effects of migration on household labor supply and productive organization. The paper concludes by suggesting that for poor families, who exercise less control over the timing of the migratory process, migration may cause disruptive effects in [production], a reorientation of the household division of labor, and changes in reproductive decision-making."

"The recessionary period of the early 1980s coincided with a decrease in the growth rate of nonmetropolitan areas [in the United States] such that these areas are once again growing more slowly than metropolitan areas. The purpose of this research is to more clearly specify the key factors affecting net migration during this time. I compare the influence of variables used in past research (employment growth and diversity, commuting, retirement migration, income, unemployment, age structure, and adjacency) with the influence of two previously neglected variables (nonfarm self-employment and percentage of the labor force that is female) reflecting recent changes in the employment structure of the United States. Results suggest that for the early part of this decade, these new variables are more important determinants of nonmetropolitan migration than are past variables."

"Recent net interregional migration into southern and western France is widely appreciated, but much less is known about the composition of these flows in terms of the occupational characteristics of economically active migrants.

Important differences between these groups with regard to absolute flows and geographical mobility are uncovered and discussed in relation to the new spatial division of labor perspective on counterurbanization."

A multiple-choice migration model with selectivity is presented and applied to data from the 1971 census of Venezuela. The model includes two innovations, involving a correction for the presence of selectivity in wage equations in the context of a multiple-choice migration model and a less restrictive technique for modeling multiple discrete choices. The results indicate that there is evidence of selectivity in some state-wage equations and that wages influence migration in Venezuela.

This study is concerned with the process by which migrants select the choice of migration destination. In particular, "it is hypothesised that due to a lack of information on many destinations, migrants make destination choices hierarchically or sequentially. This hypothesis is contrary to the standard assumption in destination choice modelling that individuals make a choice only after simultaneously evaluating all possible destinations. Following a general discussion of hierarchical destination choice, four models are examined in terms of their utility in analysing this process. Two of these models are compared both theoretically and empirically and from the theoretical comparison a method is identified by which the presence of hierarchical destination choice can be detected. This method involves an examination of the spatial pattern of origin-specific, distance-decay parameter estimates obtained in the calibration of a multinomial logit choice model." 1982 internal migration data from the Netherlands are used to demonstrate the presence of hierarchical destination choice.

"Between 1976 and 1981 many people moved out of Quebec, especially anglophones. To the extent that a person's decision to stay or to move may be related to earnings prospects, earnings comparisons with individuals who lived in Quebec in 1981 may suffer from a selection bias. This paper analyses emigration from Quebec and earnings with a two-equation model, using a sample of men drawn from the from the 1981 [Canadian] census. It is found that a selection bias is indeed present for anglophones and that the returns to learning French may be underestimated when that bias is ignored."

"Internal migration is both caused by and has consequences for...inequalities in the spatial distribution of social and economic opportunities....At the outset the whole issue of policy intervention in migration systems to achieve developmental goals in Third World countries is discussed. This is followed by a brief consideration of the major ways in which internal migration is inter-related with regional development. Then an attempt is made to draw out some of the possible policy lessons from what little we know and understand about these internal migration-regional development linkages with reference to the case of Indonesia."

Florida and California were found to have an important role in redistributing population. The typology was also valid for all age groups and across racial and ethnic categories. The typology remained meaningful when the 1975-80 data were compared to 1965-70 and 1980-85 data, despite great volatility in net migration and significant change in the placement of many states."

The author notes that a change occurred during the 1970s away from south-north migration and migration to the largest cities toward migration to the northeast and center of the country and toward medium-sized cities. Furthermore, overall mobility declined, and short-range migration as a percentage of overall migration increased. The implications of these trends for spatial policy and the implications of a growth of immigration are considered.

Migration and Development Program Discussion Paper, No. 32, Sep 1987. 30 pp. Harvard University, Center for Population Studies, Migration and Development Program: Cambridge, Massachusetts. In Eng.
Migration in rural India for the purpose of marrying is studied. The authors "hypothesize that the marrying out of daughters to locationally distant, dispersed yet kinship-related households, are manifestations of implicit inter-household contractual arrangements aimed at mitigating income risks and facilitating consumption smoothing in an environment characterized by information costs and spatially covariant risks. Analysis of longitudinal South Indian village data lends support to the hypothesis. Marriage cum migration contributes significantly to a reduction in the variability of household food consumption. Farm households afflicted with more variable profits tend to engage in longer distance marriage cum migration." The analysis is based on data collected between 1975 and 1985.

The authors examine the implications of using different types of panel data to study individual mobility through empirical analyses of data on intercounty migration of white male household heads for 1975-1980 from the U.S. Panel Study of Income Dynamics. The consequences of different panel designs involving varying numbers and spacings of waves and of different timings of the measurements of explanatory variables are considered. "The results indicate that: (1) measuring the covariates at the end of an interval can be misleading, especially if these covariates are likely to change during the interval as a consequence of mobility; (2) a study of the mobility of a group of individuals during a single short interval can lead to different conclusions from a study of mobility of the same group of individuals during a single long interval; and (3) multiwave panel data have clear advantages over data from a single short interval or a single long interval."

Monograph Series on the Middle East, No. 4, 1986. 64, viii pp. University of Haifa, Gustav Heinemann Institute of Middle Eastern Studies, Jewish-Arab Center: Haifa, Israel. In Heb. with sum. in Eng.
This publication presents three separate studies on the social and settlement geography of Arabs in Israel. The first study is concerned with residential patterns of Arabs in the Little Triangle region between 1949 and 1980. The second study examines Arab migration to Haifa and their spatial distribution in the city. The third deals with Arab migration to Jewish urban areas, using the example of Upper Nazareth.

In Pol. with sum. in Eng; Rus.
Migration of those over age 60 in Poland during the late 1970s is studied. The data are from a survey of 2,752 persons residing in seven voivodships. Comparisons are made between the elderly who did migrate and those who did not. In general, elderly migrants are older, female, single, of low educational status, and poor. Two types of migration are identified: that of the relatively affluent, who choose to migrate to improve the quality of their lives, and that of the relatively poor, who are driven to migrate, generally back to their rural areas of origin, by necessity. The need for appropriate social policy to assist migrants in this latter category is noted.

The impact of changing economic conditions on internal migration trends in Poland is reviewed from 1939 to the present. The author notes that the postwar period involved a trend toward migration from rural to urban areas. The 1950s and 1960s involved high levels of migration, although rural-urban migration did not reach its peak until the 1970s, in conjunction with economic growth. The economic difficulties of the 1980s have led to a decline in migration flows.

These are the proceedings of a seminar on migration in Poland, held at Waszeta from May 31 to June 2, 1985. The 27 papers are organized under four main topics: the demographic, social, economic, and regional aspects of migration. The primary focus is on internal migration, but two papers are concerned with migration from Poland to the Federal Republic of Germany. A summary of the discussion that took place at the seminar is included.

This is a study of the relationship between education and internal migration in the Federal Republic of Germany, specifically the influence of educational level on the likelihood and type of move. Theoretical considerations concern regional variations in education and type of employment, feelings about location and social factors, and values and awareness of options. The theory is applied to people in the birth cohorts of 1929-1931, 1939-1941, and 1949-1951. Size of town of origin, type of schooling and year completed, distance moved, and population density of towns of origin and destination are among the factors examined. It is found that level of education is a significant determinant of spatial mobility. Results of the interplay of specific factors are discussed.

"This article focuses on components of change in out-migration and destination-propensity rates of metropolitan and nonmetropolitan areas [in the United States]. The results indicate that changes in subgroup-specific rates were the driving force behind the changing patterns between and within these two areas. Composition effects played a secondary role, mainly counteracting the negative impact of changing rates. Although the rate of change in out-migration from metropolitan areas has been reduced and out-migration from nonmetropolitan areas declined during the most recent period, the propensity to select metropolitan areas increased over the period studied. Finally, rate-specific changes vary by age and education, indicating a change in migration's impact on population composition at origin and destination."

"The present paper studies the role of economic variables and culture in determining a migrant's decision to (a) return to his place of origin, and (b) remit money. It is based on a sample of nearly two thousand migrant households from Punjab, Uttar Pradesh and Tamil Nadu, now living in a resettlement colony in Delhi. The data are used to examine many questions: Does ethnicity matter? How does the length of stay in Delhi affect a migrant household's propensity to return to its origin and its propensity to remit money? How does caste affect behaviour? Is there a connection between remittance and a household's income? The extent to which these variables are compatible with the economist's scheme of analysing migration and remittance is then explored."

H.6. Rural-Urban Migration

Migration from rural to urban areas (the rural exodus), both internal and international. Reverse or turnaround migration is also included.

"This paper analyzes a multi-sectoral simulation model of the Indian economy designed to isolate the sources of Indian economic growth and urbanization since 1960. The model shares many common traits with other computable general equilibrium (CGE) simulation models, and its underlying framework is neoclassical. The model stresses spatial issues so that it can provide predictions on rural/urban labor demands, and hence on migration flows. The central issue we seek to evaluate is whether a neoclassical development paradigm can explain adequately the somewhat paradoxical patterns of urbanization and economic growth observed in India since 1960. Our conclusion is a qualified, affirmative response, based on the model's ability to replicate key macroeconomic variables."

The town of Shenzhen, China, experienced rapid economic and demographic growth following the government's creation of four Special Economic Zones in 1980. The role of migration in the Shenzhen phenomenon is examined as a practicum for policymakers and demographic specialists. Specifically, the paper is concerned with "the sources and mechanisms of migration, and characteristics of migrants to Shenzhen in order to clarify the relationship between rapid economic growth and its demographic consequences in China. It also briefly assesses the problems associated with migration to Shenzhen and how they may affect the city's future."

The author criticizes the conception that the majority of rural-urban migrants in developing countries are likely to settle in low-income neighborhoods immediately on their arrival in the city. Data from the Philippines are used to show that "migrants are neither heavily segregated in certain districts of the city nor particularly likely to settle in a slum community, with these findings persisting even when the sample was restricted to lower-status, rural-urban migrants. These patterns are chiefly attributable to heavy rates of inmigration among young married persons (especially females), many of whom reside in nonslum neighborhoods as servants, lodgers, or extended relatives."

Following decades of large-scale, rural-urban migration in developing countries, the authors note the recent growth in reverse migration, or migration from urban centers to suburban or rural areas, which suggests that the labor market adjustment process may be unstable. "It is our purpose here to investigate the question of stability using some recent developments in nonlinear dynamic analysis and to do so within a framework which closely resembles the original Harris-Todaro model. We find that instability is indeed a possibility, and that regular or irregular, nonperiodic fluctuations can be propagated--even in the absence of any exogenous shocks. The source of these results is the lag in adjustment on labour markets combined with the nonlinearity of the labour supply function."

"This article is devoted to the specification of notions relating to migration from agriculture and contains an attempt at systematization of causative factors of this process." The authors present definitions for terms used in the analysis of such migration. Four groups of causative factors are identified: "factors forming external demand for a labour force from agriculture, factors forming balance of labour force in agriculture, income-social disparities between agricultural and non-agricultural sectors and psychosocial factors. Directions and character of influence of separate factors on migratory processes [are] discussed, with regard to the forms of organization of [the] agricultural economy."

"This dissertation focuses on the occupational, housing, and social assimilation of male and female internal migrants to large Third World cities. The survey data used here were collected in Bangkok, Bogota, and Cairo by the Carolina Population Center and collaborating institutions in 1977 (and 1980). In each city, a detailed questionnaire and life-history module was administered to approximately 1,000 respondents, aged 18-55....To study assimilation, or the increasing similarity of migrants to nonmigrants over time in the city, the nonmigrants are used as a standard of comparison and a synthetic cohort approach is used to introduce the time variable....The consistent findings are that in each country and for males and females, farm-origin migrants attain lower levels of occupational status and housing facilities relative to nonmigrants, while nonfarm-origin migrants attain higher levels than the nonmigrants....The key variable in almost all analyses is educational attainment (in years)."

"This paper presents evidence to the effect that a large majority of urban migrants exhibit rural orientation and expect to return to their home areas on completion of their sojourns. It is based on a survey of 568 rural-urban migrants in Kisumu town, Kenya carried out in 1972-73. Evidence presented includes the fact that migrants consider their origins to be their homes; the presence of 'location-specific capital' in home areas induces migrants to return there eventually; periodic visits home help in sustaining kinship networks and reflect possible return migration; and it is difficult to identify the most preferred destination from the present one, although out-migrating from the former is inevitable. The expected future moves including return migration have far-reaching implications for rural development efforts in Kenya. The paper concludes that evidence presented is by no means limited to Kisumu; rather it is a fact most consistent with Kenya's present stage of demographic transition including mobility transition."

This study is concerned with counter-urbanization, which is defined as the tendency for households to move from urban to rural areas in developed countries. The work is in four parts. "In the first we explore some of the theoretical and methodological issues surrounding the concept of 'counter-urbanisation', as urban to rural movement is often called. The second part summarises the results of a major survey carried out by the authors into the economic, social and cultural effects of pre-retirement age migration into West Cornwall, an example of the turnaround from long-drawn-out population decline to sudden expansion. Section three examines some other regions in Britain, [Ireland], France and America that have undergone apparently similar experiences. In our final section we try to organise and interpret our findings as a guide for future action."

"In this paper we utilize urban economics to identify socially optimal levels of urbanization and, by implication, optimal levels of rural-to-urban migration. Our analysis addresses, first, the case where there is only one urban center (region) in the economy and, second, where there are two. Since in this latter case inter-urban migration flows are possible as well, we examine the rationale underlying dispersal from the larger urban center to the smaller one. After identifying the reason that private actions do not add up to the social optimum, we offer an analysis of instruments that could confer efficiency gains by closing the gap(s) between the privately efficient and socially optimal urban concentrations."

"This paper is intended to examine two propositions with regard to the educational characteristics of migrants to cities [in India]: Firstly, migration to urban areas is highly selective of educated persons. Secondly, most educated female migrants are more likely to be dependents of male migrants than workers at the place of destination. It is suggested that these two propositions hold differently in different cultural regions of India." Data are from the 1971 census.

"The historical background of migration to Hong Kong from China is reviewed. The focus is, however, on the 'wave' of migration that occurred in the late 1970s. Two distinct streams of migration are identified, legal and illegal, each with different characteristics." Data are primarily from official Hong Kong sources. The author notes the high levels of education among immigrants and the relative ease with which they have been absorbed into the labor force. "Political conditions in China are seen to be a major factor in explaining fluctuations in the volume of migration to Hong Kong. No relaxation of controls on future movement is seen as Hong Kong becomes part of China."

Causes of the recent increase in female rural-urban migration in Kenya are investigated. "Reasons for this additional migration-wave are to be found in a general weakening of traditional values and authorities, the increasing land shortage and the resulting population pressure in the rural areas, which are factors that do in fact force women to migrate to towns." Comparisons are made with male migration flows. Regional differences in migration patterns are also noted. The author concludes that the increase in female migration is not a result of greater emancipation of women but rather a symptom of increasing poverty among Kenya's female population.

A nonlinear model of population migration is presented in order to provide a dynamic explanation for the formation of metropolitan areas. "In Section 2 the model is introduced in terms of the rate equations for the mean values of the regional population numbers with specifically chosen individual transition rates. Section 3 gives a survey of concepts and results for the convenience of the reader not interested in the details of the mathematical derivations. Section 4 derives the stationary solutions of the rate equations, that is, the equilibria of the system. Section 5 treats the time dependent solutions of the model equations focussing on the exact analytic solutions along so-called symmetry paths. Section 6 analyzes the dynamic stability of the symmetry path solutions and decides which stationary states are unstable and which are stable equilibrium states."
