"This study evaluates the determinants of Palestinian migration from the West Bank and Gaza. Data are employed for the post-1967 period of Israeli rule to specify and test competing models as well as the strucure of expectations in the migration decision. Results of the analysis support a simple static expectation formulation, as is consistent with much of the short-term, low mobility cost migration between the West Bank and Jordan. Findings further point to the importance of various Israeli-Palestinian economic and political economic interactions in the determination of this controversial movement of population, including those associated with employment opportunity for Palestinian labour in Israel, elements of Israeli West Bank settlement policy and changes in local standard of living. Various policy implications of the research are indicated."

[Le developpement capitaliste des regions et la mobilite de la force de travail au Quebec, de 1966 a 1976.] Sociologie et Societes, Vol. 19, No. 1, Apr 1987. 117-31 pp. Montreal, Canada. In Fre. with sum. in Eng; Spa.
"In this paper the author presents a study of the spatial mobility of the Quebec population between 1966 and 1976, in the light of regional capitalist development. Based on an empirical operationalization of the concepts of mobility and development, the author demonstrates that Quebec presents a very irregular distribution of its poles of development over its territory, and that the mobility of the work force is in the image of this distribution. A few regions within the Montreal metropolitan area have attained a relatively evolved state of capitalist development and consequently are able to attract within their limits a large majority of migrants moving inside of or toward Quebec. In contrast, it can be observed that the majority of the regions in Quebec may be qualified as 'underdeveloped', and that their net mobility figures are negative."

"This article elucidates some of the problems using census data to identify movers among the elderly population [in developed countries], in analyzing the characteristics of movers and the causes of migration. Some suggestions and recommendations are made regarding how to deal with these problems in existing data sets and how they can be obviated in the future by making relatively small changes in census practices and conventions." Data are from official and other published sources for selected developed countries.

This study is concerned with theoretical aspects of the movement of individuals among various parts of a given territory. The author distinguishes between two types of migration, the one-time move between two distinct areas and the multiple move involving a sequence of trips linking different areas. The author presents a methodological reconstruction of contemporary approaches to spatial interaction models and attempts to construct an alternative approach to models of this type.

"A model comprising county characteristics measuring amenities, urbanization, service characteristics, and sociodemographic characteristics explains substantial proportions of the variation in net migration rates for the young and old elderly for three different decades in New England. Over time (1940-1980), both the net migration rate patterns of the two age groups and the county characteristics that make significant contributions to explanation of the two groups' rates become more similar. The model is least successful for the 1950-1960 decade, suggesting support for the turnaround thesis. However, at the regional scale of analysis, both amenity and urbanization characteristics associated with high rates of net migration do not substantiate a turnaround in migration behavior."

"A family model of migration is developed and empirically tested, using longitudinal data for respondents living in the Ilocos Norte Province of the Philippines. Based on the framework of a family migration system, model dimensions include linkage to the migration system, family household structure, socio-economic resources, family pressure to migrate, family/kin ties to place of origin, and prior mobility experience of family members....It is concluded that the framework used and the model developed, with its distinction between types of family migrating behavior, helps explain how migration becomes an institutionalized reality of family life in many developing countries. The family model is applied to subsets of family households to examine relevant measurement, data collection and decision-making issues in migration research. The findings show that family informant measures are most adequate when the model is applied to general types of family migration. If the family relational structure of the potential migrant is specified, such as the husband or wife migrating, then family relational specific measures are recommended."

"In this paper an attempt is made to treat the causative process generating migratory flows into West Bengal [India]. Some popular hypotheses have been tested and their inadequacies in [the] case of migration into West Bengal, have been shown. Then, a variable incorporating the expected longrun socio-economic condition of West Bengal vis-a-vis the states/countries belonging to the migration universe of West Bengal [is] constructed and this expectational variable appears to have more explanatory power than the observed income differential. Barring the political factor which played the central role in case of immigration from Bangladesh, the determinants can be ranked in order of importance as linguistic distance, expected socio-economic condition and physical distance."

The author examines "the main issues to be resolved when designing questions and strategies to collect migration-related data....The strengths and weaknesses of the various approaches are assessed in the light of the data collected by countries in the Asia-Pacific region during the 1980 round of censuses. In the context of the developing countries of the region it is argued here that higher quality and more useful migration data can be captured through questions on last place of previous residence and duration of residence in de facto-based censuses." The necessity of resolving these issues before the 1990 round of censuses is stressed.

The author "argues that the rise of organized labour migration has introduced a new structural feature in the international labour market....This new factor....contributes to making labour supply highly elastic during upswings in demand for expatriate labour....[and] makes for inelasticity during periods of weakening demand because of its 'stockpiling effect' on labour supply." The impacts on migrants' wages and on the labor forces of labor-exporting countries are considered. The focus is on Asian labor migration to the Middle East. Separate comments by M. Irfan and Nadeem A. Burney are included (pp. 378-81).

The question of whether or not illegal aliens should be included in the 1990 U.S. census counts is explored. The demographic, economic, and social considerations concerned are first explored in the context of the 1980 census. The relevant legal history for the past 100 years is then reviewed. The authors conclude that "for both practical and legal reasons...efforts should not be undertaken to exclude illegal aliens from 1990 census counts."

"We present a model for deriving optimal sequential migration decisions under incomplete information. As a main characteristic of the model, the decision maker can rationally learn about pecuniary and non-pecuniary net return on migration in different countries by migrating into these countries. Furthermore it is shown that the optimal migration policy can be characterized by a 'simple' procedure, called 'Gittins-index policy'. In the context of our sequential migration model we find more satisfying explanations for some relevant empirical observations (e.g. remigration) than...would be possible within the traditional deterministic approach."

"The effects of immigrant status, French ethnicity, and language fluency in Canada has received relatively little attention in the economics literature. Moreover, the coverage of the few studies available is highly selective, and the results often conflict. This paper seeks to correct these deficiencies by using data from the 1971 and 1981 Censuses of Canada to analyze the labor market adjustment of immigrants and French Canadians, as well as the role of language in the Canadian labor market. The analysis is conducted in a manner which will facilitate comparison with previous studies of immigrants and their children in Canada and in other countries. In addition, by comparing 1971 and 1981 Census data, the paper highlights the similarity and changes in patterns over the decade."

Data from the 1980 U.S. census are used to present a comparative analysis of the success of immigrants from Europe and Israel. The results indicate that although Israeli immigrants are more highly educated, have better jobs, and earn higher incomes than immigrants from Europe, these socioeconomic advantages have declined significantly for the most recent cohorts. Furthermore, "Israelis are more likely than their European counterparts to be at either end of the income distribution. Thus, while many Israelis are enjoying high incomes, even more suffer from poverty."

"This article discusses the data on international migration to the United Kingdom, their limitations and their origins....[The author] describes the form of these statistics and evaluates their adequacy, in the context of the pattern of 20th century immigration and successive attempts to control it." Separate consideration is given to the history and legislation of migration control, including the effects of Jewish and Irish immigration of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries on migration policy; immigration control of Commonwealth citizens; attitudes toward immigration control; and the occurrence of return migration. The primary data sources discussed are the International Passenger Survey (IPS) and Home Office Statistics. The author concludes that neither source provides adequate data on migration patterns or migrant characteristics.

The author examines the history of immigration to the United States, with a focus on integration policies designed to equalize the status of disadvantaged racial and ethnic minorities. The author also considers differences in the integration process from one generation to another. The trends, presented chronologically, include the Americanization of minorities during World War II, integration after the war, the ethnic revival of the 1970s, and civil rights and affirmative action since the 1970s. A comparison is made between American and West German integration processes.

International migration statistics for Mexico and sources of these data are evaluated. It is noted that "during the past decade Mexico has experienced both large-scale emigration, directed mostly to the United States, and the mass immigration of Central American refugees. The implementation of the United States Immigration and Control Act of 1986 and the possible escalation of armed conflicts in Central America may result in expanded inflows either of returning citizens or of new refugee waves. To develop appropriate policy responses, Mexico would need reliable information on international migration flows." Tabular data are included comparing U.S. and Mexican data on international migration between the two countries, and for arrival and departures of aliens, nationals, and foreigners for selected years.

"This article compares two different methods for estimating the number of undocumented Mexican adults in Los Angeles County....The first method, called the survey-based method, uses a combination of 1980 [U.S.] census data and the results of a survey conducted in Los Angeles County in 1980 and 1981....The second method, called the residual method....involves comparison of census figures for aliens counted with estimates of legally-resident aliens developed principally with data from the Immigration and Naturalization Service (INS). For this study, estimates by age, sex, and period of entry were produced for persons born in Mexico and living in Los Angeles County."

In this article, "two methods for estimating migration flows from census data are proposed and illustrated by applications to recent U.S. data. The first method is a simplification of existing intercensal projection methods, and will be affected by changes in census coverage. The second method incorporates independent information on the age pattern of intercensal migration and estimates consistent adjustment factors for census coverage and the scale of the migration schedule." Data are from the U.S. censuses of 1970 and 1980 and are for foreign-born males, with the second method using additional data from the Immigration and Naturalization Service on age distribution of permanent immigrants.

"In this paper we investigate how (1) the existence of foreign-born groups who are heterogeneous in legal status, (2) the differential effects of the two types of U.S. experience--experience before and after the achievement of permanent resident status--on occupational attainment, and (3) the selectivity associated with remigration by the foreign born influence the estimates of the occupational mobility of 'immigrants' based on information in Census-type surveys. We analyze and compare data from two microdata files--a unique longitudinal data set based on a probability sample of the fiscal year 1971 cohort of new permanent resident aliens, and a probability sample of the foreign born who were enumerated in the 1980 Census and who report entering the United States between 1960 and 1980. We find that estimates obtained from the Census significantly understate the returns to the U.S. experience of immigrants with respect to occupational attainment, and in particular understate the occupational mobility of Hispanics and Asians relative to the rest of the foreign-born population."

"This paper offers a new explanation for the often observed higher mean income-higher income variance of migrants vis-a-vis the native-born. The explanation is based on the relative lack of information about migrants in the receiving country rather than on the attributes of migrants." The authors propose a model to support their argument that "when migrants arrive in a new country (the U.S. in our case) they will tend to be initially viewed by potential employers as homogenous in terms of their ability." Data are from official and other published sources.

In particular, they question the estimate that some 500,000 Dominicans live in the United States and abroad. The authors present "enumeration data from both U.S. and Dominican censuses that seem to converge on a much smaller number....Even if these smaller numbers are taken to be the current immigrants from a large, empirically-estimated pool of migrants, the total number of Dominicans abroad appears to be lower than 500,000."

International migration from Chenghai county in the People's Republic of China is analyzed using official data concerning 1,305 migrants during the period 1981-1985. The historical significance of the region's seaports as exit points for migrants is noted. Data from selected years are then compared for migrant characteristics including sex and age distribution, educational attainment, marital status, and motivations for migrating. It is concluded that current migration is a continuation of past migration trends from the area.

The authors use "a new methodology...to estimate net international emigration by age and sex from Sri Lanka between 1971 and 1981. The procedure starts with a set of preliminary estimates of census populations in 1971 and 1981 and intercensal births, deaths, and migrants. These preliminary estimates are corrected in such a way as to be consistent with a set of intercensal demographic balancing equations. The methodology, which is formulated in terms of finite-dimensional vector spaces and which involves an optimizing criterion, includes a weighting procedure by which the brunt of the corrections can be made to fall on the least reliable quantities, in this case migrants. The procedure also yields corrected estimates of population, births, deaths, and derived life tables."

This is a brief review of Nigeria's data sources and laws regulating migration. Demographic data sources discussed are censuses, arrival and departure statistics, work and resident permits, and sample surveys. The author finds that "demographic data sources in Nigeria are generally weak and those producing information on population movements across international boundaries are no exception. However...a complex system of data collection on arrivals and departures already exists and yields data on a regular basis. Despite its current limitations, such a system has the potential of yielding useful information, although political will is needed to effect the necessary changes."

This interdisciplinary study examines the dynamic social process that has led to massive international migration from Mexico to the United States. The authors combine historical, anthropological, and survey data to construct a picture of the social dynamics of this migration, focusing on four communities in western Mexico. The study design and the communities are first described. "Chapter 4 examines the historical origins of U.S. migration within each of the four communities....Chapter 6 shows how migrants' social networks develop and grow over time and how they gradually support migration on a continuously widening scale. Chapter 7 analyzes the role that U.S. migration plays in the household economy, studying how it is manipulated as part of a larger strategy of survival. Chapter 8 considers the impact of U.S. migration on the socioeconomic organization of Mexican communities. Chapter 9 shifts attention north of the border to analyze the process of U.S. settlement in some detail. Finally, chapter 10 summarizes the insights of the prior chapters by estimating four statistical models that measure how different factors determine key events in the migrant career."

These design features are described, justified, and tied to the broader methodological literature in social science. The ethnosurvey design is illustrated by its recent application to study Mexican migration to the United States, and empirical evidence is presented to show how it corrects the limitations of federal data on immigration."

"This report examines the process of integration and settlement among Mexican migrants to the United States using data specially collected from four Mexican sending communities. These data indicate that as migrants accumulate experience in the United States, social and economic ties are formed which progressively increase the likelihood of U.S. settlement. Over time, migrants bring family members abroad, make new friends, establish institutional connections, and obtain more stable, better paying jobs. As a result, less money is remitted home to Mexico, and more is spent in the United States. These trends give rise to a steady, cumulative increase in the probability of U.S. settlement."

The focus is on the attitudes of Irish emigrants toward their migration, the factors determining those attitudes, and how those attitudes shaped their experiences of emigration and life in North America. Consideration is given to differences between migrants who arrived in North America before the Great Famine and those who emigrated as a result of it.

This is an overview of demographic characteristics of migrants from the Caribbean to Great Britain and Canada, based on official data. "In 1981 there were approximately 295,000 Caribbean born persons living in Britain and 211,000 in Canada. In addition there was a 'second generation' of about 250,000 in Britain and 50,000 in Canada. Immigration from the Caribbean reached its peak in Britain in 1961 and in 1974 for Canada. The latter country was more selective in terms of education and includes a francophone group from Haiti. There is substantial residential segregation in the inner cities of London and Birmingham, but a greater degree of dispersion within Montreal and Toronto. There are growing problems of unemployment among Black youths, in both countries."

The background and work of SOPEMI are discussed, with an emphasis on the development of the organization's statistics and the generation of its annual report. The author concludes that "one of the greatest contributions of SOPEMI has been its ability to signal changes in the patterns and processes of international migration in Western Europe and North America as they have happened."

"In this paper the labour force aspects of the adaptation of family class immigrants [in Canada] is looked at.

Data are from a survey of 1,400 family class immigrants who entered Canada during the period April 1981-March 1984. The author finds that "family class immigrants do have [a] higher unemployment rate than the other categories of immigrants....However, being family class, the unemployed among them are not supported by the public treasury since the sponsoring relative provides the necessary economic support. They [also] have higher than the labour force participation rate they intended to have on entering Canada...."

"Since the mid 1970s, a number of Asian countries, including the Philippines, have encouraged labour emigration. By 1986, it is estimated that the number of Filipino workers abroad exceeded 800,000, amounting to just under 8 per cent of the non-agricultural labour force. In the same year, it is estimated that these workers remitted approximately U.S. 1.8 billion [dollars] of foreign exchange back to the Philippines, an amount equal to over 30 per cent of merchandise exports, making remittances the top ranking export industry in terms of foreign exchange earnings. The rationale for a policy of labour export derives from its perceived developmental benefits to the emigration country....Drawing upon evidence from the Philippines, it is the purpose of this paper to investigate the extent to which these perceived developmental benefits are realized."

Those economic forces [that] influence the selection of the individuals who will emigrate are also examined. When discussing the supply of and demand for labour the paper looks at the actual and perceived financial and social losses and gains to both the countries of immigration and emigration."

"This article will analyze how basic concepts are used to characterize migration. In doing so, reference will be made not only to the definitions underlying actual statistical systems, but also to the internationally accepted 'model' definitions....An in-depth analysis of the nature of [these] definitions may reveal their potential limitations and thus allow an assessment of whether the achievement of homogeneity in statistical concepts should be the principal goal. Five basic concepts are considered...legal nationality, residence, place of birth, time and purpose of stay."

The relationship between migration and economic factors is analyzed using Costa Rica as an example, with data from official and other published sources. "This study [examines] the empirical relevance of a migration behavior model from an economic perspective....The model is based on the premise that interregional redistribution of people is a long-term utility maximization process which may involve heterogeneous utility functions, unequal perception of migration-related costs and benefits, and various constraint types and levels for different groups of people....The principal findings show that, in general, migrants are attracted by counties with higher earnings, more female labor force participation, lower levels of educational attainment, younger median age, more equitable income distribution, and greater availability of public services....Probably the single most important finding is that in both urban and rural areas the in-migration rates of the poor are systematically less income and education elastic than those of the nonpoor."

"In order to determine correlates of Israeli intra-urban residential mobility, data from the 1983 general census of the population were gathered from the 61 Israeli towns with at least 5,000 inhabitants the majority of which are Jews. Inhibiting and intensifying factors of mobility were identified. It was found that juvenile crime, percent of Asian/African inhabitants, percent female unemployment and mean family size were positively and significantly related to intra-urban mobility. On the other hand, quality of living, median education, mean gross income, uncrowded households and mean age were negatively and significantly related to residential mobility."

"The population dynamics of Don Daeng, a rice-growing village in Northeast Thailand, was studied as part of an integrated village study program in 1981-1984. The mortality and fertility rates since the 1930s were determined from data obtained by interviewing 232 ever-married women who gave birth to 876 children, while those for the preceding periods were estimated from the village population in three separate years and by extrapolation of the trend since the 1930s, which was adjusted for the results of the national censuses....[Results indicate that] immigration dominated until the early 1940s, when paddy acreage could no longer be expanded, and since then emigration has taken place."

"A multinomial logit model focusing on economic and other locational factors is formulated and applied to data on place-to-place migration in Israel. Results indicate the effects of expected industrial wage differentials, in accordance with the hypothesis of Harris and Todaro (1970), and of disparities in the structure of industrial employment, suggesting that perceived risk as well as expected return enter into the decision to migrate, as Stark and Levhari (1982) have argued. Other effects include those associated with regional differentials in amenities and agglomeration associated with urbanization, population mobility by age group, center-periphery migration trends, border security hazards, and the like. Implications of the analysis for the Israeli policy of population dispersion are discussed."

"In this paper an existing three-stream model of migration is adopted and extended to provide a first representation of district-district flows within Great Britain in 1980-81. The extended model incorporates an option for prospective migrants to choose commuting rather than a residential move after finding a new workplace, and employs a logistic function of distance in the regional or environmental stream where migrational opportunities tend not to be independent. Results are presented for the distribution of flows between local, regional, and national streams and for the geographical pattern of pushes and pulls in each."

It explains 75% of the (cross-sectional) variance in the data. The results presented in this paper depart from previous empirical work due to its industrialized context and its focus on risk aversion as a determinant of the migration decision. The results support the Harris-Todaro (1970) hypothesis, and indicate that regional similarities in the structure of industrial employment promote migration."

"This paper presents a two-sector dynamic model of regional population change. The model contains a migration equation, an earnings equation, and an amenity equation for each region. In the context of this model, migration is seen as a disequilibrium process through which the regional populations move towards equilibrium positions. Migration occurs when one region is perceived to be superior to the other on the basis of its earnings and amenity levels. Equilibrium is achieved when population movements between the regions eliminate any differences in their relative attractiveness. A comparative-static analysis of the model is presented to analyze the effects of policy changes and exogenous shocks on the distribution of population among the regions."

"During the 1970s the [U.S.] South shifted to net black in-migration. The trend continues in the 1980s. This reversal at the regional scale reflects social and economic forces that have increased opportunities for blacks. This shift is a reversal of highly channelized migratory streams linking specific southern and northern states. Southward flows reflect behavioral processes in black migration. The reversal demonstrates that structural and behavioral viewpoints on migration are complementary."

"An analysis of migration patterns and migrant adjustment in peninsular Malaysia is presented, based on [recent] data from the Malaysian Family Life Survey. The analysis revealed that urban/rural residence, ethnicity, motivations underlying migration, and manner of securing employment are important determinants of the duration of the job search and of post-migration income. It was further noted that transferees form a distinct stream of migration. They differ from other migrants in age, education, employment, and post-migration income. In discussing the significance of these findings, attention is drawn to the impact of government policies on types of migration streams, and to the size of the public (or formal) sector as a determinant of work-related migration, or transfers."

"The purpose of this paper is to review some data on the behavior of nonmigrants and of migrants by their origin and destination in order to assess whether regional differences in wages, prices, and access to public health and education programs might explain distinctive patterns of life-cycle behavior in Colombia consistent with the hypothesized role of population heterogeneity and migration....Section II illustrates the nature of selectivity bias that migration introduces for studies of household economic and demographic demands and the conditions under which this bias may be quantitatively important. Illustrative data from the Colombian 1973 Census sample are briefly described in Section III, and evidence is presented on wage and program variation by region. A series of tabulations of the Census data are reported in Section IV that confirm the hypothesized migrant selection process affecting behavior in Colombia. The concluding section discusses the implications of this process for understanding how migration affects household behavior and how estimates of household demand equations should incorporate migration."

Internal migration patterns in Spain from 1973 to 1982 are reviewed using data from official sources. Significant changes in migration flows are documented and attributed to the economic crisis that has been developing in Spain over this period. Among the changes noted are a slowing of rural-urban migration; during the period 1978-1982, an increase in return migration to previously depopulated areas; and an overall decline in migration. The author concludes that these changes will contribute to a more regionally balanced economic development in the future.

A systems approach is applied to the study of migration trends in Finland for the period 1971-1981, with particular attention to the period 1971-1978. The results indicate the existence of six permanent migration regions linked by a multilevel system. "The organization of this system varies from one part of the country to another, the most common modes being hierarchical tree flow networks belonging to a nodal system and polar and dendritic networks associated with a highly polarized system. The nodal system mode is seen to be increasing in currency."

Recent trends concerning the mobility of the population of the Soviet capital of Moscow and its surrounding regions are reviewed. Consideration is given to planning policies since the 1917 Revolution and their impact on the city's population growth, residential mobility, daily circulation, and periodic movements. The author notes that "an outward dispersion of housing on a massive scale, necessitated by renewal of the central area and continued pressure from immigration, has extended the scale of daily internal circulation for work, shopping and cultural purposes by various transport modes. Moscow's daytime population is also augmented by commuters from beyond the city limits, while the surrounding rural areas themselves experience an influx of city dwellers at weekends and in summer to use the hinterland's leisure facilities."

"Analyses of residential mobility are usually conditioned on a system of geography in which territory is divided into discrete units. Types of movement are defined in terms of these units, the most important distinction being that between local mobility and migration. Here we examine explicitly the implications of the choice of the migration-defining boundary in the U.S. over the 1940-1980 period. We demonstrate how boundary choice influences the extent and character of selectivity of the mobile population by using demographic and social characteristics. It appears that over time the state line may be replacing the county line in distinguishing kinds of migrants. Further, our results point to a growing fraction of footloose migrants, not tied to local territory, identified by their migration history rather than demographic characteristics."

"This paper tests the hypothesis that 1935-80 U.S. migration patterns both within and between metropolitan and nonmetropolitan areas and regions and migrant/nonmigrant educational differences reflect regional changes in socioeconomic development and settlement patterns. Gross migration flows support the mobility transition hypothesis and the idea that developmental changes in metropolitanization structure the context of migration. Since the Great Depression, socioeconomic transformations of the periphery have reduced differences in migration patterns between the periphery and core regions. While migrants still have more education than nonmigrants, their differences vary systematically by regional socioeconomic development."

"Registration data for Palestinian refugees compiled by UNRWA are examined for age heaping and digit preference in an effort to assess their general quality. The Myers' blended index is used and the Turner hypothesis of age heaping is tested. A relatively small amount of age heaping and digit preference in UNRWA data are observed, especially when compared with data from censuses conducted in countries in the Middle East. It has been found that the amount of digit preference has decreased through time and that it is less for males than for females. There are also variations by country. The conclusion is reached that the UNRWA data are useful but should be used with caution."

"This study evaluates the impact of migration and return migration on households in Puerto Rico. Interviews carried out in the city of Mayaguez generated data on the socioeconomic characteristics of return migrant heads of household and the domestic units to which they belong. The sample included return migrants with children enrolled in school in Puerto Rico and a comparable sample of nonmigrant households....Results show that economic reasons motivated the migration of Puerto Ricans to New York....Approximately one third of return migrant households were headed by a female. Almost half of them reported that change in marital status motivated their return to Puerto Rico....Return migrants have slightly lower annual family incomes compared to nonmigrants....Additional findings show returnees accumlated few resources during the migration period."

"The objective of this study is to construct a series of annual net rural-urban migration estimates for post-1949 China, and to examine the temporal patterns of rural-urban migration and urbanization. The paper begins with a review of the problems in two recent estimations of China's net rural-urban migration. By tackling the existing problems, and making other necessary adjustments, a set of reasonably accurate migration estimates and an interpretative account of the trends and special features of rural-urban migration in post-1949 China are presented. It is shown that the rate of rural-urban migration exhibits enormous fluctuations due to heavy government intervention. Rural-urban migration has also played a far more important role in urban growth than was previously portrayed in the literature. The periods of high net migration also generally coincide with periods of better economic performance. Finally, the current trend of rural-urban migration is examined."

Centre for Urban and Regional Development Studies Discussion Paper, No. 84, Sep 1987. 72 pp. University of Newcastle upon Tyne, Centre for Urban and Regional Development Studies: Newcastle upon Tyne, England. In Eng.
"A brief review of the early counterurbanisation literature, primarily Transatlantic, suggests that the concept is poorly specified. A core definition is proposed by counterposing the notions of 'spillover' and 'clean break'--this is then refined through a structured critique of alternative hypotheses of the causes of counterurbanisation. Even the most robust causal mechanisms identified (shifts in the production sector and the role of the state) suffer from attempts to generalise them across time and space. The empirical analysis illustrates the limitations of 'universal' models when confronted with the different urban and industrial history and trends within and between Italy and Britain."

The author examines post-1970 population redistribution shifts in the United States and their effects on metropolitan areas, using data from official and other published sources. "Migration processes that underlie these shifts...are evaluated in light of two theoretical perspectives....The regional restructuring perspective attributes recent losses to selective disinvestment in old manufacturing areas but anticipates gains to command and control center locations for expanded multilocational production organizations. The deconcentration perspective anticipates a pervasive diffusion of population associated with increasing locational flexibility of employers and residents. Redistribution shifts are evaluated by comparing the projected redistribution tendencies of the 1965-70 and 1975-80 migration streams for regions, metropolitan areas, and thirty-five individual metropolises. These comparisons support the deconcentration perspective."

"A time-minimization problem of attaining a full-employment state is solved in a dual economy model where the rural-urban migration mechanism is of [the] Harris-Todaro type. The optimum solution may appear as a policy of urban development at the most rapid rate."

Trends in counterurbanization, defined as the spatial deconcentration of regional population, are explored for the Federal Republic of Germany. "A counterurbanization pattern filtered-down from older to younger age-groups of the population, and appears related to an increasing preference for small-sized regions with natural amenities. For foreigners, a counterurbanization direction of movement can be explained by changes in immigration laws. While counterurbanization may be slowing down during the 1980s in certain developed countries, such as the United States, in the Federal Republic the phenomenon intensifies throughout the 1970-84 time period. Based on broad national demographic changes in combination with age-specific patterns of movement, this strong counterurbanization trend should continue well into the future."

[Interne Migration in Entwicklungslandern: zur Rationalitat von Land-Stadt-Wanderungen.] Zeitschrift fur Wirtschafts- und Sozialwissenschaften, Vol. 107, No. 2, 1987. 207-23 pp. Berlin, Germany, Federal Republic of. In Ger. with sum. in Eng.
"In many developing countries there is a positive and nondecreasing rural-urban net migration. As a rule, making migration decisions jointly is advantageous for individual potential migrants and their families. Rationality of migration decisions depends on the specific character of the constituents of the basic decision model. In most cases, individual or family rationality of migration does not coincide with collective rationality. Trying to bring the two together requires trying to improve the coordinative function of main economic variables and trying to improve the decision makers' information."

The characteristics of migration and migrants in Karachi, Pakistan, are studied using data from a 1984 survey of 286 migrants in squatter settlements in Karachi. Separate consideration is given to findings from the Christian and Moslem settlements. A conceptual model of circular migration is developed. The family as an important factor in migration is discussed, and motivations for and consequences of migration to urban areas are examined.

The impact of rice price-support policies, designed to increase farmers' income and reduce rural-urban migration in the Republic of Korea, is examined for the period 1976-1980 using a polytomous logistic model. "Our findings revealed that the elasticity of migration with respect to rice yield per origin farm household is positive and is significantly different from zero. The elasticities of migration with respect to rate of urbanization, particularly urban concentration-agglomeration, and population size of the destination are also positive and are significantly different from zero....Our findings questioned the wisdom of employing rice price price-support programs as a viable policy for reducing interregional and rural-to-urban migration in Korea."
