In: African Population Conference/Congres Africain de Population, Dakar, Senegal, November/novembre 7-12, 1988. Vol. 2, 1988. 4.1.1-15 pp. International Union for the Scientific Study of Population [IUSSP]: Liege, Belgium. In Eng. with sum. in Fre.
The author investigates changes in patterns of population migration and economic development in the ECOWAS region, which is made up of 16 Western African countries that formed an economic community in 1980. "In the history of this region, from pre-colonial to post-colonial periods, it is possible to recognize distinct periods within which movement patterns have differed, not only with respect to volume and origin/destination patterns, but also with respect to causes or influences. This paper attempts to assess population movements in relation to these periods. The term movement is used here in a general sense to include both permanent and temporary migrations....The discussion in this paper has...necessarily been restricted to the countries for which data are available."

In Fre. with sum. in Eng; Spa.
"Who moves among the elderly? With whom do the elderly move? With whom will they stay once they have migrated? These are the main questions discussed in this paper. On the basis of a sample of individual data obtained from the censuses of Italy and the United States, data which were analysed by taking the household--and not, as is traditionally done, the individual--as the observation unit, the author concludes that there are some significant differences between the two countries as far as migration behavior of the elderly is concerned, even if there are also many similarities."

"In empirical work on population migration, researchers have utilized many different measures of migration. One measure that is used periodically is an 'allocation rate', most commmonly defined as the number of persons moving from origin i to destination j during the time period divided by the total number of outmigrants from origin i during the period....In this paper, previous work on allocation rates is discussed and one study is replicated for the 1975 to 1980 period. It is demonstrated that inclusion of origin variables in such models is theoretically incorrect and results in substantial biases in empirical work. Inclusion of ratios of destination-to-origin variables is valid only with a very narrow interpretation." Data are from the 1960 U.S. census.

"This paper designs a multiarmed bandit (MAB) sequential model for the analysis of the migration-job search process. The implications either are compatible with well-known migration behavior or, when novel, are also plausible. For example, regions with large wage variability attract migrants, and regions with large nonpecuniary returns increase both in migration and out migration. A major advantage of this approach is the relative ease with which martingale estimators can be derived from the martingale structure of the model. These martingale methods are exemplified for the return migration phenomenon."

"Suggestions are made for ending conventional distinctions between international and internal migration which have limited relevance in Africa. Adequate means do not exist for measuring forms of population movement which are important in Africa and which are relevant for realistic social and economic planning.

Migration in the Philippines is analyzed through an examination of migrants in Dagupan City, a provincial city in the lowland Philippines. The focus of the study is on the ties maintained between migrants and family members residing elsewhere. Data, collected in 1978-1979, are from a series of in-depth family case studies, which include biographical information on individual migrants and their relatives, and data on interactions among family members. "These case studies are placed into the larger structural context, including data on urban and regional economic patterns, migration patterns, and features of Filipino culture and social structure that affect migration." The study indicates how migration of all kinds plays an important role in increasing a family's income.

"This paper presents an attempt to investigate the differential contributions of return migrants and non migrants [in Nigeria] to rural economy with respect to their level of investment in rural productive activities. The study is [a] sequel to the controversy generated by the selectivity theory which tends to suggest that return migrants are superior to, and more enterprising than non migrants. The relevant data were collected from 363 returnees and non migrants....An examination of the differential characteristics of the two groups shows that returnees are slightly superior to their non migrant counterparts. The differential characteristics seem to translate to differences in investment level and the general conclusion is that return migrants are likely to invest more in rural productive activities than non migrants."

"Migration from Mexico to the United States is viewed very differently by those two nations. The United States perspective is that of illegal immigrants invading their nation, especially during times of national unemployment. From the Mexican perspective, people migrate across the border in response to quite predictable labor supply and demand pressures. The fact that for many years the United States held undocumented labor to be punishable for the worker but not for the employer suggests a tacit recognition of the labor supply/demand factor, but a recognition tainted by discrimination."

"This paper examines the Indonesian overseas employment program. It is limited to overseas deployment through the official channels, i.e. organised by licensed labour suppliers and approved by government authorities. The main destination of this official labour migration is the Middle East. Indonesian officials have indicated that the government aims to increase overseas employment and to shift deployment from houseworkers to better skilled workers. It is argued in the paper that, in view of a shrinking labour market for migrants, even limited realisation of these hopes would depend upon some distinct changes in the overseas employment program."

The relationship between the international migration of skilled labor and government policies affecting migration both directly and indirectly in Sub-Saharan Africa is explored. "At an intercontinental scale the deleterious effects of the global division of labour have not merely been passively accepted; within the continent new patterns of skilled-labour migration have been created by increasingly differentiated economic performance and political relationships. A case study of Kenya, a country of small current net immigration of skilled workers, is used to specify some of the processes that establish the relationships between immigration and emigration policies, and how these have been mediated by conditions for skilled workers."

"The purpose of this paper is to use demographic data to test [the] stereotype of the New Zealander [migrant] in Australia [as intent on exploiting the Australian social security system] and with it the idea that New Zealanders are of inferior 'quality' to other overseas born populations in Australia. At the same time it should be possible to offer some comment on the other stereotyped image which has emerged in relation to New Zealanders migrating to Australia--that of the Trans-Tasman 'brain drain' from New Zealand....The analysis is based largely on 1986 Census results." The author examines characteristics of this migrant population, including age distribution, spatial distribution, occupational levels, labor force participation, and length of residence in Australia.

Past and present trends in emigration from Haiti are reviewed. The author notes that over one million persons, or about one-sixth of the native-born population, are currently living abroad. This out-migration occurred primarily during the period of U.S. occupation from 1915 to 1934 and since the 1960s during the Duvalier regime. This migration has recently changed significantly in type, volume, and destination. The reasons for these changes are discussed.

The author makes a case for analyzing the process in Australia by which immigrants' occupational qualifications are reassessed so that migrants may become eligible to enter the labor force at the appropriate occupational level. It is concluded that the main reasons for such a reappraisal are the buoyancy of the Australian labor market and the need for skilled labor.

The nature and extent of poverty among immigrants to the United States from 1960 to 1980 is explored, with emphasis on public assistance utilization. The author first reviews U.S. immigration history, focusing on issues relevant to poverty and the receipt of public assistance. The research methodology is then described, and the results of the analysis are presented. A multivariate model of poverty at the family level is developed. The author concludes that there is some support for concerns that the increase in immigration during this period led to an increase in levels of poverty and welfare utilization among immigrants. However, although there is ample evidence that the level of poverty among immigrants increased, there is little evidence of a commensurate rise in the propensity of families to receive public assistance.

"The objective of this paper was to add an additional dimension to the conventional view of migrants' status attainment as being chiefly determined by socio-economic characteristics. This extra dimension postulates that migrants to the [United States] do not act socially or economically independently of other migrants who may be at different stages of the migrant process. Rather, there is a continuous exchange of information and knowledge between those who share the common bond of having migrated to the [United States]. The shape and form of the individual components of this information exchange constitute 'social networks'....[Findings indicate] social position can be strongly influenced by a migrant's ability to tap into a variety of informal networks, the importance of which vary across socio-economic covariates."

The return migration of people who left Poland prior to 1939 and returned during the post-war period is also discussed. Attention is paid to the available data concerning the number of people of German origin present in Polish territory in 1946.

"This paper is addressed to the interplay of careers and internal labour markets (ILMs) in explaining the international migration of professional and technical personnel, particularly within transnational corporations (TNCs). It begins by reviewing the current state of the theoretical art, focusing on five main elements: the international spatial division of labour; the concept of career; the organization of ILMs; the lubrication of the migration system by recruitment, placement and relocation agencies; and reintegration of returning expatriates. There follows a discussion of selected aspects of the volume and characteristics of ILM migrations among the highly-skilled, using government, employer organization's and individual company data."

"This paper briefly outlines the occupational profile of Caribbean migrants and raises questions concerning the extent to which migrant outflow represents absolute loss....It is argued that circulation is not confined to commuter-type mobility but in the Caribbean it is also a feature of long-stay migration and the establishment of what are effectively transnational households. Though the characteristics and spatial behaviour of the household vary with the specific migration type, the transnational household provides a more appropriate model for analysing Caribbean migration and its implications than does the model based on migration as displacement."

"The few existing empirical studies of high-status migrants in Western European cities suggest that classical urban models describing and explaining the segregation of immigrant groups in the city do not apply to these movers. When compared to low-status movers of the recent past, high-status movers display certain marked differences, particularly in the presence of dependants from the outset and in voluntary extensive employer involvement in housing provision or search, but there are also similarities in their restriction to the privately-rented housing sector. The characteristics and location of high-status migrants and of gastarbeiter in Vienna are here compared, demonstrating that there is a need for new urban models to deal with high-status migrant settlement in Western European cities."

"Although the pattern of polarization reversal reported by Vining and Pallone in the 1970s and the re-emergence of core-ward net migration that they now report for the 1980s are problematic if viewed from the perspective of a short-term time horizon, they are easily understandable in a long-wave context. Evidence is provided for 55-year waves of urbanward migration [in the United States], each of which reached its nadir during the nation's major stagflation crises. The periodic repetitions of the phenomena described by Vining and Pallone suggest the relevance of the interpretations provided by long-wave theory."

"Cochrane and Vining's study of recent trends in core-periphery migration, while suffering from some weaknesses in methodology and interpretation, confirms very clearly that the reversal of the metropolitan migration turnaround is a widespread phenomenon in the developed non-Communist world. Evidence from the United Kingdom also supports this observation. An examination of the possible factors responsible for the rise and fall of counterurbanization over the past two decades suggests that two major forces--population deconcentration and regional restructuring--are operating simultaneously but relatively independently and that they both fluctuate in their nature and strength over time in response to prevailing demographic and economic circumstances."

"This chapter outlines the main changes which are taking place in the spatial distribution of the British population and examines the migration patterns which form the principal mechanism behind these trends. Particular attention is given to the accentuation of the drift from North to South since the late 1970s, the current scale of population deconcentration from the major metropolitan centres to smaller towns and more rural areas, and the emerging population patterns in the so-called 'inner city areas'." Attention is also paid to the importance of subnational perspectives and the inadequacy of data on local area populations. The author concludes with a discussion of the challenges of population redistribution and associated social polarization.

"The main finding of this article is that net internal migration to the core regions in the countries of the developed world, which subsided in the 1970s, increased in the 1980s, although not to the level of the 1960s. In some countries of northwest Europe there is a balance now in net flows between core and periphery. In the countries of the periphery of Europe and Japan net internal migration to the core regions increased slightly in the 1980s. Net migration flows to the periphery have completely reversed in Canada, and net flows out of the core regions of the United States have been significantly reduced. In eastern Europe, however, there is still moderate net migration to the core regions without any interruption as seen in western Europe, North America, and Japan. In South Korea and Taiwan rates of net migration to the core regions have been reduced from their high levels of the 1970s, but they are still quite high and show no clear sign of a break from the past."

"This paper analyses migration between the London boroughs using a discrete probability model, but with a correction for excess dispersion to that expected under the Poisson process. Two sources of migration data are used: one-year migration from the 1981 Census; and ten-year migration from the OPCS Longitudinal Study. The evidence from both sets is that both housing and labour market factors are relevant to explaining interborough migration, in addition to the distance and mass terms of the basic gravity model. The labour market effects suggest that migration generally equilibrates differences in excess labour supply between the boroughs, though less strongly in the recession year 1980-81."

The author analyzes the economic effects of migration in Italy, with a focus on the role of large-scale movements from the South to the North. He notes that despite government policy designed to promote economic growth in the South, the economic gap between the South and the more prosperous North has in fact widened in recent years. The author calculates that during the 30-year period from 1951 to 1981, the total advantage gained by the central and northern regions through migration from the South is the equivalent of 3.7 times the gross domestic product of Italy in 1986.

"Data from the [Office of Population Censuses and Surveys] Longitudinal Study are used to trace the social class effects of migration between the South East region and the rest of England and Wales in the period 1971-81. The analysis begins with the migration streams into and out of the South East of those people who were in the labour market (including the unemployed) at both census dates. The paper then proceeds to an analysis of the migration streams of those who entered or left the labour market between 1971 and 1981. Finally, the effects of the migration streams on the social class composition of both the South East and the rest of England and Wales are summarised. The results are interpreted in the light of debates about change in the British urban and regional system."

Recent trends in migration in the United States are reviewed, focusing on the links between regional and metropolitan population change. Three explanations for the counterurbanization phenomenon of the 1970s are presented and their implications for future migration trends considered. The author concludes that "while 1970s core region declines may have been strongly linked to the counterurbanization process, post-1980 core region gains do not appear to signal a return to the metropolis."

"This paper demonstrates that jobs and wages are considerably more important than location-specific amenities in explaining net metropolitan migration of employed persons [in the United States]. These results, which are derived mainly from a unique set of annual migration data, differ considerably from the earlier findings of P. E. Graves...that show amenities to be powerful contributors to the analysis of net metropolitan migration. Several hypotheses are offered and tested to explain the appreciable difference between Grave's results and those of the present study, but the importance of economic factors as opposed to amenities persists."

The residential mobility of households in the reduction stage in the Netherlands is examined. Such households are defined as those having a female head aged 47 years or older. "In this article it is shown that the propensity to move demonstrated by these households is strongly influenced by tenure of the (previous) dwelling, quality of that dwelling, and the age of the head of the household. Housing choice of moving households is mainly related to tenure of the (previous) dwelling, household composition, and the characteristics of the housing market."

"This paper attempts to overview and assess developments in the scale, types and impact of population mobility in Indonesia since 1971." Difficulties concerning the availability of data are first considered. "Using qualitative and quantitative information from a range of sources it is evident in this paper that population mobility in Indonesia has a level, scale and complexity that belies the conventional stereotyping of most Indonesians as being highly immobile, scarcely travelling beyond the well-trodden social space of their village and its immediate environs. There are many reasons to explain the increasing population movement; however, there is uncertainty surrounding future patterns of population movement in Indonesia."

"This paper is concerned with the volume, pattern, and reasons for interstate migration in India during the decade 1971-81. The data used are from the 1981 census of India tabulated on a five per cent sample basis. It is estimated that there were about 11.37 million interstate migrants during the decade 1971-81, among whom 5.93 million were females. Among the component flows between urban-rural areas, the three flows rural to rural, rural to urban, and urban to urban were almost equal in volume, while the urban to rural flow was comparatively quite small." Reasons for migration are analyzed. The results show that "the states with large industrial and urban bases, those experiencing agricultural development, and those which are favoured by government policies experienced significant immigration during the decade."

Factors affecting migration within the Russian Soviet Federated Socialist Republic are explored. The authors note that the main factor influencing migration in the long term is the location of production facilities. However, in the short term, differences in standard of living are important. The authors conclude that the demand for labor and the provision of housing are the main factors affecting interregional migration, with housing playing the crucial role.

"Using data from the 1974 Population Census of Sierra Leone, this study has investigated the extent to which migration occurs in response to opportunities. A disequilibrium pattern of migration was observed in Sierra Leone, with migration flows going from less to more developed regions of the country. A relatively new measure of opportunities--economic diversity--was found to have the strongest effects on interregional migration, even in the presence of some other variables used in previous research. Analyses have also shown that cultural dissimilarity is a barrier to migration and that the former is a dimension of distance."

Our goal is to compare the effects on local labor markets of distinctive public-sector programs with those of traditional market variables. We find that local income taxes and tax-equalization grants have important effects on local labor markets; regional development policy measures and geographical-mobility subsidies do not. Thus, recent efforts scaling back some of these programs may not materially alter the regional economy's performance. Wages and other traditional market variables are also often found to influence significantly local labor markets."

Empirical results suggest that the equilibrium model is more consistent with actual migration patterns than is the conventional disequilibrium approach. We estimate compensating differentials and migration elasticities for these variables."

Migration is observed at the county level, gross as well as net flows are measured, and the data support the estimation of regression models that explain mobility by individual characteristics. The findings suggest that education and a long-term decline in the importance of location-specific human capital promoted labor market integration, that departures from the South were small in overall migration flows, that frontier settlers differed little from persisters, that reverse migration was concentrated among the young, and that substantial differences in regional patterns of movement persisted after controlling for individual characteristics."

This is a review of trends in the development of urban and rural settlements in the USSR. Attention is paid to the effect on settlement of the location of production facilities and to population distribution under conditions of perestroika, under which more emphasis is being given to freedom of choice and less to central planning. Ways to make the establishment of new settlements more efficient given regional differences are considered.

Current theoretical sociological studies of international migration are reviewed with a view to assessing their relevance to the study of refugee migration. The author concludes that such studies have not generally taken the case of refugees into account. He also concludes that empirical studies concerning refugees have been conducted on an ad hoc basis that is largely unconcerned with developments in sociological theory.

Problems concerning the resettlement of those made homeless by the construction of dams to create reservoirs in Thailand are considered. The authors attempt "firstly, to examine the rationale for spontaneous and planned resettlement in Thailand. Secondly, the determinants of the success or failure of resettlers are explored with reference to selected planned resettlement projects. Finally, resettlement alternatives for prospective reservoir evacuees are proposed."

H.5. Temporary Migration

Migration, both internal and international, in which the stay is temporary. Includes return migration, transit migration, commuting, and seasonal migration.

The social and economic problems associated with the temporary rural labor scarcity existing in some developing countries are explored using an example from Peru. The study concerns the seasonal migration of Aymara-speaking highland peasants to the east Andean valleys, where they grow coffee. The author shows that the low price obtained for coffee forces these migrants to maintain highland food crop production and thus prevents their permanent migration. She concludes that "the rural labor scarcity produced by their migrations generates ecological decline in the lowlands and intracommunity conflicts and declining networks of production in the highlands."

Migration and Development Program Discussion Paper, No. 42, Dec 1988. 20 pp. Harvard University, Center for Population Studies, Migration and Development Program: Cambridge, Massachusetts. In Eng.
"This paper highlights a difference between migrants and the native-born viz., a positive probability of return migration. The analysis demonstrates that this probability results in migrants' saving more than comparable native-born and in migrants' work effort being higher than that of comparable native-born. This differential may explain why, even if all workers are perfectly homogeneous in skills, migrants often outperform the native-born in the receiving economy."

"This study examines the inter-provincial return migration phenomenon within the context of the 1966-1971 Canadian experience, specifically, what factors differentiate return from non-return inter-provincial movers. Utilizing the individual file of the 1971 Census Public Use Sample Tape, it was possible to identify return movers, as well as the population at risk, in a more meaningful way than is possible using other traditional data sources. The employment of dummy dependent-variable regression revealed that the opportunity structure and language barrier (represented by destination region), as well as the demographic variable age, proved to be the most significant factors differentiating these two types of inter-provincial movers from one another."

In 1986 the South African government relaxed the law that made it illegal for blacks to live in urban areas. The author discusses some reasons why blacks might choose to remain in rural areas and continue as migrant laborers. In particular, a critique is presented of arguments that base their explanations of the continuance of migrant labor on the value system or culture of migrant laborers.

Vol. 2, 1988. 4.1.41-55 pp. International Union for the Scientific Study of Population [IUSSP]: Liege, Belgium. In Eng. with sum. in Fre.
Trends in urban-rural return migration in Western Province, Kenya, are analyzed. The author "first examines recent theoretical and empirical evidence on the Kenyan experience, then proceeds with consideration of Western Province taken as a whole, and of one distinctive part of it, the three southern Locations of Kakamega District. The paper concludes with some suggestions for policy initiatives that will affect the patterns and nature of the population mobility between the Province and the rest of Kenya."

The results of a survey carried out in 1982-1983 in a densely populated area of northern Cameroon are presented. The survey included a section in which household heads were asked what measures should be taken to reduce rural-urban migration. "The ten actions most frequently mentioned concerned: hydraulic development; employment; health, school and transport installations; food relief; financial aid; the end of 'oppression'; agricultural development; and tax reduction."

"This paper draws on census data to examine comparatively the patterns of age and sex differentials in rural to urban migration in two Indian states, namely Kerala and West Bengal. It is contended in the paper that migration in India is selective of a very wide range of age groups from 15 to 49 years. Age selectivity in migration tends to differ markedly by sex. In general, female migrants are younger than male migrants, and female migrants in West Bengal are still younger than those in Kerala. Since marriage plays an inevitable role in migration of women, they tend to be more migratory than men. This paper has sought to suggest that differing sociocultural conditions largely account for variations in migration differentials between states."

Trends in internal migration in Botswana are analyzed, with a focus on rural-urban migration. Data are from the 1981 census and from a survey carried out in 1979. The authors note that even though the predominance of subsistence agriculture acts as a deterrent to rural-urban migration, it is probable that the total and percentage of people living in urban areas will increase. However, the magnitude and pattern of future migration will fluctuate over time as social and economic conditions change.
