An examination of regional migration patterns in Mexico: new and
old Mexican regions. Genus, Vol. 44, No. 3-4, Jul-Dec 1988. 225-43
pp. Rome, Italy. In Eng. with sum. in Fre; Ita.
"This paper examines regional migration patterns in Mexico. Different regional definitions are used to examine four in- and outmigration periods in Mexico: 1979-80, 1975-79, prior to 1975, and lifetime. Five regional definitions were utilized to delineate Mexican regions at the state level....[and] are compared with regions created by a maximum likelihood clustering technique. The new regions differ from the previous five regions. Clustered regions based on inmigration and outmigration patterns are discussed. The results show different clustering patterns for in- and outmigration and point out that the use of net migration can be misleading since such an analysis pays little attention to different inmigration and outmigration patterns. The results are substantially consistent for the four migration periods."

55-72 pp. New York, New York/Berlin, Germany, Federal Republic of. In
"This paper represents the first attempt to model the two earner family decision to migrate using a joint search theoretic approach. In so doing, the paradox of a couple whose members would both migrate if single but decide not to migrate because they are married to each other is discovered and explained. Furthermore the impact of the rising number of working women and reentry of wives into the labor force on the extent and regional pattern of migration is discussed. Extensions to the model are addressed, as well as future avenues of research, both theoretical and empirical." A geographical focus on the United States is implied.

The significance of female migration per se is examined, with particular reference to Latin America. The author reviews the type and volume of female migration, examines female migrant characteristics, and describes some of the problems female migrants encounter.

Italy: recent trends. Labour, Vol. 2, No. 3, Winter 1988. 181-91
pp. Rome, Italy. In Eng.
"This paper points out the differing composition of present immigration flows to Italy compared to those of Italian migratory flows towards the more industrially advanced European countries over the past decades. The labour forces that constitute these present day immigration flows often possess medium to high educational qualifications, and are more frequently absorbed into the teritiary and agricultural markets, rather than the industrial sector. These immigrants rarely have regular, unionized occupations, and satisfy a demand for precarious, unstable labour which is in expansion in Italy, as in other countries. Furthermore, these immigration flows are directed not only towards those regions with high employment rates, but also to those with high unemployment rates. Thus, the implications are that the character of present day emigration can only be clearly understood by taking into account the highly segmented aspect of the labour market."

Once in America, however, it seems that not all Israeli-born Americans are as successful as portrayed by past research. In fact, the Census data reveal occupational and economic dualism among the population of Israeli-born Americans. The reasons for this dualism are discussed."

Whilst members of the first two groups are often in highly skilled occupations, members of the two last groups, together with the Portuguese, generally provide unskilled labour. They work mainly in the services sector, although some of them have found work in industry, mining and agriculture."

After the 1979 revolution there were some changes in the attitudes of Grenadians to migration, although many of the expected socioeconomic and demographic features of migration were still present. Migration may be seen as a means of circumventing low wages and limited opportunities, as a culturally specific pattern of behavior or as a combination of economic, political and cultural factors. After reviewing the pattern of Grenadian migration over the past 80 years, some of the causes of and attitudes to migration are examined and the meaning of migration for Grenadians is discussed."

"The aim of this paper is to interpret present migration from the countries of the Southern Shores to those of the Northern Shores of the Mediterranean. A comparison of these migration flows with those of the 60s, from South to North of Europe, underlines differences in the economic context of the receiving countries, in the channels of access, and reveals migrant workers as now being concentrated exclusively in the traditional and/or illegal occupations of the external sector. From this finding, the inadequacy of classical interpretations is thus verified, and a new model to specify this phenomenon is presented."

"Migration is often viewed as economically motivated. However many of the studies on which this is based are a result of either aggregate data or retrospective questioning of migrants. The present study indicates that such approaches may give a distorted view of migrants' motives. Our data indicate that nonmonetary career reasons are important instigators of migration among well educated international migrants. In addition these factors tend to be major perceived gains from migration. However, choice of destination is strongly influenced by location of friends and/or relatives. Reasons for discrepancies between this and previous studies are noted." The geographical focus is on India and Canada.

"The primary purpose of this study was to generate total net migration estimates for the Northern, Central, and Southern regions in Iraq between 1957 and 1977. This was accomplished by applying the Reverse Survival Ratio Estimate Method (RSRE). Since the RSRE method has not been used in a nation such as Iraq, which lacks complete census and vital statistics information, it was tested...using complete population data from the Mid-Atlantic Division of the United States. The test results indicated a reasonable level of accuracy in determining both the direction and the volume of the total net migration estimates over the 1960-70 period, given our assumptions." The authors conclude that this method of estimation is useful for economic and social development planning in countries with incomplete census data.

"Commonly used classifications of return and nonreturn migrants, based on birthplace and previous residence, do not accurately reflect the extent of familial and social ties behind recent black migration to the southern United States. Analysis of the household context of individual migration confirms evidence from in-depth interviews with migrants that thousands of black children and adults born outside the South are moving to the region as part of return migration. A reinterpretation of migration categories underscores social trends of overriding importance in explaining destination choices."

"This paper introduces the notion of a neutral migration process (NMP) and applies it to an analysis of the interprovincial migration patterns of the young adults and the elderly in Canada during the 1976-81 intercensal period. The paper is motivated by the basic question: Does the redistribution potential of an observed migration process depend more on the departure process or on the destination choice process? It turns out that the NMP can not only help answer our basic question but also yield further insights into observed migration processes."

The relationship between unemployment and interregional labor migration in the United Kingdom is explored using data from the Labour Force Survey for 1984 and 1977. The authors conclude that the experience of unemployment increases the likelihood of migration and that households in areas of high unemployment are more likely to move. They also find that during periods of higher overall unemployment, migration propensities are reduced.

After a quick theoretical review of the migration, the study makes an in-depth analysis of the village of origin and compares the migrants with the non-migrants on different aspects at the point of origin. It then examines in detail not only the factors leading to migration but also the adjustment pattern of the migrants at the point of destination.

"This research presents the age-sex structures of the refugee populations that arrived in the United States from Cambodia, Laos and Vietnam from 1975 through 1986. All three populations are young, but their age-sex structures vary in ways that confirm what is known anecdotally about their experiences before and during flight and in the refugee camps awaiting resettlement. Over time, the age-sex composition of the arriving refugee cohorts has shifted in ways that may indicate changes in factors influencing their migration. In the United States, available data indicate very high fertility in the early years after arrival. Even if their fertility falls rapidly, the refugees' age structure will lead to a generation of rapid growth."

A comparative analysis of the interactions between family life and rural-urban migration in Czechoslovakia and France is presented using data on life event histories from retrospective surveys. The results indicate that "whereas in France most of those migrations to metropolitan [areas] concern singles, in Czechoslovakia this migration usually takes place between marriage and the birth of the first child. Fertility in both countries is reduced by this migration, but increased by a migration to less urban zones. We illustrate how migrants' characteristics (family origin, education, profession, etc.) affect both their family life and their migrations."

"The modernization of farming and the agrarian reform initiated during the 1960s liberated part of the agricultural labour force in Ecuador's North Andean region. However, migration of these workers to the urban centres only gained momentum when the rural manufacturing industries which had provided alternative employment for a large proportion of them started to decline. The occupational integration of these migrants in the urban economies was achieved by the continuous expansion of the public sector and the existence of transition activities. The present deterioration of the economic situation is having considerable impact on this urban-rural mobility."
