"In this article, we quantify the impact of [Malaysia's agricultural development policies and resettlement programs]...on local out-migration rates, linking macro and micro approaches and using data from the Malaysian Family Life Survey, national censuses, and other sources. A model of instantaneous migration rates specifies an individual's migration rate as a function of individual-level sociodemographic characteristics, the level of urbanization of the origin and destination, and the extent of rural development at the district of current residence. Our results show that in the late 1960s and early 1970s, the existence of rural development centers in a district reduced the levels of out-migration to pre-1965 levels."

[Mobilite en France et a Paris depuis 1945: bilan residentiel d'une generation.] Population, Vol. 44, No. 3, May-Jun 1989. 531-59 pp. Paris, France. In Fre. with sum. in Eng; Spa.
Trends in residential change among the post-World War II generation in France are analyzed. Data are from two retrospective surveys: a national survey of migration, occupation, and family histories of the cohorts born between 1911 and 1935, and a survey of cohorts born in the Paris region from 1926 to 1935. The results show that over a 45-year period, the average number of dwellings inhabited for more than one year was three. There are also clear differences by marital status and number of children.

In: Advances in regional demography: information, forecasts, models, edited by P. Congdon and P. Batey. 1989. 180-204 pp. Belhaven Press: London, England. In Eng.
"This [article] considers the role of migration to, from and within London [England] in the context of metropolitan labour and housing markets. It assesses the influence on migration of differentials in employment and housing availability between the constituent boroughs of Greater London, and conversely the extent to which migration gains or losses have impacts on the demand for labour and housing. The reciprocal relations involved are studied within a simultaneous equations framework, while the specifically labour-market role of migration is examined in more detail using a labour-market accounts procedure."

56:10418 Deane, Glenn D. Mobility and adjustments: paths to the resolution of residential stress. Demography, Vol. 27, No. 1, Feb 1990. 65-79 pp. Alexandria, Virginia. In Eng.
"In theory, residential mobility is a response to environmental stress only if households do not reduce dissatisfaction through other alternatives, such as housing improvements or repairs. Despite the attention given to stress-reducing alternatives, however, no attempt has been made to test empirically the residential satisfaction model with adjustments. Using data from the [U.S.] Annual Housing Survey: 1978-1981, I model three stages in the mobility process and investigate potential sources of specification error in previous tests. Blocks of family cycle, background/action state, and location/housing variables are shown to affect adjusting significantly. Residential satisfaction strongly affects mobility preferences; and all theoretically relevant blocks of explanatory variables predict mobility."

The migration turnaround that has occurred in Europe, excluding Eastern Europe, since the 1970s is analyzed. Factors that may have influenced this phenomenon are considered, including changes in individual aspirations and residential preferences, deconcentration of employment opportunities, and policy changes. The author concludes that a major influence has been the emergence of a new spatial division of labor.

"The history of Burkinabe migration since 1900 has been reconstructed mainly from colonial administration documents. This article endeavours to recreate that history from retrospective information collected within the context of a national inquiry on migration in Burkina Faso. While this distinctly 'African' view concurs for the most part with the archival data, each source contributes its own specific dimension. Only on the phenomenon of outward migration do these sources differ. Well-presented in the colonial reports, this form of migration is 'forgotten' by the inquiry of 1974-75."

"Nepal has been experiencing rapid population growth in recent decades. Another significant demographic feature is the increasing volume of population redistribution. This paper presents an overview of migration in Nepal over the last three decades based on census data and selected survey reports....The opening of the lowlands through malaria control and resettlement programs [since the mid-1950s] provided a new frontier for large-scale rural-to-rural migration. Other forces accentuating migration to the lowlands were the concentration of infrastructural and development activities there. Immigration from high-density areas across the open border with India is growing, as well. Thus the lowlands have now emerged as the area of migrant convergence from within and outside the country....The lowlands are undergoing significant changes in demographic character, social composition, land use, and economic development. Recent economic and demographic processes have all the potential of transforming the lowlands into a dynamic region. This development has various policy implications for Nepal's population redistribution, spatial development, and sociopolitical future."

"A general introduction to migration theory is presented. The author distinguishes international and internal migration and considers the implications of this distinction for demographic and geographical studies. Two main functions of migration are also examined: the territorial redistribution of demographic characteristics and the time regulation of incentives to marry or child-spacing in the family of migrants." Polish data are used to suggest appropriate models for the study of migration.

The author examines the relationships among income, migration, and fertility in Malaysia, taking into account selectivity bias. "The results, based on the two-stage probit analysis using the Malaysian Family Life Survey data, reveal a rather stark contrast between the two estimates [including and excluding selectivity bias]. We further observe that those who did migrate earn less and have fewer children, compared to the average couple of the sample had they chosen to migrate, while those who did not migrate earn more, compared to the average couple had they chosen to stay. The data used here do not seem to support the notion that expected income gains influence the decision to migrate."

"We argue that confusion over the role of structural variables vis-a-vis residential satisfaction stems from a failure to incorporate varying time frames and housing tenures in predicting mobility expectations. More specifically, we hypothesize that structural variables operate through residential satisfaction in the short term (1 year) but independently affect moving expectations in the long term (5 years). Further, we hypothesize that the mediating influence of residential satisfaction is weaker for renters than for home owners. These hypotheses are tested by using survey information for a random sample of Phoenix [Arizona]-area home owners and renters."

56:10428 Mlay, Wilfred. African migration decision-making process. Eastern Africa Social Science Research Review, Vol. 4, No. 1, Jan 1988. 69-81 pp. Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. In Eng.
Factors affecting the decision to migrate in Africa are reviewed. The author concludes that most migration studies have focused on the individual migrant, whereas migration decision-making in Africa is affected primarily by "the social institutions at local and household levels. Patterns of migration are influenced by the economic and social trends which developed especially since the colonial era." The importance of extended family relationships, agrarian change, forced migration, and restrictive migration policies indicate a need to take a macrolevel approach to the study of African migration.

"Comparison of Norwegian 'linked' decennial census data with statistics compiled from 10 years' migration registrations showed that the amount of movement omitted by census data was considerable. This hidden movement was of a similar order at every administrative level, but only when total movement was considered. There was wide variation between regions, migration directions, and streams. In some cases census data misrepresented the direction of net movement. Available evidence suggests that these patterns are not confined to Norway, raising the possibility that research findings based on census-derived migration data may merely be artifacts of the data."

The authors develop a method for estimating out-migration rates. "Migration rates calculated on the basis of enumeration...without any adjustment, for mortality, return migration, remigration, and ageing, will be misleading. Corrections for return migration or remigration from census data are difficult but adjustment of the migration data for mortality risk and ageing is possible. The present investigation, accordingly, suggests a method for the same and illustrates its application to the data from the Indian Census of 1971."

"The purpose of this article is to stress the importance of taking female migration into account in research and especially in policy formulation." The focus is on migration in Latin America. "An increasing body of research findings demonstrates the importance of women migrants--especially women as independent migrants. The predominance of women in Latin American rural-to-urban migration flows is well known, but female majorities are found in other important flows (e.g., in some inter-urban and international flows) as well. In general, female migrants tend to be younger than their male counterparts. The kinds of employment most commonly sought by women migrants are related to their traditional roles in the home and in child-rearing."

"The paper provides an overview of the data sources which may be used to reconstruct the patterns of migration in colonial Mexico, stressing the problems of their intepretation and providing methods that may be used to utilise them to the most advantage. It then examines, as an example of the use of such sources, the patterns of migration in eighteenth-century Michoacan, a densely populated region located to the west of Mexico City. Here data from a dozen parishes are studied, revealing unknown fluctuations in the migration fields of the marrying population, complex patterns of net immigration and emigration, and changing rates of spatial exogamy."

"This paper considers deficiencies of the net migration concept and illustrates them with numerical examples....It begins with a discussion of how net migration rates are introduced into the analysis of spatial population dynamics and then goes on to identify the bias that such a formulation produces. A further problem arises when age patterns of migration are taken into account; the paper considers how the strong relationship between migration and the life course is camouflaged by net migration rates." Some migration data for the United States are used as an example.

"A model of the spatial distribution of mobile heterogeneous agents is formulated to assess how a price change or program subsidy that is location-specific affects the composition of local residents via selective migration and thus biases evaluations of the effectiveness of the program based on its local consequences. Longitudinal data from Colombia are used to test the implications of migration selectivity. The findings confirm the existence of selective migration, suggesting that local subsidies to human capital attract high-income but, within income groups, low-fertility households and those with low human capital endowments. These migration patterns are shown to be consistent with the dominance of endowment over tastes heterogeneity in the population under plausible behavioral assumptions."

The relationship between labor migration and relative deprivation is examined. "We model migration from one reference group to another as a response to relative deprivation and satisfaction: We say that a strong incentive to migrate exists if relative deprivation decreases while satisfaction rises with migration and that a weak incentive exists if the individual increases or decreases his satisfaction and deprivation at the same time by migrating. We derive conditions under which different incentives, weak or strong, hold for different individuals....Our analysis enables us to explain several perplexing migratory phenomena, identify income inequality as a distinct explanatory variable of migration and establish an incentive to migrate in situations where the utility-social welfare approach does not."

Chapter 2 explores the historical and geographical context of the study and compares the characteristics of the places that served as destinations for the migrants described here. Chapter 3 presents a method of measuring and comparing the migration fields that formed around these destinations and examines the dimensions of the different fields in relation to the local economies they helped to sustain. Chapter 4 focuses on the social context of migration and describes the associations between types of migrants and particular patterns of movement. Chapter 5 summarizes the results of the preceding chapters and places them in the broader context of economic development and social change on the eve of Independence."

Global inequality is considered as a structural given. The article then reviews major topics, including the persistence of restrictive immigration policies as barriers to movement, changing patterns of exploitation of foreign labor, liberalization of exit from the socialist world and the refugee crisis in the developing world. It concludes with a brief consideration of the normative implications of these trends."

The data for the study come from a 1986 survey of 3,911 respondents from the Philippines and the Republic of Korea who were interviewed in Manila and Seoul just after they had received their U.S. immigrant visas. Analyses are conducted to derive different types of multipliers that may be used in estimating the effects of chain migration....The empirical results for the Philippines and Korea indicate that the potential for future immigration through the family reunification entitlements of the immigration law is lower than has previously been suggested."

Trends in European migration since World War II are described, with particular attention to the situation in Italy. The authors note that Italy has changed from being a sending to a receiving country and that in contrast to the immigration experience of other European countries in the 1960s and early 1970s, recent immigration to Italy is concentrated in the service rather than the industrialized sector of the economy. This migration is confined to migrants willing to accept working conditions and wages below those of native workers.

"The decision problem of the guest worker as a target saver is considered. He plans to accumulate capital in the host country for investment in the home country after return migration. As the worker is supposed to be incompletely informed about the economic variables in the host country he might prolong his stay unexpectedly provided the economic conditions in the host country are unfavourable. Explicit conditions for the economic variables are given such that temporary migration turns into permanent migration."

This article reviews the theoretical framework and empirical evidence provided by the economics literature on these questions. It demonstrates that the economic approach, using the assumptions that individual migration behavior is guided by the search for better economic opportunities and that the exchanges among the various players are regulated by an immigration market, leads to substantive insights into these issues."

"Family, friendship and community networks underlie much of the recent migration to industrial nations. Current interest in these networks accompanies the development of a migration system perspective and the growing awareness of the macro and micro determinants of migration. This article presents an overview of research findings on the determinants and consequences of personal networks. In addition, it calls for greater specification of the role of networks in migration research and for the inclusion of women in future research."

The process of migration and migrant adaptation is analyzed using data on two population groups who migrated from Norway to the United States from the 1840s to 1910. The data are from Norwegian local community records. The results indicate "that 'chain migrations' resulted in tightly-knit settlements peopled by migrants of common origins. Not surprisingly, demographic behavior common to the places of origin was maintained initially by the ethnic settlements: Marital fertility remained high, household structure continued to be complex, and pre-nuptial conceptions were wide-spread. Within forty years, however, marital fertility declined and the simple household often augmented by single parents became the norm. The process of demographic change undergone by these immigrants was thus a complex interplay of continuity and change."

The authors analyze "two evaluative views of worker remittances [which] draw opposite conclusions. The negative one posits that remittances increase dependency, contribute to economic and political instability and development distortion, and lead to economic decline that overshadows a temporary advantage for a fortunate few. The positive view sees remittances as an effective response to market forces, providing a transition to an otherwise unsustainable development. They improve income distribution and quality of life beyond what other available development approaches could deliver. The implications are tested for labor supply countries to Europe and to the Middle East....Although the dire predictions of the pessimistic view have not materialized, the converse--contributions of remittances to economic performance--should not be overstated due to lack of data."

The authors examine the possible impact on patterns of Irish migration of the closer integration of the countries of the European Community that will occur in 1992. "We must use a number of simple models to illustrate: how migration can give rise to costs for the other residents of the migrant's countries of origin and destination; how, even in the absence of migration costs, congestion in the use of public goods and inappropriate taxation can give rise to a sub-optimal distribution of labour; and how national redistribution policies can lead to well paid people leaving poor countries. The implications of this type of analysis for European policy are developed. We also argue that the rationale for the type of intervention proposed can be made on equity grounds even when migration is absent."

It also suggests that analysis begin with the policy-setting processes of the state....Promising future directions in the study of state-to-state relations are also evaluated, with the anticipation that verifying regional or other intermediate patterns of world migration politics may contribute to more general theories of international political economy."

Problems concerning immigration and the low-cost housing shortage in Los Angeles, California, are analyzed. "Arrivals of new immigrants and the secondary migration of other immigrants to the Los Angeles area are estimated to be as many as 180,000 each year in the 1980s....Three-quarters of the immigrants were low-income minorities who are more likely to live in overcrowded enclaves and pay disproportionately high rents....Although aggravated by immigration, Los Angeles' low-cost housing ills stem from broader national, social and economic trends: gentrification and other commercial conversion of low-cost housing, stagnating federal housing aid, and diminished tax and loan incentives....While the area's housing problems require national and local responses in land use, finance, and development policies, immigration measures also must be considered. Stepped-up border and employer sanction enforcement and better coordination between immigration and urban development policies could help ease pressures on housing in Los Angeles and other immigration-impacted cities." Options for alleviating these problems are discussed.

Consideration is given to the causes of this emigration and to the consequences for the countries of destination, particularly West Germany. The author concludes that current economic and social conditions in Poland are likely to promote continued, if not increased, emigration of this kind in the foreseeable future. The possible role of the Polish population abroad in assisting Poland to improve conditions so as to reduce the desire for emigration is considered.

"This article provides a general overview of international migration trends and types during the postwar period. Its thesis is that international migration consists of a set of spatial networks which share many of the processes that create them, but that the networks are characterized by factors which vary geographically and distinguish one from another. Fuller analysis of these requires a systems approach to provide a framework within which to study the processes that produce flow patterns. It concludes that our ability to forecast future world patterns of international migration must be based on an assessment of the likely behavior of the component macro-regional systems we can recognize."

The author analyzes the economic consequences of immigration to the United States. "Among the many novel features of this theoretical and empirical study is a new analysis which demonstrates that--contrary to received economic doctrine--the standard theory of trade is not relevant to immigration, and there is no large consumer benefit from migration as there is from trade. And it systematically examines each of the major lines of influence of immigration upon the economy: the transfer-and-tax system, production capital, human capital, physical infrastructure, productivity, environmental externalities, and unemployment. A computable model estimates the aggregate effects of immigrants upon natives." Comparisons are made with the experience of other developed countries, including Canada and Australia. The author concludes that on the whole, immigration is largely beneficial to the natives of the receiving country.

"Nepal has been experiencing a permanent rural-to-rural migration of households from the central hill zone to the Terai region. Migrant households, due to the structure of the Terai economy, are impelled to acquire control of land for subsistence agriculture by squatting, purchasing, or receiving a grant. A household's ability to maximize subsistence opportunities is partly a function of the means by which land is acquired and whether land is acquired at all. Factors which determine the chances of acquiring land reflect the role of institutional rigidities such as the distribution of wealth and the caste structure, state-imposed land reform policies, and such household characteristics as family size and risk aversion. A multinomial logit model is used to empirically assess the importance of these elements in the outcomes of migrant households' resource acquisition decisions."

The authors evaluate the Poisson model's usefulness in analyzing migration flows, with particular emphasis on the Poisson assumption of independence between individual migrants. The authors argue that migration by individuals is generally undertaken as part of a household unit, so that such variation will be reduced if the household size of migrants is taken into account. Data from the 1971 United Kingdom census are used to illustrate this concept and to analyze interurban migration utilizing a generalized linear modeling approach.

In: Contemporary research in population geography: a comparison of the United Kingdom and the Netherlands, edited by John Stillwell and Henk J. Scholten. 1989. 175-86 pp. Kluwer Academic: Boston, Massachusetts/Dordrecht, Netherlands. In Eng.
Trends in intra-urban migration in Scotland are analyzed. The author investigates "the extent of similarities and differences in the characteristics of residential mobility in the four major Scottish cities....The theme of communality and difference is [then] directed towards an assessment of the potential for a general model which recognizes the change of residence as a meaningful human action." The effect of tenure on residential mobility is also examined.

Intercounty migration in England between 1818 and 1839 is analyzed using data on 10,151 men and women who were transported to the penal colony of New South Wales, Australia. "Almost one-third of the workers in the sample moved between counties. The working-class intercounty migrant was young, literate and skilled; the median distance travelled was 59 miles....Estimating a gravity-flow migration model, migration is found to be highly sensitive to intercounty job opportunities and wage rate differentials, but relatively insensitive to distance (which acted as a deterrent to movement). While regional biases existed, the regression results imply that labour market signals were effective in transferring labour from rural to urban locations."

"In this chapter we set out an application of two recently developed methods designed for examining temporal change in the geographic structure of migration systems. We use the methods to explore how streams of migration flow among nine broad regions of the U.S. responded during the first half of the 1980s to a recession that affected, particularly, the oil-dependent economies of states in the West South Central portion of the nation...." The methods applied are a spatial adaptation of the shift-share technique and the causative-matrix approach.

Internal migration in the United Kingdom is analyzed, with a focus on the data available and the state of research. "This [article] has reported some initial exploratory research of compositional and spatial change using census transition and NHSCR [National Health Service Central Register] movement data. Temporal fluctuations in the aggregate level of migration activity have been identified, changes in the age structure of internal migration have been examined, and trends in the spatial pattern of gross migration have been summarized. The analysis suggests that a more detailed and systematic analysis of the level, generation, attraction, and distribution components of internal migration in the U.K. involving more disaggregated sets of spatial units and the application of generalized linear models is now required."

"Migration from the rural Highlands and Islands to the urban Lowlands was a vital element in the demographic and economic experiences of eighteenth- and nineteenth-century Scotland. Both permanent and temporary migration reflected the capitalist transformation of Highland society. Both types increased following failure of the Highland potato crop between 1836 and 1850. This paper examines the patterns of directed labour mobility that characterised one means of relief from destitution following the Highland potato famines."

"Micro level village data [for India] was utilized to test Lee's general theory of migration which states that there is a direct relationship between volume of migration and population heterogeneity. It was observed that while caste, education and occupation have linear relationships to migration, the relationship between economic status and migration is of a fluctuating nature. Of all the variables studied, occupation was found to be the most important factor accounting for migration from the study villages. Thus, the present study which has been based solely on out-migration from the place of origin, shows that Lee's theory is, by and large, acceptable."

H.5. Temporary Migration

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

"This paper examines the problem of guest-worker migration from an economy populated by identical, utility-maximizing individuals with finite working lives. The decision to migrate, the rate of saving while abroad, as well as the length of a migrant's stay in the foreign country, are all viewed as part of a solution to an intertemporal optimization problem. In addition to studying the microeconomic aspects of temporary migration, the paper analyses the determinants of the equilibrium flow of migrants, the corresponding domestic wage, and the level of welfare enjoyed by a typical worker. Effects of an emigration tax are also investigated."

"Prior experience with guestworker programs in Europe and the United States suggests...that temporary labor migration ultimately will engender a flow of immigration substantially in excess of the number of temporary visas originally allocated. In this paper, we outline a theoretical rationale to explain this observation and test it using microdata gathered from former participants in the Bracero Program, a U.S.-sponsored temporary worker program that ran from 1942 to 1964. Our results indicate that bracero migrants were very likely to make repeated trips, both with and without legal documents; that they were quite likely to introduce their sons and daughters into migratory careers; and that they were eventually likely to settle in the United States in substantial numbers. We argue that, in the long run, there is no such thing as a temporary worker program."

Seasonal migration among the elderly in the United States from northern to southern states is examined. "This paper is an initial examination of the impact of this migration on one state, Florida, the state with the highest number of nonpermanent residents enumerated in the 1980 census. Data [are] from the census and from a 1983 survey of Florida counties with census counts of 500 or more nonpermanent residents....The influx of elderly migrants was viewed ambivalently by the counties surveyed. The provision of goods and services to the migrants was considered important to the economic base, but it also caused some problems for the communities. Service overloads were reported and concern was expressed that the state and federal revenue sharing systems in effect at the time were based on a count only of permanent residents. This study is an exploratory one that indicates the need for further research on seasonal migration."

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.

The purpose of this book is to investigate the recent experience of developed countries concerning urban deconcentration. It consists of nine national case studies by various authors that review such trends in light of the literature on conceptual and methodological problems in studying counterurbanization. Two overview chapters are also included. "The first introduces the counterurbanization experience, documenting the 'discovery' of the rural population turnaround and reviewing the statistical evidence relating to the patterns and trends in urban deconcentration for a wide range of international contexts. The second chapter outlines the main research issues which have been raised in the counterurbanization debate, including the vexed question of the real meaning of the term and the way in which the process should be measured. The concluding chapter is designed to draw together the principal findings of the national case studies in order to outline and justify a general model of changes taking place in the degree and nature of counterurbanization."
