"This study, focused on modelling memory effects in migration history data, is [based on] a survey conducted in 1988 by the National Institute for Demographic Studies (I.N.E.D.), in collaboration with the Catholic University of Louvain-la-Neuve (U.C.L., Belgium). This data allows insight into the reliability of responses obtained from an autobiographical retrospective survey, and highlights the demographic characteristics that may interact with memory effects in recall of migration history. In addition, the data obtained from this survey allows response reliability comparisons between gender, and also between joint interviewing of spouses and singular interviewing of spouses." 500 couples living in Wallonie, Belgium, and aged between 41 and 54 years were surveyed.

"In the past decade Tobler has provided an innovative cartographic presentation of migration flows. The central theme of this research has been to utilize detailed migration data to reveal the underlying structures of migration flows. Even though the analyses are not explanatory models of migration exchanges, the application of these techniques to migration flows over time and across different spatial scales provides a visual generalization of often extremely complex flows. The application of his techniques at two spatial scales for the Netherlands illustrates both the strengths and weaknesses of migration force fields for the analysis of migration."

"Net migration of immigrants to U.S. metropolitan areas cannot be measured directly because many immigrants, by some estimates as high as 30%, subsequently emigrate from the U.S., thus escaping the ability of federal authorities to locate their whereabouts. Without an accurate measure of immigrant out-migration, net migration cannot be calculated. This study employs cohort survival techniques to indirectly estimate immigrant and native net migration, 1970-1980, for 119 specific metropolitan areas. Several checks are performed to confirm the accuracy of the estimates, which appear to be reasonable."

The authors develop a model that includes both private and public sustenance organization, then examine its influence on patterns of net migration. "First, a model postulating the influence of private and public sustenance organization on net migration is elaborated, and a method for empirically testing this model is proposed. Second, the model is tested via an analysis of net migration in New York State counties, plus New York City, for the period 1980-1987."

"This paper explores the relationship between wives' and husbands' wages and family migration [in the United States]. Wage variables are constructed to represent potential earnings, quality of wage draw, and potential for wage dispersion. It is found that increased earnings of husbands increases family mobility while increased earnings of wives does the opposite. However, when a sample of couples with wives [earning] at least 25 percent more than their husbands is used, the reverse is true. It is argued that this supports family earnings maximization models of family migration."

"This review of recent research outlines changes in the composition and organization of labor supplies to the Middle East since the 1970s and indicates some effects on both sending and receiving countries. Before the recent Gulf war, Asians increasingly supplanted Arab migrant workers, entering the Gulf labor force through kinship networks, recruitment agencies and project-tied migration. At the national level, this emigration has sometimes led to severe labor shortages, as in Pakistan. Another effect is the impact of remittances on saving and investment behavior. A few detailed studies about countries of origin have provided insights into the push factors of the migration process; however, a major problem limiting research is poor survey and census data."

"The primary objective of this paper is to examine the impact of migration, and ultimately remittances on economic development in an LDC [less-developed country] within the context of a two-sector development model. For this purpose we construct a two-period development model wherein the country loses professional workers in the first period, but receives foreign-exchange remittances in the second period. Then we derive the conditions under which the 'brain drain' phenomenon may promote social welfare gains over the two periods horizon." The results indicate that "emigration of skilled labor causes the real rate of return to capital to fall and the real wage to labor in the home country to rise. Emigration of skilled labor unambiguously causes a real income loss in less developed labor-exporting countries in the first period, but may cause a real income gain to the LDC in the long run. We also find that the per capita income in an LDC may rise as a consequence of emigration in the short-run, but in the long run capita income unambiguously rises."

The changing national composition of the U.S. immigrant population over time is examined, and the relationship between these changes and changes in migration policy is analyzed. The author focuses on state-level differences in the enforcement of federal migration policies and considers how the existence of different sizes of migrant populations from different countries of origin affects local policies and programs aimed at migrant assimilation. The author concludes that, in contrast to the "melting-pot" concept, current U.S. experience involves the development of a continuously adapting multicultural society.

The current situation concerning international migration in Western Europe is reviewed. The author notes that, regardless of attitudes in receiving countries toward immigration, immigrants tend to settle permanently rather than return to their country of origin. As policies designed to limit migration are developed, the communications and transport facilities available to migrants have increased, as have the pressures to migrate. A growing mobility among the most privileged sector of society is also noted.

"This paper deals with the destination decision of political migrants who, in spite of having strong cultural, ideological and religious ties to a particular potential destination, choose to emigrate elsewhere. The model presented characterizes the migrants, who have a choice of two possible destinations, by two properties, skill level and financial resources, and identifies those that move to each destination. The paper examines various immigration-encouraging policies and shows that although all of them will increase immigration, in some cases the economic quality of the new immigrants will rise and in some it will fall. This paper includes general evidence on the present immigration to Israel and some suggestions for empirical tests."

This is one in a series presenting essays by various authors on the relationship between development and international migration. "The authors of the chapters in this volume examine a number of regional and sectoral developments in Mexico and assess how they are related to undocumented migration to the United States. The fundamental premise driving their analyses is that greater regional and sectoral development constitute the best antidote to undocumented migration." The authors "suggest that more can be done to promote the development of the regions of Mexico from which many undocumented migrants depart....The contributors argue that the role of the central government in Mexico City--almost the only major force in setting regional development policy--should be reduced, and that greater authority and resources should be given to state and local governments for their own development."

The authors attempt a critical review and synthesis of research carried out in Mexico and the United States on migration between the two countries. They begin by examining two issues, "the number of Mexican migrants to the United States and the quantity of their monetary remittances to Mexico--and...then suggest that once rhetoric is separated from fact and analysis from opinion, the various estimates are actually relatively consistent." They also undertake a review of studies on communities sending migrants to the United States. "Our review suggests that only a few community factors account for the diversity of conclusions in different case studies: the age of the migration stream; the degree to which productive resources are equitably distributed; the quality of local resources, especially land; the niche in the U.S. industrial structure where the community's migrants first became established; and the geographic, political, and economic position of the community within Mexico."

The influx since 1989 of Jewish immigrants from the Soviet Union to Israel and its impact on the country's spatial distribution are analyzed and compared with a similar mass immigration that took place in the 1950s. The effects of government financial assistance programs, migrants' educational status, and cultural background on migrants' choice of settlement location are assessed.

The final reversal of the White Australia Policy in the 1970s opened the door to substantial increases in Asian immigration, particularly from Vietnam, Malaysia, the Philippines, China, India and Hong Kong." Aspects considered include migrant categories, age, sex, and social and economic adaptation to Australia.

"This paper constructs a dynamic, general equilibrium framework to study the relationship between international labor migration and domestic labor supply. The general equilibrium nature of the model enables us to endogenize the pattern of labor migration. The effect of labor migration on domestic wage rates and labor supply is shown to depend on the pattern of labor migration. If the substitution effect dominates the income effect in labor supply, the domestic supply of labor necessarily decreases in response to an inflow of migrants....Similarly, if the dominant effect is the income effect, the immigration of labor necessarily increases the domestic supply of labor."

The author studies the effect of apprehension by border patrols on remigration for Mexicans attempting to enter the United States illegally. She tests hypotheses "about the effects of apprehension on the actual and desired length of stay in the United States and on the frequency of migration for undocumented Mexican male migrants. Results suggest that...migrants stay in the United States longer on non-apprehended trips and stay in Mexico for shorter spells between trips to compensate for the cost of a past apprehension." Policies of the U.S. Immigration and Naturalization Service concerning apprehension are also evaluated.

"With a view to the...extremely low fertility level of EC [European Community] citizens, the question arises if the replacement level may be balanced by immigration. This would be so with regard to the period under examination till about the mid-21st century, if each year record numbers of immigrants would be admitted, i.e. at least 1 million persons per year. Simulation models have shown that immigration is not a very reasonable solution to the problem of population aging. Instead of an unrealistic alternation of immigration and emigration waves, an increase in the fertility rate of EC citizens would be a better solution to the problem."

In this article, translated from the original French, the author attempts to clarify official French definitions of foreigners, immigrants, and French citizens of foreign origin. He suggests that much of the recent political debate that has occurred in France on the subject of immigration has been muddied by confusion among both politicians and journalists about the actual facts concerning immigration levels, which have remained steady over the past decade.

"Migration flows in the integrated Nordic labor market are heavily dominated by Finnish migration to Sweden. Differences in migration behavior across the Nordic populations are identified. Elasticities of migration are obtained from a logistic human capital model estimated as seemingly unrelated regressions. Differences in migration behavior are shown to exist, but the elasticities are not systematically higher for the Finns as could be expected. The domination of Finnish migration to Sweden is instead explained by real wage differences and since these have narrowed, major migration flows should not be expected in the future, unless large differences in labor market performance arise."

The results suggest that "savings and remittances of migrants can be well explained by remigration plans and economic as well as demographic variables. However, the planned future duration of residence in Germany has a negative and significant effect only on remittances."

The impact of the Iraqi invasion of Kuwait on international labor migration in the Gulf region is assessed. The author notes that there were seven to eight million labor migrants of mainly Arab origin in the region prior to the war, but the proportion of migrants from other Asian countries has increased substantially in the postwar period. The effect on sending countries is noted. The author concludes that labor migration from Egypt, Syria, and other Asian countries is likely to increase, since Yemeni, Jordanian, and Palestinian workers are no longer welcome in many Arab countries.

The linkages between international migration and the development of countries of migrant origin are explored in this study, which consists of 12 papers by various authors. Following a chapter on conceptual and theoretical issues, chapters examine labor migration from Africa; Greece and Turkey; Asia; and Latin America, Mexico, and the Caribbean. "The clearest lesson to emerge from the case studies in this book is that international migration for employment, whether officially organized or self-motivated but facilitated by ethnic networks, is not a short-cut to effective development--notwithstanding often substantial remittances. Instead, such migration often distorts a country's development in ways that guarantee continued migration pressures."

The author reviews the literature on the trends and characteristics of international migration within and from East and Southeast Asia, with a focus on the past 25 years. "Five migration systems are described: settler, student, contract labor, skilled labor, and refugee. Settler migration to the U.S., Canada and Australia has consisted primarily of family members....Contract labor migration, particularly to the Middle East, has provided jobs, foreign currency through remittances and greater participation of women, but also led to illegal migration, skills drain, and labor abuses. The hierarchy of development has led to intra-regional flows: (1) skilled labor mainly from Japan to other countries in the region, and (2) contract labor and illegal migration from the LDCs to the NIEs [newly industrializing economies] and Japan."

International migration trends associated with the oil boom and bust that occurred in Nigeria between 1976 and 1986 are analyzed. "Large numbers came from Ghana..., [and] Niger, Chad and Togo, whose countries were suffering from a mixture of drought, political instability and stagnant economies. The resultant labour market became segmented according to job skills, nationality and ethnicity...." The decline in the oil industry led to the expulsion of some two million aliens between 1983 and 1986, causing considerable friction between Nigeria and its neighbors. The author concludes that "the rise and fall of migrant labour in Nigeria and the political situation within the country were embedded in the changing regional political economy of West Africa and its linkages to the larger world capitalist economy."

"The purpose of this paper is to study the determinants of interstate migration in the United States from 1965-1970 when a new change in direction of migration has started, and to examine the flow creation or flow diversion that results from migration to some appealing regions. Several related variables have been selected and tested for gross interstate migration flows. The results show that overall both push and pull factors have not been important....Distance was not found to act as a significant deterrence to migration, whereas population density of origin and destination was significant. Previous migration was found to have a very strong effect on migration. The results of the study also suggested that there has been a major change in the location of growth areas in the United States during 1955-1970."

The benefits of migration for the rural areas lie mainly in returned migrants' contributions to the economic development of those areas."

The mismatch between labor supply and demand in Spain between 1962 and 1986 is analyzed, with particular attention given to the impact of high rates of unemployment on internal migration. Data are from official Spanish sources. The authors develop an econometric system modeling internal migration flows and regional wage differentials. "We find, on the one hand, that interregional migration responds significantly to economic variables such as real wage and unemployment differentials, but with a relative small value and also with long lags. On the other hand, the overall unemployment rate and housing price differentials are also found to deter migration."

"Changes in provincial age structures due to elderly and non-elderly interprovincial migration in Canada were examined for the 1981-86 migration interval. Although elderly and non-elderly migration patterns diverged, non-elderly migration continued to be a better predictor of changes in provincial population age structures than did elderly migration. The rate of change in provincial elderly populations was found to be significantly correlated with net non-elderly migration rates." Data are from official sources.

"This report provides detailed statistics on the geographical mobility of Americans for the three 12-month periods between March 1987 and March 1990. The data were collected in the March Current Population Surveys of 1988, 1989, and 1990. Mobility status is determined by asking respondents if they were living in the same residence (house or apartment) one year earlier; for persons who changed residence, additional questions are asked to identify county and city of residence one year earlier." Many of these data are presented separately by race and Hispanic origin, age, sex, and income.

"This paper uses data from the OPCS [Office of Population Censuses and Surveys] Longitudinal Study and the National Health Service Central Register to examine the contention that the South East region of England acts as a kind of 'upward social class escalator' within the British urban and regional system. To establish that this is so it is shown firstly, that the South East attracts to itself through inter-regional migration a more than proportional share of the potentially upwardly mobile young adults; secondly, that it promotes these young people along with its own young adults at rates which are higher than elsewhere in the country; and finally, that a significant proportion of those who achieve these higher levels of status and pay then 'step off' the escalator. They do this by migrating away from the South East at later stages of their working lives and at or near to retirement."

"A stochastic framework for the modelling of interurban migration is presented. The model is an extension of a recently developed master-equation approach to interregional migration. The population dynamics of the French urban system, described by a set of 78 cities, is investigated within the period 1954-82. The importance of synergy effects (self-reinforcing collective effects) as well as socioeconomic macrovariables for the understanding of urban dynamics becomes obvious. A forecasting of urban dynamics...[up to the year 2002 confirms] this result and [gives] further insight into the nested structure of urban systems."

"This paper investigates individual intermunicipal migration behaviour in Canada within the context of a human capital model that adjusts for the migrant's selectivity in computing expected income gains. In addition to the typical regional determinants of migration, housing and labour market characteristics are found to influence intermunicipal migration significantly, the effects differing with age. Structural coefficients remained more or less stable during the decade 1971-1981. It is shown that the failure to adjust income gains for selectivity bias results in an underestimation of the migration-impacts of income gains and municipal-specific factors."

The authors extend the use of a hiring function model, whereby job seekers are matched with vacancies, to the analysis of regional migration in Britain. Annual data from the National Health Service Central Register for 1975-1989 are used to "show that unemployment and vacancy rates, distance and an index of similarities across regions in industry based employment composition help determine migration flows across regions. The hiring function approach offers a consistent way of modelling gross and net flows, and helps explain both the high level of gross relative to net flows and the tendency for migration to fall in a recession even when unemployment differentials widen."

Next, Maoist experiments with regional population redistribution are discussed, as well as the special characteristics of Chinese migration behavior under a strong state intervention system. Finally, mainland China's overall success in reducing regional inequality is assessed. The empirical findings of this study are then formulated into four theoretical generalizations, providing some preliminary corollaries to the state theory of urban growth."

"Inter-regional net migration rates for Bangladesh have been estimated using the available data set from the 1974 and 1981 census reports. A multiple regression model of internal migration in Bangladesh has failed to support the argument that internal migratory flows are determined by high population density. The development of the agrarian social structure of this country is rooted in the historical evolution of the land tenure system. The analysis indicates support for the argument that the unequal hierarchical relations of the people to the land in Bangladesh condition the process by which migration takes place."

"This paper argues that the changing age composition of the nation's population has contributed significantly to recent major shifts in U.S. interregional migration. During the 1970s, the large baby-boom generation came of age, and the net outflow of population from the Northeast and Midwest regions to the South and West regions increased precipitously, with net migration between these regions reaching a level in 1975-80 approximately three times greater than in 1955-60 or 1965-70. To clarify the different ways that age-composition change has influenced such recent trends, three hypotheses are explored using a spatial shift-share decomposition model."

The analysis includes migration between rural and urban areas as well as migration among voivodships. Factors affecting migration include changes in the age distribution; however, the authors conclude that changes in migration patterns are primarily due to socioeconomic factors, particularly the economic crises the country has faced in recent years.

"The author proposes an indirect method for estimating trends in historical migration rates, based on data commonly available from a single census. The method exploits the logical relationship between cohorts' lifetime and single-period transition probabilities, by comparing observed lifetime migration probabilities with those expected under various parametric time trends in period migration rates. In tests with figures from Brazil's Census of 1980, the proposed method performs very well. It identifies all major trends in twentieth-century Brazilian interregional migration. When combined with rough estimates of past populations at risk of migration, it yields estimates of historical migration flows which are quantitatively similar to estimates from standard multiple-census methods. In addition, because the new method permits estimation of gross (rather than only net) historical flows, it leads to insights about past migration which are not possible with standard methods."

The effect of internal migration on population aging in Poland is assessed, using data for the years 1950-1988. Trends are presented for the country as a whole, by individual voivodship, and for rural regions that have experienced rapid depopulation. The authors conclude that "internal migrations have no direct influence on the population's ageing process, and [are] insignificant. The influence grows in the spatial perspective; it becomes strongest in the case of migrations between urban and rural areas. Its intensity is best revealed in the...depopulation in rural areas."

Changes in internal migration patterns in China since the beginning of the 1980s are analyzed. The emphasis is on how the economic reforms of the 1970s have affected migration, which used to be governed primarily by political considerations. "Though the old barriers restricting rural-urban migration, especially the household-registration system, are still valid, cities nevertheless suffer from migration-pressure, caused by the agricultural reforms and the continuing economic disparities between city and country. Migrants into cities and towns, still registered as rural inhabitants, are called 'floating population'. Quite a big number (about 15 million people) already have been staying in the cities for more than one year. The drawbacks and advantages for the cities of these mobile population groups are discussed in detail."

"By examining the 1979 [U.S.] income status of 1975-1980 inmigrants, outmigrants, and nonmigrants, we gauged the income effects of migration for a group of chronic low-income counties in the nonmetropolitan South. The effects are demonstrated to be positive for the migrants themselves and negative for the low-income counties. In both instances, however, the effects are unexpectedly small. By considering both in- and outmigrants, we show that these counties experienced a remarkable degree of income replacement and also present evidence that the results are not primarily due to the particular migration period under study. The findings give additional evidence of the substantial inefficiency at work in American migration patterns."

The author explores the reasons for the failure of a plan for population exchanges that took place between Jews and Arabs in Palestine in the 1930s. Special focus is given to the success of previous exchanges between Greece and Turkey that took place during the 1920s and why this model failed in Palestine. The author concludes that "the Zionist plans which assumed that one could encourage voluntary transfer by creating attractive economic conditions in the target areas, did not take into account the factors of nationalism, ties to place of residence, religion, etc. These factors carried no less weight than the economic factor and they could effectively prevent any voluntary transfer of the Arab population."

Rather, they emigrated temporarily to the United States to make money in order to buy land in Italy. The book documents the flow back to Italy of individuals and remittances and discusses the strategies used by returnees in investing American savings."

Data from the 1980 U.S. census are examined for regional patterns in characteristics among return migrants. "We examined return migrants age 60+ and argue that...they fall into two primary types of movers: provincial return migrants and counterstream return migrants. When profiled as a whole...return migrants are older and more residentially dependent than nonreturn migrants....Provincial return migration seems strongest in the South...and counterstream return migration seems strongest in the Northeast. Conceivably it is not a return to one's state of birth that is at issue among counterstream migrants, but rather a return from a Sunbelt retirement move to an earlier place of residence, regardless of whether one was born there." Ethnic differences among migrants are considered.

"Based on survey data on 1,400 rural migrants in Delhi, this paper examines within a multivariate context the determinants of migrating with a pre-arranged job and of the initial duration of urban unemployment. The results show that the probability of moving with a pre-arranged job increases with education and with age, and is higher for those who seek non-manual jobs. For migrants who arrive in the city without a pre-arranged job, unemployment duration depends on marital status, premigration information on urban employment opportunities, and on the reliance on contacts for job search."

"In this paper, the author analyzes the evolution of migration to Mexico City based on information generated by the National Survey on Migration to Urban Areas....The findings support the hypothesis that there has been a decrease in the intensity of in-migration towards capital. The rural origin of the migrants prevails; the majority of these are young people coming from the states closest to the city, with low levels of schooling. An increase is observed in out-migration from Mexico City to other major cities in the country...."

"The study of the rural-urban migration of three Sudanese ethnic groups, the Nuba, the Zaghawa and the Hadandawa, has shown that the different cultural and socio-economic conditions in their homelands have decisive influence on their readiness to migrate, the migratory processes and the behaviour patterns connected with their migration."

"In this paper, an individual model of rural-urban migration is studied, emphasizing the effects of information flow and urban wage dispersion. Migration is viewed in the context of a lifetime program of job search. It is shown that migration can occur even when the mean urban wage is no larger than the rural income flow....Both the shape and spread of the urban wage dispersion are shown to affect migration behavior significantly." The geographical focus is on developing countries.
