H. Migration

Studies that treat quantitative data on migration analytically. Methodological studies concerned primarily with migration are coded in this division and cross-referenced to N. Methods of Research and Analysis Including Models , as appropriate. Includes some consideration of policy aspects, but studies relating primarily to policies designed to affect migration are coded under M.3. Measures Affecting Migration .

H.1. General Migration

Studies that concern both international and internal migration.

This collective work is a product of a conference on migration in Africa. The conference was held in Kristiansand, Norway, in September 1991. "Broadly speaking, the contributions in this book are organized around four main concerns. These are: (a) the preoccupation with conceptual and methodological questions; (b) the presentation of broad overviews of current work and findings on the subject both at the regional and subregional levels; (c) the discussions of the wide range of migration experiences; and (d) a focus on gender issues both as a methodological and substantive concern."

62:30435 Champion, Tony. Population review: (3) Migration to, from and within the United Kingdom. Population Trends, No. 83, Spring 1996. 5-16 pp. London, England. In Eng.
This is the third article in a planned series reviewing the changing composition of the British population. "Monitoring migration trends and patterns is not a straightforward task given the absence of a compulsory United Kingdom-wide system for recording domestic changes of address. Nevertheless, data extracted from the available sources offer a valuable insight into the diverse and complex phenomenon of migration. This article examines international and internal migration...in the 1980s and 1990s, and looks at the geographical impact of the two in combination on the population of the United Kingdom."

This is an analysis of migration patterns during the colonial period in the upper Senegal valley, now part of Senegal, Mali, and Mauritania. The author notes that, in addition to labor migration out of this region, there was a considerable level of migration within the region for a variety of economic, environmental, and political reasons.

Migration, and emigration in particular, is a major demographic factor in Northern Ireland. Previous studies examining the effects of migration on Northern Ireland from 1971-1991 have come to differing conclusions concerning the numbers of Protestant versus Catholic emigrants. Following a critique of previous studies, the author sets out to construct more precise estimates of Catholic and Protestant emigration between 1971 and 1991, taking into account factors such as undeclared religious affiliation and differing mortality levels. He concludes that since 1968, slightly more Protestants than Catholics have been emigrating from Northern Ireland, a reversal of previous patterns.

"This review presents a probabilistic formulation of the decision making process, leading to a rigorous treatment of migration behaviour for projection purposes....Aggregate-level models may be applied to migration flows for which the objectively measured characteristics of areas of department and destination act as subjectively measured characteristics and stimuli....Individual-level models use event history methods of analysis to introduce a great variety of characteristics of the subject on the decision to move. They lead to projections using microsimulation models. A further step is taken in integrating macro- and microbehavioural models. The use of aggregate and individual characteristics simultaneously leads to more efficient and sophisticated projection models: the factors affecting behaviour at the micro-level cannot be inferred from aggregate studies and conversely."

The author discusses emigration dynamics in Sub-Saharan Africa, with a focus on "interactions between the demographic, economic, ecological, political, and socio-cultural dimensions....The economic block in this article outlines relevant aspects such as income per capita, taken as a function of economic development, income distribution and the resource base of an economy as important elements that influence emigration dynamics. The demographic block focuses on population size, growth rate, distribution and the stage of demographic transition. The political block emphasizes issues relating to democratization and human rights, while the socio-cultural block outlines the ever pervasive notion of ethnicity, norms and value systems that impact intricately on migration dynamics and decision-making processes."

In Spa. with sum. in Eng.
"A bibliographical review serves to analyze the role of urban growth in patterns of international labor-force migration, as well as the effect of this migration on the development of the countries of origin, especially on their cities. While the review confirms the general idea that international migrants are either peasants or highly qualified personnel, it also shows that qualified workers are increasingly involved in international labor movements and that a great part of them come from large cities. It is to be expected that in these circumstances large cities of the countries of origin will become more integrated to international migratory systems."

"A number of hypotheses concerning remittances from foreign emigrants are developed and tested using questionnaire survey data from Lala, a Lebanese village. According to the theory, a rural family engages in an implicit insurance-type contract with the potential migrant because both are averse to risk....Results from testing the hypotheses are somewhat consistent with the proposition that, after a period of adjustment, migrants do begin to remit, thereby providing their families with an insurance against the uncertainties of life in the country of origin. However, the level of remittances does not appear to depend on the potential to inherit from a family's wealth. Moreover, families do not seem to invest in their migrants so as to improve their farm lands and to undertake risky agricultural techniques. The long-term remittance commitment of migrants to their residual families suggests that migrants' altruism may be a more significant motivating factor than self-interest."

"Pakistan has had substantial experience of overseas migration and is counted among the world's leading manpower exporting countries....At the individual level, migration overseas is a mixed experience bringing prosperity to the family but also affecting both the family and the migrant during prolonged periods of separation. At the macro level, overseas migration is viewed as generally positive, generating substantial foreign exchange for government and relieving some unemployment pressure. In the process, however, Pakistan has come to depend on a few countries to regularly absorb the bulk of its migrant labour. The political consequences of such dependencies could be disastrous, as Yemen learned in the wake of the Gulf crisis in 1990. Further, as shown by recession in the mid-1980s, overseas migration is a fragile and unpredictable phenomenon and cannot form the basis of a longer term policy for development."

"Highly skilled professional and managerial labour migration has become an important facet of the contemporary world economy. The operations of transnational corporations have created more opportunities for skilled migrants to work abroad....There is a growing interest amongst economic geographers to examine this form of migration through an appreciation of global economic restructuring, labour market change and world cities. Consequently, this paper introduces a new conceptual framework...[which] is based on the rationale that world cities, and the patterns of labour market demand that exist within them, are of paramount importance in influencing highly skilled professional and managerial labour migration within the world economy. The author uses an example of highly skilled labour migration within the transnational banking sector [in London] to illustrate this new conceptual framework."

"This paper uses the 1970, 1980, and 1990 Public Use Samples of the U.S. Census to document what happened to immigrant earnings in the 1980s, and to determine if pre-1980 immigrant flows reached earnings parity with natives. The relative entry wage of successive immigrant cohorts declined by 9 percent in the 1970s, and by an additional 6 percent in the 1990s. Although the relative wage of immigrants grows by 10 percent during the first two decades after arrival, the relative wage of post-1970 immigrants will remain 15 to 20 percent below those of natives throughout much of their working lives."

"This paper documents the extent to which immigrants [in the United States over the past 30 years] participate in the many programs that make up the welfare state. The immigrant-native difference in the probability of receiving cash benefits is small, but the gap widens once other programs are included in the analysis: 21 percent of immigrant households receive some type of assistance, as compared with only 14 percent of native households. The types of benefits received by earlier immigrants influence the types of benefits received by newly arrived immigrants. Hence there might be ethnic networks that transmit information about the availability of particular benefits to new immigrants."

By 1990, immigrant households received a disproportionately high share of the cash benefits distributed in the United States."

The history of female migration from Bechuanaland (modern Botswana) to South Africa is explored. The paper "challenges some pervasive assumptions and misconceptions in the regional literature on migrant labour and agrarian transformation. It rejects the depiction of women as simply passive victims of the migrant labour system, and instead stresses Tswana women's migration strategies, motives, and agency. It challenges the common assumption that women passively waited behind, then followed their husbands to towns....[It] argues that the first period of Tswana women's migration stretched from 1850 to 1930, characterized by various social and economic causes, slowly accelerating volumes, return movements, and predominantly rural western Transvaal destinations. It goes on to distinguish three overlapping spatial patterns--short-distance movements, migration streams, and step migrations--which corresponded to particular categories of female migrants with very specific reasons for migrating."

"The theoretical and empirical literature generally regards international migration as producing a cycle of dependency and stunted development in sending communities. Most migrants' earnings are spent on consumption; few funds are channeled into productive investment. We argue that this view is misleading because it ignores the conditions under which productive investment is likely to be possible and profitable. We analyze the determinants of migrants' savings and remittance decisions, using variables defined at the individual, household, community, and macroeconomic levels. We identify the conditions under which U.S. earnings are repatriated to Mexico as remittances and savings, and indicate the factors leading to their productive investment."

"The purpose of this paper has been to outline a theoretical framework for the explanation of the circulation of Puerto Rican women that brings gender relations to the fore, but frames the island-mainland pattern of mobility in the context of core-periphery capitalist relations. We have argued that gender relations in the home and workplace are vitally important for understanding women's moves to the [United States] and return trips to Puerto Rico. Specifically, we posited that most Puerto Rican women move as tied-migrants or because of their obligation or desire to meet gender responsibilities. In addition, we also viewed migration as an action with the potential to modify gender relations and alter future migration decision-making, as women gain experience in the labour market and exposure to new social and cultural environments."

"This article aims to contribute to an understanding of contemporary American attitudes toward immigration....The paper uses data from a CBS News/New York Times poll conducted in June 1993. Respondents were asked whether they would like to see the level of immigration to the United States increased, decreased or kept the same. We test several hypotheses about factors influencing respondents' attitudes, including the importance of previously unexamined predictors. These new hypotheses relate to views about the health of the U.S. economy, feelings of social and political alienation, and isolationist sentiments concerning international economic issues and foreign relations. One important discovery is the close connection between possessing restrictionist immigration attitudes and having an isolationist perspective along a broader array of international issues."

"This paper analyzes the economic impact of temporary and unskilled migrant workers in Japan, who are illegal according to the current Japanese immigration law but who have been dramatically increasing in recent years. The analysis, using a simple CGE model, reveals the quadruple impact of the admission of migrant workers on the welfare of the host country which has often been neglected in the orthodox theory: (i) cheaper foreign labor effect; (ii) trade barrier effect; (iii) nontradable income effect; and (iv) nontradable consumption effect. Moreover, it is shown that, if Japan is to benefit from admitting foreign labor, the scale of admission should be large and the admission should be accompanied by trade liberalization."

"During the colonial period under British rule, South Asia provided a significant supply of migrant labour to the colonies. The global economy under the colonial system created an international labour market in which persons in the workforces of colonies at relatively higher levels of development found economic opportunities in less developed colonies which did not have an adequate supply of literate and educated manpower. Compared with India, Sri Lanka participated in migration to the colonies on a very limited scale and mainly to one destination (Malaysia--then the Federated Malay States) by one ethnic group (the Sri Lanka Tamil community). Immediately after independence, members of the small community descended from Portuguese and Dutch settlers emigrated to Australia, and in the 1960s many Sri Lankans settled in the U.K., U.S., Canada, Australia and New Zealand."

This study reviews current data and trends in immigration in the United States. It attempts to demonstrate how social science findings can help the informed citizen make rational choices about future immigration legislation designed to influence those trends. The author begins by identifying five classes of values that could be affected by immigration. They are "(1) the standard of living in the United States, (2) equity, (3) the preservation or modification of existing American culture, (4) ethnic and class conflict, and (5) the power of the United States in international affairs." Next, he discusses how social science findings can influence policy decisions. This is followed by a history of U.S. immigration law and a discussion of recent patterns of international migration affecting the United States. The determinants of immigration are then analyzed, and the author examines the means by which immigration laws can be enforced. The book concludes with some proposals for changes in immigration laws.

"The concept of cultural pluralism, which assumes that immigrants can integrate into the dominant host society without surrendering their own cultural identity, has been advocated in New Zealand since the Immigration Policy Review in 1986. This paper investigates the change in cultural identity among Hong Kong Chinese adolescents entering New Zealand between 1987 and 1992. The analysis shows that integration is a more preferred adaptation than is assimilation. However, half of the adolescents under study still identified as either predominantly Chinese or even culturally marginalised at four years after migration. The need to enhance the social integration of new Chinese immigrants into New Zealand's increasingly multicultural society is discussed...."

This study examines factors that shape migration and settlement of undocumented Mexican immigrants in a northern Californian community. The data are from in-depth interviews with 44 individuals from 26 families. The interviews were conducted over an 18-month period from 1986 to 1988. Chapter 1 reviews the relevant literature and Chapter 2 provides a historical overview. Chapter 3 describes the barrio in which the research was undertaken. "Chapter 4 focuses on how gender relations in families and social networks shape diverse migration patterns for women and men....Chapter 5 examines how immigrant women and men in the U.S. reconstitute gender relations. Immigration and resettlement patterns tend to weaken familial patriarchy, as indicated by changes in the gender division of household labor, decision-making power within the family, and women's and men's spatial mobility....Chapter 6 examines how women engage in activities--employment, securing public and private forms of assistance for their families, and building a social nexus of community--that ultimately serve to consolidate family settlement."

Using two strategies for deriving predictions, known as the micromodel and macromodel strategies, we obtain a variety of theoretical results for the three types of actors in migration situations--the migrant, others in the origin country, and others in the destination country--for bilateral relations between origin and destination countries, and for the effects of the societal valued goods and the income distribution and its inequality on the differential propensity to emigrate among rich and poor."

This article offers a historical explanation for current negative perceptions of immigration. The author notes that even at a time when immigration to the countries of the European Community is relatively low and stable, there is a continuing outcry among many politicians, the media, and certain experts, including some demographers, regarding the dangers of immigration. He suggests that such fears are not supported by the facts, and that they stem from historical attitudes toward the movement of people. Such attitudes classified emigration as colonization, or as a spreading of the values of civilization to the less fortunate. Within this rhetorical framework, immigration was perceived as an invasion of the national territory by foreigners.

"This paper discusses several themes that are useful in organizing research on women, migration, and work, and consists of four parts. It begins with a review of types of migration systems and highlights the importance of specifying migration systems when examining women migrants and work. The main theoretical approaches in migration and labor are discussed in the second part of the paper. This is followed by a section on several dimensions critical for research on women migrants. In particular, it shows that the effects of gender, race and ethnicity, social class, cohort, and history should be explicitly considered because the migration and labor market experiences of women migrants profoundly differ from that of men. The paper concludes with a discussion of some research and policy implications."

This paper describes the characteristics of Asian female labor migration, examines policy dimensions and suggests action to bridge the gaps between policy dimensions and implementation."

"The [U.S.] Congress and the Administration are currently proposing to revamp the nation's welfare system. As a result, increasing attention has focused on the participation of legal immigrants in welfare programs.

Several members of Congress have offered proposals that would eliminate or at least seriously curtail the eligibility of legal immigrants for welfare benefits. This paper analyzes the participation rates of legal immigrants in major welfare programs as well as several such proposals."

"This paper examines the effect of family indicators on migration from, and return migration to, Puerto Rico among women in the 1980s. It appears that women use migration to gain independence as single women and mothers since unmarried women were more likely to migrate from Puerto Rico than married women. On the other hand, we see evidence of a traditional route in which women follow men in the migration stream since women recently married were more likely to migrate from, and return to, Puerto Rico. Women married for longer periods of time are the least likely to migrate. Finally, it appears that women use migration to counter limited marriage opportunities in Puerto Rico since unmarried women were less likely to return there and since there were more changes in marital status after women migrated to New York than after returning to Puerto Rico."

"Just like any trade activity in well-functioning markets, migration tends to enhance the efficiency of the allocation of resources. With non-distortionary income distribution policy instruments which can compensate losers, migration generates income gains. But the gains tend to be typically rather small. However, when the labor market is malfunctioning and wages are rigid, migration exacerbates imperfections in the market. Consequently, it may lead to losses to the established population which can be quite sizable."

This monograph uses data from a variety of sources to analyze the impact of the political changes in Albania on population trends, and particularly on migration. The author notes that the surge of emigration that occurred in 1991 has resulted in the presence of many Albanians in Italy. Due to the lack of relevant data, however, it is difficult to estimate their exact numbers, both in Italy and in other countries of destination. Results from a survey of the living conditions of Albanian migrants in Italy are also presented. These show a continuing flow of in- and out-migration between Italy and Albania that is associated with economic difficulties in Albania.

"Good data show that in the 1970s immigrants to the United States contributed more to the public coffers than they received in public services. The data, displayed here in fuller detail than in an earlier article in this journal, confirm the conclusion set forth by the author more than a decade earlier. This conclusion is corroborated by Canadian studies for the 1980s and 1990s and by the crude U.S. data available for the most recent period. Any excess in welfare expenditures on immigrants relative to natives is probably limited to the narrowly defined category of welfare payments, which are relatively insignificant compared to expenditures on schooling and social security, and probably occurs only among older immigrants."

This study concerns current immigration to the United States. It particularly discusses the implications of large-scale Hispanic immigration, primarily from Mexico. This migration is analyzed in the context of the history of immigration to the United States in general and in the framework of the evolution of public policy concerning immigrants. The author considers both the similarities with past migrations and the special features that are present in the current socioeconomic conditions in the United States. The author also reviews the evidence regarding the economic impact of immigration and offers recommendations for changes in policy, including a tax on immigrants. The main conclusion of the study is that emphasis should be placed not on the control of entry, but on assimilating those immigrants who succeed in reaching the United States into the economy and the social life of the country.

Immigration trends in France for the years 1993 and 1994 are analyzed using data from the Office de Migrations Internationales and the Office pour la Protection des Réfugiés et Apatrides. Specific attention is given to family migration, requests for asylum, and the relationship between marriage and immigration, using data from the survey on geographic mobility and social integration carried out in 1992 by INED. The data on married and unmarried immigrants are analyzed separately.

"This paper aims to contribute to the development of an analytical framework that provides the space for the understanding of female migrants as reproductive workers in a cross-national transfer of labor. It will first provide some hypothetical guidelines for the explanation of female migration in the context of reproductive labor. Based on accessible data, a discussion on the case of Japan will be presented to highlight the main issues and problems concerning female migrants as reproductive workers. Finally, implications on policy-making and networking at the international and national level will be analyzed and discussed, taking into account the specific ideological, political and socioeconomic constraints."

"In this paper I provide a conceptualization of international migration networks, which can be used to identify and integrate the internal components of migration systems, and formalize the relationships in an analytic model of the internal network dynamic. With the use of the operationalized model, and microlevel and macrolevel data for guestworkers in Germany during the period 1970 to 1989, we can empirically test the relative influence of internal network variables versus external forces on the attraction of immigrants over time. The empirical results suggest that--as the system matures--network variables have an increasing impact on the attraction of immigrants, while the impact of economic factors declines. The research is concluded with a series of simulations that further highlight the internal dynamic of international migration systems."

"Today, the long distance migration in Sweden has slowed down. A transition from a society with high flows of long distance migration to a society with low flows has taken place during the past decades. This phenomenon, which is largely unknown to a wider audience, is analysed in this paper. We argue that the main reason for the new migration transition is that people find it easier to find jobs in traditional outmigration areas mainly because of the expansion of the public sector and increased public transfers, but also as a result of changes in the age composition of the population. First, we analyse the structural transformation of the Swedish economy and its regional patterns. Secondly, the regional migration is analysed. Finally we discuss the factors behind the new migration transition."

"We study a dynamic model of labor migration in which moving costs decrease with the number of migrants already settled in the destination. This assumption is supported by sociological studies of migrant networks. With endogenous moving costs migration occurs gradually over time. Once it starts, it develops momentum, and migratory flows may increase even as wage differentials narrow. In addition, migration tends to follow geographical channels, and low-moving-cost individuals migrate first. These patterns are consistent with historical evidence from the Great Black Migration of 1915-1960 [in the United States], much of which cannot be reconciled with existing migration models."

"This paper is an analysis of the postdiagnosis mobility of people diagnosed with AIDS (acquired immunodeficiency syndrome) in Florida. I infer intrastate mobility by comparing the county of diagnosis on an individual's AIDS case report with that on the matched death certificate; this allows the measurement of migration within the state of Florida for 4,393 people through October, 1989--46% of the total cases by that time. Out-migration rates in rural counties are very high, approximately 50%, whereas those in large metropolitan counties are less than 10%; however, these rates depend on race. The data show that migrants moved to places with concentrations of health-care facilities, and that there is a flow of migrants from rural to urban places, particularly to large metropolitan areas. The results suggest that the spatial distribution of people with AIDS changes in the period after diagnosis, becoming more concentrated in places where there are good health-care facilities."

"This article presents newly-available migration data from the 1990 U.S. census to assess immigration and internal migration components as they affect state poverty populations. New immigrant waves are heavily focused on only a few `port-of-entry' states. It is suggested that these immigrants have begun to impact upon internal migration into and out of these `high immigration states', and have also altered the national system of internal migration patterns. This article addresses three questions: How do the magnitudes of poverty population out-migration from high immigration states compare with those of other states? Is this out-migration selective on particular social and demographic groups? Is immigration a significant determinant of internal migration of the poor population? The results of this analysis are consistent with the view that recent, focused immigration is associated with out-migration among a state's poor longer-term residents."

An attempt is made to review migration trends in the United States over the past 30 years. The emphasis is on changes in migration patterns between metropolitan and nonmetropolitan areas. "Annual net migration estimates are examined, considering the changing metropolitan-nonmetropolitan differential, and differences across geographic and functional county types in nonmetropolitan areas. Some differences stand out across the 24-year period, but the most notable finding is the widespread nature of the turnaround, the reversal, and the current recovery. There are differences between the present and the 1970s, but a trend toward greater retention and/or acquisition of people in rural and small town areas is clear."

"Based on the data on 11,470 household heads and spouses in a national survey [in Japan], this paper studies the selective effects of marriage migrations on five types of prefectures: (1) metropolitan core, (2) suburban, (3) regional growth pole, (4) peripheral non-kaso, and (5) peripheral kaso prefectures. The selective effects are examined in terms of five personal factors: sex, nativity, education, period of marriage, and sibling status....Primary and onward migrations were much more important than return migrations so that marriage migrations increased the non-native's share of the population of every type of [prefecture]. Marriage migrations resulted in further deterioration of the quality of human capital in peripheral prefectures. The transition from high to moderate economic growth in the early 1970s was accompanied by sharp reversals in the net transfers of marriage migrants in metropolitan cores and regional growth poles in opposite directions."

"When considering where migration research interests may proceed, this article suggests much could be gained by considering theories of human motivation which, in the field of social psychology, represents a theoretical progression from the behavioural and cognitive approaches. The article suggests that combining theories of human motivation with the developing understanding of cultural influences may provide linkages between, on the one hand, the personal realm of migration and, on the other, the regional institutional framework of politicoeconomic structure within which people make their decisions....The focus is on the migrant who remains within the same broad cultural context (such as within the same nation or ethnic group), but travels away from the confines of the general area in which he or she previously resided. Thus a person undertaking intraurban relocation is not regarded here as a `migrant', and the schema proposed will probably not apply to international migration."

"Estimated returns to migration based on comparison of individual migrants may be biased owing to self-selection in the migration process. Using data derived from the 1986 Canadian census, I will study the effects of expected wage differentials in determining the return or onward migration decision of nonnative adults aged 20 to 64 years. Evidence was found that return migrations were in the `right' direction, as they are observed to respond to provincial economic variables (that is, average employment growth and income levels) in a rational manner. After accounting for self-selectivity, I found that...return migrants...are negatively selected, and experience lower income levels, following the return migration, than onward migrants would have, had they chosen the return migration option. This drop in expected wages decreases the propensity associated with making a return migration. Despite this drop in income, the large proportion selecting the return migration option suggests the importance of the province of birth in the mental map of nonnative migrants."

Evidence is drawn from the 1991...census and from a representative sample of elderly people in SE England. The sources demonstrate the continued elaboration of long-distance, metropolitan-decentralizing migrations around the age of retirement. Also shown are relatively high rates of residential mobility among people in their seventies and eighties. Most of their migrations are short distance, but nonetheless with a net redistributional effect that sustains urban decentralization at the oldest ages. There is no evidence of significant return migration to London at advanced ages. From the survey responses, distinctive housing dissatisfactions are identified in early and late retirement, but neither set exactly matches expressed motivations for moves."

"The paper puts together and comments on available statistical data on the resettlement of Germans out of the area of today's Czech Republic after the year 1945. Available are only data of the then American and Soviet occupation administration in Germany and Czechoslovak statistics about food rations for Germans. These sources reveal that approximately 2.7 million Germans were removed out of the Republic in the period of 1945-1947 in the framework of organized resettlement."

This book contains nine studies by different authors on aspects of the population displacement that has occurred in Sudan over the past decade as a consequence of the ongoing civil war being waged in the country. It also "effectively documents the devastation that Sudan has experienced as a result of chronic civil war and natural disaster. The economic drain on the country as a result of the war represents a tremendous loss of precious potential development capital. And the loss in human terms is almost incalculable: the casualties of war; the children without families and without hope of education; the displacement of rural farmers and pastoralists and the disruption or destruction of their economy; the reduction in productivity of a country drained by war; the devolution of virtually every human service, from education and health to the availability of food and commodities; and the loss of Sudan's most precious resource--its people...who have been forced to flee the country by the hundreds of thousands as a result of economic hardship or political disturbance."

Return migration of the aged in the United States is analyzed using data from the five percent Public Use Microdata Sample of the 1980 census. "Results indicate that a recently retired elderly person is likely to select his/her place (state) of birth if it has a pleasant climate and low living costs. Also the less wealthy and single people are more likely to select their places of birth than other migrants. In general, it has been found that place characteristics are influential in the decisions of return migration of the recently retired."

"From the creation of the Comprehensive Plan of Action (CPA) in 1989 through December 1994, about sixty-eight thousand asylum seekers have voluntarily repatriated to Vietnam. In response to this reverse migration, the international community has funded numerous reintegration assistance programs to facilitate the asylum seekers' return. This article examines reintegration assistance programs currently operating in Vietnam and presents an argument that small scale income generation projects constitute the most effective and efficient use of scarce repatriation funding."

"In this paper we describe and evaluate a method for measuring the effects of Hurricane Andrew on the housing stock and population distribution in Dade County, Florida. Using information collected through sample surveys and from other data sources, we investigate the extent of housing damages, the number of people forced out of their homes, where they went, how long they stayed, and whether they returned to their prehurricane residences. We conclude that more than half the housing units in Dade County were damaged by Hurricane Andrew; that more than 353,000 people were forced to leave their homes, at least temporarily; and that almost 40,000 people left the county permanently as a direct result of the hurricane. We believe that this study will provide methodological guidance to analysts studying the demographic effects of other large-scale natural disasters."
This is a revised version of a paper originally presented at the 1995 Annual Meeting of the Population Association of America.

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 analyzes the return migration of foreign-born persons in the United States. We argue that return migration may have been planned as part of an optimal life cycle residential location sequence. Return migration also occurs because immigrants based their initial migration decision on erroneous information about opportunities in the United States....Immigrants tend to return to wealthy countries which are not too far from the United States. Moreover, return migration accentuates the type of selection characterizing the immigrant population left in the United States."

Some problems concerning the estimation of levels of temporary migration in the United States are examined. "This paper examines methodologies reported in the literature and suggests an `add-on' telephone survey design that is replicable....Results from a cross section of a Florida telephone survey are compared to results obtained using a similar instrument in Arizona. The telephone survey promises both cost effectiveness and a design that can be repeated in different locations. This methodology, applied across states and areas, will provide a unified approach to collecting data on temporary migrants in the U.S. population."

This study concerns American immigrants who returned permanently to their countries of origin, primarily in Europe, between 1880 and 1930. The author examines four main questions: "How were immigrants who planned to return home different from those who expected to put down roots in America--especially in motivations for leaving Europe and expectations for life in the United States? How were these temporary immigrants different while living and working in America, and how did this experience change them? What were the temporary immigrants' influences on America? What did remigrants carry back (in their hands as well as in their heads), and how was the homeland affected by their return?" The study examines the impact of the returning immigrants on both the United States and their countries of origin.

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.

"This paper discusses some major determinants of rural-urban migration in Nigeria using the logit estimation technique. It utilizes cross-sectional data generated from a national sample survey of internal migration conducted...between January and March 1988....The empirical results revealed that the significant determinants of rural-urban migration in Nigeria are income, contact, cost, spoken English, ability to speak two Nigerian languages, distance, marital status, sex and ethnicity. The results further suggest that rural-urban migration is selective of single people and males. Proximity to urban areas where prospective migrants have relatives, friends and townspeople is an important factor."

"The various studies focussing on human settlements in Senegal show that the share of population living in cities is ever increasing because of the massive and continuous flow from rural areas. The persistance of such migration trends from the country to cities deepens regional disparities, compounds the difficulties and cost of city management and development, specially in the case of Dakar, and runs counter to the goals of social and economic development plans....The growing importance of such phenomena calls for the designing of corrective measures in favour of rural areas and small towns in order to settle rural populations and halt the inordinate and chaotic geographical growth of large cities. Failing this, development efforts may well be compromised."

"This article seeks to analyse agrarian structure and policy in the Soviet period and discuss their effect on migration from rural to urban areas. In the case of [Soviet] Central Asia, neither the various steps to bring down labour intensity in the farm sector, nor the falling standard of living in rural areas, could bring about migration from rural to urban areas. This was because in traditional societies economic mechanisms are not effective unless they are complemented by appropriate social and cultural policies. All policies were oriented towards the state's goal of vertical integration of regions with the central economy. In Central Asia in particular this policy resulted in serious distortions in the social and economic spheres."

"Under certain simplifying assumptions relating to the migration process, generalized inflated geometric distribution for some observations on migration from rural areas has been evaluated. The parameters involved in the distribution are estimated by [the] maximum likelihood method. The elements of the information matrix are given for the determination of variances and covariances of the estimates. The distribution is applied to an example [for India] and provides an adequate fit to the data."

"This paper uses a dynastic model with intergenerational altruism to analyse rural-urban migration during times of high unemployment rates and low expected income, and to explain the higher mobility of young generations. Different dynastic utilities between generations lead to conflicts between generations on migration decisions, and predict the higher mobility of the young generation. In addition, the model explores how the degree of altruism affects the migration decision."

"The urban agglomeration of Ho Chi Minh City functions as the main development pole of Vietnam....The main characteristics of migrants and the labour force in the city are analyzed, based on a survey undertaken in 1994. Some findings are similar to those in other countries of South-East Asia, such as the predominance of female migrants. Other results are more distinctive, such as the relatively high education level among the migrants, lower levels of unemployment than expected, the limited participation of migrants in the informal sector, and the relatively high income of migrants."

"This paper aims to study the pattern of urbanization and the evolution of [the] relationship between rural-urban migration and the degree of economic development taking Gross National Product...into consideration. Intercensal age-specific rural net out-migration rates are also estimated from [tabulations] of the proportion of rural population of India by age through a recently developed procedure based on generalized stable population by Stupp (1989). A comparative study is also made between [the] survival column of India with a developed nation like Japan."

"An attempt has been made in this paper to quantitatively link the rural-urban net migration rate over time with the processes of urbanization and development [in India], especially economic development. For a number of rural-urban natural increase differentials the estimated values of urbanization, using the proposed models, are found quite close to the observed pattern of urbanization based on economic development. The estimates of rural-urban migration rates have also been computed. The paper also explores the application of the recently developed intercensal estimation technique of Stupp (1989) to estimate the age-specific rural net out-migration rate in India for males and females separately. A comparative study has also been made between India and Japan in terms of rural out-migration. It is observed that the probability of still being in the rural area up to the age of 15, given an individual was living in rural area at age 5, is 0.91 for males for India and 0.75 for Japan."
