"German migration statistics are based on a system of local registers, and a change of dwelling is considered to be a migration event. In the international context, this may lead to many discrepancies, because other countries usually use other or modified definitions. Often a particular intended length of stay is a precondition for a definition of an individual as a migrant. Sometimes only a change of permanent residence is recognised as creating a migration event, excluding all seasonal movements with an intended stay of several years. Migration data thus have to be used very carefully. One possibility for avoiding extreme differences in data between two countries may be to consider only migration balances. By doing so many disturbance effects in the data may cancel each other out in the long term."

"This paper will review selected migration processes in the longer term. It will seek to place modern migration patterns into a wider range of the migration behaviour which human populations have experienced in their history and prehistory. It will emphasise that the forms of migration which we see today, and [by] which we judge the demographic effects of migration, are only a sub-set of possible migratory behaviour. Other forms of migration, some now extinct, have had much more substantial effects upon human population than do most current forms of migration, even the recent substantial international migration to Western Europe and the United States."

The author discusses differences in destinations chosen by immigrants and native-born migrants in the United States. "The surging immigration of the 1990s continues to cluster into just a handful of large, mostly coastal metro areas. In contrast, domestic migrants are attracted to growth poles in economically booming metros and nonmetro counties east of the California immigrant ports and to dynamic metros in the Southeast and Texas and interior parts of the North. They prefer smaller metros and nonmetropolitan areas." Additional information and supporting statistics are available online at http://www.psc.lsa.umich.edu/pubs.

Tax burden and migration: a political economy perspective.

"The extent of taxation and redistribution policy is generally determined at a political-economy equilibrium by a balance between those who gain and those who lose from a more extensive tax-transfer policy. In a stylized model of migration and human capital formation we find, somewhat against conventional wisdom, that low-skill migration may lead to a lower tax burden and less redistribution than without migration, even though the migrants (naturally) join the pro-tax cum transfer coalition."

"Migration from the mountain areas of pre-industrial Europe has been seen as the product of poverty. While hardship controlled the strategies of the more marginalized households, better placed families used their migration experience to establish themselves in commerce. Over generations they used contacts and kinship systems to develop important informal trading networks. It is difficult to establish the effects of this hidden activity on local mountain economies, but dowry payments and post mortem inventories [from Savoy, now in France] are used to expose the impact of inflowing capital and its circulation."

Migrants are defined as those individuals who have changed their residence since the 1976 Census, crossing at least a municipal boundary. Socio-economic and demographic characteristics are perceived to differentiate stayers from movers, and to distinguish each migrant type [that is to say] intraprovincial, interprovincial and international. Discriminant analysis is applied to classify people into migrant types based on their personal characteristics and the typology developed."

The author outlines an implementation of a theory of labor migration under asymmetric information that provides a rich and integrated set of predictions. A basic model of labor migration under conditions of asymmetric information is first developed. The author then traces migration patterns arising from an example involving just two skill levels. He then proceeds to a four-skill-levels case and derives the resulting migration patterns. Finally, the approach utilized in the paper is placed in the context of several hypotheses concerning labor migration.

Demographic trends concerning immigrants to Canada are analyzed using data from a number of sources, including the 1991 census. The author concludes that the demographic behavior of immigrants does not differ greatly from that of Canadians as a whole. However, immigrants generally tend to settle in major urban areas, and assimilate into the English-speaking rather than the Francophone community. Overall, immigrants compare favorably with native Canadians in respect to income; however, more recent immigrants from places other than Europe or the United States tend to be less economically successful, which could pose some problems for the future.

For lesbian and gay prospective migrants, obtaining citizenship rights is difficult owing to the laws affording status being based on bloodlines and marriage. This immediately excludes lesbian and gay relationships, which are generally not recognised for the purpose of obtaining rights of residence. I explore these issues in the context of the different policies towards the migration of lesbians and gay men in the Netherlands and the United Kingdom."

This article provides some answers which we hope will allow the debate on the extent and causes of migrant professional progress in Australia to proceed on a firmer foundation." The authors find that "migrants have made a major contribution to Australia's professionally-qualified workforce. Those arriving pre-1980s and early 1980s have largely been able to convert their qualifications into professional level employment. However, later arriving migrants have been far less successful."

"Evidence on labor immigration and capital inflows to three high labor-immigration economies (Australia, Canada, the United States) is examined over periods ranging from 1820-1870 through to 1991. Data show a close association between capital flows and immigration, although causality implications are ambiguous. For the United States, the relation between factor flows is more complex than for the other countries, but flows to the United States have influenced those to smaller economies. All three nations have been subjected to common immigrant push factors through to 1930-1950 but, since World War II, linkages between factor flows have altered. Post-World War II U.S. immigration restrictions have become more important as a global determinant of labor flows, with factor flow policymaking becoming increasingly internationally interdependent."

The experiences of France and the United States concerning immigration and the integration of immigrants into the labor force are compared for the period 1880 to 1930. "Although immigration to the U.S. was politically interpreted and valued as the individual migrants' voluntary decision, only one step removed from citizenship, the absence of state regulation in the labor market reinforced the role of ethnic groups as mediators of the migration and integration process. In France, conversely, immigrants, assisted as they were and directed to their place of work by the joint effort of employers and state agencies with the consent of organized labor, found themselves direct wards of the State which developed its administrative functions to intervene on behalf of the migrants, of employers and of the `national' labor force to prevent the formation of dual labor markets. This analysis...emphasizes the historical construction of the silent and complete assimilation process within the working class in pre-World War II France, and that of ethnicity as an enduring category in the American society resulting from the vacuum of state run industrial relations."

Production uses three inputs: mobile labour, immobile capital and land.

The 100 most common surnames in each Italian region were used as references. Differences in the distribution of surnames between Italy and each French département were assessed and mapped to show changes in the distribution of the Italian population between one period and the next. In addition, by recording increasing birth rates among those with Italian surnames, it was possible to determine the flow of migration in terms of the Italian regions involved. These methods show that Italian migration is the result of both rather old migration flows on the south eastern border of France, and a more recent movement towards areas of employment (north east and south east)...."

The other purpose was to suggest possible improvements to the data collection and analysis efforts of federal statistical agencies and the social science research community." The report includes the workshop recommendations, and also has chapters on trends in U.S. immigration, effects of immigration and assimilation, labor force issues, social and family networks, immigration data needs, and the need for a longitudinal survey of immigrants.

"In Canada, paid domestic work is often associated with (im)migrant women from a variety of countries of origin. We critically analyse Canada's foreign domestic worker programmes, noting the shifting definitions of which nationalities should participate. We note how gendered, racialised, and classed constructions of national identities infuse these programmes. We then turn to an empirical analysis of how foreign domestic workers are constructed in Toronto, where demand is the highest in Canada."

Keys to successful immigration: implications of the New Jersey
experience. ISBN 0-87766-661-X. LC 96-49248. 1997. xviii, 428 pp.
Urban Institute Press: Washington, D.C. In Eng.
This is a collection of 14 papers by various authors focusing on the economic, social, and political integration of the immigrant population of New Jersey over the decade 1980-1990. Implications for national immigration policies are drawn throughout the book. The foreword describes New Jersey in comparative perspective. Part 1 examines the demographic context, and is divided into three chapters: a comparison of the demographic and labor-market characteristics of the foreign-born population of New Jersey and the foreign-born population of the United States as a whole; an estimation of the numbers and demographic characteristics of undocumented immigrants in New Jersey, including a discussion of their fiscal impact in the state and the federal and state public policies aimed at reducing their size and impact; and an analysis of public opinion concerning immigration. Part 2 describes the economic, social, and political impacts of immigration and has chapters on the impact on wages and employment; state and local fiscal impacts; education; the effect of place of birth and ethnicity on birth outcomes; and the political behavior of immigrants. Part 3 analyzes immigrant adaptation and provides chapters on differences in fertility between immigrants and natives; immigrant incomes and labor-force assimilation; homeownership; segregation; and language ecology.

Migration [IOM]: Geneva, Switzerland. In Eng.
In this report, the author examines some of the possible solutions to the problems caused by global migration pressures. The proposed solutions aim at two main objectives: first, to increase employment opportunities in the countries of migrant origin; and second, to provide increased levels of international support through the United Nations Population Fund for programs to reduce fertility in those countries. Measures for a moderate increase in legal migration from South to North are also discussed.

"This paper tries to combine the issue of immigration and the long-term development of social security budgets....Can immigration help to solve the problems that future demographic change will cause for social security funds? The paper [examines] this problem using German social security data....The simulations show that the effects of immigration on the contribution rates of the social security system are quite small. In other words the problems of social security systems cannot be resolved by immigration policy....As demographic developments and institutional arrangements in social security are similar in most European states, the results also allow conclusions about other European countries."

"Immigrants who arrived in the United States before the Civil War were less likely to reside in locations with high immigrant concentrations as their time in the U.S. increased. This is contrary to the experience of recent immigrants who show no decrease in concentration after arrival....The isolation of contemporary immigrants even after several years in the U.S. thus results more from the reluctance of the native-born to relocate to places with many immigrants than from immigrants' reluctance to move to places with fewer immigrants. Contemporary immigrants had greater success than antebellum immigrants avoiding unskilled jobs as they entered the U.S. job market, though they moved out of unskilled jobs less often than antebellum immigrants....These findings suggest the need to reevaluate some of the premises upon which the concerns about the economic performance of recent immigrants are based."

The role of the immigrant entrepreneur in the mass immigration from Europe to the United States that occurred over the course of the nineteenth century is examined. The authors define entrepreneurship and hypothesize about its transfer from one country to another; they then review possible sources of immigrant entrepreneurship. Finally, they examine the extent to which entrepreneurship was linked to nineteenth-century immigration to the United States by analyzing several data samples.

"The recent scrutiny given to the impact of post-1965 immigration to the United States has largely overlooked an important long-term consequence: social and demographic divisions, across regions, that are being created by distinctly different migration patterns of immigrants and domestic, mostly native-born migrants. Evidence for 1990-95 shows a continuation of: highly focused destinations among immigrants whose race-ethnic and skill-level profiles differ from those of the rest of the population; migration patterns among domestic migrants favoring areas that are not attracting immigrants; and accentuated domestic outmigration away from high immigration areas that is most evident for less educated and lower-income long-term residents. These separate migration patterns are leading to widening divisions by race-ethnicity and population growth across broad regions of the country. These patterns are likely to make immigrant assimilation more difficult and social and political cleavages more pronounced."

281-312 pp. Brockport, New York. In Eng.
"This paper examines the issues of who is likely to migrate and why, and what happens when people migrate, by viewing the migratory process as a strategy formulated and implemented by networks of kin for culturally surviving the redefinitions of contemporary political systems within the context of the capitalist world economy. Specifically the argument presented is that people move across the juridical boundaries of contemporary nation-states as part of household strategies designed to maintain membership in a specific social stratum. For a substantial number this social stratum is a middle class. Self-identification with a social stratum, in other words, takes precedence over self-identification with, and commitments to, nation, region or ethnic group."

This chapter "constitutes an attempt to summarize the present state of knowledge concerning the national economic impacts of immigrants on domestic workers in the United States. Section I provides a simple model of international migration that allows us to theoretically describe some of the basic points of contention in the debate regarding the economic effects of immigration. Section II develops a wide range of empirical evidence that relates to the issues raised in Section I. Section III provides conclusions." The authors advance some possible reasons for what they see as the relatively small impact of immigration on the U.S. economy as a whole.

This chapter "presents the standard economic analysis of the effects of labor migration on output and income distribution, and expands it by considering the implications of accompanying flows of financial, human, and knowledge capital." The author expands on traditional models by introducing the concepts of rival and nonrival capital used in the New Growth Theory. He concludes that "this paper has presented a framework for the positive analysis of the effects of migration on wage rates and income shares of the populations in the countries of emigration and immigration. The main and most general conclusion of the analysis is that migration raises global efficiency and income."

National Bureau of Economic Research [NBER]: Cambridge, Massachusetts.
"We examine illegal immigration in the United States from Mexico over the period 1976-1995. One challenge is that we do not observe the number of individuals that attempt to enter the United States illegally; we only observe the number of individuals apprehended attempting to cross the U.S.-Mexico border illegally. Based on a simple migration model, we postulate the existence of an apprehensions function, which expresses apprehensions at the border as a function of illegal attempts to cross the border and U.S. border-enforcement effort....We find that a 10% decrease in the Mexican real wage leads to a 7.5% to 8.8% increase in apprehensions at the border."

Current trends in international migration are examined in the context of recent changes in the world economy. The author notes that "despite tighter controls, increasing numbers of workers are moving, whether legally or not, between countries. Unskilled immigrant workers play a vital role in improving standards of living in the developed world. And in turn the countries from which they have come benefit in a major way from the earnings sent back home. Arguing that few of the fears about immigration are justified, and that increased immigration tends to mean that jobs and incomes expand, [the author] shows why governments will have to ensure the freedom of people to come and go as they choose."

"Recent studies suggest that the earnings of pre-1890 immigrants grew slowly compared with those of natives and imply that these immigrants did not assimilate well into the American labor market. Using data for Michigan and California this article estimates new specifications for immigrant and native-born earnings, and finds that immigrants who arrived as children had similar earnings profiles to the native-born. Immigrants who arrived as adults suffered an initial earnings disadvantage but their earnings grew faster than those of the native-born. These results are consistent with the traditional view that pre-1890 immigrants assimilated well."

"This paper searches first for alternative explanations about migration dynamics and, in particular, the migration transition in Asian countries. It raises the question whether increasing economic interdependence will increase labor mobility and attempts to explain the association between them with a simple model. Countries in the region are divided [into] three groups with regard to international labor migration: transitional, non-transitional exporters, and non-transitional importers. Increasing economic integration will lead to migration transition for many Asian countries, but with uncertainties concerning in particular China and South Asia."

"A methodology is devised for the empirical analysis of the determinants of outmigration of immigrants in a population. Empirical studies in this area have been hindered by a lack of longitudinal data on the characteristics of the immigrants. This problem is tackled by making use of cross-sectional data at two points in time. It is applied to the study of male immigrants in the United States. It is found that education is positively related to the rate of outmigration for immigrants from Canada, Asia and the pooled sample of immigrants. This finding suggests that the cross-sectional estimates of the growth in earnings of immigrants in the United States are underestimated for these groups of immigrants."

"Using data gathered in 25 Mexican communities, the authors link individual acts of migration to 41 theoretically defined individual-, household-, community-, and macroeconomic-level predictors. The indicators vary through time to yield a discrete-time event-history analysis. Over the past 25 years, probabilities of first, repeat, and return migration have been linked more to the forces identified by social capital theory and the new economics of migration than to the cost-benefit calculations assumed by the neoclassical model. The authors find that Mexico-U.S. migration stems from three mutually reinforcing processes: social capital formation, human capital formation, and market consolidation."

5, No. 2-3, 1996. 219-40 pp. Quezon City, Philippines. In Eng.
"This paper is intended to be a prelude of a study on intermediaries in international migration in Asia, based primarily on the Japanese case. In the next section, I introduce the legal framework of labor contracting in Japan....In Section 3, I pick up several actual examples of the channels of migrant workers coming to Japan. They are: (i) Japanese-descended migrant workers from Brazil, (ii) job-trainees from China, (iii) entertainers from the Philippines, (iv) `slavery' women from Thailand, and (v) workers smuggled from China by snake heads. This illustrates differences according to types of migrants, as well as common features across them. In Section 4, I try to explain the features by using simple economic concepts. Section 5 considers a broader Asian context. Section 6 concludes with a summary of major findings in this paper."

"At the same time as the political tensions increased in Europe around 1900, an international labor market was developing. More and more proletarians from different parts of the continent searched for labor opportunities in the center of the agrarian and industrial capitalism. In several countries, including Russia, capitalists more and more actively recruited labor migrants for seasonal work. The labor migrants became a political issue as a part of the trade negotiations between Germany and Russia. Also, the Austrian colonization and political expansion in the Balkans can be looked upon in a perspective of (labor) migration. Class and ethnic conflicts coincided and escalated into an international conflict."

"This paper brings some simple general equilibrium modelling with unemployment to bear on the question of the economic effects of immigration. Employment and taxation effects, rather than wage and distribution effects, are found to be crucial in determining the impact of immigration on the welfare of factor owners in the receiving country....Certain types of immigration are shown to be Pareto improving for the receiving country, without any need for lump sum transfers. Some simple simulations are carried out to illustrate the results. The results contrast sharply with findings of previous partial equilibrium and full employment studies, and have significant policy implications."

This is a collection of six studies by various authors on aspects of contemporary Caribbean migration, particularly concerning the Dominican Republic, Jamaica, Haiti, and the United States. "The volume's contributors present innovative ways of reconceptualizing and studying Caribbean emigration and return. The authors jettison the conventional, settler-sojourner model and recommend, instead, a more dynamic approach that affirms the transnational identities, processes, and structures that constitute contemporary Caribbean migration. Their accounts are enriched by an appreciation of the ways in which these identities and processes are inflected by differences of class, race, gender, generation, and locality. Finally in exploring the crucial link between Caribbean migration and economic development the contributors emphasize the social embeddedness of individual migrants' economic actions."

International migration, remittances and income distribution in the
source country: a synthesis. Bulletin of Economic Research, Vol.
49, No. 1, Jan 1997. 29-46 pp. Oxford, England. In Eng.
"The paper explores, under a wide variety of circumstances, the welfare impact of emigration. The analytical framework posited is a simple two-factor, two-commodity, two-class general equilibrium model that makes a distinction between traded and non-traded goods. The principal aim is to collect and synthesize the well-known results in the literature, derived from diverse analytical frameworks, as well as to establish a number of new ones. It is shown that pure emigration can be beneficial to the non-emigrants in the source country, irrespective of the welfare criteria adopted, if accompanied by sufficient remittances. The paper also highlights the fact that emigration does not affect all classes in society symmetrically. The division of losers and gainers depends on the volume of remittances, the distribution of factor endowments and the type of emigration."

economic consequences of immigration: lessons for immigration

York/Berlin, Germany. In Eng.
The economic impact of immigration on the countries of North America and Western Europe is examined, with particular emphasis on the tax-and-transfer aspects. The author concludes that "though high-skill immigrants have a stronger positive effect than low-skill immigrants do...there is no group of immigrants--no matter how small their educations--who have been shown to have a negative effect upon the economy." He therefore recommends policies that allow more immigrants or provide for an auction of potential immigrants if unrestricted immigration is not an option; and he suggests developing guest-worker programs as an alternative to illegal immigration.

"It has been estimated that more than 70 million people, from developing countries mostly, are employed outside their native countries, legally or illegally, that more than a million people emigrate on a permanent basis to other countries every year, that as many seek asylum and that more than 12 million refugees live outside their native countries. These estimates point at external migrations as a widely spread and growing phenomenon, with various important developmental, economic, political and humanitarian facets. Like almost all other countries, Yugoslavia too is affected by this global phenomenon and it has been in the world migratory trends for a long time now. Its entire territory was characterized by external migrations and some of its regions particularly by migration for economic reasons."

"In France, the study of migrations has been hampered by considerable inadequacies in the system of statistical production. This paper analyses the structural factors underlying this weakness, that is inadequate freedom for publicly-funded research, overwhelming presence of ideology and lack of interest in truly empirical methods. Such factors have meant that relatively little priority has been given to migration study and have delayed the emergence of methodological reflections. Thus it was natural that the INED (National Institute for Demographic Studies), who had worked in this way, should undertake the first large-scale random survey on immigrants or foreign origin populations in France."

"Italy has recently become an immigrant destination, but there is some difficulty in estimating the number of foreigners living in the Italian territory. Official estimates put it at 500,000, and more than twice this number if clandestine residents are counted. Population experts and academics doing research on the subject have had to work out new ways, official and direct or non-official and indirect, of counting the successive waves coming in from the Philippines, Cape Verde and Eastern Europe. Many foreign immigrants fit themselves into the highly-developed informal economy of the country; but many non-European citizens move on from Italy to other Schengen-signatory countries."

The chapters in this book are a selection from papers presented at a conference on labor migration held in Antwerp, Belgium, November 4, 1994; the meeting was the fifteenth annual conference of the Belgian-Dutch Association of Post-Keynesian Studies. The first chapter, by Russell King, puts migration into its historical perspective, and argues that labor migration has played a key role over the course of history. The second, by Bimal Ghosh, looks at the economic aspects of labor migration from the perspective of the sending countries. Vernon Briggs looks at the impact of labor migration on receiving countries, and examines immigrants and efficiency in labor markets, the inclusion of equity issues into public policy, and the impact of social policy. Finally, Heinz Werner analyzes the process of economic integration in the European Union and its relation to international labor migration, and considers the prospects for developing an immigration policy at the communal, as opposed to the national, level.

"This article seeks to bring the `urban' back into immigration research. Each immigrant receiving area has its own particular group of newcomers, and the economic and political structures of the immigrant receiving areas are also distinctive. Those structures are not all determining, as immigrant trajectories are shaped by the interaction between distinctive urban institutions and the specific characteristics of the relevant ethnic groups. But in the last analysis, the urban context makes a difference, as this study shows by examining the leading [U.S.] immigrant destinations--New York and Los Angeles."

Economic aspects of international migration, edited by Herbert Giersch.
1994. 249-73 pp. Springer-Verlag: New York, New York/Berlin, Germany.
In Section I, the author articulates two demographic factors that will determine the availability of human resources in Europe at the turn of the century: a continued decline in fertility that will lead to labor shortages, and an increase in migration pressures from non-EC countries. "Section II summarizes some stylized facts of aging and migration in Europe and West Germany, stating that Germany can serve as an important reference case because (i) its labor force is aging considerably, (ii) it has experienced a large inflow of immigrants in recent decades, and (iii) it seems to be attractive [on the basis of] current economic conditions. Section III outlines the European migration problem, where it is discussed to what extent this problem can be approached with lessons [from] North America. Section IV summarizes the papers in the volume and outlines what can be learned [that is relevant to] the European migration problem. Section V concludes."

"This paper attempts to identify the factors that influence motivations for migration among the migrants [in Nigeria] (push and pull factors). The empirical results from the national survey of internal migration on which this study is based showed that the differences observed in the weights migrants attached to motivations for migration were statistically significant and did not just occur by chance. Though both the push and pull factors were important in explaining migration [decisions], the push factors were more important in the decision to migrate than the pull factors. This calls for a more comprehensive and coherent attention on the push factors in government efforts to stem anti-developmental migration patterns in Nigeria."

"Migration flows for the total population have been the subject of a great number of studies. Migration flows relating to foreigners within national borders, on the other hand, have not been widely examined. And yet we can legitimately ask what the role of such migration flows is on the distribution of foreigners within the country. After a brief analysis of the mobility rates between census years for the main nationality groupings, we present an analytical method which shows that, as far as the regions in the south of France are concerned, migration flows have had a minimal effect on the fall in numbers of foreigners and immigrants registered over the last few years."

"In this analysis, data are used from the 1991 Census Special Migration Statistics to model the migration flows into the Scottish highlands and islands, from the remainder of Britain, between 1990 and 1991. A Poisson regression approach is used to identify the origins of unusually large flows into this broad destination area, and to introduce origin-based explanatory variables which help to explain the factors influencing these flows. The flows into this area which originate in Scotland are contrasted with those which originate in England and Wales and the findings suggest that middle class in-migration from southern England continues to be a significant element of population change in this remote rural destination."

Added to this motive force is the gap between urban and rural areas in terms of income, which has constantly widened ever since reform. An analysis [of] the characteristics of migration shows that the migratory process is in step with the laws of economic growth and market development and is therefore inevitable. Finally, this paper presents a prediction of future trends and possible directions of policies."

In the empirical part of the paper a regression model is estimated using annual data for 14 Danish counties covering the period 1981-1993. The migration rate is influenced by factors such as unemployment, vacancy rates and other economic factors such as wages and prices. Finally, the influence of spatial factors is discussed."

Abingdon, England. In Eng.
"This paper uses a typology of local metropolitan development to examine population redistribution trends in the U.S. over the past three decades. Theories of systemic maturation and urban life-cycles are discussed and evaluated. Analysis of population and inter-county migration data reveals that localised deconcentration has become an increasingly common sub-process of metropolitanisation, but that this sub-process cannot be fully explained by a life-cycle model of metropolitan development. More importantly, results indicate that metro-based migration varies significantly with local patterns of metropolitanisation. The nature of this variation implies that declining metropolitan areas tend to redistribute migrants to relatively distant metropolitan and non-metropolitan territory in a manner consistent with extended processes of population deconcentration."

"In spite of extensive literature on migration in the Soviet Union, we know little about household-level decisions.

Using data from the Soviet Interview Project (SIP), we examine the forces influencing the decision to migrate or not to migrate, and in addition, for those who did migrate, the forces influencing the locational choices made. The results indicate that, while some of the traditional factors influencing migration are important, others are not, suggesting that in the post-Soviet era, differentiating the persistence of Soviet-type forces from emerging market-type forces will be important for an understanding of urban to urban migration."

"The purpose of this paper is to bring new insights to some of the conflicting findings in the migration literature about the developing countries, by the analysis of the Turkish migration data between 1965-85. The possible reasons behind these inconsistencies in the findings are explained firstly in terms of spatial and temporal characteristics of the data (mainly whether it includes intra-regional migration and whether it measures migration during a specified period of life-time migration, and whether it aggregates various different types of migration); and secondly by national macro factors (mainly the level of urbanization and the characteristics of Turkey's urban systems)."

"Using nationally representative data from the 1988 China 2/1,000 Fertility and Birth Control Survey, this article examines the impact of economic reform and rural enterprises on the different forms of mobility in China during 1983-88. Central to our endeavor is the measurement of the impact of economic development, foreign capital investment, and rural enterprises on interprovincial migration." The results confirm that migrants are more likely to move out of provinces with a large population and lower levels of economic development.

"This paper examines data from a mainland Scotland survey of household migration into owner-occupied properties identified from the Register of Sasines. Plotting of movements reveals migration patterns, but of arguably greater interest are the increasingly segmented and largely unexplored household decisions which drive migration. The purpose of the survey was to reveal something of these migration processes. Overview results presented here confirm that most moves are short distance, reasons for moving differ according to distance travelled, and although employment remains important for long-distance moves, its significance has declined in favour of quality of life considerations."

The author examines "the content of the studies mentioned in the bibliography in order to [investigate]...both the most recent general tendencies of short and long distance migrations [in Italy]. Economic variables appear to have lost a good deal of their explanatory capacity on behalf of causal factors linked with the `life cycle'. Also mentioned are the main conceptual categories used in order to define the consequences of migrations on the spatial distribution of populations: so-called `atomistic' settlement models, based on administrative units, are now in competition with the growing importance of `functional' models, based on pull areas."

residential mobility. Professional Geographer, Vol. 49, No. 1, Feb
1997. 14-28 pp. Oxford, England. In Eng.
"This paper investigates the role of housing age in constraining residential mobility, measured as the percent of households that have moved into their homes in the past 15 months. The leading explanation for why mobility rates differ so much among regions of the United States has been the overall level of growth. The present analysis shows that the growth effect operates through both the newness of population (migration) and the newness of housing available for occupancy by all local residents. The posited explanation for this housing age effect is that progressively older units contain increasingly settled occupants, yielding fewer opportunities for in-movers in areas with older housing. It is empirically demonstrated that households in older housing have lower likelihood of recent mobility even after controlling for age, tenure, migration status, and state location of residence. The analysis reveals the temporal interdependency of mobility, migration, person age, and housing age."

Overall, the migration patterns of blacks resemble those of whites, with an attraction to the South and the Southwest and movement out of the Northeast and the Midwest. Some differences were observed, however, between the two races. Return migration rates were somewhat higher for black migrants as compared with whites, and onward migration rates were lower. Black primary out-migrants represented a larger proportion of the total flows from the southern states as compared with white out-migrant flows, and they represented a larger share of the out-migrants from the rust belt states. The major migration streams also had different regional and national patterns by race and migrant type."

L. Region, migration, and attitudes in the United

pp. Austin, Texas. In Eng.
Data from the Cumulative General Social Surveys for the period 1972-1994 are used to compare attitudes of U.S. white migrants who have moved away from and to the South. The results indicate that "nonsoutherners who have moved to the South hold almost the same values as other nonsoutherners, suggesting that these migrants have not adopted southern opinions. Southerners who have relocated outside the South, however, hold attitudes that are closer to those of nonsoutherners than to those of southerners. This pattern persists when the data are segmented into two periods, 1972-1983 and 1984-1994." The authors conclude that "placed in the framework of the theoretical literature on migration, southern migrants seem to be assimilating into nonsouthern culture and nonsouthern migrants appear to be retaining their views, leaving the South a more pluralistic region."

F. Migration in market and democracy transition: migration
intentions and behavior in Romania. Population Research and Policy
Review, Vol. 15, No. 5-6, Dec 1996. 437-57 pp. Dordrecht, Netherlands.
"This paper analyzes the determinants of migration decision-making in the context of recent market and democratic transition in Romania. Using early 1990s internal migration survey, census and population register data, the results from Lisrel path models show that market and democracy value orientation variables are significant determinants of intentions to move, controlling for individual and regional social structural and resource indicators. Similarly, district-level out-migration behavior is directly determined by the political profile of the local area. Results from the total and disaggregated rural and urban models are interpreted through a reform values and characteristics typology of migrants. At least in the early stages of Romanian transition, the results indicate that migration choice behavior is governed by a search for places with greatest opportunities in terms of market and democracy returns. Implications of the results for political system and public policy decision are discussed."

pp. Silver Spring, Maryland. In Eng.
"This study examines the argument that the higher prevalence of two-career marriages among women scientists presents a significant impediment to their geographic mobility. Three hypotheses are developed and tested. First, scientists in two-career families are less likely to migrate than scientists in one-career families. Second, the effect of two-career marriages on the probability of migration differs with gender; women are affected more negatively. Third, the effect of children on the probability of migration differs with gender; women are affected more negatively. The empirical work uses a data set of doctoral scientists extracted from the 5% Public Use Microdata Sample from the 1990 [U.S.] census. The first two hypotheses are not confirmed by the empirical results, but we find evidence supporting the third. Family constraints on women scientists' careers generally appear to be weak, but become acute when they have children."

"The ideal type of political organization is the nation-state, which leads to a presumption of state legitimacy when the state represents a community, based on ethnic origin or shared political values, that claims a right to persist. A nation-state tends to produce forced migration for three reasons: it contains more than one nation; the populace disagrees about the structure of the state or economy; or the state implodes due to the lack of resources. This paper elaborates a theory of refugee production and policy formation based on the dynamics of the nation-state. It concludes by addressing international refugee policy and practice in light of this theory and political changes following the end of the cold war."

"Despite increasing prominence in international population movements, refugee migration is a poorly understood social and spatial process. Common assumptions about refugee migration have rarely been empirically tested. This article focuses attention on the migration decision-making process of refugees. Its conceptual basis is that the decision making of refugees can be critically compared with that of other migrants. An analytical framework is suggested which focuses on the receipt and evaluation of information about prospective destinations in the decision-making process. It is tested in the context of Mozambican refugees in Malawi in 1992 and 1993. Analysis shows that this framework achieves a qualified success in explaining the patterns and processes of migration of the study population, and suggests broader applications for the framework."

"Hypotheses about remigration by immigrants are investigated using longitudinal data from the 1970s for immigrants to Israel. The main finding is that experience of unemployment during the first year in Israel does not, on the whole, help predict subsequent remigration. The propensity to remigrate varies inversely with age for most groups, and it increases if the immigrant has not acquired permanent housing. Immigrants on temporary resident visas are naturally more prone to remigrate in the short run. The well-educated and the young are more likely to be temporary residents."

"The purpose of this article is to extend the empirical literature on Chicano return migration by examining earnings differentials between return and onward Chicano migrants. Our approach reflects the complexity of estimating such effects in terms of selectivity biases and the interaction between individual and locational attributes. We use data derived from the public use microdata sample (PUMS) of the 1990 U.S. census. After controlling for migration and labor force self-selection, results indicate that Chicano return migrants are not negatively self-selected. Chicano return migrants have smaller earnings profiles largely due to the negative effects of living in areas with higher concentrations of co-ethnics. Apparently, return migrants, at least in the short run, are willing to accept lower earnings for the nonpecuniary benefits of living in the Southwest."

This is an analysis of out-migration from the hill region of Uttar Pradesh, India. The data are from a survey of 524 households undertaken in the area of migrant origin in 1985, and from interviews of 110 migrants from this region carried out in Delhi, the capital city. The focus of the study is on the impact of migration on the region of origin. The author analyzes the volume, destination, and characteristics of migrants from this region; the socioeconomic factors that influence them to migrate; and the importance of return migration. The results suggest that the out-migration of relatively young, well-educated males has a negative impact on the economy of both the region as a whole and on that of the individual families concerned.

The transformations of agrarian structure have produced important changes in the spatial configuration of country-city relations, particularly regarding the new features of rural-urban migration in regional contexts. Whereas until the sixties rural-urban migration was associated with an occupational shift from agriculture to urban employment, after the seventies this relation practically disappeared, leaving a virtual disassociation between the territorial mobility of the population and the occupational mobility of the labor force. This disassociation is a central trait of the current regional pattern of country-city relations."

"The term counterurbanisation is frequently used to describe the redistribution of a population away from major cities and metropolitan areas and towards more rural areas. The widespread nature of this phenomenon has attracted much attention, yet the concept remains relatively under-developed, and even the basic definition lacks rigour. It is not surprising, therefore, that there has been a lack of cumulative evidence as to the extent of the process and little agreement as to its significance. In essence, ambiguity surrounds the types of movement that should be admitted, the necessary motives for movement and the appropriate measures for both. This paper offers some preliminary suggestions for a more structured approach to the problem. It draws on original survey data from Devon [England], a county which has experienced substantial net in-migration, both to examine the contribution of three alternative definitions of counterurbanisation and to consider how these issues relate to motivation."

"Migration is a process of long duration, which reflects the migrant's needs and values. The causes of migration relate to the physical and social environments, and these factors can be described by push and pull theories. The probability of moving to a specific location depends on the differential attractiveness of the various regions available to the migrant. The rise of the turnaround phenomenon in migration in the developed countries has been explained by changes in the place-preference value system. Migration to the countryside has focused on areas within easy access of the main built-up areas in Kainuu, Finland."

"The Amazon region in Pará State, Brazil...is characterized by a high mobility of the rural population to the main cities and to the frontiers. This thesis is an analysis of the rural problems, the agricultural sector, the characteristics and the social situation of eastern Amazonia, with special focus on the Salgado, Bragantina and Guajarina regions. An initial [survey of 201 subjects] was carried out [among] the migrant population now living in the cities to establish their former problems in the rural areas. A second [survey of 72 subjects] was carried out in the rural area to ascertain the problems for rural development." In addition, 646 young people were surveyed on their attitudes toward agriculture and migration. "The main reasons for rural-urban migration are based on the poor transportation system and school situation....[In addition,] the agricultural system influences the migration rate." The author concludes that "a development of the rural areas is impossible for many years, as long as the present political situation remains."

"The aims of the present paper are: (i) to derive a probability model for total number of migrants from a household under certain assumptions; (ii) to estimate parameters [involved] in the model; (iii) to test the suitability of [the] model through observed demographic data." The model is applied to data from a 1987 sample survey in Varanasi, India.

"This paper examines three distinctive patterns of economic development in terms of their economic and migration outcomes in Zhejiang province, China. At the prefecture level, `trickle down' development works best in promoting rural development while reducing out-migration; but it requires a strong urban economy and sufficient investment. Rural household enterprise requires little government investment while boosting rural development; but it increases rural out-migration and, without a sound urban industrial base, is difficult to sustain in the long run. Rural collective industrialization achieves a better balance between rural development and out-migration. Future development should pay equal attention to rural development and urban expansion. The challenge should not be how to restrict but how to channel migration and capital flow."
