This is an analysis of out-migration from the Mexican region of Mixteca Baja. The authors suggest that, in a dependent capitalist country like Mexico, there are regions whose primary function is to act as source of labor, and that this is such a region. They conclude that the individual decision to migrate is the result of a social process that is part of the life of the community. Three types of factors influencing migration are identified--the economic, the demographic, and the cultural--and their relative importance is considered.

This is a descriptive essay on migration in Africa in the twentieth century. After a summary of the main characteristics of African migration, consideration is given to international migration both within and outside the African continent, internal migration, and rural-urban migration. The causes, characteristics, and consequences of various migratory flows are briefly discussed.

"Because in many societies women are marginalized from [basic human] rights, migration to more economically and educationally open societies can often help improve their personal situation and their professional opportunities. On the other hand...their social integration in new settings may be equally limited by their initial lack of education and occupational experience....Health monitoring of women in all migration-related situations has to be given greater priority. Similarly, much more attention at a health policy level is called for if the rights of women refugees and migrants are to be protected, and their contribution to health and social development is to be acknowledged and promoted."

This survey of world migration "begins in the sixteenth century with the establishment of European colonies overseas and covers the history of migration to the late twentieth century, when political conflict, global communications and transport systems stimulated immense and complex flows of displaced persons, labour migrants and skilled professionals. In ninety-five contributions leading scholars from twenty-seven different countries consider a wide variety of issues including regional migration patterns, the flights of refugees and illegal migration. Each entry constitutes a substantive essay, supported by up-to-date bibliographies, tables, plates, maps and figures." There are chapters on European colonization and settlement; Asian indentured and colonial migration; the great Atlantic migration to North America; migration in Europe, 1800-1950; migration in Africa; Latin and Central American migration; migration to North America after 1945; labor migration to Western Europe after 1945; repatriates and colonial auxiliaries; migration in Asia and Oceania; migration in the Middle East; refugees from political conflict; migrants and asylum-seekers in contemporary Europe; and emerging trends.

The factors that influence individual decisions about migration are explored in this chapter. Both the macro and micro aspects of migration motivation are considered. The authors note the value of an event-history approach, in which migration is analyzed in the context of various family and professional events experienced by the individual. The need to combine such micro-level approaches with macro-level migration analysis is discussed. These concepts are illustrated using French examples.

"The building of supranational spaces, strongly segmented, underscores both the new outlooks of the migratory phenomenon and the growing human mobility into protected spaces. The current mutations of socio-economical structures are supported by three main effects introducing on migratory dynamics: the planetary demographic growth and its spatial distribution, the widespread marketing links, the technological and the new media revolution. The time is ripe to argue about a global discourse on migration, i.e. literally about `migratology', which would allow the understanding of migratory modernity according to the contemporary `societal' mutations and the consequential evolution of its two basic analytical references: `space-time' and `flows-stock'. Eventually the question of the epistemological existence of a scientific identity for the migration theme is clearly stated by this approach."

"In this paper, we intend to explore the interconnections between...two types of migration: internal and international. The analysis emphasizes two themes. First, in the five year period 1985-90, the pattern of Mexican internal migration increasingly reflected an intensive movement of people from south to north, particularly to the northern border states and cities. This rising concentration of migrants in the north of Mexico constitutes important evidence of closer linkages between internal and international migration to the United States. Second, the internal migration trajectories of international migrants increasingly reflect the importance of Mexican metropolitan areas, as both receivers and providers, of internal and international migrants.

"This article evaluates the extent to which migration research profits from cohort approaches. First, some cohort approaches from the literature are discussed and evaluated. Next, expectations are presented concerning cohort differences in migration behaviour. These expectations are based on theoretical considerations stressing the instrumentality of the migration career to other careers in the life course. It is shown how these expectations have been confirmed with recent empirical findings, based on [data from the Netherlands]....The conclusion is that the contribution of cohort approaches to migration research is rather limited, and mainly restricted to the study of specific migration events that tend to take place only once in a lifetime, such as leaving the parental home."

This collection of studies by various authors aims to provide a comprehensive picture of migration flows and their influence on population redistribution within each of the countries of the European Union prior to 1995. The book is divided into three sections. The first section examines international migration patterns from east-west and north-south perspectives, migration within the European Union, and asylum seeking. The second section concerns national perspectives; there are chapters on Belgium, Denmark, Germany, Greece, Spain, France, Ireland, Italy, the Netherlands, Portugal, and the United Kingdom. The third section examines the impact of migration on population developments in the European Union, and includes papers on migration policy and population projections.

"While a generalized utility maximization approach to migration decisionmaking is not innovative, the principal extensions of this paper involve the search for an instrument capable of measuring changes in utility levels consistent with all preferences (i.e., with all forms of utility functions), requiring only data on observed behaviour. Our approach is to construct a Location-Specific Utility Index (LSUI), whose component variables serve as proxies for the arguments in [U.S.] households' utility functions....The testable hypothesis is formulated as follows: Assuming constant household preferences and expansion of the household's feasible set over time, the household's utility level is greater following the migration decision....The results are compared with the households' migration decisions. The empirical evidence shows that migration may reasonably be modelled as a consumption activity by households to maximize utility."

"This paper investigates the relationship between the internal migration of native-born workers and flows of immigrants to the United States using the 1980 and 1990 U.S. Census Bureau microsamples....Based on the estimation of three sets of regression models for five overlapping samples of the largest metropolitan areas in the United States and five mutually exclusive segments of the labor force, this analysis shows that the finding of a significant linkage between internal migration and immigration depends critically on the empirical experiment used. In direct opposition to previous published research, we conclude that net migration of the native born for metropolitan areas is either positively related or unrelated to immigration. Our models show that the net migration loss of unskilled native workers from metropolitan areas is probably a function of those cities' population size rather than immigrant flow to them. We conclude that the net migration loss of native-born workers from large metropolitan areas is more likely the result of industrial restructuring than of competition with immigrants."

We conclude this assessment with a review of six persistent challenges that bear attention in any attempt to establish a serious basis for policy making or theory-building on questions of fiscal costs and benefits associated with U.S. immigration."

"This study has argued that network migration is central to actual migratory movements, which suggests that its determinants should be carefully investigated. The analysis demonstrates that the network behavior of ethnic Germans can be explained, to a large degree, by observable characteristics. Two crucial variables were investigated, namely the connections to friends from the country of origin and the settlement close to relatives and friends. East Europeans, especially from Rumania, are significantly more connected to friends from the same country of origin than are East Germans. These connections strongly decline with duration of residence and presence in rural areas. Older people are more likely to settle close to friends or relatives at the time of immigration. Population density increases, education, length of stay in a reception camp, and per capita government expenditures decrease the likelihood of such a settlement."

"Immigration issues have risen once again to a prominent place on the public policy agenda of the United States....To understand why policy makers and the public have grown increasingly concerned about immigration, it is helpful to examine recent trends in the magnitude of flows of persons coming into the country compared to those at earlier time periods....Thus, the specific purposes of this paper are: (1) to develop a portrait of the recent major migration flows to the United States, (2) to assess their implications for the racial/ethnic composition of the U.S. population, and (3) to examine the economic context in which they have occurred. The general goal is to try to explain not only why recent migration flows have come to be negatively perceived, but also why they appear increasingly to be seen as violating the prevailing sense of social contract in the United States."

This collection of essays grew out of a conference held at University College, London, September 21-22, 1994. "Bringing together international experts from a range of disciplines, this volume explores key questions concerning patterns of migration and different national policies, and their relation to political, social and cultural processes. Part One begins by examining the broader global and European context. Parts Two and Three then focus on four selected countries--Britain, France, Germany and Italy--within the broader European context." The book addresses the following questions: "Who is a citizen? Who is entitled to be part of a `national' community, and who is to be excluded? Who may cross what boundaries and borders, reside and work within particular states, and who may not? What perceptions do insiders have of outsiders? How do different communities within states behave towards each other, define, manipulate and act upon their mutual perceptions?"

"The focus of this research note is the migration of the Patidar community to East Africa--and remigration to Gujarat, India. The primary motive for migration of the immigrant Patidars was to work, accumulate money and return to India, claiming a higher caste status. By 1931, a sufficient number of the community had become economically affluent and were given a higher caste status by the census enumerators. This study illustrates the transient nature of Indian migration to East Africa and its impact on caste mobility."

"This article examines a unique data set randomly collected from Latinas (including 160 undocumented immigrants) and non-Hispanic white women in Orange County, California, including undocumented and documented Latina immigrants, Latina citizens, and non-Hispanic white women. Our survey suggests that undocumented Latinas are younger than documented Latinas, and immigrant Latinas are generally younger than U.S.-citizen Latinas and Anglo women. Undocumented and documented Latinas work in menial service sector jobs, often in domestic services. Most do not have job-related benefits such as medical insurance....Despite their immigration status, undocumented Latina immigrants often viewed themselves as part of a community in the United States, which significantly influenced their intentions to stay in the United States. Contrary to much of the recent public policy debate over immigration, we did not find that social services influenced Latina immigrants' intentions to stay in the United States."

In general, we reproduce the results of earlier work, leading us to conclude that despite inherent methodological problems, research based on cross-sectional censuses and surveys yields fundamentally accurate conclusions. In particular, we find unambiguous evidence that English proficiency rises with exposure to U.S. society, and we reaffirm earlier work showing a clear pattern of language assimilation among Mexican migrants to the United States."

No. 1, Spring 1997. 51-71 pp. Staten Island, New York. In Eng.
"This article is concerned with geographically indirect immigration to Canada over the period 1968-1988. A geographically indirect immigrant is an individual legally admitted to Canada whose country of last permanent residence differs from country of birth. Records maintained by Employment and Immigration Canada on every immigrant legally admitted over the period were used in the study. Relative to geographically direct immigrants, geographically indirect immigrants tend to be older, more educated, and more highly skilled. Moreover, if they were not born in an English or French speaking country, indirect immigrants are more likely to speak English and/or French capably than direct migrants born in such countries. The study also contains bivariate logit estimates of a model of geographically indirect Canadian immigration. This model suggests that indirect migrants tend to be influenced by personal characteristics (age, sex, marital status, occupation, language ability), as well as by various characteristics of the country of birth (distance from Canada, income level, political conditions)."

This study examines the labor force experience of women from two of the largest contemporary immigrant groups in the United States, Asians and Hispanics. In particular, the author attempts to answer two questions: Does migration selection contribute to the observed ethnic difference in the labor market performance of Asian and Hispanic immigrant women? If so, what role does immigration policy play in the selection of women from Asia and Latin America? Marital status at migration and migration pattern are proposed as empirical measures of migration selectivity. Data are primarily from the Current Population Survey. "The results show that migration selectivity significantly differentiates immigrant women in labor supply, but not in earnings. Among women who are married at the time of arrival in the United States, those who migrate before their husbands are most likely to participate in the labor force, while those who migrate after their husbands are least likely to do so."

pp. Oxford, England. In Eng. with sum. in Fre; Spa.
"This paper documents the impact of economic development on changes in employment and labour migration in Singapore. High export-led growth and the relaxation of immigration policies in the late 1960s enabled employment of substantial numbers of unskilled foreign labour in manufacturing, construction and domestic service sectors....Economic development in the 1990s, characterized by the regionalization drive which relocates relatively resource-intensive operations of Singapore-based companies overseas, has led to increased retrenchments and a moderation of demand for foreign workers. The upgrading of remaining production operations in Singapore is expected to increase demand for workers with higher skill levels. Emigration of highly educated and skilled professionals from Singapore became a national concern in the late 1980s. However, with regionalization, the new challenge in the 1990s has become one of encouraging Singaporeans to temporarily take up overseas positions."

Factors determining migrant remittances: the case of Greece.
International Migration Review, Vol. 31, No. 1, Spring 1997. 72-87 pp.
Staten Island, New York. In Eng.
"In this study we review the literature regarding the theory and the empirical evidence regarding migrants' remittance behavior, and we examine the flow and determinants of remittances from Greek migrants for the period 1961 to 1991. The main body of data is for remittances to Greece from Germany, but for some years data are available for remittances from Belgium and Sweden as well. The objective of this study is to test the significance of certain factors in terms of their effects on remittances to Greece. These factors are the migrant's income, the migrant's family income, the rate of unemployment, the rate of interest, the exchange rate, and the rate of inflation. The study attempts to see if these factors have had any effect on the volume of remittances. It also attempts to see if there are any structural changes during this period that affect migrants' propensity to remit."

"This paper discusses a type of migration apparently ignored in...demographic literature: the migration of related persons from the same source country to different destination countries....This paper begins by proposing terminology for the international dispersion of families due to migration to [and] from the same source country to different destination countries. Some examples of such dispersed families from family histories are presented and it is suggested that such dispersal was not uncommon in families that emigrated in the past. Analyses of the Sydney student survey data and also of a sample of 1,011 students in Hong Kong are presented to indicate...the prevalence of internationally dispersed families in these two cities. Finally, the discussion focuses on the relevance of migration theory to such dispersal and vice versa."

"This paper details the various steps adopted in the estimation of international emigration from Vietnam by sex and age between the dates of the first two modern censuses conducted in 1979 and 1989. The measurement of Vietnamese emigration is based on existing intercensal projection methods. The procedure is applied to Vietnamese census data to obtain preliminary estimates of Vietnamese intercensal emigration. A separate estimate of intercensal emigration is derived from a combination of data on the Vietnam-born population in the censuses of the United States, Canada, and Australia, three major receiver countries of Vietnamese emigration, and of data on refugee movements collected by the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees. The paper evaluates the two sets of estimates and discusses the relative appropriateness of the data sources for the estimation of intercensal emigration."

Trends in international migration affecting Hungary from 1956 to 1992 are explored. The author notes that over this period, Hungary changed from a country of emigration to a country of migrant destination, with most of the immigrants coming from other Eastern Bloc countries. The author suggests that regional development planning should pay more attention to actual migration trends, rather than using ideal migration patterns.

After several brief sections introducing the topic of European migration and the background of its scholarly study, this dissertation is organized into five parts. The first provides a historical overview of European emigration, immigration, and internal displacements. In the second, the current migratory situation is analyzed separately for each of the European states, distinguishing asylum-seeking from illegal immigration. The third lays out the global framework, discussing developmental and demographic trends in the developing countries as well as urbanization. The fourth posits the de-regionalization of migration as a consequence of increasing global integration; the author sees transcontinental migration from the developing to the industrialized world as a global form of migration from the periphery to the center. In the final section, the development and integration of Europe's recent immigration policies are charted.

Migration and Ethnic Studies: Amsterdam, Netherlands. In Eng.
This study examines migration to the developed world in the context of the growth of international economic systems. In particular, the author notes the contrast between the drive to create border-free economic spaces and the drive for renewed border controls to keep immigrants and refugees out. "The first section discusses some of the main implications of economic internationalization for migration processes and for migration policy. The second section examines the role of the state in the implementation of a global economic system and the transformation of the state as a result of that work of implementation. The third section discusses the general implications of these conditions for immigration policy design and implementation. The final section examines the implications of economic restructuring for an expanded demand for immigrant workers in advanced urban economies."

"Like the 1930s, the 1980s were characterized, in France, by a profound economic, social, and moral crisis....The far right exploited the general mood of anxiety to place immigrants in the center of the debate, blaming the immigrant communities for the country's problems....In the 1930s, the group designated as most dangerous was the Jews; in the 1980s, it was the North Africans. As a result, the extreme right urges that borders be closed, that access to citizenship be restricted, that as many foreigners as possible be turned away. Although racist ideas were commonly expressed in the 1930s, they are no longer openly espoused today, with the exception of certain fringe groups. But, aside from this difference and the origin of the groups perceived as most threatening, the modus operandi of the xenophobic process has varied little in 50 years."

"The overwhelming trend of migratory flows to become globalized, which is manifesting itself in all the major immigrant countries and the planet's main pools of employment, henceforth concerns France and Europe. One of the main challenges confronting these two entities is related to the spatial expansion and rising diversity of their recruitment spaces, and the great difficulty involved in controlling mobility which increasingly tends to function on a global scale. It is essential to revise analytic paradigms based on a strictly national vision which is blind to and repressive of phenomena that are more planetary every day. The global approach will have to combine national management, the functioning of the community's migratory space, relations with increasingly distant and increasingly `foreign' lands of origin, and the globalization of migratory dynamics."

"This study examines how well economic and network theories of immigration explain the choice of SMSA [Standard Metropolitan Statistical Area] destination among Asian immigrant groups. The study looks at the choice of SMSAs on the West Coast of the United States among four different Asian immigrant groups, comparing census data from 1980 and 1990. There are two main goals that drive this study. The first is to compare how well different theoretical models of immigration can be applied to understanding what determines choice of destination within countries by immigrants. The second goal is to see if these models are consistent across different status groups....The results suggest that neither economic nor network models alone adequately explain settlement choice of immigrants. The results instead support the gravity model of migration as the best predictive model of immigrant settlement patterns."

This study is concerned with the cultural aspects of international migration. The first chapter examines some general patterns of migration and how these patterns vary over time. "Such patterns include differences among the migrants themselves, in the circumstances from which they come, and in the changing settings in which their lives evolve." The author then examines the histories of particular migrant groups, including Germans, Japanese, Italians, Chinese, Jews, and Indians. A final chapter sums up the implications of the cultural differences among migrant groups that were identified in the six previous chapters.

"Research into the history of Chinese immigration to Europe has so far basically been conducted on a country-by-country basis and normally restricted to national sources. In order to comprehend early Chinese immigration to Europe, however, a wider approach is necessary with the inclusion of Chinese sources and closer co-operation between Western and Chinese scholars....This article contains a translation of a chapter in the Qingtian County Gazetteer as an example of the information on immigration that can be found in this kind of Chinese local sources. Finally, the information is discussed and, despite some problems concerning the origin and reliability of the Chinese sources, they are still found to provide European researchers with valuable historical information on the Qingtian phenomenon in European immigration history."

An analysis of the resident foreign population in metropolitan France is presented, using data from the 1992 survey on geographical mobility and social assimilation and a number of official sources. The author examines such questions as the impact of immigration on the size and characteristics of the population over the course of the twentieth century, and the number of current French citizens with some foreign blood. Trends in immigration since World War II are described, focusing on the changes resulting from the legislation on migration adopted in 1974. The author also examines trends in refugee migration and the problems associated with the assimilation of immigrants into French society.

"Whereas pull migration [in Europe] has been seen as economically beneficial, there is concern that push migration will accelerate the employment crisis. This article qualifies this view by arguing that migration may erode institutional constraints....A review of empirical studies for Europe concludes that migration was largely beneficial in the past. New econometric investigations suggest that immigration from countries that are targeted for recruitment was strongly driven by business cycle effects (demand-pull) and chain migration (supply-push), but that the processes changed with the halt in recruitment in 1973."

"This paper considers frontier migration to the Ecuador Amazon as a multistage phenomenon, examining the entire migration stream from its origins in highland and coastal locales of Ecuador, to intermediate stops outside and within the Amazon, to final Amazon destinations. The approach is one where models pertaining to regional development, migration, and pioneer activity are treated as complementary to one another and meshed with a qualitative knowledge of place. It is shown that frontier settlement patterns reflect the composite of these models, a maturing space-economy, and the interaction of local characteristics with exogenous circumstances representing national and international contexts."

"Moving beyond traditional theories of migration, this paper considers how actual economic, socio-political, and natural events impacted uprooting of people in Ecuador since the 1950s. Major eras of economic growth and economic devolution are represented by Census data for 1982 and 1990. Through these, individual labor force experiences of migrants and stayers, and gender differentials within each group, are considered. Uprooting of people persists forty to fifty years after events initiating its occurrence, and differentially impacts each population group. Gender differentials are noticeably significant among occupational sectors of employment, less so for economic sectors. Predominance and continual growth of informal activities also is apparent, a trend which impacts women more strongly."

"A World Bank demographer analyzes patterns of migration among Russia's regions from shortly before the break-up of the Soviet Union and the onset of economic reforms through the first five years of independence. The analysis focuses on two large migration streams currently occurring in Russia--the return migration of Russians, as well as Russian speakers, to Russia from the other republics of the former Soviet Union and massive out-migration from the Russian North to the western and southern portions of the country. These migration streams are assessed in terms of both their impacts on current population numbers in Russia's regions and as a basis for projections of population change into the early 21st century."

insights from the microdata of the 1987 National Survey.
Environment and Planning A, Vol. 29, No. 4, Apr 1997. 707-30 pp.
London, England. In Eng.
Microdata from the 1987 National Population Survey are used to analyze internal migration in China in the 1980s. The focus is on the impact of migration policies on rural-urban migration. "There are two main findings. First, although the migration policy resulted in a very low migration level and systematic distortions in migration schedules, its encouragement of downward migrations was very ineffective, whereas its control on rural-to-urban migrations was partially weakened by the strong upward aspirations of rural families awakened by recent economic reform. Consequently, net in-migration contributed substantially to the growth both of city and of town populations. Second, although the level of education had a strong positive effect on the migration propensities both of males and of females in general, it had a strong negative effect on the migration propensities of females at the time of marriage, a finding which suggests that the families at subsistence income level tended to marry their daughters to grooms in other communities in order to reduce the risk of familial income shortfalls."

"This paper uses a two-level nested logit model to explain the inter-stratum (city, town and rural county) and interprovincial migration behaviors of the young adults (aged 17-29) in China during a three-year period (1985-87), based on the micro data of the 1987 National Population Survey. The migration propensity of each person is represented by a departure probability and a destination choice probability. These probabilities are then expressed as functions of personal factors and place attributes. The main findings are that personal factors are of paramount importance in explaining the departure behaviors, and that both departure and destination behaviors responded to market forces in a sensible way, despite government control on territorial movements."

"This article applies a three-level nested logit model to the microdata of the 1990 U.S. census to explain the 1985 to 1990 return and onward interstate migration patterns of the elderly aged 65+ by personal factors and state attributes. The elderly were split into three groups defined by age: 65 to 69, 70 to 74, and 75+. Analysis reveals that both return and onward migrants were sensitive to amenity factors, racial similarity, and the distance decay effect, although return migrants were less affected by the distance decay effect than onward migrants. The motivations for a return or onward migration were also observed to vary with respect to age groups, with amenity effects more important for the young elderly. Several personal characteristics also were found to systematically influence the migration choice process, including level of education and marital status."

"Drawing upon the 1991 Statistics Canada Public Use Micro File (PUMF), this paper describes the nature of the interprovincial migration flows originating within Quebec and arriving in Quebec between 1986 and 1991. Both the overall population and specific personal attributes such as level of education, mother tongue and age are considered in order to determine the demographic impacts of migration on the province of Quebec. Results suggest that migration flows into and out of the province continue a trend observed between 1976-81 and 1981-86, with an overall loss of population through migration. English speaking migrants represented a large proportion of the outmigrants and a small proportion of the inmigrants to Quebec. Quebec must rely upon return migrants as a source of population growth."

"Annual national and sub-national population estimates for Greece since 1981 have been adjusted recently by the National Statistical Service of Greece to take account of the results of the 1991 Census of Population. The rebased population counts have been used in this paper, together with births and deaths data to generate a time series of net migration estimates for the...regions of Greece. These estimates present a very different picture of net migration patterns to that published by Eurostat during the 1980s. Time series of natural change and net migration rates for 1980-92 are outlined and the importance of the net migration component in explaining regional population growth in Greece is quantified. Published migration data from the 1991 Census is not yet available, so the paper contains an analysis of internal migration in Greece using data from the 1981 Census."

The number of relocations from East to West Germany has been steadily decreasing since 1990. The authors posit that this decline is a result of the poor employment conditions now prevailing in West Germany. They indicate that the potential for migration is still high: one quarter of adult East Germans would consider moving to West Germany. The fact that young, qualified persons are the most prone to leave the region should be cause for concern. The main factor in this decision is not the current situation, but expectations for the future. Data on migration potential are drawn mainly from annual socioeconomic panel surveys conducted in West Germany since 1984 and in East Germany since 1990; in 1993, 6,500 private households comprising over 13,000 individuals were surveyed.

Assimilation and attachment in the context of international
migration: the case of guestworkers in Germany. Papers in Regional
Science, Vol. 73, No. 3, Jul 1994. 241-66 pp. Urbana, Illinois. In Eng.
"Immigrants' attachments to home and their assimilation into the host society have been identified as major factors influencing international return migration. This paper provides an empirical analysis of the determinants of attachment and assimilation, with a special focus on the impact of duration of stay. Using survey data on guestworkers in West Germany in 1984 and 1989, the study finds that assimilation increases at a decreasing rate as the duration of stay is extended. The relationship between attachment and length of stay is less strong, but shows a general trend of decreasing attachment levels as guestworkers prolong their stay in Germany. The resulting trends for return migration are characterized by an overall decline in the propensity to return as the duration of stay is extended. However, the rate of decline varies by gender, marital status, and nationality. Overall, the results allude to the importance of distinguishing between short term and long term immigrants."

Data from a survey carried out by the author are used to analyze aspects of rural-urban migration in Bangladesh. The survey comprised 710 migrants and nonmigrants living in Dhaka, Bangladesh. The focus of the analysis is on the motives and conditions affecting the migration of both men and women. The author explores how women migrants cope with the demands and stresses of urban living in unfavorable socioeconomic conditions, and how migration affects the well-being of migrants and their families. Policy implications are also examined.

"The migration flows to and from the four largest Dutch municipalities (Amsterdam, Rotterdam, The Hague and Utrecht) show a number of similarities. During the past few decades internal migration has been characterized by a move away from the large cities, while the much smaller international migration flow had an opposite direction. This has resulted in a net decrease of the total population in the largest cities."

"The number of people that move to, from or within large cities is, in a relative sense, far greater than the corresponding figure for the other parts of the Netherlands. Big city mobility concerns mostly internal migration. The 1995 migration statistics on sections of Rotterdam show dissimilarities between the different sections of the city with respect to composition and intensity of population flows. This article focuses on the differences between two sections of Rotterdam."

The author looks at rural-urban migration in Latin America as a whole, and in Argentina and the province of Tucumán in particular. She describes the negative effect this migration has had on the Argentine city of San Miguel de Tucumán, in that it has given rise to the growth of urban poverty and slum areas.
