Using data from the 1987 census of Cameroon, the authors examine the spatial organization of age and sex structure and migration at the level of Cameroon's 49 departments. They focus on the similarities and differences between contiguous departments at the local level in order to map the regions where demographic similarities and exchange of population are greatest (regional nodes), and the boundaries separating areas of demographic dissimilarity and weak migratory exchange.

The hypothesis that nineteenth-century European immigration to the northern United States delayed the large-scale migration of blacks from the South to the North is examined using state- and city-level data. "The article suggests a Todaro-like interpretation of the Great Migration, which emphasizes the importance of job availability to blacks in determining their expected wages. The combination of mass European immigration and hiring practices that favored white immigrants over blacks may have delayed the Great Migration by decades."

On the basis of the estimation, inverse projection--the latest method in historical demographic research--was made to provide a more accurate estimation of the population that out-migrated from mainland China to Taiwan in the 1946-1949 period. The result was then double-checked through comparison with the 1945-1955 demographic data of Taiwan province."

"The migration system of the Dogon of Sangha (Mali) contains three components: a migration to agricultural lands in the Seno Gondo plain, an internal migration, and an international migration, the two latter being urban. The first of these migrations is an authentic colonizing movement and has to be analyzed in a socio-anthropological perspective, as a reflection of the organization of the extended family and the clan. Intense economic, religious and social exchanges take place between the villages of origin and those in the plain. The urban migrations, whether internal or international, are more individualistic. However, they should not be interpreted uniquely in economic terms, for although they do reflect a desire for personal gain, they are also the expression of a rejection by young people of the traditional social system in which men and elder sons monopolize power to the exclusion of young people and women. Migration is shown to have a heuristic value in revealing the functioning of the social system."

The author examines centralized population registers as data sources for both individual (longitudinal) and aggregate (cross-sectional) studies of mobility. He suggests that because of the extent, coherence, and wealth of their data, they can profitably be used for various combinations of both types of study. As an example, he uses the Belgian national register to answer some questions about spatial mobility in a particular geographic zone.

The author reviews the international migration experience of Germany in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. "Facing migration problems is a new and threatening experience to many Germans. Contemporary public debate has largely chosen to ignore the fact that throughout German history the movement of people across borders and the consequent clash of cultures was not the exception but the norm. It has also been forgotten that many native inhabitants are descendants of foreigners who immigrated to Germany, and that millions of German emigrants were strangers in foreign countries, just as many foreigners today are strangers in the united Germany."

Thus a comparison with U.S. ship lists reveals two different pictures of Portuguese emigration [with regard to] sex ratio, occupations and age distribution. Data obtained point at a larger generalization: sources containing data on legal emigration only do not reflect `true' emigration in countries with important clandestine streams."

"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. Our 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." The authors conclude that "devising immigration policies that are fair as well as sensitive to their environmental, developmental, trade, and foreign-policy implications may prove difficult unless the public sense of economic security increases enough to strengthen what appears to be an increasingly fragile sense of social contract."

"In a country such as the United States, the contribution of net international migration to overall population change overshadows the contribution of natural increase....Some analysts have assumed that if the same number of people leave and enter the country each year, then the effect of net international migration will be zero. This article examines that assumption and shows that it is fallacious. Examining the direct, indirect, total, and negative demographic impacts of zero net international migration through simulations with demographic data, we demonstrate that zero net international migration is not the same and therefore does not have the same demographic results and implications as zero international migration. We conclude that zero net international migration should not be confused with zero international migration."

The authors "find that the official aggregate data on remittances, income and savings provide a highly misleading picture of the actual extent and forms of such flows and their uses. Their work indicates very little support for the remittance decay hypothesis. Instead, data demonstrate that remittance levels do not decline with length of absence away from the migrant's home country and a significant factor for migrants to remit is the accumulation of assets and investment in the home country. These findings open the way for Pacific island governments to increase and manage the flows of remittances to the benefit of their economies."

The authors discuss reasons that "the number of Haitians and of Dominicans of Haitian descent in the Dominican Republic has almost doubled in the past 10-15 years, despite the expulsion order of June 1991 and the fact that, more than ever, migration takes place within a Caribbean-United States context....The presence of 500,000 Haitians and Dominico-Haitians on Dominican soil does not correspond to classical migration dynamics. It reflects the economic and political relations between the two countries, relations of undifferentiation that include the persistence of smuggling between the two countries. Suggesting a figure like this permits a better understanding of the Haitian question, which in turn may help identify the obstacles to a formalization of relations--political differentiation."

Vol. 45, No. 3, Mar 1997. 12-29 pp. Voorburg, Netherlands. In Dut. with
sum. in Eng.
"Net migration [in the Netherlands] has fluctuated strongly during the past decades. In 1983 net migration (including net administrative corrections) was almost zero. In the early 1990s net migration rose to almost 50 thousand per year. In 1994 net migration dropped sharply to a level of 20 thousand, followed by a further decrease in 1995. In 1996 there was a moderate increase. One cause of the strong decline in immigration in the mid-1990s may be the increasingly strict immigration policy. Another explanation of fluctuations in immigration is the business cycle. A regression analysis for the period 1973-1995 shows that there is a negative relationship between immigration of non-Dutch nationals and the unemployment rate in the Netherlands and a positive relationship between emigration and the unemployment rate."

"This paper studies the effects of illegal immigration and the associated expansion of the underground economy on the allocation of resources, commodity prices, and wages of workers, both in the short run (when occupational mobility is restricted) and in the long run (when the skill-composition of the labor force is endogenous). The paper goes on to consider some of the fiscal implications of illegal immigration and the related expansion of underground activity. Effects of sanctions against employers hiring illegal aliens and measures to legalize the status of clandestine foreign workers are also examined." The geographical focus is on developed countries, primarily the United States and Europe.

The economic changes that occurred in Mexico during the 1980s are described and their implications for emigration assessed. The author notes the concentration of economic development and population movement toward the area bordering the United States, and the growing impoverishment of much of the rest of the country, which is leading to either pressure to emigrate or to civil unrest. He observes that the United States has been attempting to limit emigration while economic pressures favoring emigration have been increasing.

We argue that the determinants of English-language proficiency include cultural and other traits that U.S. immigrants acquire either at birth or while growing up in their home countries, the human capital and other endowments they possess at the time they migrate to the United States, and the skills and other experiences they accumulate after their arrival in this country. Based on data from the November 1989 Current Population Survey, our results confirm that both pre- and post-immigration phases of the life cycle contain elements that are associated with how well immigrants to the United States speak English."

"This paper is concerned with the experience of the Federal Republic of Germany with migratory movements. It presents, firstly, quantitative magnitudes and describes some institutional regulations concerning the immigration and remigration of foreign workers, including some remarks on more recent developments. Secondly, an econometric analysis of economic determinants of inflows and outflows is carried out taking into account several legal regulations. Thirdly, simulation experiments with a macroeconometric rationing model may highlight some effects of migration on the German economy."

[U.S.] studies carried out in the 1970s and 1980s produced interesting information as to female work for wages outside the home, but found the census a flawed source for work done by women within their homes. Combination with other nominal sources [has revealed] the role played by women in the organization and maintenance of kin and neighborhood networks. The approach to the Italian diaspora abroad requires the linkage of different nominal sources at origin and in the different places of destination."

International trade in services: a growing trend among highly
skilled migrants with special reference to Asia. Asian and Pacific
Migration Journal, Vol. 5, No. 4, 1996. 367-97 pp. Quezon City,
Philippines. In Eng.
"An essential component of trade in services is cross-border movements of service providers....On the one hand, there are international movements of skilled transients who emigrate for individual reasons in a long term perspective. On the other hand, there are skilled temporary migrants who perform services abroad without the intention or right to settle or seek employment in the host country. This study aims to clarify these differences using the example provided by the Asian Pacific region. Moreover, this study shows that the dynamics of skilled international migration is largely determined by the circulatory movement of skills of international service providers and has emerged as an essential component of economic development strategy of the countries in the region."

"The effects of an inflow of immigrant labour force on unemployment and social welfare are analyzed in a Harris-Todaro economy. It is shown that an inflow of immigrant labour force lowers unemployment, improves the income-distribution and raises the social welfare if there is perfect capital-mobility between the urban sector and the rural sector. But the results will be opposite to these in the non-shiftable capital model."

This study looks at the growing concept of international human rights, as opposed to human rights within nations. In particular, it examines how modern states are handling the transnational challenges posed by international migration. It also addresses the institutional changes taking place within states, international organizations, and nongovernmental entities. After discussing the development of migration policies designed to control international migration, illegal immigration, and guest workers, the author argues that international migration is steadily eroding citizenship, which is the traditional basis for nation-state membership. Increasingly, he notes, rights are being claimed based on residency rather than citizenship, and this trend is strengthening the development of the idea of international human rights. The geographical focus is on Western Europe and the United States.

Current trends in U.S. immigration are compared to the situation in the late nineteenth century, another period of large-scale immigration to the United States. "With respect to immigration...I intend to explore two sets of questions. Why did people migrate to America in the past, and what were the consequences, for them and for American society, once they landed? Why are people migrating to America today, and what might be the consequences, for them and for American society, of their presence in such numbers?" The author concludes with some thoughts on the political and cultural implications of the increasing population of Mexican origin in the southwestern states.

"In the following section of this chapter, we begin by documenting the numbers and characteristics of international migrants to selected developed countries. We next survey some of the economic factors motivating international migration. We find empirical research on the determinants of international migration lags far behind work on the determinants of domestic migration. In light of this, we devote a larger portion of this section to examining how developed countries' regulatory policies affect the composition of their immigrant populations. Section 3 examines the impact of immigration on the receiving country's labor markets....In Section 4, we examine the extent to which immigrants `assimilate' to the receiving country's labor market....Finally, in Section 5, we survey several studies of immigrants' effects on the social welfare system." The primary geographic focus is on the experiences of Australia, Canada, and the United States.

Recent political, economic, and social reforms within China provide those dreaming of a better life in foreign countries the opportunity to leave."

The author analyzes migration from Africa to the developed countries of the north, focusing on the underlying logic and methods of such migration. He suggests that Africans see migration to the northern countries as a survival strategy and as an attempt to integrate themselves into the world economic system. The methods employed by African migrants to circumvent the increasing efforts to limit their numbers are described, with a focus on their use of regulations designed to aid the reunification of families. The author suggests that rich countries may have a moral obligation to allow migration from Africa, since its causes lie in the history of colonialism and the present and past exploitation of the developing countries by those of the north.

Binghamton, New York. In Eng.
"This paper critiques behavioral and geographical explanations of new wave Irish emigration. It suggests that the former traces emigration to the aspirations and social attributes of Irish young adults, thereby locating its causes and consequences in Irish youth enterprise culture. The latter explains emigration in simple geographical terms, attributing it to locational factors and Ireland's peripherality relative to the European Community. This paper adopts a world-system perspective, arguing that Irish emigration can be traced to the peripheral status of the Irish economy, in the global economy....It suggests that world-system theory allows for a political geography of emigration by recognizing the centrality of place to the process of emigration. It also stresses the importance of emigration in the construction and destruction of socio-economic space."

Rather it is a repackaging of arguments and selective earlier data, often out of date or meaningless because of the way that it is selected and manipulated....To substantiate the conclusion...that policymakers, opinion shapers, and the public should shun Simon's argumentation--we will take a detailed look at Simon's deceptions and misrepresentations."

"We present a two-country political economic model of income redistribution with internationally mobile labor. Migration can be exogenous and/or endogenous (i.e., determined by labor income differentials). Political influence is determined by the size and homogeneity of the groups, where the latter can be affected by immigration. We show that immigration can increase the transfers to, and the income of, the mobile group. We also investigate the possibility of migration regulation, tax-transfer policy competition and coordination and, finally, coordination of regulation policies. It is shown that the selection of any of those regimes will depend on the particular distribution of political influence among the relevant social groups in the two countries."

In the period 1990-1994, more than half a million people emigrated from Russia. This trend is analyzed and its consequences for Russia considered.

The implications of these cross-cutting pressures for a sociological understanding of migration are considered throughout, and doubt is cast on the validity of any single overarching perspective."

In order for the current situation to be improved, he stresses the need for cooperation between the governments of both sending and receiving countries, and suggests that helping migrants to return to their countries of origin is preferable to helping them settle permanently in the country of destination. Ways to reduce the motivation to emigrate in the first place are also examined.

The author presents a general analysis of migration trends in Europe from 1945 to 1993, a period during which about 31 million migrants and refugees crossed international borders in Western Europe. "The essence of the account is that the first phase was one of reflux: an ethnic European retreat from colonisation (typified by Germans from Slavic lands, French from North Africa, Dutch from Indonesia, and British from their colonies). The second was influx: worker immigration caused by expanding economies and aging populations (typified by Turks to Germany, Algerians to France, West Indians and Indians to Britain). The third is overflow and refuge: the flight of refugees and asylum seekers into Europe (typified first by Iranians and North Africans fleeing the Islamic revolutions and second by eastern Europeans fleeing the breakup of the former socialist bloc)."

Netherlands. In Eng.
This chapter attempts to combine the literature concerning international trade and international migration into a consistent analytical framework. "Section 2 explains how different trade models account for either substitution or complementarity patterns between labor mobility and commodity trade....In Section 3 we analyze some dissimilarities between capital mobility and labor mobility, which can break down the substitution between the flows of labor and capital driven by the underlying international distribution of relative endowments....Section 4 [presents] a benchmark framework in which all people are treated alike. This framework enables us to characterize the global dispersion of population. Section 5 identifies welfare gains and losses to the major participants in the migration process....Section 6 considers a two-skill model within which we examine the role of wage rigidity in explaining resistance towards inmigration. Section 7 considers the social burden brought by migration onto the modern welfare state, as another important anti-migration force. Section 8 concludes our survey."

M. Culture, race, and the economic assimilation of
immigrants. Sociological Forum, Vol. 12, No. 2, Jun 1997. 233-77
pp. New York, New York. In Eng.
"The economic assimilation of European-origin immigrants is fairly rapid but selectively culture contingent; the economic assimilation of racial minority immigrants is less rapid and less culture contingent. Regression analysis of survey data examines occupational status and earnings effects of eight ethnic attachments among men and women in seven ethnic and racial minorities in mainstream and enclave employment in Toronto (N=1,792), controlling for foreign and domestically acquired human capital. Assimilationist pressures that the survey showed to be widely perceived may apply more to Europeans than to racial minorities. Economic assimilation is affected when `forgiveness' is most pronounced: very selectively for European immigrants and universally for racial minorities treated as `foreign', presumably based on skin color, regardless of specific culture, identity, behaviors, or network affiliations."

Household migration in the Southern Cone: the case of
Paraguay. Applied Economics, Vol. 28, No. 1, Jan 1996. 87-95 pp.
London, England. In Eng.
"The phenomenon of individual migration from Paraguay to Argentina is examined. This work differentiates itself from the substantial literature that already exists on Latin American migration in three important ways. First, it focuses particular attention on the issue of urban-urban as compared to rural-rural or rural-urban migration. Second, the data examined are derived from household interviews rather than from national censuses. The database for the study is a set of over 1,200 interviews conducted with Paraguayan families from September 1983 to May 1984. Half of the sample consists of families residing in Asunción, Paraguay and half of families residing in Buenos Aires. A one-equation logistic regression model is specified that discriminates between the two samples as a function of demographic and occupational variables."

The invisible community: undocumented Polish workers in
Athens. New Community, Vol. 22, No. 2, Apr 1996. 321-33 pp.
Abingdon, England. In Eng.
"This article describes the development of an economic migration from Poland to Greece and the creation of a migrant community in Athens. It presents the development of a new migration route by political immigrants. It then describes how the Polish political emigrants heading for Greece in the mid-1980s established the pillar institutions which were inherited by the Polish undocumented workers who have followed, and which have served the latter well. The article proceeds to highlight the work milieu of the Polish undocumented workers in Athens, and discusses the role played by the `Polish church', i.e., the Roman Catholic church to which Poles were given access. It concludes by considering the future prospects of this migration and of the Polish migrant community in Greece."

"This paper is part of a larger project investigating the production and regulation of North African immigrants in the greater Paris automobile industry. Its aims are twofold. First, to reverse the emphasis placed on immigrants in the receiving countries and to (re-)explore the historical production of Algerian emigration into metropolitan industry, more specifically within the automobile industry....Second, in adopting an `articulation of modes of production' (AMOP) narrative as an alternative to other Eurocentric approaches, the first part of this paper emphasizes the contradictory layering of various modes which have produced an Algerian colonial diaspora. The latter half of the paper argues that the history of post-independence Algeria confirms that emigration was reinforced through a complex neocolonial relationship during a period of rapid acceleration of Algerian migration to France."

Immigration in the world economy. [Die Immigration in der

"Immigration is at least partly an outcome of the actions of the governments and major private economic actors of the developed countries. The case of Japan is of interest here because it allows us to capture the intersection of economic internationalization and immigration in its inception....This paper argues that [Japan's] new immigration is part of the globalisation of [its] economy. Japan is a major presence in a regional Asian economic system where it is the leading investor, foreign aid donor, and exporter of consumer goods (including cultural products). The new immigration to Japan is not unrelated to these processes of internationalization. Internationalization provides a context within which bridges are built with the countries of origin of potential emigrants and internationalization contributes to make the Japanese economy more porous, particularly so in the case of large cities."

The first one incorporates migration costs as a constraint, the second one considers factor specificity, and the third one examines the fact that the most protected sectors in a number of reforming LDCs are labor intensive. The results, especially those of the first scenario, suggest that the impact of NAFTA may very well be to increase migration rather than to reduce it."

The author examines the contemporary Norwegian media debate on immigration and presents several examples illustrating the difference between an analytical and utopian approach to the issues. "Examples of analytical antagonism, not acceptable to utopians, are the contradiction between the idea of a `multicultural society' and specific cultural conditions for a common community, between claiming full integration of immigrants and at the same time full respect for an alien culture, and certain assumptions about immigrant culture as harmonious expression of the interests of all immigrants. When the program for full integration fails, this is often explained as an effect of assumed racist attitudes in the population. Contemporary radical mass mobilization against racism and fascism may possibly disguise public attention to more real totalitarian challenges to our civilization."

Emigration from the countries of Eastern and Central Europe is analyzed over the period from 1939 to 1989. The countries considered include Albania, Bulgaria, Czechoslovakia, Yugoslavia, Poland, Romania, Hungary, the Soviet Union, and East Germany. "The aim of the book is to present characteristics, size and dynamics of changes in international movements from the countries of Central and Eastern Europe to selected countries of continental and overseas immigration, starting from the outbreak of World War II till the late eighties (1989), with the particular emphasis on changes in migratory movements taking place in the last years of the decade analysed. Emigration to capitalist countries only is analysed, whereas movements within the former socialist countries are omitted." There are chapters on theoretical aspects of migration, the psychosocial aspect of migration theory, refugee movements, migration flows, and migrant characteristics.

Current and possible future trends in emigration from Poland are analyzed using data from a recent survey of migration intentions and the characteristics of potential and actual emigrants. Three alternative scenarios are considered, based on different assumptions concerning economic developments in Poland, and estimates of total emigration varying from 1 to 3 million for the period 1991-2010 are presented. The author notes that emigrants tend to be better off materially, have a stronger desire for personal happiness, and have less strong feelings about their native country than nonmigrants. It is concluded that emigration, though substantial, will not reach catastrophic levels, and that economic developments in Poland's private sector should create job opportunities that will reduce the outflow of better qualified, younger workers.

Reasons for this widespread emigration are discussed, and possible policy options are considered.

"The post-Communist countries of Poland, Hungary, [and] the Czech and Slovak Republics have become a buffer zone between East and West. In this article we analyse the way in which this occurs in terms of migration in and out of the region. Our analysis focuses upon the emerging role which this region plays in relation to other parts of Western and Eastern Europe and the way in which economic and political developments there have encouraged particular forms of migration. We attempt to build a picture of some of the different kinds of migration taking place in relation to the social and ethnic characteristics of migrants. The article concludes that these movements are better understood as part of the mobility and circulation of people rather than as one-way migration."

The method chosen covers public monetary transfers as well as the supply of goods and services by the government (real transfers). Social security insurance, redistribution through taxes, infrastructure investment (club goods) and immaterial goods such as the legal system (public goods) are thus covered."

At the same time, the book also seriously evaluates the concerns of human rights advocates searching for greater global social justice and protecting those who flee persecution, violence, and poverty. Finally, [it] considers the ways in which movement of people across international boundaries is changing our understanding of the meaning of sovereignty."

"In this study, I consider variables associated with an individual's most recent move into his or her current residence as predictors of neighborhood attachment. Using the 1978-1979 Seattle Community Attachment Survey, I find that elements of the mobility experience such as an individual's past history of migration, the motivations for moving, the amount of time involved in the move, and the distance traveled during the move have an effect on short and long-term neighborhood attachment patterns independent of residential stability and investment predictors. The findings imply that psychosocial factors such as familiarity with the environment, increased premove exposure to the new environment, and perceived control during instances of transition have some impact on individuals' postmove attitudes and behaviors, and suggest that researchers should look beyond traditional `types of people' explanations of urban neighborhood attachment."

The results of a study on the relations between migration and agriculture are presented. The study covered eight villages in four different provinces of China. "The village studies suggest that it is possible to identify a range of conditions in which migration has come to variously supplement, subsidize or substitute for village agriculture. Indeed they suggest that migration is a supplement to agriculture and non-agriculture activities in richer regions, a subsidy for agriculture and non-agriculture activities in mid-income regions, and a substitute for agriculture in poor and remote regions. In all the villages studied the farmers themselves have concluded that agriculture is an unprofitable, unattractive and even redundant economic activity."

Underutilized tabulations from the 1989 census and national statistical data on characteristics of provinces were explored to gain insights into the roles of development in interprovincial migration within a context of institutional intervention. The overall results of OLS regression indicate that more developed provinces attracted higher volumes of inmigrants, whereas less developed provinces produced more outmigrants, other things being equal. Most of the migrants, especially females, moved to more urbanized and industrialized areas, regardless of their origin home provinces....The study results suggest the importance of interpreting population movement in Vietnam within the broader context of its current transition to a market economy."

"Based on the argument that values and expectations underlie behavioral motives, this study explores the determinants of migration-related values and expectations, and whether they are intervening factors in explaining intentions to move among residents of rural northeast Thailand. Data from the 1992 National Migration Survey of Thailand identify four migration-related value-expectancy dimensions: income, affiliation, stimulation, and comfort. Logistic regression analysis shows that landownership and being married are associated with higher expectations, while a diversified village economy, a village economy development program, and a younger and extended household structure are associated with lower expectations of attaining valued goals in the local rural village. The analysis also shows that value-expectancy concepts are only partial intervening explanations for intentions to move or stay."

An analysis of internal migration in Kenya over the course of the 1980s is presented using data from the censuses of 1979 and 1989. In view of the problems concerning the quality of census data, particularly in the 1989 census, the author uses indirect methods to estimate migration at the district level. "The analysis of net migration not only puts forward some weaknesses in the last census, particularly an underevaluation of the population which varies according to the district, but also provides information on the migration processes involved in Kenya. New types of migration appeared in the 80s: return migration at young age, and settlement migration, involving whole households, towards less and less hospitable areas."

Netherlands. In Eng.
This chapter examines the literature on the causes and consequences of internal migration in developed countries. It considers such questions as who migrates, where such migrants come from and where are they going, when they migrate, and what consequences result. The impact of unemployment on the migration of both the unemployed and those seeking new jobs is emphasized. The author also suggests that factors other than earnings, such as location-specific amenities, tax structures, and leisure, need to be taken into account in the analysis of such migration. The subject of return migration is also addressed. Finally, the relations between migration and the occurrence of demographic events, such as the birth and aging of children, changes in marital status, and retirement, are examined.

Moreover, this methodology permits an examination of the importance of natural and man-made hazards in migration decisions--factors that have not been extensively studied as determinants of migration. The specific application is to the location of the U.S. nuclear waste repository at Yucca Mountain, Nevada. Empirical results suggest that the repository may influence employment-related migration, but probably not retirement migration."

Married women experience a large reduction in personal income upon moving because of their reduced employment rates, which reflects their status as `tied' movers. The findings of lower returns to migration compared with studies using data from the 1960s and the 1970s reflects fundamental changes in economic motivations for migrating."

"[This] contribution is...aimed at the age structure of migration movement, based on the relationship between the district of birth and the district of the current place of residence. The objective of the contribution is, first and foremost, to document the interdistrict variability of the age structure of migrants and the net migration, depending on age. Another objective...is to prove that the assessment of the age structure of migration in its regional variability can be used to define the basic evolutionary migration stages and turning points. A typology of Czech districts with respect to their long-term migration development is one of the results of the contribution."

C. Independent and linked migrants: determinants of
African American interstate migration. Growth and Change, Vol. 28,
No. 3, Summer 1997. 309-34 pp. Malden, Massachusetts. In Eng.
"Through kinship and other links to destinations, many African American interstate migrants in the United States join other people in destination households. These `linked' migrants contrast to `independent migrants' who move as individuals or intact groups and set up their own households at the destination. Using U.S. Census Public Use Micro Sample data, this paper first shows that, in the 1985-90 period, about 45 percent of all Black interstate migrants were independent, compared to 38 percent who were linked to housing at the destination and 17 percent who moved into group quarters. Second, a multinomial logit model, incorporating individual and state-level variables, is specified that contrasts the determinants of independent and linked migration.... It is concluded that the understanding of Black migration must take into account a variety of factors beyond traditional labor market conditions, including links to the destination and individual housing circumstances."

Internal migration in developing countries. In: Handbook of
population and family economics, edited by Mark R. Rosenzweig and Oded
Stark. 1997. 721-98 pp. Elsevier Science Publishers: Amsterdam,
Netherlands. In Eng.
This chapter first reviews the recent literature on internal migration in developing countries, including studies examining relevant theory, empirical evidence, and policy experience. "The balance of the introduction is taken up with a brief review of some basic concepts and patterns of internal migration. The remainder of the chapter is then divided into four. Section 2 is about the causes of migration--earnings opportunities and job search, information and financing, family strategies and the contextual setting, and displaced persons. Section 3 takes up the economic consequences of internal migration--the direct and indirect effects of rural emigration on rural production, the overall effects upon national product in the light of various market pathologies, and the much disputed consequences for income inequality. In the light of the foregoing sections, Section 4 [reviews] the literature on policy experiences, and Section 5 offers a few closing thoughts."

The influence of demographic and economic cycles on the migration propensities given in the migration age schedule is examined. Following a review of the relevant literature, the author examines "the influence of generation size on the migration intensities seen in a cohort (longitudinal) migration schedule and that of economic conditions on the intensities of a period (cross-sectional) migration schedule. [The author also specifies] a model that incorporates both cohort and period effects in order to understand their relative importance in shaping the migration schedule. Empirical analyses based on [U.S.] Current Population Survey data for the 1949-1993 period reveal that the level of the migration schedule is sensitive to demographic and economic cycles, with the effect of generation size being relatively more influential."

F. Measuring spatial focusing in a migration system.

Maryland. In Eng.
"Equality indexes used in other geographical contexts may be used to gauge the degree of spatial focusing in an entire migration system or within the gross in- and out-migration fields of specific regions. They provide useful indicators of overall shifts in the patterns of interregional migration and can help give insight into the population redistributive roles played by specific regions. Perhaps the most common equality index used to measure income distribution is the Gini coefficient, yet it appears almost never to have been applied in migration research. In this paper we set forth a variety of Gini indexes to be used for different migration analyses and illustrate their application with recent data on U.S. interstate movements. We argue that the Gini index provides some singularly useful insights that differ from those afforded by other measures more commonly found to date in the migration analyst's toolkit."

Jews and whites in the United States. Demography, Vol. 34, No. 2,
May 1997. 213-23 pp. Silver Spring, Maryland. In Eng.
"Independently conducted yet complemetary sets of data from the 1970/1971 and 1990 National Jewish Population Surveys and the U.S. censuses of the same years were used to analyze changes in the internal migration of Jews and whites during the periods 1965-1970 (1971) and 1985-1990. Interstate lifetime and five-year migration rates among Jews increased to levels significantly surpassing those of whites. Adjusting Jewish migration rates for the educational achievement of their white counterparts did not have much of an effect on lifetime migration or on the recent migration of the 1970/1971 Jewish population; however, it accounted meaningfully for the migration propensities of Jews in the period 1985-1990. These findings suggest that socioeconomic status has begun to play a larger role in promoting different migration patterns than in promoting ethnic group differences. Further, the direction of Jewish migrations followed those of whites (i.e., from the Northeast and Midwest to the South and West); and due to their higher migration rates, Jews have considerably narrowed the regional distribution differences between themselves and whites. I interpret these results as evidence of the weakening role of ethnicity in present-day America."

International Migration Review, Vol. 31, No. 2, Summer 1997. 249-93 pp.
Staten Island, New York. In Eng.
"The purpose of this article is to place Chinese labor migration from agriculture within the context of the literature on labor mobility in developing countries by comparing it to undocumented Mexican migration to the United States. The similarities fall within three general areas: the migration process, the economic and social position of migrants at their destination, and the agrarian structure and process of agricultural development that has perpetuated circular migration. The last section of the article draws upon these similarities, as well as differences between the two countries, to generate predictions concerning the development of labor migration in China."

The paper first reviews actual and prospective redistribution of the older population, with regard to interregional shifts of population as well as to changes in concentration along an urban-rural continuum. Following these macroscopic elements, the paper then moves to a presentation of the results of two ex post facto surveys (one taken in the USA and the other in Germany) of recent older movers in order to compare the motivations expressed for the move and the present degree of satisfaction with it. The concluding section considers the implications of redistribution at both geographic levels and of mover satisfaction in light of political developments as they are presently unfolding in Europe."

"This paper (1) develops a theoretical model of refugee migration that builds on existing research in early warning and preventive diplomacy, and (2) empirically tests this model in order to assess the role played by generalized structural factors in the formation of forced migration." The data come from the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) and the U.S. Committee for Refugees (USCR). "The results suggest that, first, measures of institutional human rights violations have weaker predictive power than do measures of generalized violence. Second, civil wars with foreign military interventions are more important in producing large refugee populations and prolonged migrations than are civil wars without outside influence. Third, ethnic rebellion is important as a cause of small refugee migrations, but cannot significantly predict mass exodus. Finally, economic and intervening variables have little impact on predicting refugee migration."

"The San Francisco Bay Area has taken on a distinct polycentric metropolitan form, with three tiers of hierarchical employment centers encircling downtown San Francisco....In this paper it is found that polycentric development is associated with differentials in suburban and urban commute trip times: commute trips made by employees of suburban centers are shorter in duration than commute trips made by their counterparts in larger and denser urban centers. Differentials were even greater, however, with respect to commuting modal splits. Lower density, outlying employment centers averaged far higher rates of drive-alone automobile commuting and insignificant levels of transit commuting....The effects of housing availability and prices on the residential locational choices of those working both in urban and in suburban employment centers are also investigated...."

"This paper presents a life-cycle model where migrants determine re-migration and consumption simultaneously in a stochastic environment. Whether precautionary savings of migrants are above or below those of natives is ambiguous in general--the sign depends on the risk in host- and home-country labor markets and on the correlation of labor market shocks. Furthermore, the effect of an uncertain environment on migration and re-migration plans cannot be unambiguously signed for the general case. It depends on the size of the wage differential as well as the relative risk the migrant exhibits in the two labor markets."

Decongestion of the Paris urban area is responsible for nearly three quarters of new suburban dwellers....The occupational distribution of recent in-migrants to the suburbs also varied significantly in different geographical areas and selection effects have reinforced the existing specificity of various sectors."

Field research was conducted in several regions of origin--Kursk, Kostroma, Orel and Vologda--and among Muscovites who had migrated from these regions. The study found that often the living conditions in Moscow were worse than those the migrants had experienced in the rural home villages. Yet the interviewers found that migrants did not want to return. The paper then examines the sociological profile of possible return migrants, concluding that any probability of such reverse flow would depend on improving health, education and social infrastructure in the rural areas."

"This article considers the situation regarding rural-urban migration within Ghana, suggesting that migration has the effect of precipitating major social and behavioural change. The nature of Ghanaian urbanisation is examined together with the motivational factors that cause many to leave their rural homes. A distinction is made between those `committed urbanites' who readily adapt to urban life and the `situational urbanites' who experience greater problems in adjustment to the city. Following this discussion certain policy implications are then examined, including that of fertility control, models of development and protection of the status of the rural communities in the face of a `brain drain' to urban areas."

"Since the mid-1980s, urban migrants have emerged as a new status group in Chinese society. This study examines the complexity of urban migration from the angle of public policy with the aim of presenting an overview of the current situation regarding urban migrants. The focus of the paper is on the challenges that migrants pose to the state and civil society and the policy responses adopted during the period from the late 1980s to 1993. The paper first analyzes the problems and contributions brought by urban migrants. Second, using Guangdong as an example, the paper examines the measures taken by state agencies and their effectiveness. The final section discusses the problems and prospects related to urban migration. The paper concludes that current policy is plainly inadequate and that urban migrants are still relegated to the margins of Chinese society. It is argued that unless their claims are recognized, urban migrants are likely to remain a thorn in governance and a threat to social stability."
