Robin. Improving distance estimates between areal units in
migration models. Geographical Analysis, Vol. 29, No. 2, Apr 1997.
93-107 pp. Columbus, Ohio. In Eng.
"There are many methods of modeling migrant flows within a set of areal units, but it is common in most to incorporate some measure of distance as an explanatory variable. These distances are effectively meant to represent the typical distance between pairs of areas that would be traveled by potential migrants. They are usually calculated between population-weighted centroids derived for each zone. It is argued here that this method of calculating distance is biased and that the zonal system used will influence the final model parameters that are intended to describe the underlying migration process.... This paper describes an alternative method of calculating these distances which reduces this bias."

The author investigates the increase of population mobility in Indonesia during the past two decades. "There is no attempt here to provide a comprehensive review of all population movement in Indonesia but to focus on two types of movement which have increased greatly in significance in recent years--rural to urban mobility and international labour migration. Recent developments in these types of population movement in Indonesia are discussed and some of their causes and consequences addressed in the context of the rapid economic and social change occurring in Indonesia."

Primary, return and onward migration in the U.S. and Canada: is
there a difference? Papers in Regional Science, Vol. 76, No. 2,
Apr 1997. 175-98 pp. Urbana, Illinois. In Eng.
"Using microdata sources available from the U.S. Census Bureau and Statistics Canada, this paper contrasts primary, return and onward migration in the two countries. These classifications are based on information on the region (state or province) of birth and region of residence at the start and end of the census period. To study the propensities to make a primary, return or onward migration, rates are calculated...and compared with previous census periods. Analysis reveals that both countries have experienced similar temporal patterns, and that primary, return and onward migration patterns tend to be similar. Analysis using a nested logit model further reveals that return and onward migration in both countries can be similarly explained." Data are from the Public Use Micro Sample (PUMS) for the United States and the Public Use Micro File (PUMF) for Canada.

"The world is divided into a series of functionally integrated development zones which are identified, not simply on the basis of their level of development, but also through their spatial patterns and historical experience of migration. [The author]...stresses the importance of migration in discussing regional, rather than simply country, differences. These variations in mobility are placed within the context of a global hierarchy, although regional, national and local cultural and social conditions are certainly not ignored...."

Factors contributing to the growing potential for large-scale migration to Europe from the Mediterranean countries in Northern Africa and Western Asia are analyzed. These include a high rate of population growth, a growth in the potential labor force, low levels of development, and perceptions of the differences in wealth between the two regions. Added to this, the author suggests that the uncertain political situation in many of the countries of origin and the weakening demographic trends in the countries of destination increase the pressures for migration. The author concludes that a new approach to these problems, integrating population policies and development strategies, is required.

The third assesses the demographic and economic contexts within which these flows have occurred. The fourth argues that a combined view of trends in migration flows, racial/ethnic composition, interracial and interethnic marriage patterns, and economic and labor market outcomes makes it possible to discern not only why recent immigration patterns have come to be negatively perceived but also why they may have come to be seen as violating the prevailing sense of social contract in the United States."

171 pp. Greenwood Press: Westport, Connecticut. In Eng.
This is a study of recent immigration to Germany, with the focus on the extent to which immigration has served as a catalyst for political change. Chapter 1 traces the history of immigration to Germany and discusses the number and characteristics of immigrants. Chapter 2 examines the political effects of German return migration to Germany following World War II. Chapter 3 uses opinion polls and survey data to show how questions about non-German immigrants have become more politically relevant over time. Chapter 4 examines the impact of immigration on the German political system. Chapter 5 looks at the reaction of established parties both to the violence directed against foreigners and to the electoral success of the New Right, and Chapter 6 shows that, despite the decline in New Right support, the established parties still have not solved the political difficulties associated with immigration.

This study examines migration from Northern Africa to the European Union in the context of the growing concern in Europe about the potential for rising levels of such migration, and the need for policies in response to those concerns. The author examines trans-Mediterranean migration in its political context, and makes clear that there are no easy ways to manage and control such international movements. She does, however, suggest that current policies in receiving countries are inadequate in that they are limited to attempts to impose controls on immigration and to provide financial aid to developing countries as a measure of compensation for such controls. The need for better policies that involve both sending and receiving countries is stressed.

This is a general study on the phenomenon of large-scale immigration and its implications in the modern world. The authors describe the global situation concerning immigration, the immigration statistics relevant to Italy, the requirements of a multicultural society, the general guidelines for a policy to make immigrants welcome, and the prospects for realizing such policies. The principal theme of the study is that immigration presents an opportunity rather than a threat, provided that migrations can be controlled and exploited to the mutual benefit of both the migrants and the receiving country.

Among recent arrivals, defined as those who reported they came to stay in the quinquennium preceding the census, a large number were resident in the United States five years before the census date. Furthermore, the proportion of recent arrivals present in the United States five years before the census increased between 1975-1980 and 1985-1990.... Generally, in both the 1975-1980 and 1985-1990 cohorts, those resident in the United States five years before the census have significantly less schooling and lower incomes than those who were abroad."

California: San Francisco, California. In Eng.
An attempt is made to provide estimates of net annual undocumented immigration to California for the period 1980-1993. The author uses a residual method based on analysis of the annual components of population change to prepare the estimates. The results indicate that there were considerable fluctuations in the flow of migrants over time, and that these changes were related to changes in the state's economy and to policy interventions, such as the Immigration Reform and Control Act of 1986. They suggest that, in the 1980s alone, the state gained over 6 million new residents, and that between 22 and 31 percent of these newcomers were illegal immigrants.

1992. [ix], 220 pp. Dundurn Press: Toronto, Canada/Oxford, England. In
This book presents a history of immigration to Canada from the sixteenth century to the present day. Its purpose is "to describe briefly the different kinds of immigrants who have settled in this country over the centuries and the immigration policies that have helped to define the character of immigration in various periods. Special attention will be paid to some of the key policy-makers and moulders of public opinion who have helped to shape these policies. And, because racism frequently plays a role in the Canadian immigration story, it will also be discussed, as will the effectiveness of various policies in achieving Canada's immigration goals. The last part of the book will touch on some of the realities of the 1990s that influence the framing of immigration policy and try to make some sense of the current debate about this country's immigration and multiculturalism policies."

This is a study of contemporary illegal migration from China to the United States, with a focus on the recent increase in migration from Fujian province. The author suggests that the problem of illegal migration can only be understood in the context of the underlying supply-and-demand principle enshrined in the traditional U.S. economic system, and that the solution lies not in tightening immigration controls but in changing the economic conditions in the United States that give rise to the demand for cheap immigrant labor. The need to reduce the potential for conflict between new immigrants and the native labor force is stressed.

The author examines demographic and economic aspects of international migration in Poland. "Increase of absorption of employment is caused by emigration of [the] productive population and by emergence of [a] shortage of [available jobs]. Migration of [the] work force is seen as a profitable process: a part of earned money and goods was transferred to workers' families in their countries of origin."

Editorial Trotta: Madrid, Spain. In Spa.
This work consists of a detailed study of four distinct immigrant groups in Spain: migrants from Gambia, the Dominican Republic, Cape Verde, and Morocco. The first chapter deals with the situation in the four countries of immigrant origin, examining the impact of migration on the sending communities. Next, the author studies the social organization of immigration and migration networks. The process of assimilation into the workforce in Spain is then analyzed, with separate consideration given to domestic service, travelling vendors, agriculture, and mining. A final chapter examines policy issues and some of the theories and ideologies relevant to the immigration debate.

Mexico. Social Science Quarterly, Vol. 79, No. 1, Mar 1998. 1-34
pp. Austin, Texas. In Eng.
The impact of international migration on economic development in the country of origin is examined with data on 30 Mexican communities and U.S. destination areas using event history analysis. The results indicate that the receipt of U.S. earnings by households and communities significantly increases the odds of business formation and productive investment. "The fact that migrant-owned businesses are generally small retail ventures that generate little employment reflects generalized conditions of opportunity in Mexico, not a debility resulting from the migration process itself. U.S. migration is an important factor promoting business formation by migrants and nonmigrants alike." Comments are included by Jorge A. Bustamante (pp. 21-2), John M. Hart (pp. 23-5), and Philip Martin (pp. 26-32), together with a response from the authors (pp. 33-4).

This study of immigration to California has two main purposes. "It goes back to 1960, before the current era of large-scale immigration began, and looks systematically at how immigration has interacted with other demographic and economic trends over the subsequent decades to affect the state. It also examines how immigrants from different countries of origin are faring in their pursuit of the American dream. Finally, it identifies the challenges that California faces in integrating its newcomers and their children and how federal and state policies might maximize the benefits and minimize the costs of immigration in the future."

"In the past, ethnic enclaves have functioned as homogeneous residential areas providing support and comfort to newly arrived immigrants. A new form of urban village is increasingly serving commuting immigrants who live in integrated residential neighbourhoods. Little Saigon, a Vietnamese commercial belt in Southern California, serves as a model of this emerging form. Participant observation and interviews with users of Little Saigon and other ethnic commercial belts in Southern California reveal that these areas provide users with places where they can experience the sense of community previously provided by ethnic ghettos."

Penguin: New York, New York/London, England. In Eng.
This book presents a portrait of the immigrant community in the United States, concentrating on immigrants from developing countries and their contributions to their country of destination. Rather than attempting to assess the costs and benefits of immigration from a macroeconomic perspective, the author looks at how immigration fosters certain business strategies and synergies. He examines how the twin promises of human freedom and market opportunities in the United States combine to attract talent from overseas, and how that talent is having a positive effect on the lives of Americans in general. The author suggests that the solution to the problem of immigration is to encourage the assimilation of immigrants into the American mainstream as quickly as possible rather than to build barriers against immigration.

Following a historical review of the emigration of intellectuals from Russia, the author analyzes factors associated with the current brain drain. These include the lack of government spending on fundamental science, research, and education, and the low salary levels of scientists. The seriousness of the present situation, particularly the emigration of younger scientists, is discussed.

California Press: Berkeley, California/London, England. In Eng.
This book presents an analysis of the characteristics of the current immigrant population in the United States. Having briefly examined the origins of immigration, the authors identify four main types of immigrants, which are labor migrants, professional immigrants, entrepreneurial immigrants, and refugees and asylum seekers. They "delineate the basic contours of contemporary immigration by focusing on major aspects of the adaptation experience. The emphasis throughout is on diversity in both the immigrants' origins and their modes of incorporation into American society. The typology outlined...serves as the basic organizing framework as we follow immigrants through their location in space, their strategies for economic mobility, their efforts at learning a language and a new culture, their decision to embrace the country as naturalized citizens, and their struggle to raise their children in America and, inevitably, as Americans."

Recent trends in emigration from Turkey are explored. The author notes that Turkish emigrants have developed substantial networks that are both political and religious in nature, and extend over a wide geographical area centering on Germany. The various ethnic and religious subgroups of Turkish emigrants are supported in their countries of residence by these interconnected networks. In the light of this complicated scenario, the author questions the relevance of the concept of a diaspora to the study of emigration from Turkey.

This is an analysis of emigration from Spain during the period 1880-1930. The author places this emigration in the context of migration trends in Europe as a whole, and then identifies and describes regional differences in emigration patterns within Spain itself. The development of migration chains and networks is identified as a critical factor affecting the regional characteristics of migration. Emigration is also shown to be an essential ingredient of family survival in regions where landholdings were generally small. The author also notes that the growth of large cities within Spain eventually provided an alternative to emigration.

"The idea of an economically integrated Arab world has been part of the region's political discourse for decades. While the idea is compelling to many, the Middle East is, in some ways, one of the least integrated regions in the world, despite decades of attempts to give economic meaning to the notion of Arab unity. The major exception is labor mobility where intra-regional migration flows have been extensive in recent decades. Remittances from migrant labor now exceed the value of regional trade in goods as well as official capital flows. This paper explores the characteristics of economic integration in the Middle East and analyzes why labor flows have been the major channel through which intra-regional economic ties have been forged."

Migration to Israel: the mythology of "uniqueness"
International Migration, Vol. 36, No. 1, 1998. 3-26 pp. Geneva,
Switzerland. In Eng. with sum. in Fre; Spa.
"The article explores the widespread assumption that immigration to Israel is a unique phenomenon which differs structurally from migration to other places. This assumption stems from the view that migrants to other destinations generally leave a place they consider home to find a new home. In terms of the Israeli construction, Jews have been `strangers' in their countries of origin and seek to find a new home by means of migration.... The article considers evidence that shows that in the 1980s and 1990s, Israel is becoming more like other Western countries which admit large numbers of refugees, asylum seekers, foreign workers, persons seeking family unification and diaspora migrants."

"This article examines relationships between immigration, farm employment, poverty, and welfare use in 65 towns and cities with populations ranging from 1,000 to 20,000 in 1990 in the major agricultural areas of California. It tests the hypothesis that expanding labor-intensive agriculture creates a negative externality by drawing large numbers of workers from Mexico, offering many of them poverty-level earnings, and increasing public assistance use in rural towns. Econometric findings reveal a circular relationship between farm employment and immigration. An additional 100 farm jobs are associated with 136 more immigrants, 139 more poor residents, and 79 more people receiving welfare benefits in rural towns. An additional 100 immigrants, in turn, are associated with 37 more farm jobs. Most of the impact of farm employment on poverty is indirect, through immigration."

"This paper examines trends and cross-national variation in the active demand for immigration to the United States in the period of 1984-1993, using data from the Visa Office and various other sources. The analysis is restricted to legal immigration in numerically limited categories. The results show that the total number of active immigrant visa applicants steadily increased in the aggregate and in each of the preference categories. Moreover, the active demand for immigration was highly skewed, with the majority of applications coming from a dozen countries: Mexico, the Philippines, India, mainland China, South Korea, Taiwan, Vietnam, the Dominican Republic, El Salvador, Jamaica, Hong Kong, and Pakistan. Most of these highly-backlogged countries displayed a significant increase in the growth rate of demand for immigration. The paper also shows a substantial cross-national variation in the active demand for immigration and explores its structural determinants. The regression results indicate that the level of economic development in sending countries and U.S. economic and cultural relations with sending countries play important roles in the determination process. Policy implications of the findings are also discussed."

Soziologie, Vol. 38, No. 1, 1997. 104-38 pp. Cambridge, England. In
The author explores the potential negative effects of large-scale immigration on the democratic functioning of modern European countries, whose political systems were generally not set up to take such migration into account. These effects could include a disruption of the traditional balance between business and labor, the weakening of social welfare, and increased burdens on educational systems. The extent to which it is possible for a democratic state to control immigration flows is considered. In the author's opinion, the fear that immigrant communities will bring a new wave of fundamentalism into Europe, disrupting the secular character of European institutions and threatening the homogeneity of the political culture, is not justified. She argues that bringing immigrants into the political process as soon as possible will minimize the likelihood of serious problems.

The results suggest that military redeployment was of considerable importance in explaining the patterns of rural in-migration in England and Wales between 1980 and 1981. Little evidence of a major redistribution of population from the largest urban centres to the rural periphery was identified."

"In this paper, we use the 1991 Special Migration Statistics to analyse inter-ward flows in the British county of Hereford and Worcester. New modelling techniques...based on the Poisson distribution are used in this research which partially overcome the under-dispersion problem resulting from modelling zero and very small flows.... Analysis at this scale provides the potential for more detailed generalization about migration processes such as suburbanization, counterurbanization, intra-urban mobility, rural depopulation and the relationship between housing and demographic change at the local level. Unlike migration flows over long distances, which are often employment related, these flows are primarily motivated by residential requirements and housing type and growth are identified as key variables in the interpretation of these migration patterns."

The main conceptual and operative aspects of the model are presented, the design and model building process is explained, the results of the calibration analysis are examined and a simulation exercise of migration policy evaluation is undertaken. The operative migration model presented in this paper seems useful to analyze and evaluate numerous migration policies, which suggest that spatial interaction theory offers a promising conceptual and operative foundation to analyze internal migration flows in Mexico."

This study examines the possibility that such concern is...reflected by internal migration patterns. More specifically, this research considers the relationship between county-level environmental characteristics and in- and outmigration streams. The results suggest that counties with environmental hazards such as air and water pollution, hazardous waste and Superfund sites do not lose residents at greater rates than areas without such hazards. However, areas with such risks gain relatively fewer new residents."

"Using data from the 1990 Public Use Microdata Samples (PUMS) and other U.S. census documents, this paper demonstrates how three rather dramatic shifts in the migration behavior of blacks, which took shape during the 1970s, continued to contribute to the geographical redistribution of the black population down the urban hierarchy during the 1980s. Analyses of black migration flows into six metropolitan areas suggest that liberal welfare benefits play, at best, a minor role in contemporary black population redistribution trends, kinship ties (i.e., location-specific capital), the search for affordable housing, and employment in the hospitality services industry appear to be the dominant forces influencing black migration into the case-study communities."

"This paper employs a household approach to elderly migration analyses and compares it with the traditional individual approach. The first part of the paper develops some concepts about household mobility and relates them to individual mobility. It then compares the two mobility measurements in a case study using the Public Use Microdata Sample (PUMS) from the 1990 [U.S.] Census. The results show that the mean household size for the elderly moving together tends to be smaller than that for elderly stayers. It also demonstrates the utility of the household approach on profiling elderly movers' living arrangement choices. The second part of the paper calibrates a set of discrete choice models based on the household and individual approaches."

Personal characteristics affected how in-migrants evaluated prospective rural residential locations. Higher income in-migrants placed a high priority on job opportunities, housing quality, a short commute to work, quality of schools, and low local taxes. Lower income in-migrants were more likely to value a location near family and friends. Ability to own a home, housing costs, and local taxes were also important."

Reconstructed age-schedules of migration for large and small cohorts support the existence of `delayed mobility' among baby boomers."

Demographic trends in the Far Eastern region of the Russian Federation are analyzed. The author notes that population density in the region was only 1.2 persons per square kilometer in 1997 as compared with 8.6 for the country as a whole. The many incentives for people to move to this region that existed under the Soviet regime have been abolished, and this has led to out-migration. The region's rate of economic growth has also declined significantly in recent years. There has been a 10 percent decline in the size of the region's population since 1991.

The program has been used to recover and estimate data successfully, and results include sample tables of migrants between types of districts by ethnicity."

"Has the national intercounty migration level of American males been experiencing a decline over the past half-century? What differences in age patterns have period and cohort migration schedules exhibited during this period? These fundamental questions are addressed in this paper. We find that both period and cohort levels of migration have indeed been declining, with the principal consequence for age patterns being a parallel decline in the levels of young-adult migration. American males are moving less, and their peak migration rate in the young-adult years has steadily moved to a younger age over time."

Urban Studies, Vol. 35, No. 2, Feb 1998. 193-214 pp. Abingdon, England.
"This paper reports a study investigating long-distance migration to the Gold Coast in Australia's `sun-belt'. A survey of in-migrant households, derived through a random digit dialling sample and telephone interviewing, collected data on aspects of the migration decision process. The data show non-economic, mainly lifestyle factors to be predominant in migration decisions. The relationships amongst employment status, housing tenure and household/family structure were investigated and changes as a result of migration were identified. While the majority of migrants are satisfied with their relocation to the `sun-belt', 30 per cent of migrants were contemplating further long-distance migration, including return migration. The study also confirms the need for migration studies to look beyond the traditional form of push-pull factors as a theoretical framework."

"The relationship between migration experience and family patterns among residents of the North and West [of the United States] is examined for three time periods--1940, 1970, and 1990. In general, an inverse association is observed between duration of residence in the North or West and family stability among African Americans. Although selective return migration to the South contributes to this association, it can account for only a minor part of the variation in family patterns by migration history. It is concluded that there is no evidence to support previous assumptions that southern migrants carried a dysfunctional family culture with them to the North and West, and thereby destabilized the nonsouthern African American family."

In the post-war period (1945-50) some 15.4 million people fled or were displaced within Europe. Most of them moved or were forced to move westwards.... In recent times the wars in Croatia and Bosnia as well as ethnic cleansing have led to the largest wave of refugees and displaced persons since 1945.... The paper argues that push and pull factors causing massive migration cannot...be contained by erecting new legislative barriers and deploying more armed guards against newcomers."

"A number of essays in this volume show how the foreign policies of the United States and Germany have directly or inadvertently contributed to the influx from the former Yugoslavia, Mexico, the Caribbean, and the former Soviet Union. Now faced with growing resistance to admitting foreigners into their countries, both governments have once again been using foreign-policy instruments in an effort to change the conditions in the refugees' countries of origin that forced them to leave. This volume addresses questions such as which policies can influence governments to improve their human rights, protect minorities, end internal strife, reduce the level of violence, or improve economic conditions so that large numbers of people need not leave their homes."

"This paper examines the return behavior of immigrants residing in Germany with a focus on differences in their country of origin, their position in the life-cycle and their family structure.... One cannot expect that immigrants from different countries of origin will display a uniform pattern of return migration, even controlling for observable individual differences. A major determinant of migration flows will be the development of the German economy itself. If the economic attractiveness of Germany in comparison to the migrants' sending countries is retained, migration will be of a more permanent nature. If it fades, large emigration streams can be expected." This article was originally published in Vierteljahreshefte zur Wirtschaftsforschung, No. 1-2, 1994.
