in the Serra do Alvao, northern Portugal. Economic Development and
Cultural Change, Vol. 41, No. 3, Apr 1993. 563-85 pp. Chicago,
Illinois. In Eng.
"This article considers the effects of migration and return specifically on agriculture in one region of Portugal, the Serra do Alvao. This area has experienced both a massive outflow of population and, at the same time, the maintenance of a high proportion of its remaining population in agriculture. I identify a number of adjustments to agricultural and social practices which were initiated largely in response to this widespread migration and return and, at the same time, I distinguish the impact of different categories of returning migrants on the farming system." The data were collected during field research carried out in 1987 and 1988.

"The purpose of this book is to explore the phenomenon of human migration, especially as it occurs within the so-called developed countries of the world. The approach is analytical, and various kinds of migration models are described and explained....Structural equation models are used to specify the interrelationships among sets of variables that are hypothesized to explain migration....There is a unifying geographic emphasis on the relationship between socioeconomic processes and spatial patterns. The book is organized according to two main axes of differentiation. First, a distinction is made between macro and micro approaches to explaining migration....A second distinction is made between interregional migration and migration within cities, or residential mobility."

"Part I concentrates on methodological issues and on instructive historical patterns of migration during the period of European rule. In Part II the various authors are concerned with recent movements of refugees, transmigrants, and immigrants to frontier realms within Southeast Asia or to other lands. The chapters in Part III consider the adjustment of migrants to new economic and cultural environments and discuss certain theoretical implications of the current migrational process."

254 pp. Belhaven Press: London, England. In Eng.
This collection of studies by various authors is the product of a 1991 conference held in Colorado concerning elderly migration. The studies focus on the migration of those aged 60 and over in Western developed countries. The book "examines the factors that govern why the elderly decide to migrate, how the migration processes operate and the impact the arrival and departure of an age-specific group has on the population at large. The study is cast in a comparative framework that points out the similarities and contrasts between North America, Europe and Japan." The contributions are organized into four parts, which deal with motivation and causes, the proximity of children and living arrangements, elderly metropolitan redistribution patterns, and three case studies concerning Japan, the United Kingdom, and the United States.

Prognozirovaniya, Vol. 3, No. 5, Oct 1992. 381-7 pp. Moscow, Russia. In
"The article deals with the problem of migration of Russian-speaking people and, above all, of Russian nationals to Russia. The authors focus their attention on the fact that in the latter half of the 1980s most of the migratory waves to Russia differed radically from the migration of previous years in scope, form, structure, and intensity. Migration is tending to increase. The proclamation of sovereignty by the former Union republics and the aggravation of relations between nationalities have induced mounting waves of migration of Russian-speaking people. The authors write that Russians are moving from all sovereign states, and they forecast an increasing exodus of Russians in the 1990s."

"The objective of this article is to present briefly some results of two research projects on migration and the subsistence strategies of Haitian households. Fieldwork for these two projects were undertaken in Haiti (1982) and French Guyana (1986-1987). The methodology is mainly qualitative and the collection of life histories constitutes the main data source." The author notes that "the increasing social and economic marginalization of the peasant population, the exodus of the young labor force, and the educational and migratory strategy of parents for their children are all but a few factors which transform the traditional peasant mode of living. Given the actual state of the economy and polity in Haiti, emigration generates emigration."

The author reviews recent evidence concerning the emigration potential of Russia and Eastern Europe, using data from a 1991 survey of 4,269 respondents. "It is demonstrated that the proportion of adults wishing to emigrate from each of these countries in February 1991 varied from a low of 2 per cent in Lithuania to a high of 13 per cent in Poland. Total emigration potential from the region is estimated to have been between 10.2 and 16.7 million....A multiple regression analysis indicates that age and pessimism concerning democracy are the main factors that were independently associated with desire to emigrate."

"The effect of changing to the UN definition is dramatic, and differences between old and new estimates are not systematic....If these findings stand up when all migrants are included, using the UN definition, then the much larger flows suggest that the effects on the composition and characteristics of the nonmigrant population of Canada warrant investigation."

Some aspects of recent immigration trends in Europe are analyzed, with particular reference to the situation in Italy. The focus is on the process of settlement and the level of assimilation of migrants. The author suggests that in contrast to previous European experience, migrants in the last 20 years have tended to preserve their ethnic and cultural identity rather than assimilate into the receiving society. The consequences of this change, which include the development of multicultural societies, the growth of anti-immigrant opinion, and the development of informal economies, are reviewed.

The model's architecture rests on the functioning of information feedback between settled friends and family at the destination and potential emigrants at the origin." The author tests the model using data on Greek emigration to the United States since 1820 and on total emigration from Cyprus since 1946.

This publication presents 25 contributions by various authors on aspects of current immigration to the United States. The papers deal with such issues as whether immigration perpetuates the underclass and impedes economic improvement for black and Hispanic U.S. citizens, whether migrants displace American workers and depress wages, the purpose of immigration law, and how and why the myth of labor shortage arose. The common theme of the studies is that current U.S. immigration policies are contributing to a decline in U.S. economic competitiveness and are undermining the job opportunities, wages, and working conditions of the disadvantaged.

"The present paper investigates how much a simple economic theory of policy can contribute to an understanding of the distinctive nineteenth-century international migration policy...[by providing] an account of why the nineteenth-century world economy was so open to labour movements. Section II outlines a political economy of international migration based upon factor income maximization, factor endowments, income distribution and constitutions. Section III shows how the model fits a large component of nineteenth-century experience and Section IV focuses on the, at first sight, anomalous policy of the most important destination for European immigration, the United States."

It focuses on the consequences of this population movement for the sending and receiving communities, the immigrants and their families....The central analytic concepts guiding our treatment of Dominican migration are: the international division of labor; state policy in the receiving and sending societies; social class relations in the sending and receiving societies; and immigrant households, social networks, and gender and generational hierarchies." Both demographic and anthropological survey data gathered during the 1980s are used in the study.

Measures taken by the German government in the areas of employment and housing to relieve these problems are described.

"Alternative multi-state population projections to 2050 based on six scenarios show that (1) in the case of no further immigration the total population of Western Europe will start to decline after 2010; (2) the rate of integration influences the future size of the non-European population much more than alternative levels of immigration; (3) in the long run the Eastern Europeans will be quantitatively insignificant; (4) the Western European population is bound to significant population aging no matter what happens with immigration; and (5) in the short to medium run immigrants contribute to the alleviation of the pension burden."

Data from the U.S. Current Population Survey for November 1989 are used to analyze factors affecting the labor market experiences of migrants to the United States. "This survey showed...that the unemployment rate for immigrants was somewhat higher than the rate for native-born workers, and that the weekly earnings of immigrants who worked full time were significantly lower than those of natives. The survey also pointed to differences in the level of schooling as a major reason for these disparities....Other factors affecting the labor market status of immigrants include the length of time they had lived in the United States and their fluency in English."

pp. Oxford, England. In Eng.
Factors affecting the flow of migrants from Ireland in the nineteenth century are discussed, in answer to two questions. "The first is: why was it that labour flowed from Ireland to Britain (and elsewhere), while capital failed to flow from Britain (and elsewhere) to Ireland? The second is: did more productive members of society emigrate?...[The author] outlines a simple two country, two factor, one good model that will be used to formally link [these] two questions....[He also] suggests that high quality workers may indeed have been disproportionately mobile in nineteenth century Ireland. A simple microeconomic argument is given in support of this claim."

The rapid increase in international migration from Eastern to Western Europe that occurred in 1989-1990 is described, with particular attention to the effect of this trend on Poland. The author notes that the relaxation of migration laws in Eastern Europe has allowed migration that would have previously been banned. In addition to the migration stream from east to west, the author also observes that Eastern Europe may become a major destination of refugees from the former Soviet Union as well as from developing countries.

This is a comparative study of two North American migration streams: Italian immigrants to North America in general, and French-Canadian migration from Quebec province to the United States. The objective of the study is "to penetrate the local microcosms of sending societies and to identify those selection mechanisms responsible for sending away some villagers but not others or for bringing some of those migrants back to their villages." The study examines the process of working-class formation and the unusual place held by Quebec as both a sending and a receiving society. The time period covered is from 1860 to 1914.

"The educational, occupational, industrial and income characteristics of immigrants in Canada, 1971-1986, are considered in the context of postindustrial structural changes in the economic and social system, including declining primary and secondary sectors. Seven alternative theoretical models are reviewed. A composite model of 'segmented structural change' is found to correspond more closely than alternative theoretical perspectives to the empirical evidence. Specifically, immigrants are found at all levels of the system, but there is differential incorporation by gender, ethnicity and period of immigration. Recent immigrants from Third World countries tend to be disadvantaged."

The author discusses the relationship between international migration and political factors in the Middle East, with a focus on the impact of the Iraqi invasion of Kuwait in 1990 and subsequent developments within Iraq. "This note argues that, while demographers contributed little to the knowledge and policy action during the Gulf crisis, they can enhance future understanding of the links between international migration and international relations by monitoring and more accurately predicting migration flows and ensuring that academic research is 'translated' for use by the policy community."

"International migration must be understood as a permanent phenomenon rather than as a temporary movement. In this article, the author proceeds from the premise that in appreciating the relation between the past and the present, we may be able to draw on 'lessons of the past' to modify our definition and perception of current problems and to analyze possible policies and decisions. The article is divided into several sections, historical changes within migration patterns including different categories of migrants, various phases within the migration process in recent history, theoretical considerations in analysis, distinct types of immigration policies pursued by various states, and current and possible future trends."

pp. Staten Island, New York. In Eng.
"The article reviews the nature of international labor migration today and the economic and political rationale for its occurrence. It suggests that while the developed economies will continue to attract and exchange highly skilled labor, they will have little need for mass immigration by those with low skill levels. In contrast, poorer countries with rapid population growth and low living standards will encourage emigration, except by the highly skilled. One consequence will be more illegal immigration."

This is a study of migration from the southern Italian province of Cosenza to North America over the period 1880-1930. The author examines the character of this migration as it changed from predominantly sojourn, or temporary, migration to permanent settlement over time, and describes the concept of chain migration. He also assesses both the process of migrant assimilation and the influence of migration on the place of origin.

The diverse nationalities are aggregated into eight different regions of origin: Mexico, Puerto Rico, Rest of South and Central America, Europe, Asia, Africa and Oceania, Canada and the Rest of the World. First, the regional distribution of these eight groups at the 1970 and 1980 censuses are examined. Next, the spatial redistribution of the foreign-born population and its changes over time are studied...."

"This paper investigates the application of general linear modelling principles to analysing migration flows between areas. Particular attention is paid to specifying the form of the regression and error components, and the nature of departures from Poisson randomness. Extensions to take account of spatial and temporal correlation are discussed as well as constrained estimation. The issue of specification bears on the testing of migration theories, and assessing the role migration plays in job and housing markets: the direction and significance of the effects of economic variates on migration depends on the specification of the statistical model. The application is in the context of migration in London and South East England in the 1970s and 1980s."

"The purpose of this paper is to 'resurrect' the measure of net migration and defend its continued use under specific research circumstances, despite the current dissatisfaction with the measure as expressed by some scholars. We employ data from the 1980 [U.S.] Census of Population to compare five measures of migration, including net migration rates, in- and out-migration rates, migration efficiency ratios and migration turnover rates. We demonstrate the additivity of in- and out-migration rates with net migration rates and migration turnover rates. Also, we show how the migration efficiency ratio and turnover rates are conceptually and mathematically related. Finally, a simple multivariate model is estimated to show how regression coefficients from in- and out-migration rate models are related to net migration and migration turnover rates."

University Press of America: Lanham, Maryland/London, England. In Eng.
The authors present a selection of analytical research concerning migration decision-making in the United States. The focus is primarily on such noneconomic factors associated with migration as individual characteristics, ecological factors, and community involvement and satisfaction. "This volume documents that social foundations of migration continue to be instrumental in motivating people to move or to stay. Despite the prevalent metaphoric acceptance of an economic model as the explanation governing how people behave, the analyses of migration presented here indicate that noneconomic factors continue to help determine why, when, where and who moves."

We find that public sector attributes, through their effect on migration, are among the determinants of regional development....An additional contribution of this paper is to suggest that if taxes and public expenditures influence migration, then a general theory of local or regional policy aimed at economic development must include explicit consideration of migration."

These results are then disaggregated by education, age at migration, period of residence, and particular sending and receiving location, to provide more specific information on which groups benefit most. Wide variation in gains is observed, but substantial improvements in earnings are reported in most cases."

The changed international climate of the 1990s...has shifted the focus from the asylum and resettlement countries to the countries of origin: there is today a greater willingness to intervene in other countries' affairs either to avert the creation of new flows of focused migrants or to assist internally displaced populations, and there is the expectation of large-scale voluntary returns of refugees in asylum. This article discusses these and other policy issues concerning forced migration in this new international environment."

This book presents seven case studies on the experiences of migrant workers returning from the Middle East to Bangladesh, Kerala in India, Pakistan, the Philippines, South Korea, Sri Lanka, and Thailand. The data are from a survey of some 500 returning migrants. "The survey revealed what sort of labourers migrated and why; how migrants were recruited; conditions of employment in the host country and how migrants adjusted to their new environments; the impact of migration on the worker's household; and experiences of returned migrants as they reentered the work-force and were reabsorbed in their home country." The general conclusion drawn is that "in terms of economic well-being and human development, the migration has brought benefits to a significant proportion of the migrants."

1992. 550-64 pp. Austin, Texas. In Eng.
"This study uses the commuting data from the 1980 U.S. Census to examine how metropolitan workers' choice of workplace is constrained by the residence of workers, the spatial distribution of jobs, and occupational sex segregation. The results show that, despite a general tendency among workers to be employed in their area of residence, the spatial distribution of jobs and sex-typed occupations often necessitates workers commuting to places discordant with their residence."

"This study uses an integrated human capital framework to examine the relationship between human capital, employment and ethnic factors and return migration to the Southwest [United States] among Chicanos. The sample used in the study is derived from the 1980 Public Use Microdata Samples and contains 1,926 Chicano householders between the ages of 25 and 64 who were born in one of five southwest states, lived outside of this region in 1975, and worked in the civilian labor force at any time between 1975 and 1980. The results suggest that various human capital, employment and ethnic composition variables are important predictors of Chicano return migration."

"This paper contains a model with which the desirability of persistent urbanization can be examined. There are two regions: city and countryside. Joint restrictions on the technologies in each region and on preferences over the goods produced in each region are the driving force of migration. In equilibrium there is persistent migration from the countryside to the city. Even though there are externalities in production, the competitive equilibrium is Pareto optimal."

"The aim of this paper is to investigate the factors affecting intentions of rural-migrants to return to their rural origins. Several socioeconomic, demographic, spatial, and temporal variables will be introduced to explore their explanatory power and interrelationship with the migrants' intentions. These variables are: Years lived in Riyadh, the current place of parents' residency, land ownership in the village, home ownership in the urban area, income, household size, and the area of origin. The data, which come from a sample survey of migrants conducted in Riyadh in 1983, will be analyzed by the means of binary logit model."

Government policies concerning rural settlement and rural-urban migration in Bulgaria since 1944 are evaluated and described. The author observes that during this period, "Bulgaria...has undergone rapid urbanization....The marked destructive processes in the rural settlement network since 1944, mainly due to the ageing of the rural population and its migration to the cities, have necessitated the implementation of an active regional policy in rural regions. A 'policy of key settlements' and 'a policy of key regions' were developed in recent years [to encourage rural development]."
