Research on rural-to-urban migration in LDCs: the confusion frontier and why we should pause to re-think afresh



Research on rural-to-urban migration in LDCs: the confusion frontier and why we should pause to re-think afresh



Discussion Paper Series, Economics Research Institute, Bar Ilan University (RI 8029): 14



The paper, prepared for the 1981 annual meeting of the Population Association of America, identifies confusions or fallacies in rural-to-urban migration research. Various theories on migration and fertility, migration and education, migration and the distribution of income, migration and technological change in agricultural production and migration and policy measures are examined.
