New Directions in Migration Research: Perspectives from Some North American Regional Science Disciplines
AbstractThis paper takes several surveys of the literature concerning migration research as its starting point and directs the reader toward a number of potentially fruitful lines for future research. Major sections include one on modeling migrant choice in which the pros and cons of using gross versus net migration measures are discussed. A second introduces and discusses the concept of a spatial choice set, which has the potential to be implemented with laboratory experimental techniques. The third involves a wide-ranging discussion of new directions in modeling the interrelationships between employment and migration. Coauthors are Peter R. Mueser, David A. Plane, and Alan M. Schlottmann.
