This paper reports some preliminary results of the PLM survey, as they relate to migration flews in Pakistan. Section II reviews the implications of the data collection methodology, and is followed (in Section III) by an analysis of the major flows of internal migration. Section IV deals separately with international migration and Section VIII draws some concluding observations.
