    Research on internal migration can be divided into two directions: identifying itsdeterminants and/or assessing its consequences. Migration is bidirectional. i.e. can beaffected by and can affect socio-economic disparities within a country. On one hand, thedeterminants of internal migration can be numerous and their analysis is very complex and,on the other hand, migration should have, at least theoretically, some influence on incomeand unemployment convergence, i.e. disparities reduction. The objectives of this paper are toevaluate the level of internal migration in Romania using county data and to assess its impacton convergence, using various methods, both statistical and econometric. The main resultspoint out at: very low levels of migration and relative small differences among them, noinfluence of migration on GDP divergence and extremely low on unemployment convergence.
