The relationship between migration and income distribution is an important phenomena. There are two types of migration: internal (in migration) and external (out migration). Both of them are because of politic, economic and social reasons. Here both of them are considered inside Turkey. Data is chosen from 2008-2012 periods for the 12 statistically divided regions in Turkey. Following the Panel unit root test, panel least square methods is used for the empirical part. As to result, it is concluded that for the 2008-2012 periods, migration has an adjusting role for 12 statistical regions in Turkey.
