The study examines the regional peculiarities of immigration in Hungary. We reveal the reasons for immigration and the national differences thereof. We analyse the relations between the share of migrants and the road availability with the help of a road analysis method. The purpose of this study is to analyse the territorial characteristics of those who migrate to our county. We aim to explore the causes of immigration and the national differences of that. With the help of a path analysis we will analyse how the proportion of migrants and public road access relate to each other. So, on one hand the aim of this article is to map the regional situation of Hungary and other hand to give some examples about applications for analysis in migration.
