Interzonal migration: some historical tests of spatial-interaction models
Observed migration and survival flows between counties and between standard regions are used to test alternative calibrations of a doubly constrained spatial-interaction model. Spatial variation in the propensity to migrate over distance is examined in an analysis of zone-specific decay parameters, and two methods of splitting aggregate migration flows according to reason for move are investigated. The results of the model tests for age/sex-disaggregated data underline regional variations in propensities to migrate and in mean distances migrated.
