    The adepts of international migration have attempted to develop models that can be used to examine the underlying factors that push the migrants to take the decision of leaving the country of origin. The have tried to analyse the way in which the difference in the socioeconomic determinants between spatial entities (countries, regions and provinces) may affect the decision of people to immigrate. This work has recommended first to verify empirically the validation of the theory of migratory basins within one country and to identify variables that clarify the intent of emigration. With respect to the Moroccan context, this work presents a two-fold interest. On the methodological level, this contribution is, to our knowledge, the first application of the micro econometric spatial approach on the data collected during our investigation. At the analytical level, the findings of this work complement those of the few descriptive studies. Subsequently, the results of this research should be used to reflect deeply upon the public policies related to emigration.
