The analysis of internal migrations in the context of socio-economic aspects – two-step approach
The subject of this paper is to formulate an approach of determining dependencies between socio-economic aspects and migration phenomena and also make an attempt to apply it for the analysis of internal migration in Poland in 2004-2011. A construction of econometric gravity model with using of taxonomical measure was presented and also a significance, intensity and impact direction of selected socio-economic aspects on domestic migration flows was identified. Inhabitants of economically better developed voivodships are much more mobile territorially; a poor situation of a region is an impeding factor of migratory movement. Regional labour market situation constitutes a deciding reason of population inflow, while living situation plays a negligible role. Migration scope is relatively slight in Poland, significant population flows take place between neighbouring regions. Economic cycle affects an intensity of domestic population flows.
