Migration – When people move from one area to another. In many low-income countries (LICS) people move from rural to urban areas (rural-urban migration)
The birds migrate, but people can migrate too. He was so heavy he could only manage to go from his country house (rural) to the city (urban).
Push: The factors that cause migration include fewer and/or poor services such as education and healthcare; lack of job opportunities; poor transport; and low wages for those who do have jobs.
Pull: The factors that pull people towards migration include better services; more job opportunities; better transport; and higher wages (although probably with a higher cost of living).
Migration means the movement of people from one place to another. This movement changes the population of places – for instance. cities become more heavily populated while rural populations get smaller. This can have major effects on the number of services and facilities available in an area.
International migration is the movement of people from one country to another.
People who leave their country are said to emigrate; people who move into another country are called immigrants; and the movement of people into a country is called immigration.
