Imposing age and spatial structures on inadequate migration flow data sets

Rogers, Andrei, Willekens, Frans and Raymer, James (2003) Imposing age and spatial structures on inadequate migration flow data sets The Professional Geographer, 55, (1), pp. 56-69. (doi:10.1111/0033-0124.01052).

Record type: Article


With the elimination of the long-form questionnaire from future decennial censuses and its replacement by a much smaller continuous monthly sampling survey (the American Community Survey), students of territorial mobility may find it necessary to deal with inadequate, missing, or inaccurate sample data on migration by adopting an approach that “improves” such data using information from different geographical areas, time periods, and data sources. We develop such an approach in this article and illustrate it with interregional migration flow data reported by the U.S. decennial censuses of 1980 and 1990 and by the 1985 Current Population Survey.
