Using age and spatial flow structures in the indirect estimation of migration streams
Demography, 44, (2), . (doi:10.1353/dem.2007.0016).
This paper outlines a formal model-based approach for inferring interregional age-specific migration streams, in settings where such data are incomplete, inadequate, or unavailable. The estimation approach relies heavily on log-linear models, using them to impose some of the regularities exhibited by past age and spatial structures or by those obtained by combining and borrowing information drawn from other sources. The approach is illustrated using data from the 1990 and 2000 United States and Mexico censuses.
