Record type: Monograph (Project Report)


The log-linear model, with an alternative parameter coding scheme, is used in this paper to obtain estimates of place-to-place migration flows in situations where the data are inadequate or missing. The alternative parameter coding scheme is particularly useful in constructing the origin-destination interaction structure. To illustrate the method, two empirical examples are presented. The first demonstrates the effectiveness of the methodology by estimating known migration flows between states in the Western region of the United States during the 1985-1990 period. The second example focuses on estimating international migration flows in the Northern region of Europe during the 1999-2000 period where the data are incomplete. Both examples demonstrate the usefulness and generality of this particular method for estimating migration flows.
