ABSTRACT
The purpose of this paper is to empirically evaluate the effect of geographic scale on migration analysis by conducting similar migration studies at two levels of spatial aggregation. The analyses are concerned with the interrelationship between interregional population movement in the U.S. from 1965 to 1970 and various socioeconomic, demographic, and environmental factors usually associated with migration. Recognizing the interdependent nature of these relationships, the model is specified as a system of simultaneous equations, and the parameters are estimated using a two stage least squares solution. The results indicate that scale does, in fact, influence the outcome of the analyses such that the effects of migration on regional attractiveness and the conditions under which migration occurs vary from one geographic scale to another.
