Migration Differentials: Trends by Race.
Wilson, Franklin D.
Trends in black and white migration differentials (by race, age, education, and region) between 1965 and 1976 are analyzed in this paper. Findings provide further documentation of the increased net flow of populations from the North and East to the South and West regions of the United States. Migration differentials with respect to age increased among blacks and decreased among whites, while migration differentials by educational attainment increased among both racial groups. For the 1965-70 period, the propensity to migrate is associated with employment status. For example, persons who were not in the labor force in 1965 were substantially more likely to migrate. This finding supports the conclusion that migration is associated with entrance into and exit from the labor force. (Author/WAM)
