A Study of Economic Consequences of Rural to Urban Migration. Final Report, Volume II.
Price, Daniel O.
This is the second volume of a study that evaluated rural migration patterns of Mexican Americans, Negroes, and Anglo-Americans who moved from the Southern States to urban areas. Six of the 14 chapters in the report are included in this volume, covering analysis of occupational distribution among white collar, blue collar and semiskilled, unskilled, and agricultural workers, and a comparison of incomes and education. Patterns of migration are also analyzed, as well as attitudinal differences between migrants and nonmigrants. The final chapter constructs a profile of differences in levels of living of nonmigrants and migrants and contrasts the two. Volume I, containing a summary of the program and design of the research project, is announced as VT 010 919. Volume III, which is concerned with migrant adjustment and impact of outmigration on the rural area, is announced as VT 010 921. (BC)
