A Study of Economic Consequences of Rural to Urban Migration. Final Report, Volume III.
Price, Daniel O.
This is the third and last volume of a study that analyzed rural migration patterns of Mexican Americans, Negroes, and Anglo-Americans who moved from the Southern States to urban areas. Six of the 14 chapters are included in this report. The study examines differences in family characteristics between migrants and nonmigrants, migrants' perceptions about anticipated conditions in the city and actual conditions, and adjustment of urban migrants to their new surroundings. The report also reviews the advice of urban migrants on steps to be taken before moving, the conditions necessary for migrants to return to their former residences, and the effect of out-migration on rural areas. Volume I, containing a summary of the program and design of the research project, is announced as VT 010 919. Volume II reviews differences in levels of living and attitudes, education, occupation, income, and migration patterns, and is announced as VT 010 920. (BC)
