The synthesis includes a nine chapter discussion of: (1) the rural areas left by the migrants; (2) the decision to migrate; (3) comparative characteristics of rural-urban migrants and non-migrants living in urban areas; (4) comparative characteristics of migrants and non-migrants (racial differences); (5) the adjustment of migrants in urban areas; (6) rural return migration; (7) the effects of migration on rural areas; (8) the effect of migration on urban areas; and (9) the policy implications and needed research. The 1,139 annotated bibliographic citations include pamphlets, bulletins, dissertations, research papers, journal articles, etc. Some entries include full abstracts, and a topical index is provided to facilitate use of the bibliography.
