Geographical Mobility: March 1975 to March 1976. Current Population Reports, Population Characteristics, Series P-20, No. 305.
Hansen, Kristin A.; And Others
Statistics show aspects of geographical mobility of individuals within the United States from March 1975 to March 1976. Most of the estimates are based on data collected by the Current Population Survey. An initial section discusses general trends which the data indicate. For example, the rate of residential mobility in the United States is high by international standards, although it seems to be declining. In 1975-76, nonmetropolitan parts of the country seem to have gained population from metropolitan areas. A clear relationship between labor force status and mobility status is shown. Occupation shows a somewhat less consistent relationship to mobility status. A person's educational attainment appears to influence the likelihood of migration, as do the presence and ages of children in a family. The majority of the document is comprised of 47 tables of statistics. Sample titles are General Mobility, By Sex and Single Years of Age; Central City Mobility for Families, By Sex of Family Head and Age; and Detailed Mobility, Immigrants, and Outmigrants, By Region and Race. An appendix contains definitions and explanations of terms such as "primary individual" and "poverty status," as well as a discussion of source and reliability of the estimates. (AV)
