An Analysis of Mobility and Migration in Metro Separate Schools. Research Report.
Feeney, J. D.
In order to reflect accurate comparative enrollment estimates and projections for public and Catholic schools in Ontario (Canada), student mobility between the two systems should be measured within the same geographical area. Because Ontario government statistics show only migrations in and out of large geographical units, the need for long-term projections for each system compelled the Catholic system's metropolitan Toronto district to compile data on movement of students, showing both mobility between systems and area migrations. For the 4 years from 1978 through 1981, figures show that the rates of migration to and from the two operating systems were different from migration to or from the Toronto area, and different from the rate of movement of students between schools within that area.
