Kentucky Demographics: Demographic and Economic Impacts of Migration in Kentucky, 1975-80. No. 11.
This analysis of demographic and economic impacts of migration compared samples of nonmigrants, inmigrants, and outmigrants for Kentucky from 1975 to 1980. Age, gender, race, birth place, educational attainment, income, and labor force characteristics were compared for the three groups. Inmigrants, including intrastate migrants, were compared on metropolitan or nonmetropolitan relocation choices. The analysis found inmigration increases in all age groups except those 65 years and older, with the 18-year-old and under experiencing the largest increase. Migration had little effect on racial composition and native population. Migrants were more highly educated than nonmigrants; outmigrants were more likely to have attained higher education. Nonmigrant incomes were higher than those of inmigrants; outmigrant incomes were highest. Net outmigration occurred among the civilian labor force, resulting in a loss of workers from all occupational groups except farming, forestry, and fishing. One in four migrants held managerial/professional positions; numbers of inmigrant and outmigrant workers in professional services were approximately the same. Inmigrants to metropolitan areas were more likely to be female, younger, nonwhite, better educated, and making higher incomes than inmigrants to nonmetropolitan areas. Four tables and nine figures supplement the text. (LFL)
