Abstract

Though it is conceded that the major stream of migration in developing countries flows from rural to urban areas, research on identifying the principle determinants of rural-urban migration are quite scarce. This is especially so in quantitative terms. Therefore, hypotheses concerning the economic determinants of rural-urban migration are investigated and economic impact of rural-urban migration is also examined in this dissertation. Migration can be viewed from many different perspectives -- selectivities, pull and push, human investment approaches, etc . However, this study follows economic tradition and views migration in a general equilibrium context. In the economic opportunity hypothesis, discrepancies of factor payments among regions is postulated. The significance of selected economic determinants such as the magnitude of capital investment and relative prices of rural and urban goods is then tested along with the economic opportunity hypothesis.
