Controlling interregional migration processes of a Markovian type

R D MacKinnon

Received 7 July 1975

Abstract. A framework is suggested within which normative modelling strategies can be used to make simple dynamic migration models more relevant to policymakers. A job-vacancy model is explicitly linked to a migration- and population-distribution model. Some suggestions are made about the ways in which the models could be modified in order to make them more realistic. Other areas of application are also briefly indicated.
