Abstract

Surveys provide an effective method for studies of the complex processes that underlie spatial mobility. This article identifies and discusses eight advantages of surveys that are related to research design and seven advantages that are related to research content. Deficiencies and disadvantages of surveys are also reviewed. Suggestions are made for improving surveys of international migration through better samples and attention to different points in a migration system.
