Abstract

Mobility data from the 1970 and 1980 U.S. Population Censuses are used to examine the relative differences in migration expectancy rates within and between metropolitan and non-metropolitan areas. Our analyses indicate that expectancy rates have increased over time for all categories of people, sex and race; and for all types of moves with the exception of those from non metropolitan to metropolitan areas. Racial differences in expectancy rates show that expected moves were highest for Whites followed by Hispanics and Blacks. Sex differentials reveal that women have a tendency to move to a different house more often than men at every age in the two censuses. Controlling for race, the same pattern is observed for Whites and Hispanics but not for Blacks. Expected moves for Blacks were higher for males than females at all age groups in the 1970 census; the 1980 census, however, shows a complete reversal. The implications of these results for population redistribution in the U.S. are discussed. I dati dei censimenti statunitensi del 1970 e del 1980 vengono qui utilizzati per analizzare le differenze relative dei tassi migratori attesi (probabilità di spostamento dall'età x all'età x + n) per i flussi tra aree metropolitane e aree non metropolitane. Le analisi compiute indicano che le probabilità di spostamento sono aumentate nel tempo per tutte le categorie di persone, per entrambi i sessi e per tutte le razze. E questo per tutti i tipi di spostamenti, con la sola eccezione di quelli provenienti dalle aree non metropolitane e diretti alle aree metropolitane. Dans cet article on utilise les données des recensements des Etats Unis de 1970 et de 1980 afin d'analyser les différences relatives des taux de migration attendue (quotient de migration de l'âge x à l'âge x + n) pour les flux entre zones métropolitaines et zones non métropolitaines.
