Example text

Therefore, the CBS sends out a questionnaire to each of the municipalities, asking them for information on the total number of persons who moved within the municipality during the year, disaggregated only by sex and certain family characteristics at time of move. Since 1977, the survey has been carried out anually and allows the CBS to produce overviews of total migration in the Netherlands. The second source of migration data is the Labour Force Survey (LFS), which is coordinated within the framework of the European Community.

Neither of these sources permits any detailed analysis of migration by income or motivation. The GHS has run continuously since 1971, is based on an annual sample of around 15,000 private households, and is designed to provide information on housing, health, employment and education. It contains, for example, a question about the motivation behind the decision to move. The NDHS, on the other hand, was an ad hoc survey of some 71,000 households, carried out in 1977-78 to provide information about the housing situation and containing questions about length of residence.

One ironic benefit of using net migration in the projection model is that it doesn't matter whether the net figures are derived from transition or movement data as long as all transition types have been accounted for (Rees 1985). Since the project brief required that single year of age populations for males, females and persons be projected for 108 local authority areas in England, a fully multiregional strategy was rejected from the outset because of the small number problem. Rather, an approach was developed which used trended gross migration rates, model generated rates of out-migration and in-migration (a 'parameterized' strategy) and interregion allocation rates for three broad age groups only.
