Abstract

There have been two distinct approaches to modelling migration flows in the past: fixed-rate demographic models and gravity or maximum entropy techniques. The author draws upon both approaches to develop a margin-constrained minimum information model. The flexible result is claimed to be well suited to current US internal migration data.-P.M.Townroe
