  15. 15. Lee’s Model 1966<br />
  16. 16. Does not isolate push pull factors<br />Looks at attributes for each place <br />Decisions based on personal factors reliant on <br />Age<br />Gender<br />Marital Status<br />Education<br />Socio-economic class<br />Some are positive factors some are seen as negative others as neutral all this influences personal decision making process<br />

  19. 19. Demographic Consequences<br />Changes in the numbers and distribution of people within a region are changed. <br />Intermarriages are created, leading to a new group of people. <br />
  20. 20. Social Consequences<br />Migration brings different people together leading to conflicts. <br />Migration however also creates understanding between different groups of people. <br />Rural-Urban migration creates ghettoes in cities. <br />
  21. 21. Economic Consequences<br />This depends on the &quot;quality&quot; of the migrants and the economic needs of the origin and destination. Quality refers to skills, age, educational attainment, health etc. <br />In overpopulated areas, emigration is beneficial because it reduces the pressure on the land. <br />In under populated areas, emigration may slow down development. <br />
  22. 22. Class Work<br />‘Most migrants travel short distances, with increased distance the number of migrants decrease’<br />‘The major direction of migration is from agricultural to areas of industry and commerce’<br />‘Most migrants are adults and families rarely migrate out of their own countries of birth.’<br />These remarks were made 150yrs ago how well do they stand up today, write notes on your own and then discuss in small groups<br />
