Abstract

This note attempts to assess the impact of the assumption that interregional migration patterns are independent of the birthplace on the accuracy of the method suggested by Rogers and von Rabenau (1971) to infer interregional migration streams from place-of-residence-by-place-of-birth (PRPB) data.

This assumption is shown to be the main element responsible for the relative inaccuracies of the method, a result which suggests that the use of an additional subscript to identify the birthplace, in matrix generalizations of some standard mathematical models of population growth and distribution, should be made with caution.
