This paper considers the interrelations between the two basic ways to adjust to spatial separation: migration and commuting. After a brief discussion of the role migration and commuting play in selected urban and regional models, we present a micro-economic theoretical framework for analyzing the interrelations between these two forms of movement. The main part of the paper is devoted to the integration of commuting into demographic analysis. After discussing the demographic meaning of commuting and the problems of statistical information, we present a simple accounting model which allows for the simultaneous consideration of migration and commuting and conclude with some methodological implications.
