Interest in human settlement systems and policies has been a critical part of urban-related work at IIASA since its inception. During the past three years this interest has given rise to a concentrated research activity focusing on migration dynamics and settlement patterns. Four sub-tasks have formed the core of this research effort: (1) the study of spatial population dynamics; (2) the definition and elaboration of a new research area called demometrics and its application to migration analysis analysis and spatial population forecasting; (3) the analysis and design of migration and settlement policy; and (4) a comparative study of national migration and settlement patterns and policies.

This report brings together four articles that describe major results of IIASA's research on the measurement and analysis of migration and population redistribution patterns. It complements a collection of seven papers published recently as a special issue of the journal Environment and Planning, A (May, 1978) and with that issue stands as the final report on methodological contributions of the Migration and Settlement Task at IIASA. The proceedings of the 1978 September Conference on the Comparative Study and the forthcoming report on computer programs will conclude the Task's series of final reports.
