The Influence of the Social Infrastructure on the Migration of the Population

Authors

Abstract

The proportion between natural and migratory growth of population varies not only in different regions of the country but even within the same region. Thus the share of in-migration in the overall growth of the urban population in Western Siberia between 1959 and 1969 was 53%, while the share of natural growth was 47%; in the Tiumen Region, on the other hand, inmigration accounted for 85% of total population growth, while natural growth accounted for 15%. (>u>1>/u>) This state of affairs resulted from the intensive development of the region's productive forces in connection with the discovery of oil and gas deposits within its confines.
