by Macrina Kilaton-Abenoja, Master of Arts in Demography (1975)
The same municipal data display he double orientation of the Philippine migration, as observed by previous researches, in a certain peculiar way. Movements towards the more developed areas predominate migration into the region, while the rural trend is prevalent in cases of movements out of the region.
This study identifies the two Visayan regions as areas of outmigration- a confirmation of previous findings. It also reveals some popular migration-differential findings, like young males tend to be the most mobile segment of the population. It also indicates a divergent manner by which mobility is affected by sex.
