Amy Reed Third Law Fifth Law Fourth Law "Urban residents are less migratory than inhabitants of rural areas." Most people move to the city because of economic reasons. For example, many immigrants from Latin America move to the US in search of jobs, but usually people from California would not want to move to a farm to Mexico. The majority of migrants move a short distance. While around 1 million, less than 1% of the U.S. population, migrate to the unites states, 14.19 % percent of the US population annually migrant within the United States. "Families are less likely to make international moves than young adult." About 40% of immigrants are between the ages of 25 and 39. Example:
As you are crossing the street, you are moving from an area and people are also moving to that area. "Migrants who move longer distances tend to choose big city destination." Example:
Ellis island, right outside of New York City, processes millions more immigrants more than Coppell does. Young, 1 First Law "Every migration flow generates a return or countermigration." Second Law This is an example of people moving to a short distance. Bibliography http://www.geographylwc.org.uk/A/AS/ASpopulation/images/push%20pulled.jpg
