Spatial Population Dynamics: Location Without Age
- 53 Downloads
The evolution of a single regional population necessarily treats the contribution of migration as a net total. But there is no person who is a net migrant, and uniregional specifications therefore may be misspecified. To treat migration as a probability of transition from a particular origin to a particular destination necessarily involves at least two populations. This chapter sets out the simplest two-region model and illustrates how it may be used to answer an array of practical applications.
