      What is rural-urban migration? Rural-urban migration is the movement of people from the countryside to the city. This causes two things to happen: 1. Urban growth - towns and cities are expanding, covering a greater area of land. 2. Urbanisation - an increasing proportion of people living in towns and cities. Migration is a driver of urbanisation (), and urban migration (both national and international) is an increasing trend of the twenty-first century. Figures are subject to much debate, but it is estimated that globally there are million internal and million international migrants (UNDESA, b).Accordingly, debates on the impact of migration flows and migrant dynamics on the .

      Ruralward migrants appeared to be young single people and young married people without children, as well as stable families. The “most ruralward” migrants tended to be from the most highly urban environments. This new pattern of migration is independent of both “white suburban flight” and the “sun-belt” phenomenon. As highlighted above, there are generally two types of factors that are involved in rural-urban migration. The push factors refer to forces that encourage one to move away from an area and pull.

      80) List the major push and pull factors in migration and give examples of each. Environmental pull factor-warm clime, push factor-to little or to much water, Cultural pull factor- religious freedom push factor-persecution of a religion, Economic pull factor- lots of jobs, push factor- few job opportunities.   Similar to the relationship between climate and migration, it is unlikely that conflict alone is a major driver of mobility and displacement but traditional push and pull factors such as differences in per capita income between origin and destination, population size and distance also influence outmigration considerably (Czaika and Kis-Katos.

to regard rural-urban migration as “the major contributing factor to the ubiquitous phenomenon of urban surplus labour and as a force which continues to exacerbate already serious urban unemployment problems” (Todaro, ). Population growth in urban areas has soared over the last few decades.

Mostly people from remote areas come to industrial and urban areas in search of work. Similarly, people try their luck for employment opportunities in foreign countries. Push and pull factors of migration. Push factors of migration are those factors that force an individual to leave the place of origin.

They are the disadvantages of particular. First, the housing sector, a pillar of China's urban economy, is closely linked to China's internal migration.

Pull factors, on the other hand, are often the positive aspects of a different country that encourage people to immigrate in order to seek a better life.
