Abstract

It is argued that the spatial patterns of place-ties collectively held by potential metropolitan-to-nonmetropolitan migrants are broader than those held by potential monmetropolitan-to-metropolitan migrants. Consistent with this argument, it is hypothesized that metropolitan migration fields are asymmetrical, i.e., out-migration fields are more cosmopolitan than in-migration fields for the period 1965-1970 within the United States. The hypothesis is accepted generally. It is concluded that the micro-level concept of place-ties and the macro-level concept of migration fields are important inputs to the understanding of population redistribution patterns.
