Both the area of departure and arrival

  • Migration is the movement of people across regions and territories. It is a determinant factor of population change as it changes the demographics (size and composition) of both the areas of departure and arrival.
  • Migration within the country is called internal migration, while that between two countries is called international migration.
  • Internal migration has no change on population size but it changes the population composition of a particular area.
  • International migration can lead to a growth or degrowth in population; depending on the degree of immigration and emigration.
