This paper reviews research on the causes of migration, with the intention of delineating the current state of theoretical development on the factors determining migration and non migration and those influencing the direction of migration. There are two additional generic areas of migration theory that are not treated in this review: the effects of migration on the individual and the impact of migration on society and communities (see Ritchey 1 974). The strict focus on explanations of migration also excludes other areas of current study and concern to the student of migration. The following references are recommended: Price & Sikes (1 975) on issues of concern in the study of rural-to-urban migration; Jansen (1969) on the hypothesis of intervening opportunities in a context not treated in this review; Elizaga (1 972) on measurement and data problems in migration research; GoldÂ scheider ( 1 97 1 ) on the concept of migration; Shaw (1 975) on probabilistic and stochastic models of migration; Sanua (1 969) on the relationship between migration and mental disorders; and a recent issue of the International Migration Review (Macisco & Myers 1975), devoted to the relationship between migration and ferÂ tility.
