Title: Population Mobility in the United States


1
Population Mobility in the United States
  • Martha B. Sharma
  • APHG Test Development Committee
  • NCGE, Kansas City
  • October 22, 2004

2
II. Population
  • C. Population movement
  • 1. Push and pull factors
  • 2. Major voluntary and involuntary migrations at
    different scales
  • 3. Migration selectivity
  • 4. Short-term, local movements, and activity
    space

3
Some Basic Vocabulary
  • Domestic migration moves that cross
    jurisdictional boundaries
  • Residential mobility moves within the same
    jurisdiction
  • Moving rate percentage of people who changed
    residence in a 1-year period

March 2004.

U.S. Population Mobility
  • Between 2002 and 2003, 40.1 million U.S.
    residents moved
  • More than half of all moves were local (i.e.,
    within the same county)
  • Young adults had the highest moving rates (about
    one-third of 20-29 year olds in 2003)
  • Older adults had the highest interstate moving
    rates (28 of all 55 and older movers crossed
    state lines in 2003)
  • Hispanics and African American had the highest
    overall moving rates (18 in 2003)
  • Factors most influencing moving rates were age
    and home ownership

  • Beware the fallacy of absolute truth.
  • What is true at one scale may not be true at a
    different scale.

Questions to Guide Analysis
  • How does your state compare to the rest of the
    country in term of mobility rates? Is it above or
    below the national mean?
  • What factors may account for your states
    mobility status?
  • Describe patterns of mobility within your state.
  • Which counties have experienced above average
    mobility? Which fall below average? How do you
    account for these patterns?
  • Examine patterns of mobility within your county
    or city. Visit areas of unusually high or low
    mobility. Observe characteristics that may
    influence mobility.

31
Questions (continued)
  • How might patterns of mobility affect political
    and economic trends in your state, county, or
    community?
  • Did your parents grow up in your community or are
    they a part of the mobility pattern?
  • If your parents are local, how has your state,
    county, or community changed since they were in
    high school? Which changes are a product of
    mobility trends?

  • Activity Space
  • Mobility at the Local Scale

33
Movement at the individual scale is affected by
three factors
  • Accessibility, i.e., where you are
  • Opportunities
  • Distance
  • Mobility, i.e., who you are
  • Age
  • Income
  • Availability of car or public transportation
  • Mental maps, i.e., what you know
  • Perception of what is where
  • Perception of danger

34
Evaluating Personal Activity Space
  • Have students keep a diary of their movements for
    24 hours on a school day and on a weekend day.
    chart provided
  • Using a piece of quarter-inch graphing paper,
    have students chart their movements for each day.
  • What factors limit their movement?
  • How is their activity space different on a
    weekend day compared to a school day?

35
Evaluating Activity Space - Extension
  • Have students interview people in different age
    groups (e.g., a 7-year old, a college student, a
    parent, an elderly relative) concerning their
    movements over a 24 hour period.
  • Have them repeat the graphing activity.
  • How does age affect mobility?
  • What factors limit or enable the mobility of
    persons in different age groups?
