Youth Migration Drives the Depopulation of Periphery
In this research we are studying the impact of migration on demographic structures at sub-regional level of administrative division using census data. We are focusing our prime attention on the youth migration because their relocation determines the greatest changes in the demographic structure. The main method of our research is “survival method”, a cohort-wise approach. Our estimation shows that up to 70% of school graduates leave the regional periphery for good. There is no significant return to the demographically depleted periphery in the young working ages.
