Abstract : The study attempts to explore the causes of internal migration. Migration rates are estimated for various groups in the population to clarify who migrates and to where. A model of interregional migration is set forth and estimated for a sample of Colombian municipalities, from which we can infer the responsiveness of migration to some economic, demographic and political developments in the rural and urban sectors of the society.
