Description & Coverage
Description:

Internal migration serves as one of the key contributing factors to population change involving not only change in the numbers of people, but also a change in composition and structure of local populations.

Technologies for Migration and Population Analysis: Spatial Interaction Data Applications addresses the technical and data-related side of studying population flows and provides a selection of substantive case studies and applications to exemplify research currently being carried out. With expert international contributors currently working in the field, this authoritative book allows readers to better understand interaction data and ways knowledge of population flows can be put to use.

Coverage:

The many academic areas covered in this publication include, but are not limited to:

  • Interaction data
  • International Migration
  • Migration and commuting
  • Migration patterns
  • Modeling migration with Poisson regression
  • Population censuses
  • Rural commuting
  • Spatially consistent interaction flows
  • Temporal and spatial consistency

Editor/Author Biographies
John Stillwell is Professor of Migration and Regional Development in the School of Geography at the University of Leeds and is Director of CIDER. He is also the national Coordinator of the ESRC’s Understanding Population Trends and Processes (UPTAP) programme (2005-09), overseeing a wide range of demographic projects by researchers in different disciplines across the UK. His primary research interest has always been migration, in particular the analysis and modelling of flows of internal migration in the UK, with a series of publications in leading journals and edited books including Contemporary Research in Population Geography (1989), Migration Models: Macro and Micro Approaches (1990), Migration Processes and Patterns Volume 2: Population Redistribution in the United Kingdom (1992), Population Migration in the European Union (1996). He has also co-edited several books on the use of GIS in planning, most recently Planning Support Systems: Best Practice and New Methods (2009) and he is co-editor of the journal Applied Spatial Analysis and Policy (ASAP).
Oliver Duke-Williams completed his PhD in the School of Geography at the University of Leeds and is now Senior Research Fellow and Deputy Director of CIDER, working remotely from his home in Walthamstow, London. His research interests include methods and reasons for collecting and using small area interaction data, the effects of disclosure control on Census and survey data, and dissemination of data sets so as to promote their widespread usage. As part of the ESRC Census Programme, he also directs a research network which explores the potential benefits and implications of distributing census data via data feed APIs rather than the traditional bulk methods used with previous censuses.
Adam Dennett studied Geography as an undergraduate at Lancaster University before training as a secondary school teacher at the University of Cambridge. After some years in the teaching profession, he returned to higher education and completed a Masters degree at the University of Leeds where he now remains as a researcher, working full-time for CIDER and studying part-time for a PhD on the development of a migration-based area classification framework. His research interests lie in the quantitative analysis of population; principally internal migration flows. He has recently published papers in Population Trends and Population Space and Place relating to methodological developments in the analysis of internal migration in Britain and he is currently working on a European Spatial Planning Observatory Network project known as DEMIFER (DEmographic and MIgratory Flows affecting European Regions and cities).
