Title: Intra-urban migration and population redistribution in Victoria and Kowloon, Hong Kong
Authors: Miu, Kenneth Leung Kai
Keywords: Migration, Internal -- China -- Hong Kong

Issue Date: 1978
Abstract: The main task of the study was to explain the relocation patterns of intra-urban migration which was used as an entry point for analyzing population redistribution in the private housing market within the twin cities of Hong Kong. Better understanding of the mechanisms in the relocation of migrants would provide the rationale for predicting the future patterns of population redistribution. A number of variables were used in explaining the relocation patterns of a sample of migrants who moved between 1973 and 1974. The relationship between migration and these variables provided a basis for identifying the locations where population expansion would be fastest by migration. It was suggested that the convergence of people towards these growth centers might create the problems of traffic congestion and overtax the capacity of the existing local facilities and amenities. It was recommended that a sound policy of population distribution be formulated and as a basis for such a policy, the population increase in the growth centers be carefully monitored and more information about the capacity of the infra-structure of these locations be gathered.
