Geographical Mobility: March 1983 to March 1984

Written by:
Report Number P20-407


This report provides information on the geographical mobility of Americans between March 1983 and March 1984. The text highlights some of the changes that occurred, with particular reference to the volume and rate of movement, changes in the types of movement, the characteristics of movers, and changes in the patterns of population redistribution attributable to geographical mobility. The report’s detailed data tabulations provide information on these and other subjects. All data are from the Current Population Survey, which is conducted monthly by the Bureau of the Census. Further information on the March 1984 Current Population Survey is contained in the appendix of this report; general information on the survey is contained in The Current Population Survey: Design and Methodology (U.S. Bureau of the Census, 1978).

As the data in this report are derived from a survey, estimates are subject to sampling variability. Caution should be exercised, particularly when estimates are based on a small number of cases and when comparisions are made between numbers of similar magnitude. Information on the sampling variability of the estimates in this report is contained in Appendix B. Source and Reliability of Estimates.
