The focus of this article is on the limitations inhibiting free-flow internal and international migration in developing countries using the example of India. Trends in urbanization, demographic transition, and mobility are examined for their impact on migration and the population. The author discusses the effects of natural increase and the extent to which increased net migration affects both overpopulation and the loss of professionals through out-migration. Data are from national censuses for 1961-1981.
