The author examines the determinants of rural-to-urban migration in India. Findings indicate that rural out-migration is most affected by the number of persons who had previously migrated from the same village, the distance from the village to the nearest large city or town and main road, the sex ratio of the village, and the educational level of its inhabitants. Data are from a 1984 survey.
