The migration pattern in India indicates that the percentage of migrants to total enumerated population is consistently declining among both the male and the female population. Employment among males and marriage among females were found to be the most dominant factors behind their movement, irrespective of the type of movement or distance of movement. This paper discusses the emerging migration pattern in India using place of birth and place of last residence concept data. Census data from 1961 to 1991 are used to examine the migration level, reasons for migration by type of migration streams, work force participation rate education level of migrants.
