Initial post- RE: Forum #9 – Migration and Residential Mobility (175 words)
This chapter introduces migration and residential mobility. It begins with the concepts of migration and recurrent movement versus nonrecurrent movement, followed by a discussion of the factors driving migration, including forced migration. The chapter then introduces tools to measure migration, including net migration and the gravity model. The chapter then turns to residential mobility (i.e., within a city, metropolitan area, county, or province) and the behavioral processes that are involved. The concept of directional bias in these movements is presented. The chapter provides a practical exercise in GIS and the accessibility index and population potential formula, utilizing data from Los Angeles. The chapter illustrates migration patterns using data from the United States and Australia. International immigration and immigration to the United States are then addressed. Following this is a discussion of transnational identities, in which immigrants continue to identify with both their former country and their new one. The effect of immigration on New York is discussed as an example.The chapter concludes with the rural-to-urban migration that is occurring in the developing world, using China as an example.
Please select at least one of the topics covered in this chapter and describe the concepts and or compare and contrast the information learned in this chapter.

RE: Forum #9 – Migration and Residential Mobility
Any residential mobility will have an affect on social and behavioral impacts.(Greene and Pick) Thus, there need to be spaces that create a sense of idenitiy in the community. Public space should be viewed as places that create a venue for a diverse and fragmented society to enhance a common set of experiences. By encouraging the creation of these public spaces, then we combine recreation with the knowledge of nature. And behavior is influenced by the physical environment is experienced through our senses. The best way to interact is through face to face communication, a primary condition for future development and human culture, to reproduce and maintain culture, ideas and beliefs. This is best explained through the active participation of our primary group: family members, the neighborhood and from the old to young. (Stein and Spreckelmeyer)

RE: Forum #9 – Migration and Residential Mobility
For this assignment, I decided to do the contrast of migration and residential mobility. In this chapter, it describes migration as a fundamental aspect of movement from one community, state, or nation to another. While residential mobility is the basic movement of one metropolitan area or other urban units such as urban areas or cities(Greene and Pick,2012). There are also many different types of migration such as Internal migration: moving within a state, country or continent, external migration: moving to a different state, country or continent, emigration: leaving one country to move to another, seasonal immigration: moving with each season or in response to labor or climate changes, like if someone bought or summer house or has to move for a job opportunity(National Geograhic Society, 2015).
