ABSTRACT
This paper presents a simple migration model which traces the link between individual decision making and observed aggregate migration behavior, The model clarifies and demonstrates the role of alternative opportunities in aggregate migration behavior using both diagrammatical and mathematical, presentations. It is shown that the definition of alternative opportunities does not necessarily depend on the distance between origin and destination.
