The purpose of this paper is to describe, discuss, and analyze recent patterns of interregional migration in the USSR and to provide some insight into the relationship between these movements and regional levels of development. The first of the four sections is aimed at providing a brief overview of interregional population movements from the latter years of the Russian Empire to 1959. This is followed by a selective review of post-1959 migration studies, most of which were written by Soviet authors. In the third section, data from these studies, the 1970 Census, and other sources are pieced together in an attempt to describe the changing patterns of interregional migrattion from 1959 through 1969. The paper concludes with an analysis of the regional migration balances for the last two years of this period as given by the 1970 Census.
