Abstract:

The data in this report describe a positive relationship between military migration and civilian migration in communities surrounding Army installations. This relationship is determined by the size of the military labor force in relation to the size of the civilian labor force. The number of civilian migrants into or out of a county between 1965 and 1970 can be estimated from data reflecting the size of the military labor force and the number of military migrants involved. The data used in this research are too outdated to be of real significance to accurate population projections for Army-induced migration, but they do support the contention that civilian migration is directly related to military migration and that the relationship in many areas in the United States is quite strong.
