ZELINSKY MODEL
• This is the Zelinsky Model of Mobility
Transition, it claims that the type of
migration that occurs within a country
depends on how developed it is or what
type of society it is.
• In the Demographic Transition Model
(DTM) there is a connection between its
stages and migration.
PHASE ONE
• Phase one, Pre-modern Traditional Society, this is right
before the beginning of urbanization when there is
very little migration and natural increase rates are at
zero.
PHASE TWO
• Phase two, Early Transitional Society, There is
a large rate of movement from rural to urban
areas and there is a rapid rate of natural
increase.
PHASE THREE
• Phase three, Late Transitional Society, this is
when there is more urban movement in
migration than rural to urban movement.
These are complex circulatory movements.
PHASE FOUR
Phase four, Advanced Society, there is really only
large movements in migration from city to city,
this is slight to moderate rate of natural
increase.
PHASE FIVE
•
Phase five, Future Super advanced
Society, almost all residential migration
may be of the interurban and intraurban
variety. There is a stable morality
pattern.
