Analyze the factors that influence a person’s migrability
The migrability of an individual refers to the probability or probability that they will migrate. There are a few prominent factors that influence this decision.
One main factor is distance. Ravenstein’s distance reduction law states that as the distance from the country of destination to the country of origin increases, someone is less likely to emigrate due to unfamiliarity with an environment, a culture, a way of life completely outsiders and even assimilation problems and psychic costs. Research has shown that more than half of immigrants in the United States come from neighboring Mexico, which is only 3,000 km away from the border, while minority Mexican migrants go further. This shows how the distance deterioration theory is a major influence on the destination of migration and whether they will even migrate. The closer the destination is, the lower the emotional costs and therefore the more likely migration is to occur.
Another important factor is the degree of difference in culture and way of life in the country of destination compared to the country of origin. few choose to emigrate to countries like Japan where the likelihood of acculturation and even integration is unlikely, as the Japanese have their own unique way of thinking that is foreign to much of the world or even strange. In events where it is such a high level of difficulty connecting with the local population, one is less likely to choose to uproot and take on such a challenge in foreign territory. A famous case is that of the world-famous journalist and writer Pico Iyer, but there are few like him.
Another main factor affecting the decision to migrate would be the attractiveness of the pull factors in the host country along with that of the push factors in the country of origin. In India, Mumbai, Chennai, New Delhi, and many other cities, the richest and best-educated young people are leaving the country in greater numbers. Pollution push factors are serious when our pollution is above official guidelines. Meanwhile, the prospect of a high-paying job as an engineer or otherwise in a US, UK suburb or city like London or New York is appealing. When there is such a stark contrast in the standard of living in the host country, it is not unusual for people to make the decision to migrate in the interests of career prospects and long-term prosperity. If the contrasts are not so stark, they may not have as much incentive to make such a drastic change in their lives.
