The Shifting Pattern of Black Migration From and Into the Nonmetropolitan South, 1965-95

This report measures the amount of Black migration from and to the nonmetropolitan parts of the South from 1965-70 to 1990-95. Data are shown for 1990-95 for two key characteristics of the migrants--education and income. Comparisons are also made with the non-Black population, and population trends for 1990 to 2000 are examined for counties with a large proportion of Black residents.

Keywords: migration, Black population, south, rural, nonmetropolitan
