The second complete census in the history of Zambia furnishes numerous opportunities for the study of social and economic change. In this paper, we analyze district-level changes in population which have resulted from internal migration. We focus upon the question: What are the determinants of migration in Zambia? In particular, we ask: What are the determinants of the exodus of people from the rural districts of Zambia?
