Políticas públicas y migración interna en la República Bolivariana de Venezuela contemporánea

Transformations in the production apparatus, changes in the global economy and certain political and social factors have given rise to various patterns of territorial mobility. This paper analyses trends in internal migration in the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela from 1971 to 2001. On the basis of information from national population and housing censuses, multiregional origin-destination matrices were established identifying the direction of migration flows and traditional and emerging push and pull factors of migration. Using the human development index, migratory flows between regions of high, medium and low levels of human development were determined, therefore demonstrating the uneven distribution of production activities in the country. Lastly, the results were analysed in the context of historical and structural processes, showing the link between policy decisions, each region’s economic emergence and the dynamics of internal migration.
