Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


In this paper, GERTS III is presented as a possible approach for simulating regional migration patterns. Fourteen years of aggregate Canadian census data were compiled and a mathematical model was constructed to describe the patterns of inter-regional migration viewed as a discrete time Markov process. A GERTS III network was developed to analyze and describe this process. Measures of population mobility, degree of mobility and retention were derived. The implications for policy makers are highlighted.
