AbstractA study of various streams of migration is as important as studying the migration in general. Out of the four streams of migration viz. rural-to-rural, rural-to-urban, urban-to-urban and urban-to-rural; rural-to-rural migration is the most widespread in terms of volume of people involved. This work is an attempt to study rural-to-rural in-migration in Himachal Pradesh from other states of India. Census is the most authentic source of data on migration in India. Census data for census years 1991 and 2001 have been analyzed to underline the patterns of rural-to-rural migration stream in Himachal Pradesh. This analysis is based on data on place of last residence.
