Population and Society in Contemporary Tibet

As one of the fundamental fields of research in population studies, migration involves movements that entail changing residence from a certain community type to another, and crossing the following boundaries: geographic, economic, or administrative. Such mobility may be perceived to have resulted from various converging elements from the destination and the place or origin, as well as circumstantial factors. Interest is thus directed not only to location changes, but also to the cultural, social, and economics implications of moving from one place to another. After reviewing the Tibetan Autonomous Region's basic migration patterns, the chapter concentrates mainly on providing an analysis from the data derived from the following surveys that include demographic, social, and economic aspect—the 1988 survey by the CTRC and the ISA, and the 2005 Lhasa Temporary Migration Survey.

Keywords:   population studies, 1988 survey, 2005 Lhasa Temporary Migration Survey, migration, boundaries, community type, migration patterns
