|dc.description.abstract||We review the different migration episodes in Spain since the beginning of the 20th century,with special emphasis on the pieces of empirical work that have tried to identify the factorsbehind them. Migrations abroad for the 1900-1950 and 1950-1973 periods are considered.Foreign immigration is also discussed. Special attention is devoted to internal migration, bothto inter-regional and intra-regional flows. Since the early 1980?s net inter-regional flows havefallen and, following the expansion of the welfare state, the traditionally poor and highunemployment regions have become net immigration regions, while the reverse hashappened with the better off ones. Intra-regional migration, which has not received muchattention so far, is also analysed to understand its spectacular increase in all regions since1982. This is associated to the increased employment opportunities in the services sectorthat has prompted moves (mainly within regions), mostly of skilled workers, towards largertowns where the new jobs are.||en_US|
