Migration is a dynamic component of population with reference to movement of people from one geographical area to another.

Migration can be classified into the following;

a)     Rural – rural migration

b)    Rural – urban migration

c)     Urban – urban migration

d)    Urban – rural migration

But attention will be focused on rapid urbanization process and this has caused great pressure on the existing infrastructure consequently.

This has however led to a deplorable living condition, unemployment and congestion of the urban centres.

The rationalization of infrastructure has become the order of the day and unemployment problem among the people in Ese-Odo Local Government Area of Ondo State.

STATEMENT OF THE PROBLEMS

There has been a large movement of people from rural areas to urban centres since independence

This project is meant to find out the causes and effects of rural-urban migration, which has now become rampant in the study area Ese-Odo Local Governemnt Area.

Perhaps, this movement may be as a result of inadequacy of socio amenities in the rural areas, searching for white collar jobs, educational purposes etc. But finance and time have been the major constraints to the realization of this project work.

b)    What are the effects of rural-urban migration in the area?

c)     What are the possible ways to check rural-urban migration in Ese-odo L.G.A.?
