Originally it was planned to intensively study the spatial aspects
of selected migration topics by means of a sample survey in areas chosen
in the light of an analysis of census data. This idea has been
transformed into a general study of the geography of migration in
Tasmania between 1921 and 1961. It soon became clear in the preliminary
investigation of the demographic and migratory 'background' that
a general survey was necessary to identify the problems that require
intensive study and to provide a general frame of reference.
Perhaps a word is called for about the large number of tables
included in the second volume of the thesis: they arise from the
writer's belief that the analysis of quantitative data is seriously
impaired if the basic material is not available for examination. Not
only do the 181 tables discussed in the text and the three appendix
tables contain considerable information that has had to be neglected
in order to keep the study within reasonable limits but also the tables
that have not been included in the thesis. These tables are available
and readers interested in greater detail should contact the writer-
care of the Department of Geography in the University of Tasmania.
