|Abstract:||This article ascertains dimensions of welfare migration to and from two large Australian cities (Sydney and Adelaide) and persons' motivations and perceptions of well-being after moving. Housing costs were crucial in out-movement from metropolitan areas, particularly Sydney. The desire to obtain work and to be closer to family members was important for an appreciable proportion of metropolitan-ward movers. Respondents were not turnover migrants since a strong majority had lived in their origin community for over five years. The welfare migration investigated here is an important part of wider intra-state migration.|
