Abstract: Migration is a present phenomenon in Albania has been fluctuating over the last
two decades, overall performance tends to increase over time. This paper describes
the movement from rural areas to urban areas, developing countries in developed
countries and societies with difficult economic conditions in societies with better
economic conditions to achieve their higher economic and social needs. A sample
survey was conducted randomly, the three most important cities where the population
was displaced were selected. The purpose of this study is designed to explore the
social and economic determinants of rural migration in urban environments. The
literature review has served us to provide the theoretical background in this study.
Descriptive analysis shows that there are a number of reasons that push individuals
to migrate from rural to urban areas. Restriction of economic opportunities
is the main factor motivating individuals and families to migrate to urban areas.
Deviating massive migration of individuals from rural areas to urban areas can
be made by creating better economic opportunities.
