3 Overall distribution of net migration rates for départements, 1851–66 to 1975–82. 9 in 1891– 1911). However, elsewhere the annual rate of gain had increased, for example in Seine-et-Oise in the Paris suburbs, and in Var on the Provençal coast, while Alpes Maritimes now led the way with the highest rate of migrant gain. By the interwar period the intensity of the overall net rate of migrant loss in the declining départements had fallen somewhat: only 12 départements now had annual net rates of loss greater than four persons per thousand (Fig.

The causes of migration from the countryside were put down to influences such as education (le Bon 1895, Méline 1905), military service (Manceau 1901, Bertillon 1911), and the domination in the rural imagination (especially for women) of the town as a place of wealth, power, splendour and the fulfilment of desires (Verhaeren 1893, 1898). These views were all, of course, largely impressionistic or based on prejudice. Most of the writers were sitting at their desks in Paris. Detailed empirical and analytical studies of the phenomenon were slow to develop, but these tended to see causality as lying much more in the poor conditions of agricultural life, taking a more realistic view of the real depths of rural poverty and stressing such factors as the lack of capital to maintain land in profitable cultivation or to bring it into cultivation, the intermittence of agricultural employment, combining winter labour surpluses with summer shortages (the centuries-old stimulus to seasonal migration), and the existence of divided inheritance (also blamed for low population fertility) (Dumont 1890, Vandervelde 1903, Bertillon 1911).

This coexistence of a national migration field based on the capital with smaller local fields implies a discontinuous migration field for any one locality, with little contact with places intervening between the local centre and Paris (Ogden 1980). Regional migration fields centred on Marseille, Toulouse, Lyon, Bordeaux and other cities have continued to be of importance right up to the present day, including the postwar period of most rapid urbanization (Winchester 1977, pp. 9, 26, Châtelain 1956).
