Abstract
The aim of the thesis is to establish what impact the selected push- and pull factors had on the total number of emigrants and three chosen professional groups, farmers, factory workers and maids, who emigrated from five different Swedish counties between the years of 1870 and 1900. Analysis will also cover responses of the professional subgroups, such as the rural/urban- and female/male professionals within each county. Among the collected demographic and economic push- and pull factors it will be decided what their specific impact was on the total emigration in each county and how the emigration differed between these counties. The ordinary least square technique was applied and the regression results indicated there were differences... (More)

The ordinary least square technique was applied and the regression results indicated there were differences between the subgroups, regarding their responses to the economic and demographic push- and pull factors, and different emigration patterns were displayed between the separate counties.
