Migration is harder to define and frequently poorly documented, one of the challenges towards study of migration are nature of its interdisciplinary linkages and, its historical context; it has involved contributions from economic and social historians and historical geographers as well as population specialists. Migration also has important social and cultural effects on patterns of languages religion, and literacy. In the Pakistan, migration has been a constant factor related with the development. This paper largely probes into migration of rural dwellers to urban centers in Pakistan. The paper examines various parameters such as, place of origin of migrants; population growth rates in the place of origin; public policies to curb population; unemployment; lack of health and education facilities and lawlessness. The findings are based upon the scientific methodology of randomly selecting study units. The process involves selection of statistically representative samples of respondents stratified by geographical distribution.
