What exactly made northern Croatia and southern Transylvania so attractive for internal migrants? Heavy industry? What else?Within Hungary this was the trend of internal migration in the decades before 1910, based on the places of birth
The balance of migration, the greener areas had an active balance (migrants went there), the redder/pinkish ones had passive balance (migrants went from there).
Green=areas of immigration, pink=counties and towns sending out population.
Second map, emigration to the USA between 1899-1913.
Generally the population would continue to move to the bigger cities, industrial zones as deaf tuner already pointed it out.
Also, I'm presuming that central Hungary was a popular destination for internal migrants to settle in due to its proximity to Budapest, correct?
The migration from rural areas to urban areas certainly makes sense. What years is this data showing?
As for emigration to the USA, it makes sense that, due to Hungary's Magyarization policy, it is the ethnic minorities of Hungary who are going to be disproportionately represented among emigrants. The same was true in Russia and in the Ottoman Empire, if I recall correctly.
