POPULATION CHANGES 1947
part of building repair is not shown in official statistics, housing supply
could not keep pace with increase of population. On the contrary, immigra-
tion caused further deterioration in general housing conditions, but this
fact did not check the influx of population. In some cases, for instance
in Munich, the population of the adjoining Landkreise increased by the same
or a higher rate than the population of the city, whereas in all other Land-
kreise, more remote from the urban center, the rate of increase was compara-
tively low, as indicated in the following table.

D. Iatrasonal Movenents
As a result of the same factors which in 1947 brought about a return
of population movement from the country to the cities, a simultaneous stream
of migration took place from Bavaria to Vuerttemberg-Baden and Hesse.
As in the case of migration from the country to the cities, the exis-
tence of this intrazonal migration is apparent only in the differences In
the
rates of increase of the three Laender. ID 1947, total population increased:
in Bavaria by 1. percent, in ferttemberg-Baden by 2.9 percent. and in Hesse,
by 2.6 percent Jp
In Bavaria, the total increase rate exceeded the natural increase
rate of population, indicating that even there, there was a net immigration.
