The issue of internal migration in Greece in recent years is an important subject of research. Since changes introduced over the last decades in Greece have caused significant reallocation of the population of the country. This fact raises the interest in studying and identifying those factors that influence the migration of Greeks from region to region. The purpose of this dissertation is to investigate demographic and socio - economic factors that may affect population mobility within the country, using data from the census of 2001. The percentage of urban population, the overall unemployment rate of the population, the mean number of years of completed educational level of the population, the tertiary sector of economic activity, participation in the workplace, per capita income and long-term unemployment, are the factors that were selected to examine their influence on internal migration. The use of multiple linear regression (particularly of the method of backward elimination), indicate that the rate of unemployment and the tertiary sector of economic activity are important factors influencing internal migration. The analysis was performed with SPSS.
