Population Census and Intercensal Population Survey data permit description of the origin–destination patterns that characterize interregional migration flows in Indonesia. Application of the framework of population redistribution proposed by Long (1985) results in indications of over-urbanization, sub-urbanization and metropolitan-to-non-metropolitan migration. However, indications of sub-urbanization and metropolitan-to-non-metropolitan migration are weak, as migrants originate in diverse areas of the country but move mostly to particular areas of Java — mainly Jakarta and its surroundings.
