The main aim of the study is to show the influence of migration on the dynamics of the real growth of population in all the 16 present-day voivodeships, with a division into urban and rural areas. Only definitive (permanent) internal and interna- tional (foreign) migrations were taken into consideration here. Since migration is a two- directional movement − inflow (immigration) to a given territory and outflow (emigra- tion) from the former place of residence − we dealt here both with newcomers (incoming population, immigrants) to the territory of all 16 voivodeships and with the population leaving given voivodeships permanently. A particularly detailed analysis was applied to net migrations or migration balances.
