Al. (1938) had already provided better testable hypotheses. With recognition that migrants “are not a random sample of the parent population,” they stated: It is probable that the strength of the selective factors operating to produce migration differentials will vary depending on the types of communities to and from which the migration takes place, on the distance spanned in the migration, and on the time at which the migration occurs. (Thomas et. al. 1938: 7) Though the statement is a-theoretical, these structural and semistructural factors – community, distance and time – are some of the most important sociological variables of migration.

1966:56) All this tells us is that different individuals have different reasons. To distinguish positive and negative selection, Lee (1966) said that migrants responding primarily to “plus” factors at destination are positively selected, and those responding primarily to “minus” factors at origin negatively selected, which explains practically nothing theoretically or empirically. , high wage and low wage, good climate and bad climate. If a refugee has escaped from political turmoil to come to a politically stable country, is this person responding to a “minus” factor (instability at origin) or a “plus” factor (stability at destination)?
