Abstract The focus of the paper is on the question of how rural people anticipate forced moves as a result of flood control projects and how they change their life in accepting separation from familiar surroundings. A model of forced migration is presented which sees the variables of socio-economic status, knowledge of reservoir projects, vested interests and the degree of identification with place of affected persons as producing differential apprehension over moving. Differential apprehension is then seen as producing different attitudes toward the project which will influence the type of migration plans. To test this model of forced migration, data were obtained by means of personal interview with 261 adults located in two areas about to be flooded by multipurpose reservoirs. Goodman and Kruskal's gamma was used as the measure of association for the ordinal data. (Author)
