Vesna Lukić, Branka Tošić


This article deals with education as an important determinant of the spatial mobility of population. Degree of migrants' education is associated with decision about migration and also with distance and direction of migration flows. This can be seen both in the case of definite migration as well as in the case of commuting. In this research we have carried out the rating and categorization of Serbian municipalities according to the share of convergent commuters in the total number of commuters, the share of convergent workers - commuters with college and university education, as well as according to average qualification degree of workers - commuters that live in those municipalities. Calculated index scores of dissimilarities of convergent and divergent commuters according to the achieved qualification degree presents the share of population which has to be reallocated among the educational groups in order to make educational structure of commuters who move towards individual municipalities the same as the structure of labor force that has these municipalities as the starting points.
