In Turkey, a large gap in economic development has encouraged migration from less developed to more developed provinces. The aim of this study is to study in detail the relationship between migrants and the concentric zones surrounding them from 2007 until 2012. According to the results of the study, the highest amount of migration is shown to be between the origin province and a 400km concentric zone, beyond which they gradually decrease. This pattern is often repeated, but in less populated provinces, which are further from large metropolitan areas, it becomes more homogenous, with unique peaks in the more distant concentric zones.
