One of the aspects characterizing the relationship between core and periphery is the process of migration. We will attempt to build a conceptual model of the migration balance and ruralization rate in different parts of a national territory, in regard to the structure of core and periphery. Israel passed within a short time from a situation of a developing country in the beginning of the 1950s to a developed country in the 1960s and 1970s. The model of ruralization rate and migration balance of Israel in the beginning was characteristic of migration passes from rural to urban regions. In contrast, in the 1970s the rural region adjacent to the metropolis absorbed the short term migration from the urban core and also the long term migration from the rural regions in the periphery.
