Introduction: Explanation of the effects and outcomes of migration on migrants in terms of urban life satisfaction provides a perspective about the probability of continuing residency in the city or relocation of migrants, from whom the main problems of rural environments about disposal of the population can be inferred.
Method: The present study is applied and descriptive-analytical. It investigates the various aspects of migrants’ satisfaction from living in Isfahan metropolis, and their overall satisfaction with migration. The statistical population includes those heads of households who, in their last spatial mobility and for permanent residency, have migrated from rural areas to Isfahan city. The sample size of the study is 400 people. The data were gathered through questionnaires. Analysis of the data was carried out using some statistical tests and applying SPSS software.
Findings: Findings showed that the migrants were highly satisfied with their current migration. Respondents’ satisfaction with their quality of life, occupational status, and household income-expense were above the average level. Satisfaction with quality of life and occupational status had a statistically significant and positive effect on overall satisfaction with migration. No statistically significant difference was found between the average satisfaction level of intra-provincial migrants and inter-provincial ones.
Discussion: Policymaking and planning processes should be prepared in such a way that factors underlying life satisfaction can be created and developed in rural areas too. Otherwise, the migration of the rural population will increase the problems of involved villages and cities.
