The population migration and its effects on social economic and cultural aspect has recently occupied a considerable place in social science research. In the present paper we have developed a Probability model for the Human migration pattern. The parameters of the proposed model estimated by MLE estimation technique. The validity of our model checked through observed set of migration data.
