Collective migration  (COLLECTIVE migration)

Where large groups of individuals or families decide to migrate (801-1*) together collective migration2 will result; in the absence of concerted action, the movement is referred to as individual migration1; where the number of migrants is very large this may be called mass migration3. The term exodus4 may be used for a sudden mass migration caused by some emergency or catastrophe.
