The importance of the de-concentrative function of migration processes rises in Czechia lately, especially in connection with suburbanization development. Thus, a projection of this trend to methodology of demarcation of migration regions comes forward. The main objective of this contribution is a comparison of results of migration regionalization of the model area of the South Bohemian region, which was realized by two methods. The first one reflects traditional basic functions of migration (concentrative and integrative), the second one respects the above-mentioned newer deconcentrative tendencies of migration flows.
