Various forms of population mobility are usually studied independently and thus lacking information if there is a connection between migration processes and if so, whether it is positive or negative. Based on the correlation method, this paper presents a study of the relationship between migration and commuting by the example of Vojvodina. Population and economic activities in Vojvodina are unevenly distributed and mainly concentrated to certain areas. Considering that the majority of rural population is no longer engaged in agriculture and that there are not enough local jobs in rural areas, numerous rural residents commute to work to cities. So, the majority of commuting flows in Vojvodina are flows of labour force from rural to urban areas. Results of statistical analysis, based on data about migrations to rural settlements of Vojvodina and data about divergent commuters, have shown a positive correlation between the two types of population mobility for all observed settlements (defined as addition), and that a significant proportion of migration variations can be explained by variations in the scope of commuting flows.
