Chicano Return Migration to the Southwest: An Integrated Human Capital Approach

Chicano Return Migration to the Southwest: An Integrated Human Capital Approach This study uses an integrated human capital framework to examine the relationship between human capital, employment and ethnic factors and return migration to the Southwest among Chicanos. The sample used in the study is derived from the 1980 Public Use Microdata Samples and contains 1,926 Chicano householders between the ages of 25 and 64 who were born in one of five southwest states, lived outside of this region in 1975, and worked in the civilian labor force at any time between 1975 and 1980. The results suggest that various human capital, employment and ethnic composition variables are important predictors of Chicano return migration. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png International Migration Review SAGE

Abstract

This study uses an integrated human capital framework to examine the relationship between human capital, employment and ethnic factors and return migration to the Southwest among Chicanos. The sample used in the study is derived from the 1980 Public Use Microdata Samples and contains 1,926 Chicano householders between the ages of 25 and 64 who were born in one of five southwest states, lived outside of this region in 1975, and worked in the civilian labor force at any time between 1975 and 1980. The results suggest that various human capital, employment and ethnic composition variables are important predictors of Chicano return migration.
