Family size and structure

Family size and structure are micro-level migration drivers that encourage and facilitate migration of some family members to diversify household risk and maximise household income as well as discourage and constrain migration for other family members.

Key studies include Oded & Levhari (1982) on the new economics of labour migration and migration as risk diversification; Gubhaju & De Jong (2009) for quantitative evidence on the importance of individual and household considerations in migration decision-making; and De Jong (2000) on family structure and migration intentions.

Studies listed under this migration driver often refer to the new economics of labour migration (NELM), risk diversification, life cycle factors, and the dynamics of single and dual-earner households.

Losses and Gains to Developing Countries from the Migration of Educated Workers: An Overview of Recent Research, and New Reflections

Authors Oded STARK, Simon C. FAN
Description
This paper synthesizes and extends recent research on “The New Economics of the Brain Drain.” In a unified framework, the paper shows that while recently identified adverse repercussions of the brain drain exacerbate the long-recognized negative impact of the brain drain, longer-term consequences turn the brain drain into the harbinger of powerful gains. These gains have been studied already in recent research, or merit attention in future research.
