TOWARD A BALANCE SHEET OF PUERTO RICAN MIGRATION.
SENIOR, CLARENCE; WATKINS, DONALD O.
PATTERNS OF MIGRATION WITHIN PUERTO RICO AND TO AND FROM THE UNITED STATES ARE EXAMINED IN DEPTH IN THIS DISCUSSION. SUCH PROBLEMS AS THE HIGH MOBILITY OF PUERTO RICAN SCHOOL CHILDREN IN THE UNITED STATES (NEW YORK CITY ESPECIALLY) AND PUERTO RICAN EMPLOYMENT PATTERNS ARE ELABORATED ON IN THE DISCUSSION, AND DATA ON THE "SELECTIVITY PROCESS" IN MIGRATION IS PRESENTED. IT IS FELT THAT MIGRATING OFFERS THE PUERTO RICAN AND HIS FAMILY MORE ECONOMIC AND SOCIAL OPPORTUNITIES THAN THEY HAD PREVIOUSLY. MOREOVER THERE ARE GAINS FOR THE AREA MIGRATED TO AS WELL AS FOR THE AREA FROM WHICH THE MIGRANT HAS DEPARTED BECAUSE OF A REDISTRIBUTION OF MANPOWER ACCORDING TO SUPPLY AND DEMAND. A CRITICALLY ANNOTATED BIBLIOGRAPHY OF BOOKS, ESSAYS, REPORTS, SPEECHES, AND SURVEYS FOLLOWS THIS DISCUSSION. THIS ARTICLE IS PUBLISHED IN "STATUS OF PUERTO RICO--, SELECTED BACKGROUND STUDIES, FOR THE UNITED STATES-PUERTO RICO COMMISSION ON THE STATUS OF PUERTO RICO," WASHINGTON, D.C., U.S. GOVERNMENT PRINTING OFFICE, 1966.
