Rural to Urban Adjustment
Abramson, Jane A.
Personal interviews with 100 former farm operators living in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, were conducted in an attempt to understand the nature of the adjustment process caused by migration from rural to urban surroundings. Requirements for inclusion in the study were that respondents had owned or operated a farm for at least 3 years, had left their farms within 10 years of the interview, and were below retirement age and still in the labor force at the time of migration. Pre-migration characteristics, the migration decision process, and post-migration adjustment were analyzed to determine if urban adjustment could be predicted prior to migration. A predictive index was developed, based on the variables of educational level, previous non-agricultural work experience, previous geographic mobility, type of migration decision process, and selectivity in choosing a new location.
