Family Ties, Migration, and Transitional Adjustment of Young Men from Eastern Kentucky.
Schwarzweller, Harry K.
The project was designed to follow up a specific population of young men from a relatively isolated ruralarea of eastern Kentucky who had been out of eighth grade for 10 years. The sample was drawn from enrollment lists for the school year 1949-50, obtained from 11 counties. The objective of the study was to investigate differences between migrant (youths who had moved to areas outside eastern Kentucky) and nonmigrant segments of the population. Conclusions indicated that the social situation of the migrant was not favorable for replacing family ties, resulting in the migrant's identifcation more with the home area than with the urban communiy; this in turn reinforced the migrant's definition of his situation as one of transiency rather than permanency.
