Family Mobility: An Examination of Factors Affecting Migration.
Kirschenbaum, Alan B.
The major purpose of this study was to examine one set of factors affecting family mobility, as well as to ascertain the circumstances influencing a choice of destination. Data employed were based upon the 1960 one-in-a-thousand sample Census. Family unit movement was distinguished from individual movement, as was mobility from migration. Major emphasis was upon the basic determinants of mobility. Overall, it was found that the occupational career cycle, increasing opportunities, and economic stress fostered mobility. (NTIS)
