The Culture of Mexican Migration: A Theoretical and Empirical Analysis.
Kandel, William; Massey, Douglas S.
Social Forces, v80 n3 p981-1004 Mar 2002
Examines a Mexican "culture of migration," in which U.S. migration becomes an expectation for young people. Among approximately 7,000 secondary students surveyed in Zacatecas (Mexico), adolescents from families involved in U.S. migration were more likely to aspire to live and work in the United States, increasing the likelihood they would drop out and eventually migrate.
