Cohort Size and Migration in a West Indian Population.
Brittain, Ann W.
International Migration Review, v24 n4 p703-21 Win 1990
Data from St. Barthelemy (French West Indies) show that, for people born from 1878 to 1967, neither cohort size nor fluctuations in external demands for labor had a lasting effect on the probability of eventual migration. Emigration slowed only after development of local tourism brought prosperity to the island. (AF)
