Period and cohort age patterns of US migration, 1948–1993: Are American males migrating less?

Period and cohort age patterns of US migration, 1948–1993: Are American males migrating less? Has the national intercounty migration level of American males been experiencing a decline over the past half-century? What differences in age patterns have period and cohort migration schedules exhibited during this period? These fundamental questions are addressed in this paper. We find that both period and cohort levels of migration have indeed been declining, with the principal consequence for age patterns being a parallel decline in the levels of young-adult migration. American males are moving less, and their peak migration rate in the young-adult years has steadily moved to a younger age over time. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Population Research and Policy Review Springer Journals

Abstract

Has the national intercounty migration level of American males been experiencing a decline over the past half-century? What differences in age patterns have period and cohort migration schedules exhibited during this period? These fundamental questions are addressed in this paper. We find that both period and cohort levels of migration have indeed been declining, with the principal consequence for age patterns being a parallel decline in the levels of young-adult migration. American males are moving less, and their peak migration rate in the young-adult years has steadily moved to a younger age over time.
