Factors Affecting Former Residentsäó» Returning to Rural Communities
Jon Cromartie (au); Christiane von Reichert (au); Ryan Arthun (au)
Throughout rural America, hundreds of communities face the difficult challenge of adjusting economically and socially to dwindling populations. High school graduates leave for college, good-paying jobs, the military, or simply to see the world, and only a small number return. Those who do return often bring spouses and young children back with them, along with education and skills gained elsewhere. This study reports on the factors that influence decisions to move back to rural areas and the impacts that return migrant make on home communities. Limited rural employment opportunities are barriers for those considering a move back home. Those who do return find ways to secure employment, but are primarily motivated by family considerations. Return migrants use skills and experiences acquired elsewhere, and their commitment to their places of origin, in ways that uniquely impact rural communities. Table and figures. This is a print on demand report.
