WELCOME TO A SURVEY ON SECOND GENERATION RETURN MIGRATION
This survey will collect data for a research project that is being administered under the auspices of the University of Ottawa, in Canada.
The survey collects information from the children of Caribbean migrants whose parents left the Caribbean for countries like the United States, the United Kingdom, Canada, or elsewhere. To participate in the survey, the children of these migrants would have been born outside the Caribbean or left the Caribbean when they were young. But, at some point, they would have returned to the Caribbean during their adult years to live or work. In the literature these returnees are called second generation return migrants.

The research will explore whether the migration patterns of these second generation return migrants might affect economic growth in the Caribbean. For example, are second generation return migrants working, starting businesses, contributing to the society or the economy, or volunteering in their new home?
Are you a second generation return migrant? If you decide to participate in this research project, the questionnaire should take you about 15 minutes to complete. All of your responses will be kept confidential. No personal information will be noted in the final paper or provided to the University of Ottawa. However, the data collected will be aggregated and presented in a summary fashion.
Thank you for your interest in this research. Please share the page with others who might be interested in participating in the research.

Caribbean migration is best characterized as a cyclical pattern of people leaving and returning.
