WELCOME TO A SURVEY ON SECOND GENERATION RETURN MIGRATION
Are you interested in participating in a survey that is part of a research project on migration patterns in the Caribbean? Your participation is entirely voluntary!
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. The research will explore whether the migration patterns of these children are affecting economic growth in the Caribbean. For example, are second generation immigrants working, starting businesses, contributing to the society or the economy, or volunteering in their new home?
To participate in the survey, these second generation immigrants would have been born outside the Caribbean or left the Caribbean when they were young. But, at some point, they would have moved to the Caribbean during their adult years to live and work. In the literature these returnees are called second generation return migrants (SGRM).
Are you a second generation return migrant? If you decide to participate in this research project, the survey should take you about 15 to 20 minutes to complete. All of your responses will be kept confidential. No personal information will be noted in the final paper. However, the data collected will be aggregated and presented in a summary fashion.

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