Abstract

This article analyses the reasons for returning and not returning to rural U.S. communities. The life course segment considered here captures a critical “settling down” period when career and family obligations overlap and return migration peaks. It shows that limited rural employment opportunities are barriers for nonreturnees. While others intent on returning find ways to secure or create employment but are primarily influenced to move home by family concerns. Connections to the larger social and physical environment of the community are important as well
