Pourquoi les immigrés portugais veulent-ils tant retourner au pays ?
Abstract[eng] The 2003 Survey on Immigrants’ Transition to Retirement helps one to understand why Portuguese residents in France express intentions to return to their home country in twice the proportion of their Spanish and Italian counterparts. Community differences in educational attainment, duration of stay , proficiency in French, location of relatives, and origin of spouse (for married respondents) explain a large share of the gaps. The application of non-linear decomposition methods reveals that differences between the characteristics chosen account for almost 70 percent of the gaps, while the differentiated effect of factors influencing the desired retirement location explains one-third. [fre] L’enquête sur le Passage à la Retraite des Immigrés de 2003 nous aide à comprendre pourquoi les ressortissants d’origine portugaise résidant en France se singularisent par des intentions de retour au pays à la retraite deux fois supérieures à celles de leurs homologues espagnols et italiens. Les différences communautaires en termes de niveau d’éducation, durée de séjour, maîtrise de la langue française, localisation des membres de la famille et origine de l’éventuel conjoint expliquent une part importante des écarts. L’application de techniques de décomposition non-linéaire révèle que près de 70 % de ces écarts s’expliquent par des différences entre les caractéristiques retenues, tandis qu’un tiers d’entre eux est lié à l’effet différencié des facteurs influençant le souhait de localisation à la retraite.
