Location intentions of immigrants at retirement: stay/return or go 'back and forth'?
This article analyses the intentions of immigrants regarding their residential choice after retirement. Three options are investigated: stay in the host country, go back to the origin country and adopt a mobile strategy, sharing time between the host and the origin country (defined as 'back and forth'). For this purpose, we analyse a cross section of non-French nationals aged above 45 who are not yet retired. The impacts of several potential determinants of such intentions are investigated, with particular focus on the effect of the actual location of the respondents' children. The estimation is conducted using a multinomial Logit model. Instrumental variable technique is used to address the issue of endogenous children's location with respect to parents' location intention. Results suggest that the immigrants prefer to return rather than stay in the host country when their children live in the country of origin. However, children's location does not seem to affect the 'back and forth' strategy with respect to staying in the host country.
