Economic and Cultural Influences on the Decision to Leave Home in Peninsular Malaysia

  • Johnson, R-W
  • DaVanzo, J

Although the departure of children from parental home is an important life-cycle event, few studies have investigated nestleaving in developing countries. We find that the departure of children, especially sons, responds to economic incentives, including housing costs, family business, education and economic growth, and that ethnic differences in nestleaving are important.
