Leaving Home and Destination of Early Nest-Leavers: Ethnicity, Spaces and Prices

Author

Abstract

This study examines ethnic differences in leaving home and the choice of destination accommodation. Using unique individual administrative panel data, we study the mobility of the entire birth cohort 1983 living in the Netherlands. In contrast to previous studies, this paper includes the geographical location and quality of destination living arrangement in the analysis in an attempt to explain ethnic differences in parental home leaving. We show that ethnic minority youth, in particular Turkish and Moroccan young adults, improve their housing quality when leaving the parental home. This improvement clearly outweighs the effects of more family-oriented attitudes among Turkish and Moroccan households resulting in even earlier home-leaving than youth of Dutch origin. Our results on the early home leaving behaviour of ethnic minority youth are robust with regard to the geographical distance of nest-leavers from the parental home.
