Haley McAvay (Ined) – “Pathways out of the Parental Home: Contextual Determinants of Home-Leaving Patterns Across Second Generation Immigrant Origins in France
Abstract : This paper uses the Echantillon démographique permanent, a large longitudinal data set from France, matched with contextual characteristics from the census, to explore the neighborhood-level determinants of leaving the parental home among second generation immigrants and French natives. We focus on both the role of the ethnoracial and socioeconomic composition of the original neighborhood on types of departure, and whether these effects are similar across second generation origins and natives. The findings show that moving out is less likely in neighborhoods with higher shares of immigrants and among the second generation, particularly of North and Sub-Saharan African origin. The effect of neighborhood ethnoracial composition is particularly salient for the second generation. Moreover, patterns vary considerably when the type of decohabitation pathway is considered. Youth from co-ethnic immigrant neighborhoods are more likely to leave the home for more traditional arrangements such as marriage. These findings offer new contributions to the broader literature on transitions to adulthood and neighborhood effects as well as on second generation outcomes in France.
