Breschi, Marco and Manfredini, Matteo and Fornasin, Alessio (2011) Demographic responses to short-term stress in a 19th century Tuscan population: the case of household out-migration. Demographic Research, Vol. 25 (15), p. 491-512. eISSN 1435-9871. Article.
This paper deals with the relationship between household emigration and short-term crisis in a rural community of mid-19th century Tuscany. Based on a detailed reconstruction of individual and household life-histories, the paper shows the close relationship between household emigration and different kinds of short-term stresses, either economic, epidemiologic or within the household. Despite the different response by SES - with the poorest strata of the population much exposed to price changes and mortality crisis - the death of the household head appears as one of the most powerful factor of household emigration.
