Abstract

Household structure often differs between migrant and non-migrant populations. The role played by social networks in easing the settlement process and the potentially stronger intergenerational ties in migrant families have been identified as factors explaining this. However, changes in economic conditions can influence the composition of already-settled immigrants’ households. Using data from the Economically Active Population Survey (EAPS) between 2005 and 2012, we ask how and to what extent Latin American migrants’ propensity to live in extended or multigenerational households increases in an economic recession. The results suggest a trend differentiated by gender and highlight the importance not only of economic conditions but also of life events in explaining the probability of living in complex households.
