Advisor: YOTHIN SAWANGDEE
Abstract:

This research investigates the influence of existential locality and labor force age out-migration on elderly and children’s living arrangement. While the role of people in community on taking care of those who are vulnerable has been found in terms of qualitative view, but for quantitative side, there are not many studies trying to prove the existence of formal and informal kinship role on the troublesome matters of living arrangement when the situation of labor force age migration has occurred. So, the study is useful in providing better understanding on the role of formal and informal kin on labor migration and the left behind. The data source is the Kanchanaburi Demographic Surveillance System (KDSS) Round 5 (2004). Persons in three age groups as child ages (0-14), working ages (15-59) and elderly ages (60 and over) are included in the analysis. The findings revealed that the existential locality measured as having two houses and over decreases the likelihood to migrate out by comparing with those who have less than two houses of the existential locality. For migration duration, the finding showed that the higher density of houses leads migrants migrating for shorter period. The findings of this research also reveal that an elderly who has existential locality of having two houses and over has high probability to live with other, instead of living with their grandchildren as the intergeneration. This pattern is also found in children’s living arrangement as having existential locality leads a child living with other more than living with their grandparents. The findings mainly indicate the strong existence of the social ties in Thai society also confirm the role of the community on taking the main responsibility for taking care those who are left behind.
