BROADER CONCEPT
SCOPE NOTE
  • Movement of individuals from one place to another within the home community. For humans, these movements consist most basically of young men and women moving from one family to another in marriage. Thus, many and perhaps most humans experience home-community migration, as they start new families of their own. In patrilineal systems, it is women who move from one family to another to marry the men and produce the next generation. In matrilineal systems, in contrast, the tendency is for the women to stay with the family into which they were born, and for men to move from one family to another.
