dc.description.abstractThe economic literature has largely overlooked the importance of repeat migration.This paper studies repeat or circular migration as it is manifested by the frequency of exitsof migrants living in Germany, and by the number of years being away from the host countryusing count data models. More than 60% of the guestworker generation currently living inGermany, the largest European immigration country, are indeed repeat migrants. Thefindings indicate that immigrants from European countries, the less educated, those withweak labor market attachements, the younger and the older people (excluding the middleages), and the newcomers and the more seasoned are significantly more likely to engage incircular migration and to stay out of Germany for longer. Males exit more frequently thanfemales but do not differ in the time spent out. Those migrants with family in the homecountry remain out longer but are not more frequently out.en_US
