Record #139201:

Outmigration and gender balance in Greenland / Lawrence C. Hamilton, Rasmus Ole Rasmussen, Nicholas E. Flanders, Carole L. Seyfrit.

Title: Outmigration and gender balance in Greenland / Lawrence C. Hamilton, Rasmus Ole Rasmussen, Nicholas E. Flanders, Carole L. Seyfrit.
Author(s): Hamilton, Lawrence C.
Rasmussen, Rasmus Ole.
Flanders, Nicholas E.
Seyfrit, Carole L.
Date: 1996.
In: Arctic Anthropology. (1996.), Vol. 33(1) (1996)
Abstract: Authors who found disproportionate migration of young women from native villages in Alaska replicated parts of Alaskan research in Greenland. Differences in details reflect unique aspects of communities, policies and history. Greenland depends at present for main income on shrimp exports and block grants from Denmark. Both countries have phenomenon of "modern women, traditional men" to cope with. It means that more Greenland women than men marry Danes. Men have higher mortality rate. Comparison is closest with bush Alaska. Best hope of evening-out sex ratio is current decentralization policy.
