Record #188462:

Moving or staying for the best part of life: theory and evidence for the role of subsistence in migration and well-being of Arctic Iñupiat residents / Matthew Berman.

Title: Moving or staying for the best part of life: theory and evidence for the role of subsistence in migration and well-being of Arctic Iñupiat residents / Matthew Berman.
Author(s): Berman, Matthew.
Date: 2009.
In: Polar Geography. (2009.), Vol. 32(1-2) (2009)
Abstract: Introduces two views of subsistence: employer of last resort for people unable to find paying jobs; and productive activity contributing to quality of life in rural Arctic communities. Addresses four main issues concerning role played by traditional activities in creating well-being in contemporary Arctic communities: theoretical tools needed to determine which view of subsistence has more empirical support; predictability of importance of subsistence to individuals and households; difference among communities in mix of opportunities to participate in subsistence; and relative importance of subsistence and wage-earning opportunities for Iñupiat residents of Arctic Alaska.
