Abstract

This study aimed to analyze the distribution of second-generation settlements of transmigrants as well as the socio-economic factors that affect them. The results of the study found that the distribution of second-generation settlements of transmigrants in Jambi Province were still large within the village. Only about one-fifth has left the village. The main reason of the second-generation still living in the village is the availability of relatively large land. On the contrary, the main reason the second generation came out of the village was to earn a better income. Furthermore, socio-economic factors which are signed by the decision of the second generation of transmigrants to choose between living in the village and outside the village are the factors of education, employment status, business field, parental-origin province, parental education and the main commodity of transmigration sites.
