Abstract

In this study, I analyze the significant factors that are driving Caribbean immigration to the United States. This study looks at 21 Caribbean countries through a linear, random-effects panel model in STATA. Through various variables, I take into account the political, economic, and social factors of an individual's decision to immigrate to the U.S. I cross analyze the variables through time to see which ones significantly influence immigration. The question of the research is whether immigration to the U.S. is driven by political instability or economic factors. The results show that Caribbean immigration is mostly influenced by economic factors and views on the U.S.
