Like military service following the Great Depression, the residential preferences of today’s rural youth provide a window on their agency and their potential to overcome the disadvantages of a declining region. We ask whether and how family influences affect such preferences. The desire to settle near family and in one’s “hometown” must eventually be reconciled to the migration requirements of a preferred line of work (Hektner, 1994; Schonert-Reichl & Elliot, 1994).

Using the Baltimore Study data set, we examined the characteristics of teenage mothers in 1968 and 1988, looking at two generations within the same families. Our primary interest was to determine if the second generation of teenage mothers fared as well as their mothers at the same point in the life course or if they did less well.
