We analyze emigration from the United States to the European Union over the last 30 years. Few empirical studies have been conducted on this topic and theorization on this type of migration is overlooked. US emigration appears “too small” when compared to other developed countries but “too large” to be explained through classic migration theories. Specific and counterbalancing forces seem to have been associated with US emigration over time: on the one hand, family-formation and EU-US economic-integration have triggered US outward movements while, on the other, the increase of income inequality and home-owners’ proportion has constrained the US emigration propensity.
