Abstract


Migration is a permanent or temporary change of the citizens typically recognised as some type of administrative boundary occurring across region or country. Unlike the singularly occurring demographic events of birth and death a person may migrate many times, for varied durations and beyond numerous territorial boarders (Wood, 1994). The aim of this study was to explore the differences in Adjustment and well-being in first generation and second generation of Kashmiri migrants. A mixed sample of 500 subjects was taken, out of which 250 was of first generation migrants and 250 of second generation migrants. First generation subjects belonged to an age group of 45 to 60 years and second generation subjects belonged to an age group of 21 to 25 years. Friedman well-being scale, and Bell adjustment inventory were used to measure the above variables. The data was analyzed by using t-test. Results revealed that second generation migrants had higher Adjustment and well-being than first generation migrants.
