Turk-3-generations2000 Families: identifying the research potential of an origins-of migration study is a Centre for Research and Analysis of Migration Working Paper.

The paper outlines the development, data and design of the 2000 Families study, an origins-of-migration study, capturing the country of origin (Turkey), the family origins and the originating causes of migration processes and outcomes.

The resulting data comprised nearly 2,000 migrant and non-migrant Turkish families with members across three or more generations, covering. 50,000 individuals. The paper considers the potential of this study for migration research.
