|Abstract:||This study examines a global sample of forty small islands less than three million in population, 14 characterized by chronic immigration and 26 typified by chronic emigration. It constructs separate socio-economic and demographic profiles of the two island groups using means difference analysis across twenty-two indicators. The paper concludes that the immigrant islands are significantly more economically and socially advanced and demographically mature than their emigrant counterparts. It argues indirectly that the source of the former’s affluence is their greater degree of postwar diversification, especially towards international tourism, offshore banking and export manufacturing.|
