Background<br />An important event in many young people’s lives is moving out of the parental home. This event is often operationalized as the distance between parents and their children, i.e., parent-child proximity.<br /><br />Methods<br />The present study (N = 1,451) analyzed correlates of parent-child proximity through the lens of human value theory (Schwartz, Advances in experimental social psychology, 1992). Besides a classical proximity measure (i.e., parent-child), we also calculated the distance between childhood and current place of residence (i.e., childhood-now), as well as parent-childhood proximity (distance between children’s childhood place of residence and the current place of residence of parents), which acts as a control group because this distance is most probably chosen by the parents.<br /><br />Results<br />As hypothesized, we found that participants valuing universalism and self-direction as important (i.e., associated with growth and anxiety-freedom) moved further away from the place where their parents live and the place where they grew up than participants valuing self-protection and anxiety-avoidance (e.g., tradition, security, conformity).<br /><br />Conclusions<br />This study not only adds to research on psychological motivations to move, it endorses value theory as being a useful lens through which to analyze migration behavior. 2016-06-09T07:55:29Z Lewetz, David 2016-06-09T07:55:29Z 2016-12 Lewetz, David Parent-child proximity and personality : basic human values and moving distance eng Stieger, Stefan Stieger, Stefan
