Abstract

Reverse migration in Malaysia is a relatively new emerging phenomenon where the migrants have intentionally chosen to return to their hometown for better living. Thus, there is a demand to investigate the determinants that lead to these changing population mobility trends in Malaysia. This study adopts the systematic literature review to identify the determinant factors of reverse migration. The aim is to analyse empirical studies to determine factors in reverse migration. Consequently, the findings have revealed several determinants: following family, career, environment, economic reason, quality of life, and social aspect as the driving factors towards achieving subsistence living.

Keywords: reverse migration, systematic literature review, determinant, Malaysia
