Abstract

This paper has as main purpose both the description and the validation of a set of hypothetical traits, corresponding to some profiles of the students from Alexandru Ioan Cuza University of Iasi (Romania), regarding their migration intentions, based on a questionnaire survey consistent in terms of number and structure of variables and responses. There are some arguments to justify the complex and cross-sectional attributes of the study. The first to be mentioned among such reasons is the constructivist approach behind the process, oriented to both data cleansing and intrinsic and extrinsic derivations. Then, the collaborative and distributed way of both entering the data, through a shared input form and writing and reviewing the article ideas, the comparative style and the multidimensional used context-based analysis methods, constitute another solid arguments to justify this scientific research. The results were presented as a set of specific traits, confirming some of the a priori profiles identified on our initial hypothesis. These ideas were basically confirmed after performing many comparative analysis, based on the collected questionnaire data, showing important differentiation among two heterogenous groups of students.

Keywords: Migration, questionnaire data, comparative analysis methods, students’ profiles
