- the political or economic stability/instability of the immigrant’s home country;
- the political or economic stability/instability of the country the immigrant is seeking admission to;
- the legal or illegal status of the immigrant within a host country; or
- demographic variables pertaining to the immigrant such as his or her wealth, income, ethnicity, educational background, political status, family size, or other relevant variables?
