It is widely argued that second home demand causes the displacement of permanentresidents. This study examines the displacement theory by looking at three case islands inthe Stockholm archipelago, scrutinizing the development of population figures and secondhomes. Results show that the individuals migrating from these islands are improving theirsituation compared to prior to their migration; there are also signs that the decision tomigrate is associated with major events in life such as studies, job opportunities and familyformation. Hence, this study questions the simplified suggestion that there is a widespreaddisplacement of people due to outside demand for second homes.
