As in many other developing countries, migration has become a key component of the Cuban economy. This brief paper presents the results of two random surveys conducted on Cubans in the United States and in Cuba about migration, remittances and ownership of financial assets. The findings are also compared with a previous survey conducted in 2005 and point to a trend of change and continuity.
