Young people in Guernsey are "desperate to leave the island", according to a new report.
The study by anthropology student Pete Busche asked a group of about 40 people aged 16 to 20 what their ambitions were and 60% answered to "leave the island."
Mr Busche from Brigham Young University, Utah, spent two months in Guernsey interviewing young people.
"This desire to leave is present during adolescent years but fades away as people move into their 20s," he said.
