This study applies sequence analysis (SA) to capture the longitudinal parental migrant trajectories in Indonesia and the Philippines using data from the Child Health and Migrant Parents in South-East Asia (CHAMPSEA) project. SA was performed to visualize parental migrant trajectories, and typology analysis further identified the patterns of the trajectories. The study is the first to apply SA to the analysis of combined parental migration trajectories and offers insight into the consequences of longer-term parental migrant experiences for children’s health and well-being in Southeast Asia.
