Amita Shah
Animesh Kumar


This paper aims at examining the existing evidence on the link between migration and poverty with special focus on short duration migration. Since much of the existing evidence is based on individual/household attributes of the migrants, the paper tries to examine the impact of village/district level characteristics in influencing short duration migration by using large scale data set covering about 1500 villages across different parts of the country.
