Migration, Urban Informal Sector and Agricultural Efficiency in India

"This book is an endeavor to bridge the gap between theoretical works and empirical studies in migration comprising both urban and rural sector simulataneously. Attempts have been made in this study to examine the nature, pattern and determinants of rural-urban migration in India with a special focus on family migration decision, rural-urban migration and the spread of urban migration on agricultural productivity and efficiency taking West Bengal as case study. The novelty of the book lies in its rich analytical foundation and the use of sophisticated statistical and econometric tools to understand the dynamics of rural-urban migration and its complex interrelationship with urban informal sector and agricultural sector. It is visualized that the findings of the study would be useful in particular to the researchers of labour economics, urban studies, demography and sociology. It is expected that the study would also be useful to the planners, policy makers and academicians in general."
