      The participation of women in the urban labor force and in rural-urban migration in India by Myra Marx Ferree (Book) 3 editions published Gugler, Josef Nico Michael Gugler, Joseph. Josef Gugler born ; VIAF rural–urban migration and development Rural to urban migration has become a key issue in the study of economic development, but whether it should be promoted or discouraged is a debatable topic. As discussed in the preceding chapters, rural-urban migration has both positive and negative effects on the migrants, the place of origin and the place.

      Migration as family strategy: Rural-urban labor migration in India during the twentieth century. De Haan, Arjan // History of the Family; , Vol. 2 Issue 4, p Presents a study which aimed to assess the role of families and family strategies in rural-urban migration in India during the twentieth century. For example, the immigration of Dominican and Colombia immigrants to New York City increased the rate of female labor force participation greatly (Gurak and Kriz,); immigrant women are more employable in labor- intensive industries than their male counterparts due to patriarchal assumptions that women can afford to work less-paid, more.

      only important cause of rural-urban migration. The extent of rural-urban migration in India is too small to have any significant impact on the productive potential of the rural population. No doubt, the migrants are mostly males, in the most productive age-group and educated, but they form a small proportion of the rural labour force. MIGRATION. Migration did not play an important role either. We use a simple two sector model of structural transformation to rationalize the rural-urban convergence in India as the consequence of (a) higher labor supply growth in urban areas; and (b) aggregate productivity growth.
