The Logic of Letting Go: Family and Individual Migration from Rural Bangladesh
This paper studies rural-urban migration by married males in Bangladesh as a two-outcome process consisting of individual moves and family moves. The family/individual distinction is relevant to issues of rural development, urban planning, and old-age dependency since family migration involves the transfer of not only a conjugal family's production, but also its consumption, to the city. The paper presents the results of a logistic hazard analysis of the migration patterns of men in Matlab Thana over a three-year period from 1984 to 1986, employing surveillance and census data.
