Estimates of workers commuting from rural to urban and urban to rural India: A Note
We provide estimates of workers residing in rural (urban) India and commuting to urban (rural) areas for work. The estimates are based on National Sample Survey Organisation's survey of Employment and Unemployment (2009-10). In 2009-10, a total number of 8.05 million workers not engaged in agriculture commuted from rural to urban areas for work while 4.37 million workers not engaged in agriculture commuted from urban to rural areas for work. We argue that the size of the rural and urban labour force should be adjusted to account for the workers who commute to a location different from their usual place of residence.
