Abstract

By treating females as associational migrants, migration research in India undermines the significance of various factors, specifically the economic ones, which determine migration behaviour. However, the process of globalisation has a strong impact on female mobility patterns and the major impetus for female migration has changed from social to economic reasons. Using Census data and applying OLS regression method, a district level analysis has been carried out to explore the determinants of female migration. The study finds that economic factors significantly influence female migration.
