Blurb/Shorttext:
The book provides a lucid presentation on the determinants and consequences of rural outmigration of children and youth commonplace in the developing world, using descriptive and inferential statistics. Ever increasing rural population, shortage of cultivable land and stagnation in agriculture, indebtedness, peer influence, unemployment and lack of alternative sources of income, laborious and poor rural living and working conditions, widespread rural education, and improvements in transportation and communication induce rural exodus. It presents the implications of outmigration of children and youth from rural areas on the socioeconomic and demographic behavior of the migrant-sending households. The book also offers an in-depth analysis of the role of internal migration in poverty reduction and livelihoods enhancement, asset and human capital formation, technology transfer, reducing the necessity to incur debt, reduction of human fertility levels, harmonizing human-environment relations, and promoting rural-urban linkages.As such, it could be of help to academicians, administrators, planners and researchers.
