    Project Details

    Description

    This project addresses how rural-urban migration improves individual income in China and Indonesia and whether the gain from migration differs between the two countries. Empirical evidence on the effectiveness of migration is important because it is necessary knowledge to formulate an efficient policy to eradicate rural poverty in developing countries. While facilitating migration might simultaneously contribute to the reduction of rural poverty with other measures (e.g., investment in industrial development in rural areas and enhancement of agricultural productivity), in order to design an efficient policy, it is imperative to understand how each measure contributes to the improvement of individual income.
