The analysis of off-farm migration is significant because of its
effect on the share of agricultural labor. Results of such studies show
the positive relation of rate of migration with the income differential
between agriculture and nonagriculture sectors. Off-farm migration
simultaneously leads to an increase of income in the rural sector and to
the development of non-agriculture. Although the process is likely to
span generations, a study of the process is recommended because of its
effect on the dynamics of labor allocation.
