Summary This book examines the impact of migration on income, expenditure and poverty for internal and international migrants relative to non-migrant households. It builds on earlier studies which have concluded that migration reduces poverty, increases income and expands the range of goods and services consumed by a large section of those households who participate in international migration. The impact of internal migration on poverty may not be as pronounced as it is in case of international migration, yet it creates opportunities for additional income without which the economic and social well-being would have further deteriorated. The contribution of this book is that it goes beyond a static analysis of the state of poverty and growth in income and expenditure in response to the migration choices in the Bangladeshi context. This book studies the dynamics in such trends through basing the analysis on the SDC and RMMRU panel survey 2014 and 2017. The panel survey gathered data on the same households at a three year interval. It allows estimation of the trends in poverty and income and consumption growth patterns in a dynamic setting. An additional contribution of the book is to dissect the findings through a gendered lens. In the Bangladeshi context, the participation of women as principal migrants has increased manifold over the last few years. This book systematically analyses heterogeneity in migration outcomes across the sexes.
