Agricultural Productivity Shocks, Labor Reallocation, and Rural-Urban Migration in China

Luigi Minale ()

Working Papers from eSocialSciences

Abstract: This paper analyses the way households in rural China use rural-urban migration and off-farm work as a response to negative productivity shocks in agriculture. I employ various waves of a longitudinal survey to construct a panel of individual migration and labour supply histories, and match them to detailed weather information, which I use to instrument agricultural productivity.
