Migration can serve as an outlet for employment, higher earnings, and reduced income risk for households in developing countries. The 2004â€“2005 Human Development Profile of India survey is used to examine correlations between the receipt of remittances from internal migrants and human capital investment in rural areas. A propensity scoreâ€“matching approach to account for the selectivity of households is used into receiving remittances. [IFPRI Discussion Paper 00858].
