Migration has been an important aspect of the demographic landscape in Chhattisgarh. To know the effect of rural migration, data were taken from eight selected villages of Chhattisgarh during the year 2001-2002. A total of 80 migrant farmers were selected randomly and personally interviewed with the help of the structured interview schedule. Data were analyzed with the help of suitable statistical analysis.
