Data

Labor migration and structural change in rural labor markets
This page stores data that my collaborators and I have collected for the project "Labor migration and structural change in rural labor markets". Data collection and digitization was funded by the UK Department for International Development (DFID) and the Institute for the Study of Labor (IZA) for the benefit of developing countries (GA-C2-RA4-181). For each survey/report, we provide original documentation (survey instrument and/or metadata, or final report) and up to three types of files (zip folders): a folder of scanned tables from each report, digitized data in excel format, or STATA *.dta files. Stata files are version 13.0.

You can find a list of available tables for each dataset in this metadata file
