Specifically, study will (i) examine how migration affects the survival, well-being, and development of children left behind by migrating parents looking at changes in a multidimensional context, and (ii) address impact of migration on children left behind by looking into four different child outcome related components, namely: health, education, economic activity (child work), and psycho-social effects.
