Family Migration and Early Life Outcomes FAMELO Project: Migrant Interview Augmentation grant

This project adds a new migrant survey component to the NIH-funded Family Migration Context and Early Life Outcomes Project (FAMELO), which examines the impact of migration by family members on household children age 5-17 in terms of socio-emotional adjustment, socialization, schooling, and transition to adulthood. The new component conducts telephone surveys of migrants from Nepal to the Gulf States, the destination of most Nepali work migrants, assessing their working conditions, the strength of their bonds with children at home, and the amount of remittances they send home. In addition, a subset of migrants currently living in non-Gulf regions (e.g., Southeast and East Asia, and other places in Nepal) is surveyed for comparison purposes. Because the existing FAMELO collects retrospective migration history from all households, this new component will allow comparison of households with past migration experience to those with current and no migration experience. The survey draws on a multidisciplinary team with extensive experience collecting data in Nepal and studying Nepali migrants in the Gulf States.
