According to census 2001, the total population of India is 1028 million consisting of 532 million men and 496 million women. India is geographically divided in to 28 states and 7 Union Territories. There is a tremendous variation in the aggregate population size across the state. It varies from 0.54 million in Sikkim to 166.2 million in Uttar Pradesh. The latest census 2001 data on migration released by the Government of India showed that, migration has increased: 30 per cent of the population or 307 million people were classified as migrants compared with 27.4 per cent of the population or 232 million people out of the total population of 838 million people in India in 1991. Of these, nearly one-third had migrated in the previous decade. However of the total, nearly 44 per cent had moved for marriage (mainly women) and only 14.7 per cent had moved for employment. Rural–rural migration continued to account for the bulk of movements (54.7 per cent) but had reduced during the previous decade. Movements from one urban area to another accounted for 14.7 per cent and the rest were urban–rural migrants. In this study the migration Behaviour of agricultural labourers were studied under various dimensions.
