dc.description.abstract Note: See the PDF Version Labour migration from agricultural sector to other sectors in developing countries has become a trend as migration has a positive impact on households' income. As migration is a viable opportunity to better their economic status, family members who migrate often diversify the sources of income and risk their households. More in the context, tea plantation sector of Sri Lanka is now experiencing labor shortages due to labor outmigration from the sector. Low profile stigma attached to plantation worker and poverty among the workers has compelled them to migrate in search of better opportunities outside this sector. Migration outflows come along with certain monetary inflows. Remittances from migration increase the household welfare (Massey et al., 1993). In the long term migration and the remittances of migrants may play a large role in the household's development strategy (Rozella et al., 2003). Therefore, finding the impact of labor migration from tea plantation sector would offer a better contribution to the migration studies. en_US
