Abstract

In this paper, behavioural differentials of members in two categories of households pertaining to labour force participation, schooling of children and consumption patterns are studied. In addition, the attitudinal and personality changes of married females and children are discussed. Furthermore, some clinical evidence on the psychological effects of emigration on wives and children left behind are provided.
