Research and studies

Research is a key component of Center’s agenda. There is almost no secondary information about the workers that the Centre seeks to organize. Majority of the workers in the informal sector are seasonal migrants. However there exists no secondary data about the migration patterns. Both the official surveys – Census and NSSO – do not capture seasonal migration for wage labor adequately. In such a scenario, Centre has undertaken its own mapping exercises that document socio economic profile of workers, migration patterns, modes of recruitment, working and living conditions, and wage rates. The list of studies undertaken / sponsored by the Centre is given below
