Abstract

This paper analysed the effect of marital status of household members amongst 10 villages on the remittance determinants of remittance receiving households in rural Bangladesh from Italy. Using micro-economic data from a survey conducted in 2013, multivariate analysis was carried out on 300 rural households. The empirical findings provided that the remittance micro-economic determinants are associates with socio-economic that vary from married to unmarried migrant and household head at the same community level of the households. The study suggests that marital status has strong correlation with socio-economic as well as socio-demographic characteristics in the remittance behaviour of Bangladeshi households. Thus highlight the importance of differentiating with respect to marital status when analysing the determinants of remittances.
