This paper analysed the effect of the relation of the household head to the migrant amongst 10 villages on the remittance determinants and their socioeconomic impacts of remittance receiving households in rural Bangladesh. Using micro-economic data from a survey conducted in 2013, statistical analysis was carried out on 300 rural households. The empirical findings provided that the household head relation to the migrant such as father, mother, wife and brother has variation of remittance determinants and their socioeconomic impact in rural area at the origin. The household unit analysis also showed that remittance determinants and socio-economic impact vary from household head relation at the same community level of households. Moreover, relationship between the socioeconomic impact from remittance and demographic determinants also vary due to the household head relationship discrimination among the same rural area at the origin country.
