Rural Training Centers to Unlock Female Labor

Through randomized controlled trial we are trying to understand the impacts of rural training centers on women, their households and their communities.

  • The female labor force participation rate in India fell from 36% in 2005-06 to 24% in 2015-16.
  • We are randomizing the placement of 10 rural training centers across 20 regions in Karnataka and Andhra Pradesh to study the impacts of migrant employment opportunities.
  • Preliminary data collected through Participatory Rural Appraisals in 1300 villages across 53 taluks in Karnataka shows that for 57% of women the primary activity is working on the family farm.
