Structural Change in Bihar's Rural Economy

Findings from a Longitudinal Study

This paper is derived from the Institute of Human Development Research Programme on Inclusive Development in Bihar, and includes contributions by other members of the research team, notably Sunil Kumar Mishra (survey and statistics), Amrita Datta (in particular, analysis of migration and income) and Janine Rodgers (especially work on occupation and gender). The paper is largely based on a presentation in the International Conference on “Policy Options and Investment Priorities for Accelerating Agricultural Productivity and Development in India,” organised by the Indira Gandhi Institute of Development Research and Institute for Human Development, New Delhi on 10–11 November 2011.
