NEEMSIS survey

The NEEMSIS Survey is the core of our quantitative data. It is a socio-economic panel survey conducted in rural Tamil Nadu with two data points: 2016-17 and 2020-21. The NEEMSIS survey aim at understanding the links between labour, skills, social and migration dynamics and social networks formation in India. It explores how the formation of skills and social networks, especially those defined at the community and individual levels, influence observed inequalities in individuals’ trajectories in terms of social status (class, caste, gender, ethnicity, religion), employment and migration. This includes the investigation of various forces at play, spanning from the role of social structure (norms and institutions), the development and use of social networks, to the formation of cognitive and non-cognitive skills.
