Some specific objectives are to provide better understandings of migration and remittances through household surveys. By enhancing the knowledge regarding migrant remittances sending or receiving, these data will be a reliable input for policy-makers. The survey will provide information on migrant and non-migrant households' socioeconomic characteristics and how they send remittances back home. Appropriate approach and methodology will be applied to carry out the survey activities for high quality data.
