This project utilises the ‘Fuzzy Set Approach” to measure multidimensional poverty of migrant households, especially families left behind, in Vietnam.. Until now the government of Vietnam has applied income and expenditure approaches to identify poor households, these measures that do not fully capture the multidimensional nature of poverty, which are expressed in both income (expenditure) and non-income indicators. Although there have been a number of studies on rural-urban migration, most of them have investigated the determinants and effects of migration on destination areas instead of sending areas of migration. This project, therefore, aims to study the effects of migration on sending areas and thus to contribute to scholarship on migration and ultimately help Vietnamese policy makers to determine suitable strategies to effectively develop poverty alleviation programs and improve the welfare of migrants.
