Abstract
A large influx of inter-state migrants to the Chennai Metropolitan area, one of the regions having avenues for livelihoods in various elementary occupations, has been observed in the recent years. This study attempted to analyse the economic and household enhancements of the inter-state migrant workers working in the Chennai Metropolitan area in Tamil Nadu. Around 477 migrant workers in 21 elementary occupations were interviewed. The result showed that around 71 per cent of them had moderately improved their economic and household situations, next 18.4 per cent of them had highly improved their economic and household status and around 10 per cent of them had low levels of economic and household status.
