A new data from three village panchayats in northwest Tamil Nadu is shown and an investigation of the associations between demographic and socioeconomic factors with temporary labour migration from this setting is done. Individual (n = 1110) and household (n = 278) level logistic regression models were used to demonstrate how factors at each of these levels can influence temporary labour migration trajectories. Young males were most likely to temporarily migrate for work from this region. Additionally, large households from historically disadvantaged castes with marginal land and housing were most likely to have at least one migrant member.
