Towards a Reconsideration of Female Migration Patterns in Burkina Faso
years in Burkina Faso. We examine migration paths and reasons for moving
between ages 12 and 25 for women of rural origin using event history data
drawn from the Migration Dynamics, Urban Integration and Environment in
Burkina Faso National Survey conducted in 2000. The results show that female
migration patterns are changing in a subtle and complex way. Women are
emigrating more out of rural areas and experiencing increased multiple move
trajectories. Motives are also less-family driven and more related to education
and labour market considerations.
