Networks, Employment, dEbt, Mobilities and Skills in India Survey (NEEMSIS)

The NEEMSIS aims at understanding the links between labour, skills, social and professional dynamics and social networks formation in South India.

It explores how the formation of skills and social networks, especially those defined at the community and individual levels, influence the characteristics of individuals’ trajectories in terms of social status, employment and migration.

This NEEMSIS data collection is the continuity of Rural Microfinance and Employment Survey collected in 2010, and provides therefore a household and individual panel dataset in rural South India.

This blog gathers the results, data, pictures, events and publications stemming from the NEEMSIS, that was implemented from August 2016 to May 2017 in South India (Tamil Nadu), and supervised by a team of IRD and IFP researchers in Pondicherry.
